What do u mean by a nut under the car?

Thanks bro. Yeah that is true!! Am expecting more performance figures after 5000 KM.
I am so sorry that I couldn't follow your advise on the alloys.
I really liked the design, so went for it

Well, there is a set of big nuts (four of them on one side) that fixes the front wheel assembly to the chasis. Couldn't inspect that myself. One of them was a bit loose according to my friend, which caused the sound. It sounded like something is going to break under the car. Thank God it was not due to the new set of larger tires.

Thanks tez.
I asked the Hyundai guys to change the OVRM and handle paint before delivery (also to fix the spoiler with body colored paint), but because of heavy rain here it will delay the delivery as they said they require atleast a sunny day for the paint to dry. So I decided to do it on first service.

- The headlight is pathetic on highways and needs immediate replacement.
- The mist formation on the outer surface of windshield is really annoying and forms really fast between each viper strokes (I am doubting the quality of glass), need
to buy the Bosch wiper blades.
1. Headlight is very pathetic. That is why i fitted Hella Comet 500 (100W) and connected it to the HeadLight Switch itself.
2.I am facing the same problem with the blades. At night i am getting totally blinded when a vehicle is approaching towards me. Please tell me if bosch wiper blades solve this problem.

Thanks a lot man.
I really love the alloys you have put on your VDi. I wanted the same design, but couldn't grab one with the correct PCD

Hi greenhorn
Me working in technopark, and staying near karyavattom. What about you?
I would love to meet you guys. When are we having our next team meeting??

I have already planned my ICE setup. Sourced speakers and sub from abroad, alpine components and infinity sub. Will have to fix them next week when I go to cochin to meet my friends. End-effect is in my mind.

Clever was with me today morning

And I guess we have two at Techo. One is maroon and the other one should be relatively new (1-2 month old),dont know the color.

Sorry about hijacking the thread.
