just to clarify ( as i really dont like it if people downgrade my ride ) following are the details of my ride...

car = 3.65
autopsyche = 2.4
alloys + lights + system + recaros + steering + gear knob + woofer + amp + weather strips + sunroof beedings ( these were all purchased by me from germany and locally ) = 1.8 lacs

so its not for 3 + 3 = 6 lacs.

cheers

Varun

Full paint job even at the best of places in a booth = 35 - 40k Standox
Tyres with rims = 50k maybe a little more
Audio = 5k each set of Bull speakers = 10k
M3 mirrors = 10k

All the other stuff has a lot of variables (grey areas) - so really cannot comment. But the total did seem to be high ! Anyways if you are happy - that is all that matters, right ??


Cheers

tires + rims = 50 k

try finding the cost of each yokohama s-drive 225/40/r18. its 11200 each

and by this logic the rims costed me only 5200 for a set of 4, wow thats cheap.

Any how, i dont wnat to get into an argument here. this thread was started just to share the pics of my car thats it. Some people liked it and some didnt. Every ones free to speak out here.

Im extremely happy with my ride and you are most welcome to come and check her out some weekend if you want.

Regards.

i dont mean to go off topic,but ricky with all due respect, is it still fair to keep on going after autopsyche?
i have no association with him,and have just met him only once,i know most of the things you point out are valid or have a basis.but things can be said neutrally too.

the man has talent creatively and it is his wish what he charges for.i know you have had issues with him,but lets not keep pointing it out in all the threads,it spoils the tone of the thread.

i dont mean to start any war or any discussion now,was just my suggestion from one bhpian to another.

anyways coming back to the topic,amazing car varun_m,looks superb!

# Thanks for agreeing that the points I make are valid AND have a basis


the man has talent creatively and it is his wish what he charges for.i know you have had issues with him,but lets not keep pointing it out in all the threads,it spoils the tone of the thread.

# Totally agree with the creative bit # I have no issues with him as a person, I have issues with his way of working


i dont mean to start any war or any discussion now,was just my suggestion from one bhpian to another.

# Your suggestion is welcome. War ? Why ?

anyways coming back to the topic,amazing car varun_m,looks superb!

# My answers to your points

Thanks
