Default Accessories for new Swift

Hi Guys,
I will be getting my swift anytime this month just wanted to know your opinions on few accessories:
Car Stereo: Pioneer 4800, Pioneer 6' 5" 4 way (260 watts) rear, Pioneer 6'5" 2 way (190 watts) front. Don't wanna install 6'x9' and reduce the boot space (whatever that is). How about installing all four as 3 way speakers?
Tint: v-cool all around (got quotes for around 9K) Just wondering if its worthwhile to put v-cool all around? How about Lumar film?
Seat Covers: Need your advice... Preferablly original leather. With price quotes please.
Child Seat: I'm planning to install one for my toddler. Am I paranoid or does anyone of you have it installed? Where can I find these?

Thanks,
Psyched

I dont think its good enough to spend so much just on Films....Swift's airconditioning is as it is good....Why dont u go for gravare SRC...Its scratchless and comes for around just 700 bugs all around...

Hi,

Contrary to what people may say go for good sun film. Not necessarily Vkool. There are other good films like Llumar, Film Pro, 3M etc in the 2k-5k range depending on the quality you choose.

Real leather will cost approx between 18-24k depending on the brand. Art leather is a goo doption and costs between 4-6k again depends on quality.

A car seat is a must and I would definitely recommend it. I use on in between my Getz and Santro. I use Eddie Bauer Car Seat which is very good. You can get Graco and a couple of other good brands here in Mumbai at most of the malls. Pm me if you want specific address for them. Pl specify where you stay.

Hey Gemballa!
What Xenons have you put? I was planning on putting a set on my swift too. Bi-xenons or uni? and specs for the xenons would be great!
I'm off to Bangkok day after and was wonderin if anyone had any clue as to where I could pick up a set from there. I hear they're cheaper there? and also, by putting xenons does my warranty become void?

Varun.

Hi !

I would like to listen to your car;

Would that be possible ?

I am about to install some sound in my car & I do have a budget of 100/- K for it.
I was working on Audiobahn & Illusion Audio & Alpine.

I have just procured a Swift.

I would like to hear it before I spend the money.
Can you accommodate my needs ?
Please.

I would appreciate it !

Thanks,

BHAGWAN

For Audio, search the Audio threads...would suggest components both front abd back with a sub in the boot to gete the perfect sound.... coaxial speakers (2-3-4-5 ways..) cannot provide the same clarity as components

Hey,

I think you need to as well since you also paid a bomb. Should not cost you more than 20k for 2 tone original Stanley Leather .
