Car is good. It feels quiet sorted out in all respects.
Performance is also very good as we all know, I am taking it easy as of now. Low end torque is little less until turbo kicks in, but its a blast after that.

The PP2 tires are also superb. Surprisingly, they feel as comfy (if not better) as the stock tires with 205/50-15 size. I will test them properly after the initial running-in is
complete.

Good. Best of luck. Don't forget to follow the TBhp PDI checklist.

Not very heavy. I did feel some heaviness immediately after the tire change but now I don't feel anything. IMO stearing should be a little on heavier side for better control at high speeds.

@vabs78...
Excellent color and wheels! Congrats!

I have some questions regarding the alloys and tires, if you dont mind...
32k including buy-back of the stock tires?
Is that a set of 4 or set of 5?
How much you paid for the PP2 alone?

Ride safe and have fun!

How many kms has your beast done now?

I already gave a small 1300km First Service update. Till now it has clocked 2400 kms only.
The only problem i am having now is the squeaky sounds from the rear seat . I think the reason is that i am driving in bad roads everyday. Four-lane construction is going on in my area and the roads are really bad. Or does the sound comes as i regularly fold the rear seats ?

Hope the custom made parcel tray is not the culprit.!!

I was having a second thought on that..I will test it by removing the parcel tray. Actually i made it with a tight fit so that it doesnt move , but the guys who polished it scrapped a few mm's , to make the board smooth .
