hi is yours the normal DI Turbo engine?
my old one with the XD3PU engine used to go upto 140 at the very MAX - but used to judder and shudder at such speeds as well as take a very long time to reach such speeds. also the brakes werent all that great, to handle such high speed.
the crde bolero storm probably will hit 150 or so, but with its brakes, frankly its not a great idea.
Bolero is best driven at 90-100 max on highways. Maximum comfort, great FE and feels very solid and peaceful on the road.

I drive them a lot on single track Hill roads (Tamilnadu, Kodaikanal Hills) and a biker took a close cut on a bend in great speed. I was on control and reduced speed, being up the hill. Luckly he is safe and just a bush ripped off from the bar. No scratches!!!!
Vehicle is really a ultimate fun, So far it has done 13,000 in 4 months. Drove to Chennai, bangalore, trichy, etc., the sad bit is it doesn't do more than 130km/hr where you get to meet crde monsters on the two lane track speeding up to 160 :(

The Storm can be driven all day at 120 and the brakes are ok for that speed. I just got the LSPV setting checked and brakes are much better than before.

will live with the 120 part. but if one pushes it to 150-160, I for one, would be worried about being able to stop in time, in case of emergency!

I have driven the Storm at true 147kmph(taken thru GPS) with 4 people, AC and fully loaded with luggage and it was very stable and no body roll.. Brakes is a different story though.

I don't think Bolero is meant for speed . It's the stance & sheer presence.

Hey guys any body give some info about availability of Projector Headlamps for Bolero. Any Mod stations you suggest. Thinking of pimping my ride a bit in a different way.

Dr HoleShot,
Nice Bolero there. Now, how about some nice Alloys and Tyres?
Is the Bullbar tilted towards the right side (driver side)?

You get the cheap Chinese HID kits for around 4k, but then reliability and performance would be a let down.
Bosch and Philips makes some good stuff.
Check the Auto Lighting thread @ http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ting-here.html
