    @ fiat yamaha..
    thanx for the compliments...
    took a pic of the front and the rear (with lights on) in the afternoon...was just a bit cloudy though the sun was out.
    didnt have anybody around to help push the brake pedal so u'll have to make do with the indicators and the tail lamps.
    hope these help.

    Amazing thread... I have been hooked onto it for quite some time now. Got to know from Pushkar that you have abandoned your Bullet for the Punto!! :)

    Epcenter,

    One of our members had enquired why you had not darkened your headlights?

    This is my personal opinion. I am against the idea of modification such as darkening the headlights and taillights as they are all part of functional critical components that are required for self, oncoming and following traffic. Road manners, is respecting the rights and responsibilities of all road users. Even the most sporting OE cars dont do such modifications

    I may be in isolation with the bubbling youngsters when such reccomendations are done but these are my observations over 27 yrs of driving.!! . I hope not to have hurt anybodys sentiments or joy

    pushkar is an old woman now. but then he is also my friend. but that doesnt mean you believe whatever he says. just ask him what my 500 does usually and you'll know that i still love that motorcycle and just after reading this post i rode her extra hard :D. nothing beats the thump.
    and thanks for all these compliments. i am just trying to make the car a bit better than what it actually is which is excellent. :D
    have fun driving the car. and dont forget to wear the seatbelt.

    abdul,
    first of all kudos to your driving experience. i'm sure with all the miles you've clocked up, you'll sure have a mindset of your own regarding a lot of things.
    about smoking out the lights, i had in mind exactly what you put in words and it was tested out. the lights are beautifully visible at quite a safe distance which has been verified by a lot of friends and people who just stop to ask what has been done to them and how they light up even though they are blackened out.
    need to point out just one thing. no matter what i do to the car, i am not forgetting my road manners. i've learnt them the hard way and i value them more than most of the things around.
    everything else written in your post applies to wannabe drift stars who dont know rats about where the steering is and what the tires do.(i meet a couple of guys regularly on the way to my factory which is an 86 km one way commute).
    about hurting sentiments, that can be done to a totally different breed of people.
    so lets ride safe and always wear a seatbelt.
    we need to meet soon.:D
