So in the dead of the night out of nowhere I see a tractor alongwith a trolley attached with not a single light on the damn thing turning towards me from the opposite side. I was doing about 80-90 km/h and I saw the tractor at the last moment when it came in the range of my headlights, so to avoid it I had to swerve and as a result went down the side slope of the road and the car got banged into an old tree lying on its side and a fresh tree from the front. The result once I had managed to get the car pulled out of the steep slope with the help of a tractor was what you see. Fortunately the damage was only cosmetic and I wasn't hurt. I continued onto Delhi and sent my car in for repairs the following week. I still shudder to think what would have happened if I hadn't been able to swerve to avoid the tractor but anyways let bygones be bygones.

I try and maintain my cars to the best standards and anyone who has driven my VTEC is shocked by how fast she is for a car that's done 92,000 kms.
Mate that's good u escaped unhurt.....

no color in the RC book!?

you might want to check the exhaust end can and get the hot gases to flow away from the bumper... otherwise your newly painted bumper will start to fade because of the heat from the Exhaust gases.



Can you throw some light on the make/specs and the price you paid for the chip ? Many of us are dying to fit that on our OHCs...
20k on touchup That's a lot of money. If you want an original colour paintjob of the best quality it will cost you around 36K here in Delhi so compared to that the amount charged for just touchups & polishing is shocking to say the least. And considering the quality of the work it is great VFM.

I have already checked the exhause there is a good 4" inches of clearance from the bumper so no danger of exhaust gases damaging it. Thanks for the concern anyway.

Will post full specs and cost etc. of the chip tomorrow.

@ buzzin hornets, the wolf - thanks and will post the details about the chip tomorrow.

@ bruce - Thanks for your wishes I escaped completely unhurt. As for the colour thing well it isn't mentioned in the RC so as far as I know the cops/RTO guys can't bother me. If they say anything then my standard reply would be that putting the colour in the RC is the RTO office's job not mine so I can't be blamed for it.

Thanks Beemer! If you are serious about a good quality job go to P & Co. they are the best. And while you are there tell them that you liked the job done on Ishan's VTEC they'll be very happy to hear that! Might give you a discount too if you put it nicely enough

@JK

The car looks awesome in flesh. To me it seemed better than oe paint jobs.
and u have to hear the exhaust... its to die for. Pure Music

Regards the chip.. raghav said its like a piggyback module.. which boosts low end power. Dont kno how it works.. but tried the car myself and there is actually a power boost in the lower range(a common problem on vtecs)

Dunno about the cost though.

Yes Pandit & Co. can repair it and make it perfect, the cost only they will be able to quote to you after looking at the damage to the car.

Replacing the roof is an option but why do you want to do that if it can be repaired as is. Since replacing will cost you a bomb and is not advisable as it involves major cutting and screwing up the monocoque structure of the car.
