Default Car Audio : Tecnokrat (Chennai)

I ICE'ed my swift here ,so i think i can write a feedback on them

Plus Points
  • Very Professional
  • Neat work
  • Warranty - They dont make fuss to change any faulty items (if any).My swifts headlights went off suddenly on a rainy day which was upgraded from 55/70 to 90/100 with cut out from them few months before that and they replace the bulb without any question
  • Lot of car can be parked
  • Worker behave properly
Minus Points
  • Products sold are all high-end and expensive
  • Location of the workshop -very difficult after Ampa mall was opened
  • Always full with vehicles -better to take an appointment

Most of the time you will only see BENZ, BMW, Porche, Skoda so our cars will look tiny among them

Yes,Bala is very friendly,the location is the only problem,i did my indica too there when they were in mahalingapuram and i feel that place was better.

Even now they can look at shifting to a better location.

I ICEd my esteem there. I can vouch for the level of workmanship. Excellent. As pointed out by joshguy, mostly imports/exotics only will be seen there, but the attitude of the workers/bala is excellent. They treat you as a beemer owner.

I ICEd my SX4 in technocrat. Wonderful experience, they know what they are doing, neat job, recomended by Vikram, fitment is just perfect, they don't make you cry by cutting hapazardly unnecesary things/wires/tapping later kind of job. Bala knows stuff. I had a small problem reg my Eclipse head unit eject, Bala was kind enough to let me in on a Sunday and I was surprised to see a new unit waiting although I didn't need it. The guy told me Bala sir gave this new unit to be fixed in case of any small dissatisfaction on my side. I can anytime recommend them for high end systems.

Can some one suggest places around Gundy/Velacherry for good ICE fittings?
I am looking for an ICE for SWIFT. Good basic door speakers PLUS a basic HU with USB and AUX.

There not much places to ICE in and around guindy and that too good ones

If you are particular about velacherry,check the Haute car zone in OMR ,but remember it will be slightly expensive.It is a vast showroom and you can pick and choose your self like a supermarket and they would fit it.

If you are looking at VFM system for around 8-10k then i can suggest you a place in alwarpet.

Just PM me and i will give you the address

Does Tecnokrat install audio stuff that we source ourselves - if so, how much is charged for just the install? I have sourced all that I need, I am toying with DIY or going with a good installer...

At Tecnokrat, The install will only look good.
I think you should DIY. And I'd like to join too.

Sir, I believe he IS one of the BEST in Chennai and understand that a lot of people go to him because his work is EXCELLENT.

IFF, his work only looks good then, he cannot retain such customers.

Have a good year!

Cheers

Time. That's something I don't seem to get. The install - whichever way it goes - is at least a month away, lets see...

You want to do a DIY, it is totally upto you, but if you want a professional install, Technokrat is the place to go. I understand nitrous had some ego issues with Bala, i think that is beside the point here. I went there with all my equipment and a guy named fazil did a quiet and fantastic install. Would not even dream of going anywhere else after this. Even though there were bimmers and mercs and porsches, my rickety old lady was treated on par and a fantastic job done without a whimper which is what i truly appreciate.

I'm sorry you're incorrect. I don't have ego issues with Teknocrat.
Infact, I'm cool with the gentleman.
But, when it comes to work, I'll say I've seen a few installs of theirs and I don't like them.

PS: For God's sakes, please don't expect me to concur to your opinions.
You have yours. I have mine.
Lets move on.
