Thumbs up

Hey nikhil, those alloys are awesome. How much did you pay for it? Also, is there any website where I can check for more models? Anyone knows any dealer I can approach for those in Pune?
Help is much appreciated !!

The website for the alloys is pthwheel.com .I cannot say about their availability in Pune, you might have to go and check out with alloy wheel dealers in the city. And ya, i got the wheels for 25k.

Team_Godspeed, for 16" wheel the correct upsize for swift is 205/50. And more over, driving on Kerala roads with 40 or 35 profile tyres will literally be pain in the a**

Default FFE for swift

Hi, I am planning a header set for my VXi. I have a Green Wind CAI and an SS muffler and happy with the performance and exhaust note. Since I am in Trivandrum, I have very limited options only.

1. Automech - I can get it here easily through their dealer network. Pay the cash (6-7K), go the workshop, fit it. No extra cost.
2. Custom made one from Blore - difficult to source. Have to drive to Blore, stay there 2 days, fix it and drive back. Expense will be almost equal to the cost of a header.
3. Request someone to give their car as a sample and make one header for me at a reputed place in Blore. Extra cost will be courier charge only. But need one kind hearted person with a swift who can volunteer this (any one??)

Out of these three, which one you recommend? Also in terms of performance (not only cost). Waiting eagerly for valuable replies.
