Guys, quoting Amey's response, I want to clarify one thing. Do the ECUs today have a set range within which they can make adjustments to various parameters like the stoichiometric ratio, timing etc? I ask because if it weren't for a set range, people would have simply installed just about anything & gotten away with it, but we still see specific services called ECU remaps.

The seats look awesome on the car. How much are you paying for a pair?
What about the back seat?
Doing anything to get full black seat to go with the sparco.

Do review about the revised driving position.
The free flow exhaust nudging out of the bumper skirt looks cool but isn't it too big for the K10?
Where did you get the 'Sports' sticker monogram (below K10) from?

I will write a proper review when i get the time. for now,the seats are a little more supportive and give considerable back support. also the lower sitting position feels really nice. i'm 5'10. not very tall but it's easy to find a comfortable driving position.

About the muffler sticking out,it was just one of those things that i got done. it will be getting replaced by a smaller end can sometime soon, along with a new rear bumper.

The sports badge i got from my tuner. i could ship a couple to you if you wanted. will check about availability.

feel free to ask me whatever else you would need to know.

BoOM!!

The seat looks awesome on the alto.
Your ride looks pimped.
Little too many stickers for my liking.
Is the seat snug fit? What about usage by people little on the heavier side?
All photos are of the same car or your old car too?

All pictures are not of the same car. the one with all the stickers was the old one. this one just has 2 apart from the live to drive on the rear bumper.

seats are snug and kind of wrap around you. my friend who is about 98 kg's and 6' tall likes them and he can sit in them comfortably. i'm lightweight so i pretty much fit anywhere.

Hi can anyone tell me where I can get a K&N stock air filter for a 2007 Alto in Bombay and its cost? I will not be changing the exhaust to an FFE. How will that affect the performance?

You car looks smart. I appreciate you keeping it scratch free being you daily ride. The roof rails are adopted from a Wagon-R i suppose. Makes it look like a baleno from front at a distance.
And is there any improvement with the K&N air intake? I mean just the K&N (without the FFE)?
