Hello Sam,

An E36 M3, wow...how about a first hand ownership experience? Where is the car now, have you already sold it or is it within the family? Any pictures?

Starting with a stock Ikon, I would go with the obvious. First nice rubber and alloys..next a cold/regular air intake and top it up with some high-end headers with a free flowing exhaust. If this aint enough for you, I am sure all of us can chip in with our suggestions and help you kit your ikon up.

I believe our member - S600SEL - can also help you out with the stuff, since he is a direct importer of performance parts for Indian cars.

Good having ya over,

GTO

Actually i sold it coz my parents were not really fond of the coffin on wheels. It was simply the best drive ever, 0-100 in 6 seconds. i can get some pics from my bro at home and ill display them. It was a stock model, tho i was thinking of some mods, but when you have 210 kW and no one can beat you... I can relate some good stories.
Well i was at bandra sealink today and well that supra was something else. Not really a fan of the SL55 coz its not a manual.

The Supra, no doubt, was a great car cos it was a completely modified one. Though I cant understand how the guys got only one TC in it. It has a claimed 750 bhp. Now isnt that great cos a stock Supra [twin turbo] produces 320 bhp.
But whats even greater that a stock SL55 AMG [if I can call an AMG stock ] with 492 bhp cud beat him by 2 car lengths place at the end of the 1/4 mile strip.
