@ Ram_hyundai - I've been telling him about the eyes from day 1. Then again, his new headlamp unit got damaged just a few days after install. Had he gone with the eyes, it would have hurt quite a bit!

Thumbs up Update on brakes

Got better brakes for the car - EBC GreenStuff. Set of front pads with noise reduction shims. These are supposed to be one of the best options out there for cars that put out <200 BHP. They are made for "spirited road driving".
Here's the product description: EBC Brakes - Home of the worlds largest range of brake products - Greenstuff Brake Pad Information
The price was over 9k originally, but I got a pretty good discount, which allowed me to buy them. I had initially ordered EBC Ultimax, which were costing me close to 6k. The price difference in the end, between the two, was not that great, and I knew I would always be a little unsatisfied with Ultimax - maybe not from a performance perspective, but a mental one
Truth be told, Ultimax would have been sufficient for Phoenix, but hey, sue me for playin it safe

Will be getting them fitted soon. Review thereafter.

Can you please ask if they have pads for the Ikon, without requiring any tinkering to the caliper.

@1100D: You can contact Krupesh Patel of Electra Performance directly and ask him:
Electra Performance welcomes you

@shuvd: Spoke to Suman today... trying to get them fitted tomorrow, provided he can fit me in the workshop schedule. Regd. the other equipment - couple of weeks more, going by their original estimate.

Hi, This is the first time I am reading his thread... absolutely amazing... am amazed by the amount of knowledge most of the people here have.
Took quite some time to go through all the 30 pages of posts, but very useful in the end. But I failed to find the expense details.
It would be great if razor could put the cost of the overhauling in here. Just the total would also be fine to get an idea... and what cost u got the original lancer?

As a rough estimate, the total was around Rs. 4 lacs, inclusive of the cost of the original car.
I was keeping a religious tab of all expenses up to a point, then stopped, since there were constant niggling fixes and expenditures occurring.
An approx break-up would be:
Mechanicals (including engine overhauling): Rs. 1.2 lacs
Paintjob, body-work , interiors etc: Rs. 1 lac
Spares, miscellaneous costs: Rs. 1 lac

Remainder: cost of car + other uncategorized expenses. Do the math

I too have the 200 glxi lancer.

Pretty neat and smooth car.

I've kept it stock, except for Stanley Leather Interiors and set of nice wheels.

Very reliable car indeed.

And with all the mods you are doing, its gonna get better.
