Oh boy thats scary expensive. Did that really happen because of the lack of PS oil? What if you remove PS all together, still rack and pinion should not have any effect right? thats what the rally boys do right?

Yeah very rare rims, love the Rp01 and RP02 designs. Actually love them because they are Enkeis.

How much did it cost you to paint the wheels. Will the paint chip of when you put on tyres or change a puncture?

Another thing is the wheels are on the car, unlike yours so i dont know how to go about it.

44K OMG.
During my last visit to MASS I was just comparing the spare costs of SX4 and Baleno which was displayed there. I got the shock of my life. Some Baleno parts are really priced skyhigh and are really scary.

Great, do you have any pics with the Blitz alloys? Did you ever have rubbing issues with 205s on those rims?

Under reccomendation from psycho and v1p3r , got the fuel tank removed and cleaned,fuel filter changed(SGP) and the entire fuel line cleaned with compressed air.(Rs 600 for the filter and 300/- overall labour at U.M. motors)
There is a world of a difference, a Racedynamics ecu should be in in a weeks time.

Umm, I have a few pics taken with friends phone cams.Regret not taking any proper pics:(

With the 205s never faced any issues though i never really did have more than 3 people in the car.
