Hmm.
I dont think so.I would classify this one as a 1st class stockist.
But implementation?
0 bata sannata!!
Took my fiesta over to get a conical installed,which unfortunately i had gotten by m'self from abroad,so that was one area where i was not going to get fleeced.
I am trying to put in a picture of the wonderful install done by performace zone guys,lets see.
he couldnt even get the pipe angles right to avoid it hitting the latch of the bonnet.
Of course, that may something to do with the AIRBOX not being removed in the first place!!
God, if it wasnt my own car, i'de be laughing out loud.
so now i have the factory fiesta airbox in my car,with gaping inlets and outlets.
also there is another hose(abt 1/2 a cm across) attached to the bottom of the airbox,which is still attached to it!!
As "isse kuchh nahi hot hai"(quoted verbatim).
orginal hose attached to the engine has been twisted to accomodate the filter.
Got it done yesterday, getting it removed today, till i can find someone who actually knows what its about.
will try and post a picture.
cant believe i wasted a grand on such shoddy "activity"(Cant call it work!!).

somebody in delhi, who's gotten a conical installed in a petrol fiesta, or knows someone who has installed, please let me know,im desperate!!!!

mods:sorry if this is the wrong thread,but seemed to be the closest and most current to what i was looking for.

Vinod, normally there is a wire which goes to the dash regulator, maybe the previous owner couldn't get that fixed and decided to go for this regulator at the bottom itself.

Basically it is for controlling the temp of air (hot/cold), if you do not need to regulate that, then you can do away with the regulator.
Generally it is helpful in places with extreme temperatures, Cold for summers, hot for winters.

hope that helps.

mayank, the aesthetics of the install may not be good , but as long as the hose from the air filter to the throttle body isnt leaking, the install is just fine.

You see there are many limitations.Firstly there isnt much space under the hood of your car, secondly in india, the cheapest installer would get the business so to make this install cheap , the installer used the existing parts that were there on the car (read hose coming from the airbox). A better looking install can be done by custom making the tubing for the filter , but since the advantage would be limited to better aesthetics only , therefore its not feasible.
Lastly , the problem of the gaping hole in the air box. Well unlike a lot of cars , the fiesta apparently has a airbox that does double duty as the engine cover (and show piece) You could possibly remove it but that would exopose the stuff underneath making your engine bay look cluttered. Since the airbox on most cars is actually a seperate box, it can be remove, but thats not the case with your car. Best would be to cover the hole and live with it.

Hope this clears your doubts

Addendum: though , paying a grand for this job is indeed fleecing. clearly , its a simple job , which you probably could have done yourself.

I will be driving down there in the next few days to claim it.

I rarely use my M800 (say once or twice a month) & last time when I noticed a rust build up at A pillar, I didnt fiddle with it but yday I happened to scrape it with my car keys & was shocked to see this.
The visible 'rod' inside is the radio antenna.

Pavan,

How much did it cost for Multi link Coil Suspension?

Do we have to change the odo meters when you upgrade the dashboard from 94 to 2002?

Closed Ratio Gearbox - I have cut my gear lever and brought down like yours. But what is closed ratio gear box. and how much would it cost?

Oh man thats some serious rust. Do get it rectified ASAP as damage to the "A" pillar of a car can compromise its structural integrity. I think you can get minor patch work done at any competent garage. Just make sure that putty is used only for smoothness and not for filling the holes.
Now i am really scared after viewing this in a 800. BTW how old is the car.

Man, that's scary. Looking at the pictures, I was shocked & started pondering as to how moisture or water can start corroding the A-pillar? I mean, there has to be some inlet from where water must have reached this place at the insides & corroded the whole metal. Does anybody have any idea on this?

Although I drive an Alto, I recently did an antirust coating on the insides of my car's doors & the engine bay on my own. Although it wasn't messy, but there was considerable rust inside those doors when I opened those plastic trim panels. Also, about 3 months back, I had opened the dashboard & found the entire structure there rusting away to "nothing", removed as much rust as I could (depending on my hand's reach) & spray painted that area.

Guys, if anybody else has taken any measures for rust prevention, do share please. Rusting seems to be a grave problem these days, specially thanks to the heavy rains this monsoon season.

Drive safe, take care.

The Multi link coil spring suspension costed me around 10K all inclusive

You need to change the odo if you change over to the newer kind of Dash

Closed ratio gearbox - You dont get one, but you need to modify the existing gearbox gear ratios by using the older 800 (SS80) top gear and the Baleno 3rd and 4th gear.

DONT ATTEMPT THIS - Ofcourse the car will be a killer, but the amount of money it costs, you can buy a second hand Fiat.

@pavan:by ss80 top gear ,do you mean final drive ie: the differential's ring gear? since top gear is fourth and that we are swapping with that of the balenos

@ariesonu: you may not be this lucky with your fiat but fixing the rust on your maruti in the correct way should be fairly easy. when there is a bad crash, the company usually pulls out the damaged sections of the body and replaces them with new panels. take your car to an authorised service centre and tell them specifically that you want the pillar replaced , atleast the inside section. the pillar is in two pieces , the one you see inside and one you see outside , the inside portion is fairly small and the replacement shoud be easy.
since maruti is doing rather well the replacement part should be available but the service centre most likely will have to order it from maruti.
good luck

+1 to what MCB suggested. blackfire_9 i think the source of inlet (of water) must be the antenna assembly. ariesonu get the antenna module and its gasket checked and if possible get it replaced. Other than that, do get the "A" pillar body panel covering checked, of any leakage, crack, or worse rust.
