Exclamation Recommended shops in Bangalore

Fellers,

Much obliged if I could be enlightened with list of trustworthy accessory stores in Bangalore. I'm getting my black Swift Vxi shortly and have decided to immediately get the OEM wheels/tyres swapped with 195/60 15 Goodyear Eagle F1s and BSA wheels (loved their chromed design no. 334).

Pl help!

Arrow Slightly disappointed

Guys,

Without being overbearing, I thought I could get some more help here - some of you are from Bangalore too !

I'm really counting on your suggestions to decide the accessory shop. I booked my Swift Vxi black today and should have the car in the coming week ! Some more proactive help would be infinitely appreciated.

Hey Mugen Power and Jay,

Thanks much guys! I am now armed with info to kill - all thanks to u fellers!

Judging from the Car Accessory Stores thread, methinks I'll limit my mod endeavors to Car Shringar, Pit Stop and and Sprocket.

One final Q though - how much do u think I should pay for Goodyear Eagle F1s and BSA 15" chrome alloys?

i think an underrated but phenomenal store for car audio installations in Auto Shop in koramangala( a very tiny unassuming place).
i love the place coz he gives u "sound" advice (pun intended.....the guy can understand your needs and gives you an awesome configuration.
i have a mix n match installation in my tata sumo and boy for the little i've actually done.....my car rocks.
this evening i was at a lake bed close to home (a pretty chilled out getaway for bangaloreans) and my car was the dj booth.......we usd a fm transmitter with my laptop and boy! we had some good music going!!!!

Quite true, Stevie. That place is run by a pretty decent duo of brothers. I also got all my "mix n match" audio components from them only, and i am pretty happy with it. Also got my seat covers from them. Reasonably priced shop that is.

Prakash, this is the one thats 2 lanes behind the COCO petrol bunk, the lane that has a temple on it, and i think a honda scooters service center as well. PM me if u need exact location.

Oh and by the way, i went to Sprocket once, the price they were quoting for car wax was daylight robbery. Didnt step into that shop after that.

I second. Sachin auto guys are really nice to deal with. We have so far done 5 ICE installations from there, and all are done pretty well.

But I don' think they have tyres and alloys?

theres a new shop on bellary main road bang opposite CBI, (opposite the agricultural college, next to the gas station and roshans restaurant-a pork n booze hangout), its called AUTO GRID.looks nice from the outside and when i went in it seemed pretty nice for the first day.but let me tell you, the guy think he can take you for a long ride coz this part of town does not have too many such stores.i think he will temper down looking at the competetive rates these days.(the long ride scence is over!all mature customers these days)

i walked it to check the place out......a good set of alloys, (fake)recaro seats(pretty nice ones), some K&N kits and quite a few head units and component systems.he had one gigantic rockford fosgate sub that was placed with an lightening audio monobloc.
visited the place again............can u believe it.........he said 14k for a single seat, street glow pedals for 8k. he quoted 14k for a K&N for my opel corsa while all the others quoted about 8 to 9 k.a normal 13"alloy rims set of 5-very simple 5 spoke hyper silver was for 18k-beat that!!!!!
this guy is ridiculously expensive.if any of you guys check this place out, i am sure you will tell me how expensive he really is.
i think AUTOSHOP rules coz the guy exactly knows what your car need.Jumar there is extremely helpful.
for all those who wanna visit this place, go past tata teleservices on the forum road, next you will see bosch, there is a left turn there before the pizza corner road.take the left and drive/ride down.just before a temple on the right hand side, sachin's AUTOSHOP(opposite is a DVD library and a travel house i think!!!) everyone please check this place out for good audio installations.he is a DB Drag winner as well as blaupunkt certified installer.my personal recommendation
