    Pics of Modified cars in INDIA

    Here is a video of a Tata Harrier with a contrast roof (dual tone scheme) and some aftermarket decals on it. The grille has also got a splash of colour and the standard alloy wheels have black accents. What do you guys think of this mod job?

    This Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, in all honestly looks like a mix of the Audi Q8, Bentley Betayga, and VW Touareg. In my opinion, the overall boxy shape doesn't lend itself well to a Coupe look, that's not to say it looks bad, it's just not my cup of tea. My opinion might just change if I ever get to see it in person.

    Tyre Guide

    http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp?ttid=85 I thought this was interesting for those who run tires down the the tread limits: Stopping a Car Even though the speed to begin braking the 3,400-pound BMW sedan was 20 mph higher than the 50-0 mph braking tests we conduct at The Tire Rack, the braking forces developed by the new tires felt reminiscent of full tread depth tires weve experienced on our home track. The car pitched forward as the brakes were applied, quickly took a set and slowed the car with authority. After repeated runs we learned that the average stopping distance for the new tires from 70 mph was 195.2-feet in 3.7-seconds. Testing tires with the 2/32-inch minimum legal tread depth taught us the probable origin of the drivers accident report statement, "I hit the brakes hard, but nothing happened." There was a perceptible delay while waiting for the braking forces to grow after initiating the stop. Looking at the graphs recorded by the DriftBox confirmed this discomforting situation when we realized we were still traveling at about 55 mph on the tires with 2/32-inch of remaining tread depth when we reached the same distance it took the new tires to bring the BMW to a complete stop! This time the repeated runs taught us that the average stopping distance for the still legal 2/32-inch deep treaded tires from 70 mph had almost doubled to 378.8-feet and took 5.9 agonizing seconds to accomplish. We had the same car and the same brakes, but the tires with minimum legal tread depths werent able to generate enough traction on the wet road to bring us to a quicker stop.
