Following the introduction of the owner the presenter asks him when did he get the vehicle and what was the previous setup.
The owner then replies that before switching to this 26 inch configuration he also had 22 inch alloy wheels all-around the corners on his Scorpio Classic which he bought 2 and a half months ago. However he was quickly bored with that setup and changed it to this configuration just after driving it for 300 kms. The presenter than jokes that will the owner get the 28 inch alloys next to which the owner replies that if they could but they’ll see what happens in the future. Following this they start talking about the unique 4747 registration number which the owner tells that it costed him Rs 65,000 to get this number for his car.
Following this the presenter then tells that the bulbs in the headlights have also been changed which the owner then verifies. The owner tells that all the halogen bulbs in the headlights and fog lamps have been switched to LED bulbs of 120 Watts and also tells the response is quite amazing. He adds that the setup is so bright that he does not even uses the front headlight instead he uses the fog lamps and LED DRLs to navigate in the dark.
Moving on in the video the presenter then shows around the car and adds that the vehicle has been modified subtly and looks clean. He then finally shows the alloy wheels up close and asks the owner what modifications he had to do in order to fit the wheels to which he replies that they had to alter the inner fenders and suspension to avoid and rubbing of these wheels. The presenter then asks that what was the cost of this setup to which the owner reveals that he paid Rs 3.2 lakh for the entire setup.
