    Hi friends,
    Meet my mighty beauty, my favorite companion on four wheels. She is a 2001 model limited edition siena elx with abs and airbag. The factory fitted beige seat covers are made of genuine leather (still looking awesome even after 15 years). So far covered 81000 kms and still capable of touching 170 kmph with ease. You will really love the stability and road hold of this car. Till late 2003 abs and airbags were a distant dream for any car in India except Mercedes.
    The turbo charged engine is awesome after crossing 1500 rpm...
    The factory fitted Bose woofers and alpine stereo works like a charm.
    Now I'm abroad and I'm planning for a complete overhaul of my car including a paint job scheduled for this November after reaching home. It's a bit hard to source the parts, though it's available. I'm from trivandrum, Kerala.
    I'm inviting your valuable responses for the same. The owners of legendary Siena's are requested to help me out to restore my beauty as new as possible.
    And Feel free to ask anything related to siena TDI....
    Thank you....

    Thanks a lot friends......
    I'm eager to get back home and start working on her. Re-test .. Restoration... Insurance..... This November is going to be hectic..
    What about the current front design, do you have any particular color suggestion?? Inputs are welcomed..... I'm planning to keep the current design as it will not hurt the originality much. New rubber and alloys are also on the list.....

    There is another restoration you could check meanwhile of user @Sagz. And another worth looking at for a thorough job would be mod. @Italia-Linea's GTX.
