Default abhipuru1.6'S ICE- Ford Fiesta 1.6S- First Steps towards THE WORLD OF PURE MUSIC

Stock Looks- CHECK
No modifications anywhere- CHECK
Clean and Natural Vocals- CHECK
Tight Bass- CHECK
Tuning- Not yet, LBM sir busy.

I got test tone CD, multimeter, screwdriver, but no experience.
My first ever- "BOOPHER-WAALI GAADI"

After LBM sirji plays his magic wand, I am sure I would be further surprised.

Watch this thread!

Sorry to clear the air Nitrousji but the credit for this mod goes to me and my installer. Actually, I got to know about this mod from omishra on Team-BHP. I told my installer and discussed if he could do it. At first, he was hesitant because he didn't have the required keys to pull the Headunit out. Later, he advised me to get the Headunit pulled out from Ford to avoid any scratches. I travel 15km to Ford and get it done in 30 seconds flat, it was that easy. I found it very amusing. Then, I drive back to the shop and my installer quickly opens up the Headunit, takes a while to understand the circuitry and solders the Pre-outs. He tells me it's the first time he did such a mod on a Fiesta Headunit so he could well be wrong in his assumption with the pins on the Main-board. But, the best part was that everything was up and running on the very first attempt; nothing was loose, nothing was broken, not even a clip; nothing was lost, not even a screw; no Alternator whine, absolutely nothing negative. I am thankful to LBMji for suggesting me this place. I still remember him telling me to have patience and wait when the installer is ready with labour and the products and everything would fall into place. And yes it did after two days wait. It took an evening and another day till 4:00 to complete this install but, it was well worth it.

@abhipuru

Nice set of ICE. Request you to post the pics with all the components in place. What about the moolah? How much spent?

Thanks ghodlur.
As of now, I can only manage some night shots of the equipment in the boot as the car is not available during the day.
Got to wait till weekend for fine tuning by LBMji and some nice pics.

P.S. Can you help me find some nice songs to enjoy my new ICE in good bitrate?

Whoa, Abhi
I definitely dont have good ear for music. I think you should PM gilead/Sanjay and all thos guys who have got their Fiesta ICEd.

I dont really know what would constitute good songs for testing your ICE coz I am addicted to the golden oldies.
