Thanks SB! And she's not just going to give bigger cars a complex, she's going to leave them flummoxed!

You guys are all nuts, you know that? Tap, tap tap. I'm outta here.

Oh Ishan, congratulations on the new car! lol
LOL! What a fantastic analysis! Thanks for the wishes Sam!

Man, you are growing old or something.

EDIT : Just read some of the comments. I guess I have missed some information in between.

EDIT Part Deux : Woohoo! Common-rail baby! Awesome, congratulations Ishan (notice I didn't congratulate earlier). From a high-revving Honda to a torque-monster crdi. Perfect for the enthusiast in you as well as the high-miler.
LOL! So the bluff was good eh!!

And yeah, she makes sense right now keeping in mind both the budget & the running costs! A high-revving NA project can be done again anyway!

Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.

So now the car in Red, red wine colour!
Congrats, O Lord of the Tyres!

No sir, even if you put a Lancer badge on the Getz I don't think people will get fooled.

Man, that is a great colour on a great car! Congrats, iraghava.

When I saw the interior pics, I was pretty sure it was a CRDI, as only those have a wood-coloured console near the ICE (IMO the only bad-looking piece on the dash).

Since the engine pics have let the cat out of the bag, I am now getting reminded of the other thread of missing logos in Mumbai. BTW, is Mumbai also known as Bhaiyyaland?

Default Tyre & Wheel Upgrade and Mod List

So as for the upgrades, here is what I have in mind:

Wheels
- I'm currently trying to source a set of forged 15" alloys weighing about 4.2 odd kgs. a piece. Have located something but have to be confirmed by the dealer about their availability. Minimum sourcing time is still 45-60 days. So till the time the wheels arrive, I'll be on stock tyres Gotta take it slow till then!

Tyres
- First set is going to be 195/55 R15 Yokohama Advan Neova AD-07's. I need to put one set on my own car & do an extended test of the same. More options can be tried later as the miles pile on.

Tuning Box - Will be installed after about 10k kms. Will test all settings on the box & post a detailed test report on it. Might also consider other boxes if I can find support for them & if they're cost effective like Pete's.

Filter - Still undecided since I'm not a fan of the additional noise. Will do a comparison with KP's car & then decide on this component.

Brakes
- Upgraded brakes are definitely on the list especially once I have the tuning box installed. I believe Pete's is going to get some options soon.

Suspension
- Probably will get some better stuff but this will only happen after 20-30k kms. But I think some decent options are out there & can be explored.

Interior - Am thinking about a full leather interior and bolstered seats (can be done on the stock seats). Let's see how this goes. Will also refinish the wood finish on the centre console & door handles.

ICE
- No idea yet, very confusing department! Am retaining some of the old stuff from Dhanno, so will figure something out in the coming days & update.

Now that I think about it, I think this is going to be one long thread!!

Details on the sales process, initial experience (especially of filling diesel!) and more later......Keep tuned!

Congrats! In my opinion, the non-body coloured handles don't look bad at all, since they are the same shade as the black rubber strip on the sides. I feel you should not get them painted. Of course, this is a matter of personal preferences.

First I read your post,then saw your sign- Distinguished BHPian, and then thought to myself, can this really be true. I mean here I was reading posts about people congratulating you for a outdated,underrated car(IMO).Man, I thought how two faced can people get.But then I got to know about the wolf in sheep's attire and I came to this conclusion that this forum is better then watching some of the Vikram Bhatt movies

I don't think he has the 1.1L badge on his car, that photo is from a different car, right Ishan ?
