Nice car, this is the kinda of car that I would like to buy and mod. Clean yet old enough to be a good deal and low on insurance. Take good car of here, I would consider her hardly run in.

I would do what Jaggu has said.

Congrats Denzil! Run it on stock headlamps for a while. Malaysia is the best place to get this stuff. Plenty of shops there. Or else you could try Singapore or Thailand. It will be a bit difficult in India.

Default at last

hey guys

i picked up my car today at last , got it checked with a friend who is a mech , he suggested that the it needs normal service done. will get it done one of these days . however overall the car is in pretty good shape.

fixed a pair of new rear 6 " Boston speakers , currently it has a original HU kenwood cassette and a kenwood 800W amp . thinkin of upgrading it gradually .need to get the car serviced first on priority basis.

Don't forget to replace rubber components as already suggested in earlier posts, the reason being that these will get brittle with age, even if unused. Check the car service history though.

1. Congrats on your new Car
2. Awesome ride
3. What about the ICE?
4. Get some better footwear & some alloys
5. What's the FE?
6. When are you fitting a FFE, CAI and Turbocharger?
This is a list of standard questions/comments which will be thrown at Denzil. So I'm making life easy for people. Depending on what you want to ask Denzil, just quote the number (like in telegrams).
Example a post below.
Hi Denzil! 1, 3, 4 & 5.

Why would you want that? The stock lamps cost around 3.5K for the pair. Or are you referring to the bulbs?
