Mubarakaan 22Ji. Your ride looks 'Hot' like a newly wed Punjabi Mutiyaar . I guess you had the right idea of buying a base model and then pimping it her up and overall spending more than the actual top model . We Punjabi's are like this only..

BTW how's the ride quality with the low profile tyres.

the alloys have a stainless steel finish or an aluminium finish ? from the pictures it looks like a stainless steel (is there any other term to refer to such finish) and this is what i meant bling. But all said i repeat your car is a head turner. a spoiler similar to the ANHC would giv it a good look.

is there any change in GC after changing tyres & rims ? how is the ride comfort on rough roads ?

@isldhn
Thanks veere.. Ya thats why we(Punjabis) are different from the whole world infact being one of the smallest states in india we are being looked at as ROYALZ!!

@donarun
No my dear, its not steal, it's a CHROME finish and look very nice, pics are not that clear, i will post some more of the alloys when i will get my ride washed and they will be shining like diamonds.

Hehe!! I like that short form for 22ji.

Anyways Congrats brar.arsh for the spanking new mutiyaar (as they call it). Excellent choice of color and alloys really look smashing (though I would have preferred pure white alloys - they would have looked simply sexy) . Enjoy her and drive safe.

I presonally also prefer batra. He's got a decent collection and is a fairly flexible fellow. I think i know which audio shop you talking about.Its next to Goel motors i think.They all the same actually.How much did he give you the system for approx.?
