Jimmy :- There's no problem if they can get stock from some other dealer as there is a chance of some unsold stock lying with some dealers.

I'll take some pics of the rear and boot as asked for.

Additional changes made.

1) 3M sunfilm. Now there is a bit of privacy in the car.
2) Headlights changed to Osram Nightbreakers 60/55 W H4 socket. I opted for same rating as stock. There was no need for any cut-out wiring to accomodate the new lights. Lights have now improved by leaps and bounds.

Small issue has cropped up. At idle speed i.e 900 rpm there is a slight rattle heard from the front left side. This vanishes as soon as I start moving the car. This is a very irritating sound specially in city driving as this rpm is reached very frequently.

Has anyone faced something similar? If so, what was the solution for this?

Try this first: from a dead stop, move forward say up to the 3rd gear, slow down with the brakes, clutch completely so that the engine is idling- then move forward.

Then this: from a dead stop, move forward say up to the 3rd gear, slow down but DO NOT APPLY the brakes, clutch completely so that the engine is idling- then move forward.

If you get the sound in the first but not the second, its the brake calipers. I had this in my front right (and now I feel it is there in the front left too). HSC removed my front wheel, removed the calipers, taped on the hinges that holds the calipers and fitted it- and the sound was gone on that side...

It costed me Rs 1500/- for a pair. Its a simple DIY and straight fit to stock holders. Lighting is far far better than stock ones.

Sold it... was high time for a change. It wasn't comfortable for long drives which has become my primary requirement with a car. Anything in the city is for my Karizma to handle.

Not to mention that I'm still game for rides

Phoenix- I tried both the methods and the rattling comes either when the rpm reaches 900 or below. Idle is at 800 rpm or so I think.

I will get the brake calipers checked as well during my first service.
