I love Melbourne Red in a vert. Color looks amazing and looks sexy with the top down. The beige interior compliments the color nicely with the mods!

Decided to go with an Alpine Tune:

Opted for 2 maps:
Map 1 - For winter months
98 RON octane stage 1
Servotronics
Top speed limiter removal
Red line increase 8500

Map 2 - For summer months
95 RON octane stage 1
Servotronics
Red line increase 8400

Preparing to load the tune, plugged in the battery tender.


Tune loaded and initial impressions are favorable. Feels a lot smoother through the rev range, a slight increase in power is noticeable. Have not really pushed it properly yet...

Some recent pics...




Next on the cards, a cool little interior upgrade - Sent for custom upholstery.

Interior kitted with a custom set of dash and door trims.

If you scroll back to some of the first interior shots of my car, you will notice the Aluminum trim, signed by Bruno Spengler. Now, while this was special to the many and the previous owners, i felt it made the interior look shoddy. No offence to anyone, but i didn't particularly enjoy that part of the car.

After i had the steering wheel done by AZA, i was on the look out for a used set of trims, any trim as i had the idea to cover it in carbon leather and have the tri-color stitching to match the steering. Few weeks went on, searching locally and at the same time looking at options from abroad when i found a set of CF leather trim locally. A friend in Dubai had a look at them and did the deal.

Got them a few weeks later and was not really happy with the condition so parked them off and started the search for an upholsterer to do the recover and stitching. I didn't have to look very far as a friend i had met when i first moved here advised he can actually do it, himself. Needless to say, the job was done and impeccably so. I still need to take some proper focused shots of the interior, but here are some pics to give you an idea...








And some cool rollers!!
