I don't know about the rest, as I have no experience with Ikons, but you have to get the exhaust job that NC has gotten done!

hi,
ur friend can do alot to the mechanicals.
he can start with a free flow exahaust and then maybe go for a k&n intake.
the plugs can be changed to iridium plugs,the plug wires can be changed .
there are many many things that can be done.but u can go for these safely,as most of us have already done it.

The last 2 pics are my frnds Ikon ........its done by Fahad who is a member on the forum too....if u r frnd like this design he can contact him. He also has a K&N and intake fitted with a loud free flow which he recently softened and his performance has dropped alot after that.

Hey guys i've got an ikon myself but seriously i dont see why i would modify it... i just hate the car's handling and the brakes are out of this world...coz when u brake at high speeds by the time the car stops u'll seriously be out of this world....have got the ikon only a month back and have been trying to sell it for the past two weeks!!!!!!even if i got like 2 lacs to spend on it i would rather ride my bike....

but different people have different choices,preferences and ideas so go ahead guys enjoy your madded ikons....

the stiff suspension doesnt allow the ikon to be a smooth rider agreed but that makes its a brilliant handler !! acceleration is endless (that what i said when i drove the ikon for the first time)...its not a bad car to modd at all..

anyways ..we all differ in our way of defining performance and car package..

Yeah, to each his own.......to me the Ikon is a GREAT handler, you can throw it around way better than most other saloons I've driven...no offense meant, have you recently upgraded from a bike? Perhaps thats why you find it such a bad handler....I mean no saloon can behave like a bike! My opinion only & no offense
