Hi All,

Here is a software Engineer from Chennai. I cannot call myself an Auto Guru or something close to that but people around know me as an automobile afficionado. To the gurus, I'm just some one above an average car user.

I'm 27 right now and I got my DL at the age of 19. I learnt driving in my good old Maruti 1000. We had the Maruti 1000 from 1998 to 2006. In 2006 we bought a used WagonR which I sold in 2009 for a new i10 Kappa.

Currently, I own a 2009 Hyundai i10 Kappa, 2004 Maruti 800 and a 2007 Bajaj Pulsar 180 UG3.

Some subtle upgrades on my rides:

i10 Kappa:

- Hyundai OE Alloys
- Michelin XM1+ 175/70 R13
- Philips Xtreme Power 60/55W H4 lamps
- Currently running on Castrol EDGE fully synthetic oil

Pulsar 180 UG3:

- Changed both Front and Rear tyre to Tubeless
- Avenger Stator coil and Philips Xtreme Power 60/55W

M800:

- Philips Xtreme Power 60/55W H4 lamps
- MRF ZVTS 145/80 R12 - Technically wrong but practically useful [;)]
- Pioneer HU with 4" Pioneer speakers front and Rear


My interests apart from Autos is on Travel and Photography. I have learnt a lot and still learning photography techniques and recently gradudated to a DSLR.

My photography equipment list includes Fujifilm F70 EXR, Fujifilm HS10 and the Olympus E420 DSLR.

I stumbled upon TAI in Google and Surprised by the amount of useful content here. I'm hoping to learn and share the knowledge in the world of automobiles and beyond [:)]

I'm hoping to have a enjoyable journey here.

Some pics of my rides:

Hello Parameshwaran,

Welcome to The Automotive India. I am not a big fan of i10 but honestly, yours is the best i have ever come across. It looks neat and really cool in that color. Just get rid of those stickers(No offence meant).
Enjoy your stay aboard.

Cheers,
Akash

Welcome to TAI.

Nice car and right amount of changes done.

I need your take on following things, ofcourse in appropriate threads.

1. Synthetic oil -- Advantages to your i10
2. Alloys
3. Philips xtreme power.
