Good job there Sanju. Even I'd suggest you go for a Ikon Spoiler. The ones that we see on Balenos and OHC.

Thanks audiophile. B pillars to be blackened this saturday. Also front windscreen film on the agenda along with new High Security Number plates.

Header and spoiler plans postponed for another 2 months atleast due to budget constraints.

Detailed bill to follow. Actually spend much more than expected. Would like everyone's advice on the cost these guys charged me.

I have just asked Autofusion Bangalore for a quote on the GT Spoiler. Let me see what they come back with.

Sanju, that looks a neat job.
Isn't that a standard front bumper ?

Yes it is. I never liked the old bumper that i had. Also it was proving too tough to get a different kind of bumper. And i always felt the SXI bumper always looked good on an Ikon.

Btw, you wanted to check my car out. I am free this weekend.

I truly agree, and glad to see that you have implemented the very first of my suggestions to you.

Sanju, good effort there with the beautification! Looking good, especially the front bumper.

I think that the windscreen sticker takes it OTT, but that's just my personal opinion And I suggest against putting a GT spoiler. You can get a more conventional one.

Also, the tail pipe looks rusty, get it painted matt black (high temp paint) or use a chrome end tip.

Looks neat. Ford Racing ? Hmmm

Even I am against the GT spoilers. Atleast not those clothes hanger ones. Try for something subtle

For the moment i am not touching that. I am planning a complete FFE in the near future, so the current ones will go as soon as that comes in.

Currently, i have an urgent technical issue to be resolved. I had posted the same in the Technical Stuff Section but got no reply.

As mentioned, in the detailed bill, i have replaced the O2 sensor for a new one. I am having major problems with my idling. After a cold start, the moment i reach the first speedbreaker or i need to slow down, the engine shuts off completely. This happens till the first few kms. Later on, when the engine is warm enough, i do have the same problem although the engine does not shut off completely, rpm goes down to as low as 400rpm and the engine oil light also glows at the same time. Things get worse when i switch on the A/C. I have been advised my most mechanics that this might be because of a faulty O2 sensor and thats the reason why i replaced it. My questions below:

1) Is it really the O2 sensor thats the culprit here?
2) I went back to the mechanic who replaced the O2 sensor and he asked me to run for around 50 kms before the ECU remaps to the new O2 sensor. I have run almost 150kms since the new installation but nothing has changed yet.
3) Was it important to do a basic ECM reset after replacing the O2 sensor? Is it too late now, can i still do it.
4) Other possible causes for this?

For the Free Flow, i presume Raj is the best place to get it done in Bangalore. Have anyone heard of any new places that have come up for FFE?

And yes, the search still goes on for the appropriate spolier. I am not in a hurry though.

sanju sreekumar-the windshield sticker looks too loud,try 2 get a smaller one or better if theres no sticker there.i personally dont like too dark tinted paper,would have looked more classier if the tint was much lighter.otherwise car looks great.

Sanju it's not late to reset the ECU. Remove the negative and leave it overnight.

Get a good tuning and timing of the engine afterward. The RPM fluctuation should then be rectified.
