You just went through the whole complicated process of swapping an engine, but you're too busy to get it grooved? Weirdo

I love Q Cars. I believe spoilers, skirts and other stuff should be put on a car only if they are technically necessary. I do believe alloy wheels should be fitted on all cars as standard.

@Boom: I can certify that jesal's insane. Met him some time back, after he'd gotten the engine put in. He & somebody else took the Zen down 10th Road at Juhu. They both came back. The dude that was driving was grinning ear to ear... "Man, we just did 140. By the way, there's no brakes on this thing..."

jesal currently definitely has a Q car. Now all he needs, IMHO, are brakes, an uprated suspension, some better rubber & engine oil. There wasn't any the last time I saw him.

Off topic, but is Monty a member yet?

Also, jesal, please let me know when you go in for the cosmetic mods - maybe we can come up with some ideas together... Also, two boosters...???

Q car all the way. mabey a boot lip spoiler and slightly lowering the car.
alloys dont count because they are performance enhancements(you know, less unsprung weight, that sort of thing)

Yeah, a boot lip spoiler seems understated enough. Something like those optionally available on the current Honda Accords. Or the old AMG ducktails, though that seems a bit OTT to me...

ducktails are too much, i mean something like the new bimmer 335i sedan. it looks like a normal 3er but goes just as fast as an E46 m3.

@ speedzak - yes the car had a crash. some fender benders gone. stupid friend crashed it. cars back in shape now. no engine damage though. my so called Q car is not down for sure will be back i love it too much heck i bought a santro in 2004 and sold it in 2005 just to go ahead and keep my 1998 zen. i really love it, means everything to me...

@manveet - this friend of mine is gonna get my *** into trouble since i still have not told anyone at home what happened.

@planetrocker - all are ok with some stupid bruises if my friend drove wisely. its not his first accident. probably his 11 or something.
