Finally got the dabba.congrats that VFM buy.
Try to place the dabba near to the firewall and see that it never falls during high speed. Its difficult to remove while sending it to service center. You need to cut those to remove it.

Pls remove the stickers on either side.it looks very odd. it had spoiled the appearance of the vehicle. those scratches will not be that visible. But might form different angles. better to remove and just live with them

I wont remove it while going to service centre . Infact i was showing this box to the service guys today and these guys were impressed with the pickup.
Those are not just tiny scratches. The paint has come off. I am going to paint it on the next service.

Undead - Just saw the pics now, I think you must relocate the box to a better place, preferable ,you can hang it on the black plastic piece you see in the right corner of the picture.

ICE :

Head Unit - Alpine 103E BT ( with BT adapter) - Rs.12000 (w/o B&W)

Removed the JBL and speakers and JBL amp from my Getz and fitted it into my Elantra. JBL + Alpine sounds far better than the Sony i had.

Isn't this HU model a single-DIN? What are you doing with the blank space as the stock HU is 2-DIN?
I am also thinking of a HU replacement for my Elantra in a small budget.

Default 1st Place

Hi Guys,

On Jan 10th Sunday in Erode Bike and car Autocross took place.
In car segment , Petrol and Diesel class are separate. Took my Elantra for a ride for the first time in my life. WON 1st Place . Followed by 3 Getz CRDis with MRF Rally Tires . Mine was with Stock Michelin LC tire.
3 laps total . My time was 2min 44 sec. Second place was 2 min 45 sec. In Petrol segment Esteem took place 1 and 2 . 3rd place to Alto . 4th place to Baleno .5th place to INRC Esteem. Even the petrol cars didnt match my Pete'd Elantra's Time. Posting some pics taken from my cam . Will get the video and full pictures from the photographer soon .

Person on the right side is Me. Other two persons winners of Petrol Class.

Hey congrats Undead. Its awesome to hear that you won. Your car looks neat.

In one of the post i saw that you mentioned that Elantra has H3 and H7. I just got my headlights upgraded to 100W and found that they are H1 and H7 bulbs. Am I missing something here. Can anyone clarify this for me?

As of now no future plans. I am not planning on more mods . Pete'd elantra with Stock Michelin Tires were able to beat the Modded Getz CRDi's , INRC class Esteem . The steering feel wasnt great as its little bigger . TCS helps in DIRT track a lot .
