yea.. now my black beauty is all clean, just a "MostWanted" grafitti on the back no plate....but hey come on... i did this car up all by myself when i was 18 yrs old.. people do weird things at that age you know.

About a ram air intake, its also referred as a cold air intake.. it is basically rerouting the air intake outside the engine bay, or towards the front of the car... so the car gulps in cooler air, which is denser, which results in higher power output. mine was of stillen. u can also get one of K&N.. the problem i had was my zen was carburetted. so during cold weathers, it needed intense warming due the cold air being sucked in.

I quite liked the front & overall treatment on the yellow zen above. The front headlight / grille treatment gives it some serious attitude & character.

What do you think is wrong with it?

Seeing the pic i think we all know how the bumper became like that. probably after a few days the other side will also be broken.

my friend,there is a lot of difference between cold air intake and ram air intake.there not even in the vicinity of being the same things.cold air intake is where you have moved the intake to a position which allows the engine to breathe in cold air.Whereas a ram air intake is where the hood design or the intake is designed in such a way that when air strikes it,it is forced into the engine.so comparatively more air is stuffed into the engine .ram air is what you see in the latest r1,zx124,hayabusa etc.

Found at Dandeli. Interesting name for a travel company.




Anybody remember the Sridevi song from Mr. India ? The fruit one, I mean she has a hat decorated with fruits

Also do you guys think that the owner's/painter's intention was to paint 'Yamaha' on the rear of the vehicle ?

cheers

Well, for your viewing pleasure, here are more pictures of the same "BMW". However, these were taken about a fortnight ago i.e. probably just before the dude got the side skirts and flaming vinyl installed.



and pictures of the alloys and decals.

considering that guy's taste in vinyls and badging, not a chance those alloys are original anything. However, those are REALLY awesome alloys and are nowadays pretty popular on the aftermarket scene.

The Skoda below belongs to a fellow-BHPian and the pic is from the Delhi Mega-Meet - same alloys



and this is just a Laura I saw in M-block GK1 about a month back - same alloys
