As said earlier, the KONIs are expensive! And the reviews are always mixed. Some find it very good and some more has found the thing to be waste of money.

So, after going through this forum again, I've decided to drop KONIs from my shopping list. V1P3R,VEYRON1 and steeroid (whom I met in Cochin) were helpful in making this decision too.

Now, I'm thinking of a brake kit upgrade!
Yup, the stock brakes just dont bite enough and it can raise a few hairs once in a while. So this upgrade is very much inevitable. Need more info about this.
Experts! Please!

in one of the mags,it said that a stock octavia vrs performed better than a koni(fsd) equipped octavia vrs through a slalom course.now thats something i dont wanna hear after spending 45k.it would maybe make more sense to upgrade ur suspension to koni's when your car is old and it is required that u change ur suspension.this way ul end up payin less.

Is the Koni suspension available for Omni/M800 ?

And is there any website for Koni India ? I've searched for it, but in vain..

Went for a drive yesterday for about 400kms. The mods seems to be working good. The K&N extreme and Automech freeflow are doing their job pretty well! Could touch 140+ KMH with this 800 cutie! And not downhill. I loved it.

But a brake upgrade seems inevitable now! Very very scary! (Ask JKdas for more info) So, guyz! Please shed some info on any upgrades that side!

Do you have figures for your top speed/FE before and after fitiing the K&N and freeflow? And did you upgrade your tyres/wheels?
