Thanks a bunch to my good set of friends/bhpias - Sri Hari, Arvind [ Pai/Manjunath ], Venky & Unni without which this couldnot have been a reality.

Hi Bibin,

These are very nice clicks, for sure!

Keeps wanting for more, as always!

The one with drifting backdrop is a cool one!

After a long break, the Big B is back with his new outfit. A weatherproof tuxedo was very much needed since it does it's duty in an open area.

Here goes the details of the same.

Brand Name :- TPH Covers
Model :- Smart Cover
Total Cost :- 10,000/- [9500/- + 500/- for Shipping]
Website :- http://tphcovers.com/
Facebook :- https://www.facebook.com/tph.covers

FIR :- The cover is of superior quality & has got a separate bag for itself.My initial impression is that the cover is definitely worth it, especially the perfect fit & the material.

Furthermore there are some reflective strips in the front and the back which helps if your car is parked beside the road.

As the famous phrase says, pictures speak a 1000 words, here you go.

Hi Bibin,

That is a true Tuxedo for the car! Good purchase, though expensive shall do that much required 'protection' for your ride.

I envy your car's pictures, very well taken.

I am also planning to upgrade my Highbeam bulbs to OSRAM nightbreakers like you and Amolpol did.

Any specifc inputs for me to bear in mind?

There is nothing you need to change as part of this since it just gives a brighter light for the same specifications, except that your light will be less yellowish than it was before.

Yes I do know that this request has been pending from my side for long.Probably I will see if I can get some pics taken with the headlights.

Sorry, but the last pic takes the cake!

Fun apart, that's a set of nice pics. Looks like too many predators out for a single prey!

Hi Bibin,

Nice pictures there! The gleam is awesome and I like the stance of the car's posing for pictures

I notice that the key fob design has changed from your car model to mine. My Key Fob has only two buttoms and no 'alarm' button
Unnecessary cost cutting from Toyota for an expensive SUV!

Now it was time to get the Wheel Alignment & Balancing checked. Back to the most trusted place in Bangalore, Madhus at 09:00 AM in the morning and I was the first customer present. The experience was pretty good with Mosin helping me around and monitoring the entire work right from beginning till end.

Overall cost including Wheel Balancing + Alignment + Complete Nitrogen Refill = 1200/- [Including a team-Bhp discount.]

Recommended Interval = 5000 KM

Here we go with some snaps

Been some time since I posted,so here we go with some key upgrade stuffs.

KL-31-E-X00X : 2013 Toyota Fortuner, the world is mine-20140417_113752.jpg

ICE Upgrade - Yes finally that has happened and it has been thoroughly detailed below

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sound-...ml#post3435896

New Navigator - Its been a while since my MapMyIndia Zx 150 had been serving me pretty well. Thought it's time to give its new cousin a try and hence got Zx350. Looked out for the prices and was not matching to my budget and finally Olx.in came to my rescue. Got a hardly used MapMyIndia from Chennai for Rs 11,000.

KL-31-E-X00X : 2013 Toyota Fortuner, the world is mine-20140417_201259.jpg

Pedal Sets - The rubber pedal sets were feeling a little hard and I felt like I'm driving a lorry or so. so upgraded this to the new stylish pedals and believe it or not its simply so smooth. cost came upto Rs 4,800

Hi Bibin!

What a superbly maintained ride you have there.

Long time no see? Time for an update I guess

Bibin,
It's been a long time.
How's is it going?
Am planning to buy fortuner very soon. And need your help on the below questions -
1. How much did it cost for 20K service onward?
2. Do you feel stressed out during long trips like 600 kms or so, due to bumpy ride?
