Aza what sort of fogs are you using? (This isnt the OEM lamps obviously). Costing for the project (minus HIDs) would also help

He has fitted After market Projectors into the fog lamps!! Its was a retro fitting project he undertook, and was successful!!!

The spread of the lamps is amazing!!

aZa remember when i was in my civic and you were behind me, You turned your Fogs on, The Spread and Lighting was BLING!!!

Guys - i already have a K&N CAI (apollo rc5052) on my santro xing erlx. Was wondering if it makes sense to get an FFE?
Also who is recommended in bangy to do the same, how much should it cost and how much time would the install take.
I have emailed FRK, anyone else i need to look at. Planning it for this or next weekend

Souljah : As manan said i got the Projectors from jama masjid area here in delhi, They call it "LENS" there. Its from SONATA (type1) This is the biggest projector available everything else is smaller.

its a relatively easy job to fix, just had to scrap a bit of the fog light plastic. The projector compartment is completly sealed using a aluminium sheet and waterproof industrial tape.

And now after the H7 HIDS the light is killer, the projectors actually form a light pattern like \______/ while the headlights fills up the middle part. there is not much you can do with focusing here. So with that in mind i'm happy with the result.

Cost and fitting was about 1K , going to jama masjid and enjoying Karim's butter chicken was priceless

Guys i am planning to fit a 5inch AutoGauge Tacho in My Santro Zipdrive. Now all i need to know is, will be a straight fit or will it need some manuplation to be done.As i have heard guys talking about dual ignition coil and then it would need switches. AZA, can you help me on this and so can the other Santro users too who have got similar setup done on their cars?

The Next time we meet i will for sure!!!

@nikibusa: To fit a tacho in a santro you need one which is DIS compatible!! The autogauge ones will give you half readings!!!

Get a Sunpro One, All my Santro Friends have that only. You can check out aZa's gallery for the pics and Videos.

Ahhh, seen this many times, he stays near my house only.

I call it the "HORNY SANTRO". Look at those horns. He has a Endcan and street races with everybody on d road. One day he met me on the road and i was in my Civic, he showed me the same attitude and i made sure he does not do that again. Those are 14" rims by the way. He has removed his Rear Bumber else that bumper was a masterpiece in its owns, A sure entry into the Wired and Wacky Thread.

He owns a Shop in Lajpat Nagar called "SHOW-OFF". Also has a UGLY looking silver OPTRA.

Default Santro with alloys

I have upgraded the wheels and tyres on my new Santro Xing GL. The car came with 155/65/13 MRF ZVTS tyres. After reading this thread, I decided the first mod to my Santro should be better rubber. I have got the following:
Yokohama 185/65/13 tyres = 15,000/-
HR Hijoin alloys = 17,000/-
This is the cost of 5 wheels and tyres. I traded in my stock wheels and tyres, so I got 7500/- off on my final cost. Photos below:
