Absolutely right...it is the Vxi with ABS

Thanks ..well I would not venture into that territory as even with bright lamps people lack discipline and tail gate...so I would rather have LED's installed than smoked...probably if i can get smoked LED's it would look great

Cheers

Yes the FFE has been Shankar's job..the K & N i got them installed by Shankar too....

I ve known Shankar for the past 8yrs since I started tuning my own cars and all the buddies have got exhausts made by him...

Was the FFE, by any chance, done by Muffler-Shankar ?

And may I ask where & by whom you got the cold-air-intake & K&N filter installed ?

Isn't he Silencer Shankar ? If it is him, he should not have charged such a huge amount, he works pretty cheap, but he is good.

Silencer Shankar or Muffler Shanker I guess are all same.. Oh ...but I feel he's not expensive as I ve checked other sources around Chennai who charge 12K only for a back end muffler plus additional for headers & fitting charges...The total FFE with headers set me off by 12K and 2K for the airintake piping for the K & N...

Guess one should pay for quality work...Have you installed a FFE from Shankar if yes then how much did it cost you for your Esteem ? as it say's so

The guy just works on exhaust and its a garage where you can park just a single car for fitment or work on exhausts...I guess Electra performance can work on your car...
