Good catch Vid!!!
I always respected your keen eye.

The caps are with the dealer. I am getting it fitted on Saturday as Friday I was busy.
The alloy pedals are at the factory, it would take another 2 -3 days for it to arrive.

Hey congrats man. Car looks great! just one suggestion, remove the front number plate and just stick number sticker directly on the bumper. The old and the new cedia bumper has a huge air scoops which look great with out the number plate. Done the same to my car.
Enjoy the ride!

Hey raajks.

The Momo steering wheel is an aftermarket fitment by the dealer, right? Did he manage to put in the airbag as well ? (I can see SRS Airbag written on it)

Congrats bro! I've seen how long your decision-making journey has been, and you've ended up with something really special! That's the Evo VII steering wheel you'll be holding everytime you drive out. All you need are the Recaros and the Momo knob -- I think HM is selling them on the new Sports so they're easily available.

Sparco Puma? Very rare in India -- great shoes.

Thanks guys!! for your cool compliments!!

@Pete:
Will work on your number plate suggestion.

@d3mon:
Yes this has the SRS airbag. The fittment is done at the factory itself.
Thats what makes it special and reliable.

@v1p3r:
Thanks bro!! Yeah it was very LOOOOONG but its all great now.
True.. I love the wheel. It gives you an extremely good feel. Emotional delusion of car control.
They are the Sparco Top 3 shoes.

Thanks for the tip mate.

I'll have to think over it though, as the Cedia doesn't come in automatic, which is what I'm used to driving. I don't really know how to drive manual, as it's complicated and tiring.

@Krazyking:
I intend you switch to the Cedia.
Learning a new skill has its own charm. Go manual.

The interiors of EVO IX were like this. Except for climate control and the gear gnob all the goodies are in :-D

Off topic:
I wish they had never discontined the EVO IX.
Would be even better if they sell the EVO IX at 50% of its price and charge a premium for EVO X

Congrats. Car is looking great. Was not even aware that a sports version was still available. Really cool. It's not often one gets to see a manufacturer load a sport variant so well. The attention to details is lovely - momo steering wheel, oz alloys, touch screen DIN,side skirting, etc. Truly worth it.

Thumbs up Congratulations !!!

Hey RAJ ,
just try the black color for the grill ; it jells with the smoked headlights & give a racy look .

shift the number plate to the side , the EVO IX way . . . and have the "spirit of competition" sticker to rear door lower.

it will look awesome

Stunning looks! Do the number plate swap for the HSRPs (High Security Registration Anti Theft Smart Car Number Plates manufacturer India) and stick it directly to the bumper.

Have always drooled after a Sports and looks great in white:-)

@Captain
Aye Aye sir... Will work towards it.
But I am not sure about lowering the car as I am enjoying that aspect for now.

Car was fully loaded and took on some big speed breakers effortlessly.
I love the suspension (Need to have a LOONNG discussion with Narain Kartikeyan on the same). I go with the lowest seating position and I find it pretty comfortable that way.

I would also like to share another aspect.

Turning Radius:
Yesterday, I got lost in Gandhi Bazaar and took to some narrow tight streets.
I found one tight U turn and was able to take it effortlessly.
A handy 4.9m turning radius.

I am planning to go for the 3M
SP 35 is series widely recommended by many 3M dealers.

Can I get some EXPERT recommendations on the same.
