300 only??? is it a safe job?

btw, about wider tyres, i wonder if width 185 tyres are fine. stock is 175/65-R14. if it 185 width, what should the profile measure? i dont want to go for 15 inchers

185/60 R14 is the correct upsize for you.

I think greenhorn is pulling a fast one (isnt it buddy?). But I seriously think TML should offer the ABS option to existing owners, if possible. I am not too clear on the integration of the electronics and the other hydraulic stuff though.

Some how I find that ABS sticker on the Hyundais a really ugly one. It looks like an after thought.

The one on the Marutis and Fords (Fiestas) seems better.

My Fusion doesn't have a sticker, even tho' it has ABS.

if only it were that easy -I'd have gotten my indica retrofitted with ABS and airbags long ago.

Hello CtrlAltDel,
Could i know the maximum speed touched by your car so far? How did the car handle at those speeds, especially while turning?

i have taken it upto 100 kmph at one time. ride was good but i was nervous!

frankly, the stock brakes are not suitable for such high speeds.
