Are you sure its a 1998?...

Your car must be of 1997, reason being, just before 1998 the new shape was launched with more feminine looks.

Spectacular car, Very well maintained. Specially the alloys.
May I know the price?

@ pavan
Even I think its a 1997 Model, Because I have the 98 model and it looks different. The Side Indicator is over the tyre in the 98 model.

Ride with 165/60 tires is good, no issues, its just that rear suspension is bumpy as it was raised by an inch.

hey wind splitter, that is a neat car you have.. I also agree to the fact that the G3 profile you have chosen is really good and good selection of alloys too.

Alloys costed me around 3K/wheel and this was about 4years ago.

Windy,

That is a nice looking car;and the engine bay looks tooo good !!

My only request is to replace the film with lighter ones - the car'll look much much better.Can suggest Garware Classic/International.

Use Speed if your engine is in good health.

And yes,this seems a pre-98 model to me.

7) Polished and ported exhaust manifold
8) Zen Carburetor
9) Closed ratio gearbox
10) Oversize Polished pistons
12) Oversize valves
13) Free flow Exhaust with a modified end can.
14) 12" K-speed alloys with tubeless Bridgestone potenza GIII
15) Remote lever for fuel tank opener and rear hatch (Keyless)
16) Sanden A/C unit
17) Ported engine body and head for better coolant circulation
18) Sleeved camshaft for better valve lift

These are what i remember presently

Still a strong daily runner.

Mileage:

1) With A/C = 16 Kmpl
2) Without A/C = 17.5 kmpl


Max Speed = 140 + Kmph ( Under free road conditions)

Avg Speed = 70 Kmph

Hi Pavan

Thats an excellent car you have there, wanted to know the cost of the things highlighted in bold and where have you done these changes.
As am also from Bangalore.

Looking forward for your reply
