Default Re: Olympic White Spark(le) LT: Ownership Log

Nice Spark, even though a the red externals are a little tough to digest atleast for me, but the black vinyl window linings look cool and I have never seen anyone completely cover the floor with transparent vinyl as cleaning it could be tough if its permanently bolted. So what else is planned? How is the stock music system?

@Sparkle, Thanks buddy. For the Red externals, even i was a bit apprehensive about them when i thought of doing it. But the final result looks very good in person

For the Vinyl Floor Lamination, it is not bolted, it is neatly tucked away under the plastic claddings around the interiors and the box under the gear lever. And pasted with a drop of Bond in every corner. I have seen this in many cars which have light colored interiors in Mumbai and thought of getting it done. Cleaning the same is very easy, just a wipe of a wet cloth or the vaccum cleaner and you are done. No stains to the Original Carpet.

Stock Music System is OK, nothing great about it. It is an average sound system, but at the price which you pay its more than enough. One thing i wanted to point out that the Display of the Sound System is very bad under sun light, you cant see anything on the small screen.

Planned:
1. Teflon Coating, is it recommended ?
2. Engine Coating.

Imho none of your planned things are a must have, rather just good to have. Though your car looks nice and shiny after a Teflon coat due to all the polishing involved with some waxy substance, but whats its use in a new car, I really dont know. Most of the people I know take it as a freebie offered by the dealer and not really a worthwhile thing to spend money on. I guess an upgraded ICE system, alloys, good sun film are much better upgrades.

@Sparkled, good suggestion buddy..!! I will surely consider the Alloys & Upgraded ICE Setup. What is you opinion about the Engine Coating.

IMO, it protects the engine from the White marks that can be seen after some usage on the Aluminium parts of the Engine. Is it worthwhile ?

Where are you situated in Navi Mumbai ? i am also in Navi Mumbai.
