Hey Gang,
* I am getting a package next month and would like to know if you guys need anything for your personal use.

My package will include:
K&N Filters (Carbon Fibre, Titanium and Xtream)
MSD Ignition (Coils and Plug Wires)
Accel Ignition (Coils and Plug Wires)
Splitfire Platinum Plugs
Bosch +4 Plugs
and a few more things.
This is my list, but i can get anything else you may need (But USA only at the moment. As this package would come from there and we could save on shipping)


Thanks
Dom

How about all that you are calling for, and a 12-month credit line ?

Just kidding Dom. Thanks for offering. I am sure some team-bhp"ians" will get in touch with you for custom parts.

Awwwwwwwsome, that lappy would make me do my accounting on looks alone. But make sure you get the 512 MB ram or more, I think 256 is the standard. Also do they offer any screen options? If they do, choose the WSXGA+...its the one I am using on my current Compaq X1000 (love it to death) and the resolution is 1680x1050.

Hey,
No bro, for my customs guy to clear it each package shouldnt exceed 32 kilos. As my uncle in the USA works for FEDEX i get a bit discount and have contacts in the Mumbai. If i ask some relative to get me 32kilos stuff they will kick me out of the house man!. Where will they bring anything then ,

The laptop has the 512mb also i have asked for the 2.53ghz processor. and with the DVD-R drive i will find out the screen options. . Strange that they dont make a Ferrari Carry Case. I have to buy one for 150$ (good one) but no ferrari logo or anything

hey pal,
the cielo is a very heavy vehicle. One thing ive noticed you could add a few horses by freeing up the intake in the car. Is it the anil who does body kits?. If so ask him to speak to shreyas in bangalore to get you a filter. He knows me well ill send the filter if you require one. Also have you got a header done by him?. That too would do a god bit.

Happy Revving
Dom
