Are they not allowed at all in delhi?
Hey Vid

I did have 70% visibility LUMAR tints in grey, but got them removed when the Delhi & Gurgaon Cops were pulling up any car with anything on the window - literally. The car anyway gets attention because of the colour. Tints are BANNED in Delhi & NCR

Thanks Hellwpawn. Glad you like the car. the pics don't really do justice to the car..but then those are the best I can manage As for the bodykit - kudos to Autopsyche (Arush) for the job.

Cheers

Looking great Ricky! But I'll bet you are missing those angel-eyes, eh? :(
How about smoking the OE headlamps a bit? I think they'll look pretty good.

@ Razor
You bet I miss the Angel Eyes - those lights really add a lot to the car, but then in my case visibility at night was a huge issue. So Safety First.

Nice thought about the smoked headlights - but that would defeat the purpose of going back to OE would it not ? As I need very good visibility at night...maybe I'll try it - & remove it if it does not work

@ aniguchisan
You are most welcome to Sire !!

Well you have put in some seriously powerful lamps, so some light tints should not reduce visibility much. You could try putting some window tints (of a similar opacity as the smoked glass) over the headlamps to experiment. If you like it, smoke the glass similarly.

ask someone to take a video of the exhaust note using a mobile / digicam. it will be better if you can sit at the wheel revving the beast madly. upload the video @ YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

Then, ask someone to stand at a certain point drive upto him on full chat and just as yu are about to pass him, let the car engine brake on the same gear.

Works wonders on some cars with even stock exhaust.

You will find all the relevant details on the modifications carried out - in my Picture Gallery.

All the enhancements possible are there on my car - other than a turbo setup. Infact IF you want you can buy my car as is & save yourself the bother of doing up a stock car. It does fit your budget. IF interested PM me for details. Your Call

Cheers
