If you are travelling on the ring road, I suggest any of the three pumps opposite Hyatt, though I would suggest IOC / BP. All of them are company owned outlets.
@Eddy: Dude that bunk near the post office is right behind my home and i tanked her up there yesterday. Any particular reason why you suggested to avoid that??


I will be travelling on ring road daily and intend to use the IOC company owned one. Just hope that they are still selling normal diesel.

I got lower efficiency filling up from that pump. A friend reported bad quality of fuel too leading to more vibrations. So I stay away from the pump.

The IOC in virendar nagar ( opposite the bike repair shops, with the Nirulas outlet ) is much better.

Where did you get the alloys and the tyres from ? How much moolah ?

Do you plan to do something with the headlamps ? I find them quite inadequate and plan to change but dont know which ones to go for.

That white swift rocks. Those alloys make it rock even harder. Congratulations.

This one is only selling premium diesel, isnt that not recommended for our car?

BK Tyres Lajpat Nagar recomendded by Ishaan.
I gave my old tyres and rim for 1k per piece.
14k for 4 alloys and 4.4k per tyre
In the end i paid 27.5k for 4 tyres and 4 alloys.

I was staying in Vikas Puri but shifted to Dwarka a couple of months back. Last I filled there, normal petrol (for my Ikon) was available.

Find something about the lights man. I dont plan to upgrade to 90/100. Will stick to stock wattage with either Philips or Osram bulbs. Dunno where to source them from though. Lots of fakes in the market.

Did you get all your accessories from Lajpat Nagar ?

Congrates once again for the lovely alloys !!

As far as headlight upgrade is concerned, you may have to look at the costing part

Low Budget, yet effective - Upgarde to 90/100 Osram/Philips with better wiring and holders. All the fitment should cost you under 1-1.2K. Though i usually do not recommend to get upgraded to 90/100, as it may damage your reflectors in long term while producing extra heat then the usual 55/60 ones.

High Budget, wonderful light throw - Upgrade to HIDs. Phillips/Bosch, Entire kit including wiring, blasts and HID tubes will cost somewhere around 8-9 K.

Cheers

Another viable is to upgrade to better bulbs of the same stock wattage, which is what I will do. But the problem again is to source these original bulbs since there are a lot of fakes in circulation, especially philips.
