    @autofreak, how the heck i missed your thread for so long? Anyways, very nice write up mate! Your tigress looks very royal in its habitat!! I noticed k&n's sticker on your boot lid. Are you using k&n for your 90hp? If yes, then conical one?
    PS : All clicks of your Tigress are just fabulous!!! What cam are you using?

    Thanks a lot for the kind words :)

    Even i usually avoid crowded parking lots where ever I go. Even at the Beach I had parked on a cross road,
    parallel to the road with cars one behind the other! Someone still managed to gift a ding!

    Am thinking of putting off the mending process for the moment and keep it for the 15K service.
    Will check out possibility with paintless dent removal though. @DRIV3R told me that they do it at My TVS. Will check out over the weekend

    Its only the sticker mate! The car is on stock filter only.
    Glad you liked the pics. The pics on the opening post of this thread were clicked with my friend & TFIan @DRIV3R's Canon 550D.
    The other pics are from my iPhone :)

    Hope it wasn't too boring! I'm at Anna Nagar

    Two new singers have joined the party!

    Got the front speakers replaced with 6.5 inch JBL components today.

    Now they balance the soundstage up front pretty well with the Morel 6x9 in the rear. All the while the rear speakers would dominate so much that the front weren't even heard!

    It feels more complete now :)

    Sad to see the dent on your ride. Looks like someone/thing heavy might have fallen/lean on the door !!

    Enjoying your new singing components?

    Yes! The speakers are JBL GTO649C.
    I haven't taken the car out since the install. From the few minutes of listening last night, I liked the thump I'm getting from the front :)

    This is the first time I got component speakers installed on any car. I like the high frequency output from the tweeters quite a lot! A lot of songs I ve always been listening to now sound so nice, the 80s and 90s songs especially!

    When the door pads were removed for speaker install, I tried pushing out the dents. The larger one managed to pop out almost 90 percent! The smaller one under the sticker didn't budge though.

    Got a long drive to home town tomorrow. Can't wait to experience the speakers. Getting the playlist built!

    Thanks a lot Mohankv! :)

    The car with gun metal rims belong to @DRIV3R. Its been painted in gun metal grey. Not power coating.
    It was done at a shop in Villivakam, Chennai. Costed around 1K a wheel. But he wasnt too happy with the finish.

    A few details can be found on this page.
