Man, i would love to do this every single day (if it is possible). But yeah unfortunately i don get enough time to do this, other than the occassional "just touch 100kmph" daily (on odo ie).

Absolutely man, i love that clean rear look...though all (except ya, me and very few others) are against it.


Oh and between, after service she is back to her normal self. Clutch problem is there, but it is still feelin very smooth. Can make out in the initial pick up stage though(esp in the first gear)..

Alloy: AVA- 15"- 18k for a set of 5 (Got a good discount since dealer is a known guy to my friend)
Tyre: Pirelli- 195/55/R15- 4.2k per piece

Bought it from bangalore itself. PCD is 100. No exchange done.

Do you really mind meshing the grille mister? and plonk in some FFE, filter et al. If you still got change, a turbo?

Its fine after sevicing, so no need for decarbonizing. Tappet adjustment did the trick.
