Happy ending finally :-) Enjoy your car.

Can you please suggest any 'good places' to check out for 2nd hand cars in Bangalore, for cars in the budget of 9-13Lakhs? Thanks.

Already started - front infinity compo's and a mother of a sub- setting 0 is too much and it glows like 50cent's gonads in the dark. I need to spend time setting it up.

Nice first impression Ajit. And great coulour too. 15000 kms is nothing. It always helps to be patient and look around. You will always land a good deal.

Great write-up, Ajmat. All that waiting was worth it! Enjoy the car.

I said it before but I still want to say it again -- beautiful snap (its the wallpaper of both my machines, and my phone now). If you show me a pic of Scarlett Johannson in the nude and this pic, and ask me to choose, I'd take the car.

Logical upgrade from the Vtec, and just what you needed with your European preferences. Congratulations! Look forward to reading long-term reviews of the car, and some inevitable modifications.

nice find ajit! love the car...have always done. didn't buy a new one myself 3 years ago. was too expensive at 16l. ever since...have been planning on buying one. but like you said...if its in my budget, the cars been decked. if the cars ok, the price is too high. looked at a few V6s too. not only are they more expensive...they're too big for daily commute...especially in the CBD.

a friend of mine owns one of these...i try to get as much driving time when we go out on weekend nights! love it all the more then. another friend of mine owns a red one which he bought for 7.5l. had it remapped. claims it is now 240 bhp. i try and drive not ashamed to say, i get scared!

good luck with your ride...and keep us posted.

Congrats Ajmat. Car seems to be in great shape. Hoping to see you burn the road at the next track day.

Yeah, the "T" lag is something that will take time getting used to.
