Santosh, the B6 and the springs are in and my god what a difference they have made to how she behaves. No drama on corners whatsoever. The ride is absolutely bliss and the handling has gone to another level. We took a corner at 90kmph on a pretty secluded road and the car behaved as if this was nothing. It's point and shoot!

Below is a pic of how she looks now

And then on Sunday I was able to find a parking next to a Laura on 16" with stock height. Difference is there to be seen!

Also changed the pads to Brembo all round. Braking has improved. Will be changing the disc to brembo in the next 10k kms

Thanks once again!

Default Help!

Guys please help me in deciding if I should paint my alloys. They are 18" Lenso D2R with Nitto Invo tires (225/40R18). Stock color is kind of dark bronze and the color I've been looking into is a shade of gold, not too bright. Inspired by Subaru.

Have been looking around myself for a decent set of momo alloys but haven't come across anyone in Pune. The best bet is Mumbai!

Best bet is to contact the India distributors for the same. For MOMO/OZ it is Hot Tracks in Bangalore, for Borbet it is Petes. For TSW there is someone in Bombay too, and a TSW India facebook page.

Call Hot Tracks and they'll redirect you to their dealer in Pune. I got OZ Envy from Hot Tracks via their Pune counterpart. Unfortunately don't remember the name. It's operated by a Sardar ji and is near the N Mehta store.

Thanks Akshay, I had a look at the Hot Tracks website, unfortunately they do not have any product listing, I mean besides the brands they sell. I guess I will have to get in touch with them personally and find out what stock they have.

Thanks bud ! I will get in touch with them, are you talking about the Dealer which is located in Pimpri? Well that's the name given on their website. Kindly confirm if it is the same guy.

Prithvi, the gold rims look good on the blue vrs. It doesn't look gaudy, you should get them painted! The rim design is awesome too. Good pick!
