Cool

Hey Mrhap, congrats for the choice of car and the colour. as told by the other guys, no reving hard till the first service or till the second. till that time take her to a paint shop and get twin white racing stripes starting at the bonnet and till the boot. next, (that is after at least 2000 kms as u will need that time to get used to the car and its nuances on handling etc) get a K&N stock replacement filter remember a stock replacement filter(SRF) and not the conical one. the SRF wont create problems with the warranty.
Tha en the skys the limit. after a year or so go in for a free flow exhaust 4x2 with twin exhauste at either end and not the same end.....the iridium spark plugs. if ure still hungry for power ( i was) get your chip remapped...........VROOOOM uve got a 185-200 BHP baby, ythen back to square one as ull need time to get used to that power, believe me dont step on the gas till uve got used to the monster.

Hey V 16 a couple of questions...
1. whats the role of the filter and exhaust?where to get them?will dealers have them?
2. What would be the approx cost of the changes you mentioned?

Thanks

aww man. congrats.

Dont give a run for those 150 horses for thw first 1000 kms if you gonna keep the car for 4-5 years nad atleast 2500kms if you wanna keep it for some more time. keep it single handed and go to a single gas station only until you get the first servicve done.
