Please no, dont add CNG to your esteem, it will kill your car. My friend had his engine dead in 30k KMs of running with CNG.

Wider tyres improves handling and breaking.

There would be no impact. I'm telling you from my personal experience.

Its expensive for a zen even if they are selling a full FFE from headers till tail end unless its all stainless steel, you can have the FFE from automech at a much lower price and even lower if you get it custom made for your application from some modifiers in delhi, as far i can remember Nitto was officially imported by Navnit Bhasins company, i assume you have read reviews about his work here. Just find out if the shop is related to him. Nothing against him as i have just wisited his workshop once when i was in delhi but many members have bad reviews about his work, hope he has evolved now.

thats too much. Do visit KAKA's shop in CP , he makes customised FFE's of good quality and i can vouch for him from my personal experience.

I agree. Navnit Bhasins petrol pump is a stones throw from my house where he also runs his Mod Shop called Hyperperformance motorsports. He had also opened a shop by the same name about 3 years ago in Old rajinder nagar but had to shut down due to lack of customers ( saying it from my observation as it used to be closed most of the times ).

@Nick - Do check before going for it.

It's near janpath. A cut before or after ( i always get confused ).

Here is his number 9811052772. Do call him to check the exact directions and also note that he's closed on Sundays.

Buzz/txt me if you plan to go on Monday , i might join you as i want to now get my FFE pushed into the body a little more as it's currently proturding out.

Hey,
The maximum a nitto exhaust should cost you would be in the region of 5-6k maximum. for around 10k and some change you could get a remus or something along those lines. 10k for a nitto muffler is robbery. if you know any tuners or some shop guys you should be able to get a good deal.
