Did you get the Atom PC off the shelf from a store or you had to assemble it?
How about Internet connectivity?
Why don't you swap the slots of Screen & HU? That would avoid the screen blocking air vents.
Yes the slots will be swapped,This was just for testing

Net is working fine, Via WIFI and Photon+

Looking for GPS receiver.

@ Noida Boy

Would you continue to use the HU for playing music or will the car PC take over the car's acoustics ??

Keeping both at the moment, SQ from CENTRAFUSE is as good as HU.Not really a problem.Having both will cause me no extra expense or trouble.

Another update. Got "EIBACH'D".

Replaced the springs only, On the box it was mentioned a 30mm drop, But on my car it seems more than that.

The changes i found in my ride were Handling,which was quite obvious. Driving confidence has increased by large. Switching 3 lanes at 140-150 was like a piece of cake. Body roll DOES NOT EXIST. Breaking seems to be more effective as the front is not diving any more. Cornering is way more confident.

But on the other hand, Ride has gone down the quality is now directly proportional to the quality of the road. One major problem that has come up is that if the road has bump or slight level changed the car's front tents to LIFT OFF/bounce off. Front wheels go in the air and i loose control. Now that is scaring me. Because the confidence is making me drive faster but undue change in the level of road is getting me into trouble. Need help on this? Any one else with spring facing this kind if problem.?

The problem of suspension bottom out is there as well but i cant complain about that as i knew that was bound to happen.

Need your suggests/advice/solution

post the prices of the Carputer Sanyam. You can PM me but I think posting it here would benefit the entire community.

No idea about the bounce though

I had tried something similar to stiffen the suspension setup.I had tried H&R springs but apparently the combo of stock shocks and lowering/stiffening springs didnt work out quite well.So went back to stock.
My personal opinion is that Its better to go for stiffer shocks and stiffer springs so that they compliment each other well.
I maybe wrong on this though but this is what I personally feel.

Those springs will kill old shocks, specially stock ones. Go with aftermarket shocks since the Swift has good aftermarket support in that area.

Same here. The car was fun to drive but it had a lot of side effects. Specially the lift off and the bounce

No it did not. The spring made it very stiff for minimal movement.

Its looks really nice. how did you do it?

and btw, the suspension problem, adding some spacers will help to increase the GC. I think Mr.Sportsmind also had similar kind of problem. you may please contact him for more details.

Sports mind had the GC problem, Im ok with the GC. The car bounces off at high speeds thats the major problem.

LEDs hardly cost. There is no brand to it. Just simple SMD led cluster.

The whole stuff can be done in 400-500rs
