Michelin P4ST: 5000+ Km

I am very impressed with these tyres. They are super silent, low noise and comfortable. Grip is good but not the best like Perfinzas.

This is how they look now

I used to get only 20-25k kms tyre life in S-Cross. For sure the Michelins would give me double life .

It's been almost 5 years since I bought the car. Thought to spice things up and Lenso Jager-Dyna wheels are in

Lenso wheels and Eibach springs have totally changed the character of the car, I am in love with the stance. Painting the calipers also turned out to be a good Idea

I do not know if it's just me, but the design of alloy reminds Punto alloys, in positive way. Can it be because it's by Lenso? And painting the calipers in red looks just great.

Motul X-Cess 5W40: 500+ Km

I am super impressed with this engine oil. The engine was never this silent and free revving even when it was new. Motul has exceeded my expectations.

Rear Shocks

Rear KYBs have developed minor leak after 13k Kms. I came across a brand called ARC suspension and was planning to give it a try. Thanks to Team BHP, I found a detailed thread about the issues faced in an I20. I have 10k Kms run OE shocks with me. There are no major trips anytime soon, will change them along with engine mount.

Engine Mount

The part has been ordered by Wagen Tunen, should arrive in a week or two.

Any more mods in pipeline ?

1. Garrett Intercooler
2. Direct Air Intake

I hope we can push the power a little more after these mods, Rajiv should be able to do his magic.

~5 year old / 70k+ Kms run...Does it look so ?

Haha! This is absolutely epic! When the post first loaded, I thought you had wrapped the car (you absolutely got me there! ). But, I must say, the S-Cross does look super good in that Fake Taxi Livery! Also, love the red one, suits the S-Cross very well.

Darker colors definitely suit the S cross better because of all the black cladding and plastics. The car looks quite overdone with all the cladding, black pillars, stickers etc. on bright colors.

A deep metallic color, perhaps a bottle green like this will look nice.

Things look out of place otherwise. The white car doesn't do justice to those beautiful rims.
