Hey binoyb22,

How much did the upsize cost you and did you get it done at the dealership or outside?

Regards,
Sajan

hi binoyb , congrats on your new car and its heartening to hear that the car is rock steady at 110 kmph after your tyre upgrade. and Do ensure that you get your ehadlights upgraded if you plan to do any long distance night driving ... and dont push yoru car to speeds of over 110 kmph , right now get a feel of he car andd then do it , IMHO 800 kms of driving is not good enough to get a good feel fo the car. especially the new one . Also remember that the treatment that you give to the car during its run-in period is very important.

Congrates for your new raging power beast.

Do wait for 2nd or 3rd service and then REV this beast. But Be Safe Mate. Do update about the stability at higher speeds with these tyres as i'm also planning to get this Red Raging Beast this year.

Light upgrade go for hID kids but only less thank 6000k colour temperature preferably 4300k. Or else visibility will suffer during night time rains. I have 130w/110w philips Rallye Bulbs installed with ceramic holders and a relay installed . no problems for the past one and a half year.

Congrats on your new buy. Do post some pictures of the car and especially of the tyres. I am sure the ride must have improved after the change and you mentioned that 110kmph its stable. If sedans aren't stable at 110kmph what is the point of buying one? The real test is only after 140kmph.

My viva crdi is rock solid until almost 150kmph and after that the nervousness starts creeping in.
