hi mavrick-wow nice car there,but some suggestions,1.i think using a silver sticker would be better than the yellow ones to avoid the taxiish look, silver would make it more elegant at the same time sporty,2.please avoid the huge sticker on the front glass, cant read what is written,this looks too bold, make it smaller and a different font, try the font-"sofa chrome',its really good.3. use a imported tail pipe tip, dont go for the locally made one.otherwise beautiful car.

Yea desigNation I will follow your tips for the next stickering to be done later on after i am done with this. I need info on sports mufflers and i dont want to change the vehicle dynamics by changing the system. I heard of a some kind of a musical mufflers that would give the same sound after some KMPH instead of completely going for an overhaul of the exhaust system.

Congrats on your install dude. Please get rid of those yellow stripes from the car.
No offense meant I know its your car and your choice,but looks really whacky.

She would look really hot without those stickers.

Hey Guys....

@akroy----Abhi nothing specific about going with 165 as i initially planned on 155 itself but as i went on with 13" wanted to have a neat look though and stuck with that and though i was very skeptical about it, i am having a smooth ride and good grip too.

@rjstyles69 ----- they are whacky haaan ..i would "styles" once i get bored with it.i liked it though as desigNation suggested as "taxiish"... and even you might think so... it did not really hit me until you folks suggested but right now for some days i would stick with it .

@Sudipto-S-Team---- Thanks sudipto for liking the stripes and in particular i am a Michael Jordan Fan and guess what i have "MJ" on the rear glass and on the front doors with some inspiration that drives me on.

Cheers Vijay

Get rid of the stripes. It would real hot without htem. Also a change of muffler tip. But you are looking for a sports muffler so i think you got that covered.

why dont you get a full free flow exhaust. itll improve the sound and increase your power.

If you only need sound get an after-market end can or get one custom made.Also get an after market air filter for the car.

For FFE PM speedzak he has done some work on his wolf wrapped in sheep's skin.

@ styles----> as i modified the stock wheels n tires just named it so... not in the true sense of an entire overhaul though

"If you only need sound get an after-market end can or get one custom made.Also get an after market air filter for the car"----> I am looking for performance improvement too and do you know any specific guys who do a good job here in bangalore. i need some guidance and info from experts here as i am a nerd in this
