    raj,
    Yes,it is surrounded.
    Also the mesh grill kind beside the fog lamps is also a mod ;) grill is pvc sticker ordered from ebay,now why pvc sticker because i want that particvular shape and then planned to surround it with the chrome strip to get an rich look.... !!!
    Also the chrome strip is surrounded above the headlight border on the bonnet.

    Brake Pads changed after 38000 Kms

    Snaps for my old brake pads... Still it was very firm with the brakes, loved each cornering and deacceleration when brakes were applied.

    you are absolutely right its very hard to maintain such costly items on the exterior body,recently my metal scorpion(INR 299 waited for long after done with ebay order) on the rear glass was stolen ... :(

    After reading from Ravi Sir's post about tire burst og Goodyear GT3 after nearing 50K Kms,i was also bit worried about my tires completed 42K Kms and it was there on sunday night while returning from Hyd after crosing Hyd on NH-9 the bad patch before zaheerabad gifted the below tire :D thank god i was not @ high speed and was doing @60-70Kmph.
    Need to drive the tire in that condition to an nearby puncture shop.All Safe. :)
    its really hard to survive now as i'm not having any spare tire and need to purchase atleast one tire as spare.

    @ Ganges, Thats a scary picture! Good to know that you were at maneagable speeds. Btw, did you check the condition of alloys in detail after such a drive?

    alloy is in good condition,but still i need to check with the wheel alignment shop for any alloy out or bent.
    that become too scary after driving half a KM of the burst to nearby punture shop.

    Scary man, I have to seriously consider getting new tyres now. Did 40K on mine and 2 of the tyres went kinda bald on one side due to allignment issues. The baldness is not deep by any means but still not worth the risk IMO.
