Stock replacements are good but yu wont find much difference in performance and grunt, You can feel little improvememnt in power and grunt, I'm running on stock and I'm satisfied by its performance. Get a cold air intake if you want some extra power. And the grunt from a CAI is just awesome!

thats an awesome job,man. The baby looks like a terror on wheels. The guy in front is sure to get blinded.

If your handle refers anything to the Beamer 3 series coupe, I would keep clear of your car on streets. But will keep an eye for the beauty though :-)

trust me i drive as if i were sitting in a M3 but i have not done any Mod on the engine but i can still beat a Skoda Laura, i drove past the SeaLink in about 3:40 Mins. doing a constant 135kmph. ofcourse i clowed down at the toll plaza, and i never let the Skoda guy over take me from Nariman Point to Airport.

yeah i kinda thought it would blind the oncoming traffic so I'm just gonna use 2 of my projectors and will use all four on highways. i have 6000k on the big projectors and 4500k on the small one's

will do the finishing and the final headlight will be ready by Wednesday. will post the pics.

cheers

Hey , can you please let me know whats the 0-100 time of your car ?? The Skoda Laura driver must be a BIGG FOOOL !!!
Refer to this page - 17 CARS - ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE TEST

as they say , stock accent does 0-100 in about 15 seconds , whereas , if you find the figures for the Laura here -
Skoda Laura - Crown Of Laurels | Reviews

you will find that the Laura L&K can do 0-100 in just around 10 seconds,

so please tell me how did u manage to keep ahead of that 'DRIVER' ???

I also own a Laura L&K , and i can bet anything that Laura can tear the accent's acceleration figures.

Hey you're taking it to your heart fellow. My accent does 0-100 in about 12.4s and its all about the driving skills it not just having a powerful car. i dragged like hell i propelled the car using clutch. i use half clutch to shift gears and i slip gears like the way one does on bikes. i acquired it from riding a cbr400 for many many years. i'm sure Laura's are powerful my Brother-in-law has one. i will not beat a Laura on a long stretch on a highway cos its KMPH is higher than the Accent. But accent with Michelin are very agile and much lighter compared to Laura.

whats your take

cheers

of course Laura's are faster. i never denied that, its just the goose bumps which gives you a feeling of beating a more powerful car. may be the guy was hell scared to crash his brand new car.lol

i have both Bi-Xenon and single beam projectors, i made 2 sets of headlights.
