OK, to start off, you need to save up some cash, for this my humble suggestion would be to skip a few trips to Goa and voila problem solved

Rahul wanted only one of my seats and i refused as i would want to sell both or keep both and am not parting with one of them. More than happy to source one for you incase you need.

Last i heard, the clutch needed to be replaced and yes this car needs a performance clutch for optimum performance.

@ Rahul : Get a complete check done on your car as it has been a long time that its been standing in the basement. you can speak to scan himself for the shocks.
May be Mohnish can help you out with the clutch.
Get the remaining parts required to complete your project and complete it else it'll be a waste of time and money for having invested so much in sourcing the parts that you have with you now.
OR just give a call to Amit as he has said.

Vikram, you will find a missile headed to your place if she reads this . Its not about it being obsolete or not. Its the emotional attachment we both have with this car. Btw, I proposed to her in this very car. We have had some wonderful drives, lots of memories in this very car. And she is very particular about me not getting rid of this car. EVER. I tend to agree with her.

Yes, new modes of transport will always come and go. I will buy a new car in the future too. But this one will stay for as long as I can keep it. Maybe 10-15yrs down the line we may see this in the vintage car section .

Touche Jay! Tell me about it.

PS: Guys, I hope you all do realize the emotions the lady has behind this thread. I request you all to respect that fact. The least you can do is to help her, not hurt her.

Mr & Mrs Rahul (actually bhabhi is the right word).

I thought that the car was being turbocharged long time back this is when I had my turbo baleno.
Dude why haven’t you taken any initiatives to get in running condition.
I am sorry we could not do the swap (you know what I mean) because I sold it in an urgency thinking it my break apart anytime after removing the turbo.
And I don’t think the engine was in a good condition any more, any ways I got my new/old baleno again(for the love of owning a baleno).
If you need any help please feel free to contact me any time and what about the turbo seriously are you interested in doing it. And I am hoping with your experience you can help me getting my car turbocharged, this time I need a reliable build not like before.
What say buddy.

I think your car just need a complete service done, just leave to fast cars or Sagar or any other best place and tell them you need car back in OE shape.. they all do it for you.

@Mclaren1885: is your car stock or its made to look stock?

@vinay this is a little off topic but sagar i'm getting my doubts over. my car was originally being serviced by them. now i refuse to give it there. they botched up 3 services and blew my power steering controller and refused to accept responsibility. they still had the gall to blame me for it!

Since its a public forum, your practice shouldn't become a problem to either of them, so i thought its better to wait till they get married. Well i have no problem, just giving you my opinion

I guess he's busy with the censored part of his life, so i thought i'll let you know that the car is not stock.
