^^ I'm not thinking of the next upgrade yet. And I don't think I will be going the Eclipse way. Maybe I'll wait and get something even better. Or maybe not.

I think you should never regret spending money on something you enjoy. If something gives us pleasure, if we can afford it, and if it is not (unreasonably) immoral/"unfair" (heh, heh), we should buy it when we can. We will continue enjoying the pleasure even at a time when money is dear.

Furthermore, if you don't buy what you want when you can afford it, you will definitely not be able to buy it when money is dear.

Not everybody will agree to this, but believe me, doing things this way has not failed me yet. I just need to exercise some prudence while spending money on things that are really unnecessary (to the way I lead my life). I generally skimp on things of short-term pleasure (train journey instead of journey by air, reasonable accommodation instead of luxurious hotels etc etc to give some examples) and invest the money so saved, in things of long-term pleasure (ICE, Gadgets, etc.). This is of course when we speak of spending on things for myself.

End of philosophical rambling

Kya, Frank, I know you're as nuts as I am! Nope, no HU plans for a while. Not unless I get a few really good months of business in a row. This upgrade has already put me in debt.

Thank you, nura. I'm posting some (bad) pics for now. Will post better ones soon. I totally forgot to take pics of the ICE during yesterday's meet.

JK, not any time soon. Thinde ksheenam onnu marikotte

@abhibh, like KK said, the XOs are behind the center-console, under the dash.

@kk, the distribution block is just below the S44 (on the left). Will post pics when I can manage to get a good cam (or some time)

If I were you I'd put a grill on the sub and move it to once side so atleast a golf bag will fit in the rest of the space.

If I was you Hydra, I would take golf lessons before buying that golf bag, lol.

Congratulations on the upgrade.

Thank you, Prajesh!

Navin, I don't use the boot for luggage. Nothing gets put in the boot when the sub is in. If there is absolutely no option but to carry bags etc, I remove the sub. I also leave the parcel tray on, esp. when I have passengers in the back (esp. kids *gulp*), so purses/shopping/toys etc don't get "accidentally" thrown into the boot. The parcel tray is also important for ummm, stealth purposes. I'd removed it just for the photo. That said, I will get a grill fixed, if when I find a nicely made one that I like. Nothing like extra protection, huh?

Thank you, Sam!

Great going buddy, amazing stuff there. If I can come to Cochin before I leave the country, then spare an hour for me for audition, with my saxophone CD .

Interesting quote. Very true as well - can totally relate! Which is why, I blow up money doin the km I do - but the car is still unICED (and it is on its way to completing 14k in just over 6 months).

Now before I am struck down by the wrath of the ICE gods, I better disappear!!

Thank you, Jay! We will definitely meet up. I have to return your CD too

Thank you, Hitanshu! Good to know somebody related to my philosophy.
I wish my work would let me drive as much as you do *jealous*. I'd get more time to enjoy the ICE too!
