Samara turned 5 in April, a few days after Myra came home. With around 80K kms under her belt, all she needed to celebrate was a new engine timing belt and a nice day at the car spa. Interestingly, in spite of having a brand new expensive set of wheels in the garage, Samara still rules the roost at least when it comes to reliability! No wonder, when we had to spend 3 days in Mumbai with the extended family, it was Samara that made the cut :)
One of the main differences from the Samara of the last 5 years is that she no longer sports the tinted glasses - with cops getting super serious about enforcing the no-tints rule, a few weeks back, they had to be stripped off! Does rob her a lot of the oomph, but other than that, it hasn't really made too much of a difference (to the cooling and heat inside, for example).
Here's wishing Samara another glorious 5 years and many, many more kms of exciting drives!
