Spacers for Rear shockers - Rs 350 ( including fitting)
i don't have much idea about the above stuff but after installing spacers to the rear shocks how is the handling, (gurus can confirm this)

I also want to know why people hide their number plate.
as far as you are posting pics of your ride, its not necessary to hide the number.
my question and answer in bold.

@ harish nayak,

Those appolo alloys look awesome. and the rohtang pass seems to be drive through heaven.
The most interesting thing i found on your ride is the FFE endcan. what FFE is it and how did you manage to plonk in the complete bigger end can in such a small place?
we would like to see more pics of the FFE and alloys.

looks like some kind of jugaad has been used/done to fix that end can.

Ya its a beautiful place , nature at its best. I got the FFE from a friend i met on Orkut in Delhi , he's in to modding cars. This FFe i got installed from Connaught Place in Delhi for 4k , i'm not sure which brand it is but the performance and sound is raving ( my wife doesnt like it though)

There was no Jugaad done in this , i'm very particular about things fitted in my car. Actually the FFE was inclined a bit to adjust it there and it did not need too much of tweaking.

Also to let you know that my car was rear ended in december 2008 after which i changed the alloys and brought it back to 12 inchers with different set of alloys and black bumpers and to add to it my car turned turtle 3 times in March 2009 and is currently in the service station.

How you managed to do all this to you alto, but after all this it looks quiet good back in shape, i don't have much idea about ffe and end can if it was a bolt on end can that its fine if not then you know.

I got this done from a friend i met on Orkut whos into car mods. I'm not sure if its branded or not as i had got it done about 2 years back and did'nt really bother to check. The performance and reliability is good though , he also gave me a guarantee that nothing would happen to the FFE for over a lakh Km and i think he was right , my car crashed after it did 65k kms.

i saw your accident pics. very sad to see it happened so many times with you. but i feel you were damn lucky with the 3 times rollover. dont know how the structure remained intact.
how was the performance after installing the FFE, was it tuned to lower rpms or mid and high range? i guess it was a loud sounding FFE.
seems you have done long trips on your alto

I know even i was surprised to see the condition of the car however the expense are close to 1.5 lakhs. The performance of the car in terms of speed power and mileage increased , I think its was on high range ( not sure though).
It was a loud sounding FFE ( loud enough to pump the adrenaline ) . I've done multiple number of reaaaalll long trips on my alto. Longest was 1350 kms trip of Rajasthan in 2.5 days.

I may get my car back tomorrow or Day after , i'm not sure if this would be the right place to post the pictures of the series of events that the car went thru right from the accident to reconstruction and then the modification AGAIN ( Phew).

Please suggest

Can you please share a pic of how it fits in the bumper? Any brand mentioned on these fog lamps? Though complimentary, do you remember the MRP?

Hi Chetan , You don't get the fog lamps in the MOSS i've checked atleast 5 of them but to no use. I got them fitted from a local accessory shop for rs 500 around 2 years back and the lights only worked for about 2-3 weeks before conking off , however if you catch hold of a good electrician and a mechanic then they can fix the bulbs issue and the fitting issue nicely.

You'll have to look for them if you really love your car , i'm going to do that once my car is back from the Service station.
