Firstly a think 195 is too much for the zen.

secondly you say you only have a mild tune up with a 10-15 bhp increase.may i ask what work is done on your zen ?

Sure! Now for the time am having a Free-Flow Exhaust system(Headers to Muffler) from Leela, Coimbatore, K&N Conical Filter,NGK IridiumIX Plugs, very slightly polished and ported head!
My rubber is almost finished i could do hardly 5k kms more. As soon as i get a new set i`ll be goin for an esteem bottom half also! So i need a set which can run that spec.

There is one push button switch for sale in the classifieds, if it is not already sold.

Guess one has to insert the key and turn on the ignition. Then turn on the switch and use the press button. I maybe wrong!!

There wont be any response! The ignition may be disconnected from the key mechanism and will be connected to the toggle switch on the press button!
If we get a high volt compatible switches(toggle and push buttons) we can convert it to a press button mode with the help of a well know car electrician.It will be very nice if the push button have bot starting and stopping feature.
Like that of BMW!!
But that switches must be of very good quality!

Push button starts are suddenly HOT- everybody wants them. Our family sedan owned 30 years ago (a 1948 Buick RoadMaster) had one; now it's back in vogue.

That car also had a glare-deflecting RVM that could be clicked in or out. Guess what- my new Fabia has the same functionality.

If possible get the Zen diesel one's at the front, they are quite good.

Few questions.

Push buttons are real neat. I forgot which one, but one of the AMG Merc's have a push button start on the gear shift.

By the way, how much does it cost to get one installed and is it safe

Thanks for the reply bro,

Wouldn't zen diesel suspension be too hard for the petrol zen?. I remember it reading some where in team-bhp.

Also, do I have any other options?
