Pretty serious! It had to last till I get home.
Don't tell me you were listening to music on that ICE.

You should have been happier listening to the MIVEC engine.

Default Audio for swift

Hi ,
I too own a swift and am in the process of getting audio system for my car. I have shortlisted Blau Hamburg HU for same reasons as mentioned here. But couldnt get a good review on it. Can anybody suggest me if this is a good setup to go for.

Am a novice here, and in the world of car accessories too. Your suggestions wud be great help to me. I have a budget of max 25K.

If there's any better setup, pls suggest.

Have read a lot on the threads. But couldnt reach a conclusion. Shortlisted by wots available in market and what met my demands.

Thanks in advance friends,

I would like to mention have learnt a lot by reading the posts on forum. Right from pre inspection cheks to what all should be mandatory for my car and facts on driving. Its too good place to get even basic info with logics.

Great place to be when u fond of cars!

I doubt abt the pricing of speakers. Can someone clarify.

150Rs for install sure is fishy.

With Bill but without warranty?!? What is that about? I assume you mean a kachcha bill without the shop's name / address / phone no. or the signature of the dealer. Because otherwise, on the basis of a valid bill, you will have warranty.

OT - There was a time when Intel CPUs were available either OEM pack with a 15-day warranty or box packed with a 3-year warranty. Both options were with bill. I am not sure if it is a somewhat similar scenario with Manyu's speakers.
