H27 are you sure?? Because I wanted to upgrade the fog lamps too and the guy said they were H7s or H8s. Also said that i can book the Philips CrystalVisions H8 for them since i have the CrystalVision in the main headlamps (H4)

i got the foglamps from the market and in that its h27 maybe in the company the foglamps are h7 or h8 will check and let u know.
in the main headlights i have bosch xenons 8000k fitted as of now.
first i had fitted vision x xenons 6000k. i like the 6000k better

drove back from bangalore yesterday evening after getting the headers and exhaust done from raj.
i am getting abt 10 - 12 bhp more power now
can really feel the difference, its much more powerful and very quick now.
it was already getting dark when i reached the highway but i managed to
hit a top speed of 190kmph i think it can do more.
the next time i go on the highway will try it out.

have not got the k&n as yet.
i should get the k&n fitted the next time i go on the highway.
i think with the k&n should get abt 3-5 bhp more.

will try to take photos of the full headers till the exhaust and upload it as soon as possible.

I upgraded the stock headlamps with Philips Crystal vision. Wanted to change the fog with white light. Which one should I go for and what is the cost of that ?

crazy looking ride dude,

congrats on the car and the wheels..

have you noticed whether the increased size has affected the speedo readings yet? and if so - by how much? i would assume that the reading you get would actually be slower than what you are actually driving...
