hey guys
sorry for responding late December has been a sad month for me actually
my dad expired so no works on cars etc
but still for the update the driver broke the bumper further more causing the bumper guard to break on the left side of the car

the ABS i'm told is still the same now whenever i press the brakes the car moves to the right ! !

got it checked the guy says "sahab khol ke dekhna padega ?"

otherwise she's running like a dream
but once the bumper and the ABS is ready she is up for sale maybe in Feb or so....

Jubin, I'm sorry to hear about your dad.
Regarding the ABS light, did you check and change the OVP?
regards

or we rather call it detailing !!! a very good polishing can do the job and it will also cost you less. BTW your car looks really good ( i envy you !!!)

Jai Ho..

Hi Jubin

How much did the new bumper cost and how much was painting/fitting?

I am thinking of replacing my bumper if the costs are reasonable.
