Shrey
assuming that you know kolkata roads,

Garage: Alok Automobiles (hyundai a.s.s)
Owner: Alok da
Run by: Shazid / Suman
Location: Maruti Bagan, off: EM ByPass
Direction: while going towards Park Circus (4 No. Flyover) via EM ByPass -> after China Town intersection / Steel Junction / Dewar's Garage (Maruti Dealer) / diagonally opp Ganges Ford (towards park circus) / a Marble shop > there is a small broken road on to the left (look for the small garages) > take that small road - you will find it there.

hope this helps

@ Ishan - ? Main kuch samjha nahi!
@ Srijit - Thanks buddy. Hope this is the end of problems.
@ Ssjr0498 - The direction provided by Planet_rocker is spot on. The owners run a Hyundai A.S.S and this workshop.

Finally!!
Last Saturday I got the famed Michelin PP2s in 225/50/16s. Mounted these on the used vRS alloys I had got from Delhi. Though expensive, the PP2s are worth every penny. Handling and braking have improved by quite a big margin.
Next step is getting the Tarox brake pads and Zimmermann front rotors fitted. Will get it done sometime this week.

Some other updates.
FE: Getting around 4.5kpl. 100% pedal to the metal driving.
The slight engine knocking has all but vanished. Facing it only during the day. Any reason for that? At night, the car is totally smooth and goes all the way past 6k without any trouble.

Overall, me is happy!!

Finally those tyres are on your car. so you should be happy now.

i suppose the daytime heat is making your engine more hot headed.

put up a pic of SB once the brakes also go on.

Update: The SB's doing fine.
Got the alloys painted black. Looks wikked.
Also, changed the front discs to Zimmermanns.

@ Planet: Will try to post the pics today.

@ Karthik247 : Nah... I like the sleeper look
