Hey guys.
Today Iíve put K&N filter in my í84 800. The cost of a filter is 3490/-. They didnít have a size for ISZ 1800 but theyíre going to order on Monday. Apart from Maruti 800, one of my very close friend was there with his 1999 Esteem with header and head job done six month ago. He has put in a filter also. The cost is 5000/-.
Now, the report. 800 is breathing much better. I canít tell the real difference cause my life partner drives it. According to her, the power is seamless. Though I think, it can be even better if we tune the engine. The engine is re-bored and has done 3500km with loads of compression.
Esteem, with all itís gizmos feeling much better. The power band or surge, what we used to get around 3500rpm is coming within 2500rpm. I subscribe a tuning for Esteem also.
On the whole itís an eventful day. Why Iím putting this?
Because by the evening in the midst of torrential rain I was parking my Optra and there was loud thud. An eight inches broken metal pole was sticking out from the concrete like a you-know-what rammed my bumper. Trust me guys, I didnít see that. In fact, nobody will see that unless it hits the car.
So late in the cheerful Saturday evening, Iím back home with a badly dented bumper. Monday Iíll get to know about the damage I need to pay. So much so for a weekend.
Should I say cheers? * *

BTW, there is a guy behind Woodlands hotel who does work on repairing bumpers - don't know how good he is but worth checking out before screwing up your no claims bonus

Hey Rudra,

Well about a year back my car also fell victim to one of those steel phalluses. Thanks to my dear driver.
Well i'd say you are not so bad off in comparison because my cars radiator cracked, amongst other things.
Actually once at my fathers office building compound, which is on a slope, there was a water tanker that rolled backwards into four steel I-beams comming about 4feet out of the ground and it totally bent them over to the ground!! (hope that makes u feel better! lol)
Congrats on your K&Ns !

cya

Ajmat, I dont want to get it done from any where outside Sundaram Motors. For the very simple reason that it won't be a clean job.
Also I'm not planning to claim insurance. It'll hit me hard I know.
I think I have to change the entire bumper cause there's a crack and it's a single unit. I hate to see any patch job on my car.
Are you back in town?

I agree - just giving you an option. Since it is cracked, you got no alternative. Am in Singapore

Hey Rehan.
Thanks ton for the reply.
I don't know if I'll feel better once I get to know the cost of the bumper. I agree with Ajmat. I have no choice but to go for a new one. Those Damn H*** *ns on the road

Hey Rudra!

Sorry to hear about the Optra pal. Nothing ruins a weekend (or week) more than a scratch/dent on my cars.

But focus now on getting it set right. Colour matching, bumper finish and all. Call me if you need any help between options.

Take it easy

Hey buddy.
I'm taking it easy. I may start jumping tomorrow once I get to know the cost from Sundaram Motors.
I spoke to the service engineer today. He was kind enough to tell me that it would cost me 9500/- plus. The plus bit he was not very clear.
But going by his description, it should take at least three days.
Anyway, I'm not thinking about it now. Will hit a Glenlivet bottle. Three drinks. Two for me and one in your name for your moral support.
Thaks bud and cheers

Ajmat, you're so much right. I'm planning to do that tomorrow.
However, Sundaram guy didn't tell me that this is the charge for sure. He said he has to check the part cost from GM parts manual and work out a quote. I don't really find them dishonest going by my past experience. Labour charge may differ from Garuda, I agree.
Thaks a lot.
