There is (was) one shop called 'Basha'. Those days they were more into upholstry business with a massive production set up. They were selling alloys and other stuffs also. This was the year 1992. I hope they still exist. Next to a hotel called City Tower.

There's Koya's as well. Koyas started off similarly doing major upholstry jobs - now they sell interior and exterior accessories. They even change the entire interiors of your car for you - however all this requires your vehicle to be physically present. I've been told that Koyas can address the 'cheap' greys of the Tata Safari - I've seen an Indigo with beige interiors (including plastics) long before the Sx was launched. Check Koyas out for what its worth.


There are plenty of tuners in CBE too, from the likes of Leelakrishnan and J Anand to little known but excellent road side garages, but I dont know how or where to find them - we need a CBE implant in TBHP. While you're there check out the karting track on Mettupalayam road, too. You will find a few speed freaks there over the weekends.

Check out the Kari Speedway. You maybe able to do some hot laps in your road car for a nominal fee.

Vulken Auto, Sorry I could not reply to your message.

In chennai, Mahaveer Automobiles deals with such products & you can find lot of shops in GP road. It seems that there is market for this in Chennai.

The karting track in metupalayam road (thudiyalur) is closed now. Call up Kari Speedway and try to fix a track day. Have a look at the cars there. There is nothing much yuo can actually shop for in coimbatore. But you could probably meet a few people there.

There is a car dealer near Adayar Ananda Bhavan. He has quite a few classics lined up the last time I checked. Maybe yuo could drop in there too.
