Is your mondeo black?.... i remember seeing a black mondeo with D3s on peddar road...being driven by a driver!! I was gonna say that it was very strange that your Getz had EagleF1s and your mondeo still had the stock goodyears!!! glad u got that fixed.

Honestly, a good set of tires is a very worthy investment in safety! Although personally im kinda 50-50 about whether my tires make my car safer or just make me drive faster!!! lol

I'll post pics of the Getz when I take some. The rims, as I mentioned before, are stock. My Mondeo's silver and nobody but me ever drives it!

As for whether the tyres make the car safer or make you drive faster...good question, but I'd have to say safer!

hey techno,
u can get a higher top speed with the AC switched off and windows rolled up.assume about 10-15%speedo error on your maruti.


make sure u have the right tire pressure whenever you drive.
drive safe

Yes, it will affect the back pressure in the exhaust system which in turn will affect power delivery.

hey...this is my first post

cheatingdeath....6k seems par for the course for a muffler replacement...but you could have gotten anyone with a mig welder to check it out...normally these are fixable....

top speeds (all speedo kmh)

maruti 800 - 110
santro 1.0 - 145
honda city 1.5 - 180+
subaru forester - 160+

got a new baleno...only done 130 so far...letting it bed in a bit...
