Thanks

With "Go Green" the buzz among corporates, media and everyone else including Petes, I jumped onto the bandwagon and got myself the Wind.

The installation was done at Electra today.

PS: I'm still surprised that the guys at Evo managed to install it without the hose clips (The gold color ones around the blue plastic)

Paid 7500 for the filter at Evo. This included the dynamization kit. Installation at Electra for 175 and the hose clips for 80 bucks.

The car is now revving freely, but its still too early to comment on the changes

The car has undergone a couple of changes over the past couple of weeks.

1: I've removed the angel eyes/HID setup. The initial charm was over, and during rains, I found them slicha uncomfortable to drive with. Plus there is always a constant fear of HID failures. Planning to upgrade to 100/90 with Relay setup.

2: 7 months and my driving style has changed too. With the Green, the car revvs more freely and so spirited driving has crept it. So the A-Drives weren't really solving the purpose. So moved on to Michelin PP2s 205/55/R15. The tyres are hugging the road and the steering has become a bit heavy (not so much when compared to the 195s) But I am loving it

A few pics after the tyre upgrade to the PP2s and the headlights downgrade to stock.

fountain miya, your car looks stunningly pretty. Even though I see more than 100 swifts on the road in my daily commute (we all do, they are ubiquitous) i would beg to see more photos of your Swift. Take more of them and post them here, 'gorti't?

Both decisions are very intelligent, SAFETY FIRST. BTW your car looks brilliant (envy envy)
