Thinking about silver finished tints. Or black tints.

Thanks for the compliments.

Will try for tints but the grill will take time as it all comes out of my Pocket money.

Dude dont even think abt putting silver tints on a red car imo... its going to look cheap!Black will look good on red.
Also the invex grill is really sleek..try gettin that...or else a cheap way out will be to just have a mesh grill silver put ... probably fahad or some1 can help u out.

Hey Lambo,

Your car looks superb. Try to get the old grille will make it surely look better.

Thanks guys.
Something really wierd happened.
This morning we dropped the car off at Fortpoint to get the repairs done and got it back at 4pm, 5 days earlier then promised.
Reason, the place where the car was to sent was closed as the roof fell down smashing 12 cars.
Luckily, there were no casualties.
Anyway, will ask my dad about the tints (my driver cannot see very well so will have to as k him too) but will def do the grill.

Well,
i am still waiting for them to get the leather and SFXi kie.
Also a drunkard came and broke the light when i was getting my tyres changed for the second time to eagle Venturas. That happened in the middle of the road.
The ride has improved with the eagle Venturas and i am very happy but the comfort is not as good as my jijajis car which has the same tyres.
Also the arm rest does not go in properly and the rear left door squeaks
Other then this, only the FE is irriating but that will become better.
The engine is very refined but needs a few mods after some time, car looks hot, there is lot of space, i am happy with Fortpoint Mitsubishi, quality of interiors is good.
Hopefully no other problems will crop up and i can use this car faithfully for the next 7 years.

Hey guys,
here's another problem.
As i mentioned earlier, the ride is a bit bouncy and was improved by the ventura tyres.
However, i recently sat in my jijaji's car and he was doing a considerable speed (80kmph) and here is what i noticd -
- Our lancer is much much more bouncy than his at 1/4th the speed. He has the same tyres
- His car has less noise seeping in
- His car feels more stable.

Any advise on what i can do? I wanted to modify the car but i doubt it will happen. But one thing is for sure. This car actually feels more special than any Baleno's or OHCs that i have sat in. I don't know why but it does.
Thanks and Cheers guys.

Bouncy as in the car jumps. It jumps so much that the rear pasengers are tossed about and hit their heads and this on roads such as the main Mahim road which joins Shivaji Park to Bandra. (the one with croissants).
i felt the difference on the same road too, with 2 passengers.
Infact, his lancer felt more stable doing 120kmph on a 2 lane highway than ours does doing 80kmph on a 4 lane highway .
Cheers

Get your shocks checked up. Since bouncing means that the shocks aren't functional.
If it bounces it's the springs recoiling and not damping the springs action.
