Thanks guys for the info, I will get a 4th opinion @ RNS aswell.

Guys/ Gals: I'm planning to sell my alto in about 6 months or as soon as the Grande Punto is launched. I think by June 2009 for sure. Do you think its viable for me to go for a FFE at this time? or just stick to stock so it becomes easier for me to sell, appreciate your views

If planning to sell in such a short time, do not go for the FFE. You might end up getting a less price that what you would get if it had been stock.

crn12, Suresh has a point as you are planning to sell it off anyways. Its always better to get it restored to stock before selling it else you need to compromise on the price.

Hi Nikhil, that's quite nice

Seems there are some nicely done Altos in "God's Own Country" !

The rims, have they been painted or is it a powder-coat ?

Well, i measured the outlet diameter today. It is a little less that 1 1/4 inch.

Im thinking of getting an aftermarket muffler from the US.

Few doubts:

I see two mufflers in the alto. Does the one, circled in red needs to be removed in order to fit an aftermarket muffler?

Is it ok if the inlet diameter of the after market muffler is bigger than the diameter of OE silencer piping? i mean, can it be fit?
