Even the Audison Bit One has TA and a whole bunch of other parameters that the user can play around with. It's the best processor currently out there IMO. And not that expensive either.

I have not used the Bit One but so far the most-VFM TA solution I have seen is Alpine with Imprint.

Phase A of the pics;

I shall try and write about it in a bit;

@Navin - yes Illusion is not available - company has stopped production - it seems. Nice product, good price.

I would love to use Audison or Mosconi Amplifiers.
The issue is are they available in India ?
Genesis too is a product I want to try - but that too has folded.

However, these 3 amps came out of my 'swift' so I will 're-use' them.

I was at 4S yesterday getting the Alpine PXE-H650 installed in my Accord. I saw your car, lol it was totally stripped. Some serious stuff going in there.

Audison amps are easily available through their authorized distributor "Kumar's" in Bangalore with bill and 2 years warranty.

Genesis is back and available with gunbir and JB of BBW distributors.

@ cuteavaya
@ Pr_007

Thanks.

Currently I do not need any amps.
I already have 3 Steg's

However @ a later date, if I need, I shall get in touch with him.

BTW is he on this forum ?
I have not been here for a while, so do not know what the current status is.

@ prince85

Thanks.

I will look up Kimar's
I do not know who they are !
What else do they sell ?
Do they have a dealer in Mumbai ?

OK

I heard your Accord.
Sounded nice.
The seats too were good.

You are correct the car is full 'stripped'
The VW needs that treatment, else the car can never sound good - ICE i.e.

What you saw was phase 1 - the easy & fast part.

Now the time consuming part will start - today - enclosures.
2 for the subs & 3 for the amps & and another one for the 4 X-Over boxes.
This will take up a lot of time.
I do hope that 'Sounds Good' along with 4S Auto make an effort & the work happens 'fast' I have 4 guys dedicated to this job.

Congrats Bagwan! Guess it's a expensive proposition but understand how passionate you are....Post the final cost & picture pls!

By doing these much of alterations - would your car's warranty not be void? How do you plan to tackle that?

Sir,

Cost, is the last think on my mind.

What does the work 'W' stand for ?
Yesterday I sent my Superb for a service to Autobahn & they voided my 'W' cause, I wanted to get Mobile 1 installed in my car....
It is very unfortunate.

To get back to this thread;

I have changed the Rims - 17" Alloys - Sparco Pista by OZ Racing
I have also changed the Tyres to Continental Extreme Contact DW - 205.40.17
I have changed the Air Filter to a K & N with custom air intake.
I have changed the Exhaust to a Cat Back - 100 % Stainless Steel 'free flow'
The ICE will happen. No Spare Wheel or spanner can ever be reached........

Basically, I have never got an 'W' from any dealer for any of my cars. So why will VW be any different.

I still need to order the Suspension - KW from Germany & the only this O/S is rear disc brakes. This is very much needed. This car just does not stop.

The ECM Re-Map too is O/S/
No one can do it. The ECM is MM & Made in India, so there is no code for it. Will have to wait & see what can be done on that front....

P.S.S. If the VW Polo Cup car was for sale, so much of the effort & heart burn would have been saved.
Buy it, change the tyres from slicks to my CC Extreme DW & I would have been 'home' !! As happy as can be !!

Yes, I will.

This will take 2 weeks.
Once I get 'billed' by 'Sounds Good' I will put the particulars here.
The Materials were partially mine & some were supplied by 4 S Auto.
So, once I know & I pay, I will tell you guys. However, 'ball park' [non commital] the cost should be around 2.5 to 3.0 lacs. I assume. This will include - HU + 3 Amps + 2 Subs + 2 Sets of Components + Cables + Installation + Fibre Glass work & painting etc.

LOL that reminds me of the time GTO's Civic was stripped and being prepared for ICEing.

When GTO first saw it (in the stripped condition) he nearly fainted. His next question was "Will they be able to put it all back together?"

I sure hope so !!


No No - on a serious note - I have done this too often & the boys know what they are doing, so it should get back - it is only a question of time.
The main thing is, will the 'new material' work for me ? FRP i.e. !
