Cars are man 's toy . careful when you play with them!

Hope that part is 800 here . it comes without primer coat too.

Hey Blackbeauty i was happy to see this thread first but sad to know about the incident. The deal seems slightly expensive but you have got a good car , thats the important thing. Also does the car has K&N filters? Any updates now about the repairs?

@ AMG does your car has leveling motor for the headlamp?( Sorry forgot the correct technical term used to describe it). If not then 3k is a pure rip-off , headlamp assembly for my Safari costs only 4k with that leveling motor!

I don't think so. There's only a sticker. My car has two of them. :biggrin:

Yes, That's called a headlamp leveling device.

Maybe by tomorrow evening I'll get her back.
Does the Type III headlamps come with and without levelling motor??
BTW, I noticed after the accident that it was having a 100/90 lamps. But didnt notice any relays. There must be a relay because my switches are still working.. Still, the lights were not good at all..

@Dhaya: Like 350Z said, its just K&N stickers.. I have it in my bike also..:lol!:

Your case is similar as of mine; I installed Type-3 lamps on Type-2 model. The Type-3 comes with leveling motor but make sure to get this job done from a reputed workshop because it takes a little effort to get the new lamps fixed on earlier model.

The car looks very very beautiful after getting the 'new' look.[clap] Nice Suzuki badge too. Hope you can get the Type 3 tail lamps soon. Just curious, but you seriously don't use AC in Bangalore? I must admit Bangalore is rather an AC - city itself, but around the whenever I turn off the AC and I put down my window, After a couple of minutes, I start feeling uncomfy and put the AC again. Is it easy to manage with windows rolled down?

Oops.. Didnt I mention this? The car is in my native, here in Kerala.
Here its hotter than Bangalore during summer. In summer, its horrible even with AC on. Right now, its raining here. So wont feel that much heat.
Maybe the AC will be installed during my friend's next visit.

Oh, Ok. So the car essentially belongs now to you or your friend?

Thanks 350Z.
Any other alternatives to Type 3 tail lamp other than MGA? MGA is quoting 1300 a pair. Should get something of decent quality. Have seen many tail lamps which has faded out.
What about Lumax?
