    operation done

    finally my linea is out of the hospital,

    the treatment was well done along with the insurance and stuff.

    but the finish on the bonnet is still rough, the SA asked me to come back for a rubbing and polishing ( which was actually supposed to get completed by now)

    but i was in a hurry so i rushed outside after paying the bill.

    the shine is present on the fender, A pillar and the ORVM cap.

    i dont have time untill july 25th to get the polishing done on the bonnet so still gotta wait.

    i've got the rubbing done and my linea is all shines everywhere.....


    another surprise is that i upgraded my tyres and rims to 16"

    the tyre is 205/55 R 16. the same size we get in T-jet but the make is yokohama A-driveR1

    the whole setup costed 52k including the spacers(excentric hubs), balancing and alignment. but only a set of 4.

    recently one of my rim got bent. it was in tirupathi byepass road which is right now undergoing repairs as a result of the rains.


    as the air is not leaking out of the tyre, i've ordered one more of the same design and am planning to use the bent rim as my spare wheel.

    my linea with 16" rims.

    well i wasn't able to find 98 pcd. so i got 100 pcd and installed spacers( excentric hub rings).

    i got the rings near lalbagh( bangalore). that guy has rings of all sizes already made, so got them readily for a price of 500 rs each.


    i have touched 185kmph with the new alloys. the ride was very confident. i dint find any wobbling and vibrations in the steering column.

    but the fuel efficiency has been effected a bit. i havent got more than 20kmpl till now will the new alloys.

    the tyres are yokohama a-drive R1.
    205/55 R 16 and W rated. there is no sound from the tyres . but i would prefer S-drives for such a car.
