Default ICE v/s Performance - think you can pick ONE?

Performance modifications and ICE setups split the modifications & accessories section almost 50:50.

Given say, a car that has fairly decent audio to begin as well as more than enough performance to keep an enthusiast satisfied what would you pick ?

The audio setup of your dreams? OR Enough power to satisfy anyone on indian roads.

Now coming to which car has potential for mad ICE as well as potential to satisfy the performance nutheads.



There is only one in the 15lakh bracket and you guessed it!

'The Skoda Octavia RS'

So here is the deal:
You have to decide whether you would rather have the best of audio in your car and live with the stock 150hp or a monster 300++ hp daily drive with Skoda Symphony standard audio.

No SKODA BASHING PLEASE

ICE if the car is in warranty.

Performance if not.

Plain and Simple

I think performance will win this poll by a large margin. After all, we're team bhp, not Team dB

Bet Zak gonna give different numbers.

For me, 200 bhp SUV (stock) plus some 1lac worth ICE.

Better to get a powerful car and then ICE it.

Agreed,but then we could all buy Maybachs with our hypothetical unlimited budgets enjoy stock ice and stock performance*.So lets keep an even playing field.









*Yeah right .. I'd still give it to Brabus

Why Did you Not count Exterior MODS?? LOL, I want All. A Very good Looking Car, Decent Performance Mods and a Nice Sounding ICE Setup.

In Short My Civic

Mayback nah.

I didnt say stock ICE. And the more you spend on increasing performance the more louder you car becomes making it only good for a SPL setup.

m4ugr8: Lucky you. But hate pothole and traffic doesnt give way for you.

I am waiting for the warranty to get over. I am done with ICE and very happy with the outcome.
