  1. What all did you do today?

    Today completed the job. Gave the connections, as soon as the engine starts DRLs will light up and when parking lights are turned-on, the DRLs will turn off
  2. What all did you do today?

    I have 2014 Honda Amaze idtec and not fitted with DRLs. Philips make DRLs aren’t available in India so I got them from an acquaintance in USA. With the electrical diagram mentioned in the manual could connect right hand side DRL strip. The manual missed to mention that the engine needs to be started when testing the LED lights. Later I figured it out. Lately very busy so I would connect the left side too. one doubt I have is the DRL controller gets too hot. Is this normal?
  3. All new 2017 Tata Nexon Launched @ 5.85 Lakhs

    Great pictures and the ride, does stands out. I had yellow WagoR and it was damn popular among kids. If the custom job, on the Nexon, is good, only then it’s worth it.
  4. The Gadgets and Gizmos thread!

    I got this Philips 4 LED DRL pair from overseas and in few days I would install this assembly on my Amaze 2013 idtec. Would post the results in few days.
  5. Security Camera

    @Sachtech that post is from 2015 and not recent
  6. Is M7 on the way to reality ?

    6litre, V-12 is way too big engine. Even the biggest of the SUVs have less than 4litres engine. RR phantom stands in comparison
  7. Buying New BMW.

    @jain.harsh1089 you already owned a BMW car so you know better. New BMW X1 looks great unlike its yesteryear sibling. I would only like to ask if any of the new BMW has any hybrid feature?
  8. I agree! The ultimate goal is to have zero emission that could only be possible if the outcome is water. There is no point removing sulphur from fuel to an extent where cost to achieve benefit is more than the benefit itself. Moreover little sulphur is required to aid the formation of sulphuric acid so that engine sleeve can corrode to retain the lubricating oil.
  9. Current Vehicle Recalls

    These flanges may be developing some sort of cracks due to undue hardness.
  10. X3 Owner - Hello, folks!

    @suresh.david welcome!aboard. There is no club as such for pre-owned B&W X 3 for that matter any segment of car. We discuss as per topics mentioned in the home page.
  11. Hi From Car Camera India

    I myself, few days back, purchased Garmin T55, dashcam.
  12. First Tesla has to launch their cars in India, don’t know when will that happen ! Tesla or VW won’t be able to sell so many cars as people will have their own doubts with regard to charging stations etc as EVs aren’t hybrids. Quality car maker’s batteries would be reliable. Over and above cost of the car would be crucial for their success.
  13. Yesterday in Homedepot(Martinez), California, where I was buying a cordless impact wrench and cordless hammer drill, happen to meet a Tesla sale executive and he was briefing me on Tesla model S. He told me that the battery pack for the car costs 6000${4 lakhs} but comes with a conditional warranty of 25years. Actually it’s fair deal.
  14. @Bhuvan Anejawelcome back after a gap of one year. The Amsoil May not be serious of 40,000km guarantee on its oil. No matter what one does the oil needs to be renewed after a year as it becomes breeding ground for microbes. The additives gets neutralised after 10,000km. 40,000km is a unrealistic figure
