I opened the pack finally and it was joy to see the stickers in flesh. Got so used to seeing them on this forum that it brings a different sense of feeling to have them in your hands.

Here is a piccie I clicked of all the stickers, will stick them up on my baby tomorrow after I give her a wash

The rear reflector leds have arrived from Korea this morning and I'm pretty happy with the product. I just cant wait to get them fixed to the car.

Waiting for the review. If it looks good, even I will order it from Ebay. Saw it for around $45 or something

I will do a test soon and let you know. I'm inclined to buy more lights and install all items together. Quite low on Vitamin M

Hi mate, the rear sticker on the windshield is stuck right in front of the 3rd brake light. I agree its not easily noticable but the reason I put it there so that it gets noticed when the brake lights activate, especially in B2B traffic

Alloy wheel plans are very much there but honestly the roads are pathetic even by Mangalore standards. Lets see how it goes after a few months, roadworks have just begun now that the monsoon is drifting away.

Cheers,
Alston

Hey Alston!
Your Beat looks awesome with the stickers man!
Just cant wait for you to post pictures of those LEDs installed!
Are you planning to connect them to the brake lamp circuit or keeping them on with the tail lamps?

Thanks Auto freak for your appreciation

Even I'm eager to get the lights installed, they will be activated only on brake lamp and not on tail lamp, I'm planning to buy more lights and install all at once. By this year end, the car will look different I bet

Thanks Zahin, that even two large stickers on one location of the car, say bumper, would be an overkill....

Hi Alston, What is the mileage you are getting now? I checked with my beat LT and confirmed it as around 15 in city with 30% AC on. My beat now clocked 2500 kms only. And i felt that the AC is not that much powerful like the ones in Figos or Swifts. Expecting your feedbacks on this.
