Thanks for your quote..I dont want to paint the bumpers for the simple reason that it would get nudged by bikes at traffic stops & in bumper to bumper traffic..infact I would love to paint it white...but as you would agree it better in full black than having black patches...well i would painting a car as soon as my new one comes...may be....

great!, what model of K&N are you using, is it a direct fit, or did you have to do some plumbing?

The reason i am asking is because my car is due on service, and was planning to change the airfilter to stock K&N's.

@govigov: stock replacement K&N filter will fit directly into the stock airbox itself. but if want to go for an K&N universal or CAI then some custom piping(+ plumbing) has to be done.

Hey mridul, Could you explain how did you fit your fog lamps? I have crash guard installed in my 800 and I want to remove it now because of repeated problem with speed breakers, bolders etc.


I want both the method of fitting. Below and above. Did you made any custom clamps/holders for same?

Here is pic of my car

Well Anuj
I ve bored holes into the bumper and while I mounting into the hole I have kept a thick mild steel plate inside as a support for the additional load and bolted it. It goes like this:

Lamp + Plate + Spring Washer + nut ....try it ..it would work

Hi mridul,
Have you changed your wheels? I could see some shinning wheels in the picture.

Mridul! your dashboard is really well maintained. Is it a new one or did you refub it? and your player is exactly sitting its place where as mine had a hell lot of problems because the Player dock in the dash was very much damaged. I have to manage it with a Team-bhp sticker.
