JK following so closely.Are you close enough now so that you can get yours in a week.Terrific pick up and even i noticed the air sound.It was almost 50kmph when i noticed it.I thought it was the turbo.Maybe the beading.

ok, 7-8K is nice for a HID when a friend of mine paid 6.5k for HID kit for his bullet 500.

and any plans to get wider tires.

It comes in a suitcase look alike box pack? Saw one of that sort was quoted 8k. Not sure if it even had low and high.

From posts here I understand 255 does wonders to handling.

Regarding the fender cutting as far as i remember reading if you dont increase the width of the alloys to more than 7.00 or 7.50" and keep the tyre size to 255 mm, there is no need to do any fender cutting.

Further i put the stock alloys (from the 2.2 VX, i think they are 6.5" wide) and tyres 255/65. No fender or bumper cutting was required on my bear.

Man congratualations on your purchase.

And with this kind of discount anyone would want to buy the car.

Even I want to own one but not with such a high cost. Let me be a little cheeky here - can anyone get the kind of discount that you received ??

Regards
