CaliforniaKnight How is the car doing now? 24th February 2009
S@~+#0$# Yes Mohit, will do soon:) 8th October 2008
crazydiablo You gotta update you gallery with whatever has gone into the car. Nice machine. 7th October 2008
S@~+#0$# Yes, low and mid end torque has improved. 5th gear is untouched, so I get good economy in overdrive. 16th January 2008
S@~+#0$# Diff is from Zen, 3rd and 4th gears are from the Maruti 1000. Car is much quicker now. 16th January 2008
esteem_lover What have you done to the gear box ? Do you have better low end torque now ? 16th January 2008
sangam gods speed 18th December 2007
S@~+#0$# Pani, I have PMed you more info. Stick to 175/70/13 or 185/60/14. 185/70/14 is the wrong upsize. 5th November 2007
Pani Hi...I am planning to put 185/70/R13 tyres, how much would be the drop in mileage over its current 155/80/R13 tyres according to your opinion ?? 2nd November 2007
S@~+#0$# I got the steering in a good deal for about Rs.8000 from Malaysia. 1st November 2006
payam nice job dude how much did u get ur steering wheel and from where? 28th October 2006
R32_GTR Like the Steering wheel...Isotta was the second option over the MOMO TREK R... 3rd July 2006
S@~+#0$# FYI, the Autometer shift-lite also hits you in your eye every time you start the car. I am not into serious-racing and this location suits me well. 5th May 2006
S@~+#0$# I like the shift-lite pointed slightly away from my left eye. I had it closer in my Zen and found it the brightness a pain especially in the dark. 5th May 2006
dhirajs santosh,dont u think the tacho is lil away from where it should be??? 4th May 2006
S@~+#0$# Thanks redrage, my car does a quick 160 and I took it upto 180 with 10-15 more. I am more into initial and mid-range and is more than sufficient. 3rd May 2006
redrage ok.. so makes the car quicker initially then? what about top whack......? anyway awesome alloys man... car displays a touch of class.... 28th April 2006
S@~+#0$# Makes the car more quicker. I am using a combo of esteem and 1000 gears. This is a combo used in most drag prepared E-Zens/Esteems. 21st April 2006
redrage how does the closer ratios help.....?? u using zen's gear ratios? 19th April 2006
S@~+#0$# In the BMWs, this antenna is used for GPS, it also doubles as a find spoiler. Like I have mentioned it is non-functional and cost me Rs.450. 17th April 2006
prince85 Sorry for my ignorance, but is it called a GPS antenna?? coz i thought it is a Fin Spoiler. Anyways, great car bro. 16th April 2006
revtech nice car much did the GPS antenna cost you ?? 11th April 2006
S@~+#0$# CK, after upsizing to 14 handling has improved bigtime, mileage almost the same 7th April 2006
