Looking forward...

Hello October

Hello October! January! March!*

The Best CAR Blog Ever completed 4 awesome years in October 2016. And I have to admit, it has been a wonderful journey so far for me. I have even ventured successfully on to writing more about other topics than Cars – something that I had not thought of doing before. Here’s my other blog if you’re curious.

A lot happened in 2016

At the starting of that year I made promises I couldn’t fulfill and failed at – writing more often,  posting more often on my social channels, Auto Expo 2016 coverage, etc. The only reason for this is my old way of managing my time.

I’ve definitely written thousands of to-do lists on several pages/notes and tried out tens of different apps! But none of them have led me to deliver what I wanted to. Most of my time went in managing my studies, college project and then my startup related work.

Now everything has ended – and new things have begun. I completed my studies in June 2016 & then went on to do an internship for two months with a startup. Then I got a full-time job as a Front End Developer at the same place for multiple good reasons. The biggest being the awesome people I had to work with.

I also bought a monkey bike (Honda Navi) in June and started a group of Honda Navi Owners from Mumbai to go on rides with them! 😁 Fun facts aside I’ve also been gaining some extra weight that I shouldn’t.

A lot has happened in 2017

I attended the Autocar Performance Show 2017 in January; I also covered the launch and experience events for the Tata Hexa – on Instagram** at least. I couldn’t get time to write about them. They are in my drafts. I’ll get them out of the drafts just like this post* soon!

There was also a Volkswagen GTI Experience event that I went to and I also attended the Vintage Car Fiesta 2017 organized by the Vintage & Classic Cars Club of India.

Welcome to March everyone!

Two months of 2017 already flew away, 10 more to go! I hope to make the most of them! I read an article that said

“Scheduling is more effective than just making a to-do list”

It might be the way to go with my blogs and all other activities. Less Talking More Doing!!

* Yeah this post was lying around as a draft since October 2016! I tried to finish it and publish it in January also. But it’s finally here!
** Are you following me on Instagram? If not, then please do! I am quite active there. @thebestcarblogever !!

✋ Hello 2016!

Hello everyone!✋ Sid here! Its time to kick start 2016, a new year for my blog and make it much better than 2015 (it was bad, just 2 posts)!

Anyways, without ranting much about the last year, lets get started with what lies ahead in 2016. Two things happen at the start of a new year, in India especially – 🏆 Bollywood Award Shows and Auto Shows! And its obvious where I and you would be interested in (and that’s why you’re here) – the latter one!

First of the list of Auto Shows happening around the world in 2016 is the Detroit Motor Show aka North American International Auto Show. I couldn’t go for the Auto Show (maybe next year, fingers crossed), but I’ll definitely summarize it in the next blog post (post #2 for 2016), highlight the best of the Detroit, and what got me excited. So watch out for that! The auto show is still going on until the 24th of January, so if anyone reading this post, staying anywhere close to Detroit hasn’t been to the Auto Show, go have some fun!

😍 Treat your eyes, 📷 click some pictures and 📩 send me some too!

Once I have the Detroit Auto Show covered in my next blog post, I’ll be starting preparations to attend my first Auto Show of 2016 – in person.

The Best CAR Blog Ever is ✈ going to the Auto Expo 2016!

What are these three year olds upto with a Car?? [Videos]

Here is one video where a three year old son makes awesome expressions to his dad’s drifting in a Subaru Legacy B4 (BE5), which is tuned up to 376 HP and 500 N/m of torque. A must watch!

This is so still believable. And shows the innocence of the kid and how he actually enjoys the ride.

Now watch this video as another three year old picks up a Lancer Evo VI and throws it around on its own literally(almost)!!

I know that’s unbelievable and amazing, and there’s a giveaway behind the secret of how the three-year old is doing it in the video itself.

Notice, that the car’s rear passenger windows are tinted. And watch the video again. At 2:18, you see a third hand on the steering, which obviously doesn’t belong to the three year old! 😀 But kudos to the efforts behind making it!!

What are your views about these videos?? Leave your comments below! Share this your friends! Subscribe to my blog! (Its optional, but easy too! ;)) 🙂

Mercedes Benz India lauched A-Class & B-Class #Edition1

Limited Editions are the best ways to #CelebrateSuccess . Taking these words seriously, Mercedes Benz India launched the A-Class #Edition1 & the B-Class #Edition1 on June 25, 2014.

Mercedes A-Class & B-Class Edition1 Launch Event
Mercedes A-Class & B-Class Edition1 Launch Event

Lets get to know the A-Class #Edition1 first.

The A-Class #Edition1 is based on the current A-180 CDI, with a few exterior and many interior changes (rather, additions). Exterior changes include:

  • New alloys
  • Edition1 Decals (Stickers, developed in India and not available on overseas #Edition1 cars)
  • Gloss black finish on the Outside Rear View Mirrors (ORVMs)
  • A new Panaromic Sunroof

The most important change is the revised Ground Clearance, which is a result of feedback from the customers who bought the A-Class.

On the inside, a number of features are added:

  • Electrical seat adjustment for the passenger seat
  • Reverse Camera
  • An armrest for the rear passengers
  • Edition1 badge on the inside (near the sunroof button).

The engine is the same as the standard A-Class : 2.2Litre Diesel engine, which produces 109bhp & 250Nm of torque, mated with the 7G-Tronic Automatic Gearbox.

The B-Class #Edition1

The B-Class still has no competition in the market, because when it was launched back in September 2012, it created a segment of its own – “Compact Sports Tourer”.

The B-Class #Edition1 has similar exterior changes like its smaller sibling, the A-Class #Edition1:

  • New 17-inch alloys
  • Revised Ground Clearance
  • Gloss black finish on the ORVMs (Exterior Mirror Housing)

Additions on the inside are also the same as the A-Class #Edition1:

  • Rear passenger seat center armrest (with Two cup-holders)
  • Entertainment package (includes the two LCD screens, DVD drive, headphones and remote control)
  • Edition1 badge
  • Reverse Camera

Both the cars are available in three colors: Cirrus White, Polar Silver and Jupiter Red (which is a NEW color for the B-Class). Only diesel variants of the #Edition1 are available.

The A-Class #Edition1 is priced at Rs 26.17 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai), while the B-Class #Edition1 is priced at Rs 28.7 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai).

If all the above features excite you and you really like the A-Class or the B-Class, go buy them NOW! Only 100 A-Class #Edition1 and 100 B-Class #Edition1 will be available. (Remember, I told you they were “Limited” Editions!).

Let me know in the Comments if these Cars have impressed you and if you will actually buy one of them and why. Looking forward to your views.
