Sahil,

You got that right, i was asking about the traction. No inside jokes...exactly what it said (cept i think Navin's driver put on most of the miles on his RS! Hence that comment )
Im pretty suprised to hear your RS + rain experience! I wonder if it has somehting to do with the stock rubber that i was not very impressed with during my short stint in an insane primate's RS.

So Mr Mehta who gets the crown ? I better be out cause i dont think that my car is that great mod,
unless i get some engine work done its pretty stock for me, its only the first phase of engine swap the best is yet to come.

IMO Rudra's AMBY deserves the trophy. What say guys ?

i think its too early to get any result.....
there are so many guys out there on the team bhp members list and only a few(read 30 odd) ppl have voted........
i think we should wait till more ppl vote!!!!
as for rocam dont be so modest dude....u stand a big chance of winning!!!
so stay glued and watch this space for more details!!!!!!!

If you pick some of the top contenders, I can add a poll to this thread with those names. Say 10 names.

Poll has been added. Only own vehicle mods considered. I have kept out professionals from this. Sorry autopsyche, Pete, I am sure you guys won't mind letting the amature members get some glory for once.

Hey guys!!! Is it really a must to keep my old babe in this poll? She's doing her duty because she just can't refuse to give me back my time for her (though, according to me it's he not she). I feel she's old enough to be out of this Miss universe run.

I voted for Edmunds 800! His car oozes of attitude without making it too apparent. Cheers!

Nope I was refering to Mad Monkeys RS that has a leaky sun roof. The saga of MM's sun roof is best told by MM himself. His version is so much funnier!

Rudra, your car is beautiful. Not because of the leather interiors or the 1800 ISZ engine and tranny but because of the little details like the petrol lid opener, like the rear wiper, and the ammount of love you have poured into it.

Well mods according to me can be classified as follows:

1) Body
2) Engine
3) ICE

But at the end of the day the best judge is the package you own. Well we have tried extremely hard with the esteem this time but seriously he still stands noweher close to the level of detail that you have maintained on your car.

Mods do not necessarily mean the loudest, fastest or the best looking but a the best combo of em all and you take the cake there, like they say a retro classic outsells the latest supersport
