Good one there skyliner, however the mesh is a tad too thin and I suggest you get a thicker mesh. You've already been there and done that, so its just that you gotto find a thicker mesh and DIY.

Take a stroll on JC Road, am sure you will find something even better.

On a gloomy weekend I had absolutely nothing to do, so thought of making my own mesh grill for my zen.

since there is no rocket science involved in this DIY I'm simply posting the pics.

Let me know if anything more can be done to make it look even better.

Total Cost -
Mesh - 50rs (15" x 4ft)
new scissor - 60rs

Already had Bosny flat black tin.

Nice, I didnt know its that simple to do a mesh grille. But I`m scared about how long it`ll last before ruptures.

Time has come to replace my 2003 Mpfi Zen's spark plug (NGK BKR6E). Thinking about NGK G-Power (BKR6EGP) or Iridium IX (BKR6EIX), does anybody used these spark plugs in stock zen? Any difference in engine performace? I'm just trying to understand whether it is worth to spend extra money in these spark plugs for normal running?

No, it doesn't make any difference if you put high end spark plugs on a stock car and it's not worth spending that kind of money for nothing.
There are various threads regarding this, you can go through them for more details.

yes, I wanted to, but the ones that are available in Maruthi are a lil bigger than I wanted, so I thought of getting suzuki bike logo, lets see I will update on that.

hmmmm, lets wait and see. Anyways got the company grill in perfect condition, if this gets deformed earlier than I thought then I will go for either thicker mesh or stock.

I had actually searched for bigger mesh some time back and I think for the standard size(length * Breadth) that they come in, you have to pay some where around 700 0r 800 rs. That was what they told me.

I was so engrossed in reading the posts that I dint notice that "need for speed" had already replied my post about the PSI. Does any one know the correct PSI for a 155/65 stock rims, I have filled it with nitogen when i was suggested about the same by MSM Chennai, however am feeling bumpy rides at times and really need to know the correct PSI and get the same checked on my ride.

I have recently got a second 2004 zen lx. I find that the headlights are woefully inadequate for night travel even within bangalore.

I have a karizma with 100w headlight connected via a relay and that gives more light than the zen. Hence, my immediate quest is to get a decent power in the headlight. Some options I have identified are as follows.

1. Fix Osram nightbreaker bulbs which are 60/55. (apprx: Rs 1500)
2. Fix 100/90 Philips rallye with ceramic holder and relay. (apprx: Rs 600)
3. Fix fog lamps in the front bumper at the slots provided (apprx: Rs ????)

Any suggestions will be helpful. Any ideas about a place which has a good auto light mech in bangalore.
