    Exclamation Vitz 2005 (new shape) Tuning

    Hi Pakwheelers. I went to a mechanic on Jamsheed Road for tuning my Vitz. I bought Iridium tipped spark plugs for Rs 800 each. Is that a reasonable price?
    Secondly, he took Rs 250 for tuning. He did nothing except changind the spark plugs. I asked him about the tuning and he said dat this is a modern car and doesnt need tuning. Was he right?
