@ maverick: thanks bro, i bought this car from True value, and spacers were already added by the previous owner, i just have to add 13"ers....so, you plan to add alloys in near future some time ?

After there tires were installed, I went to alignment, as the steering was a little tilt towards left hand side.

Got 4 tires for Rs. 8750

Alignment done for Rs. 150 from Chankya Puri petrol pump.
Ride quality is amazing and car is running smoothly. Tire is quiet silent unlike the Goodyear.

I went to the tire shop with a cousin, he was insisting me to get Bridgestone or Michelin but 145/80/12 (Stock size)

But I was planning to get 165/70/12 Hankook.

Somehow, the shop owner (he was my cousin's friend) convinced me to get Michelin, and now I am loving the Michelins, though I sometimes feel to DIY the white letter or my Michelin !! but it would look bad after 2-3 washes..

Hello Everyone !!

I dont know whether I should post this upgrade, but lol, I was getting bored at work and my boss is gone to Mexico.

Well, I got a new battery yesterday for my Zen, its an Amaron, thanks to dad, he forgot to switch off the fog lights sat eve, and next day the battery was completely dead, not even horn/ blinkers were working, and even the ignition signs were not visible

Last battery was installed approx. 4 years back, that was an Amaron too, there is no specific reason that I have installed Amaron once again

Pics of old battery.

This happens when you run aftermarket fog lights with relay, Minda dual horn, 90/100 halonex tubes in headlamps with relay a amp and a sub

Hey nick17s,

Your thread is turning more into a long term ownership thread(you could probably ask the mods to move it to a more sutiable section), what future mods have you planned on your zen?
