Starting off...

I have a couple of rants planned for later today, but first to answer the comment where I asked 95FM to play more contemporary music - why am I still bombared by 2006 or 2007 music, Mika and Timbaland for god's sake! It's June 2008, and I haven't ever a song from big albums last year - In Rainbows, Raising Sand, or even for that matter new cutting-edge hip-hop. And don't radio stations usually get albums before they launch, P2P networks certainly do. Remind me that when I buy my new car, buy one with a iPod plug-in. I've found FF3 to be fairly stable on three different machines.
Anyway, as a Delhi-ite we've suffered at the airports, now we're going to also suffer thanks to rising air-fares, but this is supposed to be the future for Delhi airport! I'll believe it when I see it!

That is what I thought when the Hyderabad airport plans were unveiled about 4 years back . Today its a reality. May be Delhi Airport will get there too

Never mind the IPod plug-in. you would be better off with a Blue Tooth enabled stereo. Sony has a neat one, I know, I know, Sony yada yada, but with the right speakers it is good.

What car are you buying, incidentally?

iPod plug-in's aren't that difficult to come by nowadays. I have a Sony stereo in my car right now. Bluetooth is fine, but my ain't Bluetooth non?

try listening to air fm rainbow. their western music shows are at particular times, 8 am to 10 am, 2-3 pm, 5-6 pm, 8-9 pm, 10-11 pm and i believe there is one at midnight as well. the RJs don't depend on AIR to provide the music so they get their own music and they play the latest. of course depends on the show. if it is meant for oldies, you won't get coldplay's latest album but on some other show you just might.

Bluetooth will get you joy on the mobile phone speak hands free when alone . . . and since it is your car ANYBODY else with a bluetooth phone will either speak with full public participation or disconnect because you control the stereo, right? There is one model which has both bluetooth and USB too, for shade under 8k, add about 7-10k for good speakers, and you be set.

you just bought a car... how greedy can you get?

Hardly just bought a car, its four years old. C'mon I'm total consumerist sucker - plus I need a Diesel car. Why should richer people in my bloodline get away with paying for cheaper fuel just because they drive Terracan's!

Suzuki Maruti Swift VDi with ABS. After purchase, bring it to another senior politician's sibling, and get him to work on it so that when you press the throttle your head will snap backwards and we will all thank automobile design for neck restraints.
