RCA's being installed - the only part which looked fake to me - the kicker RCA's were very puny. I'd seen better looking MX RCA's

I like that cost-effective damping. For the cost, the effect must be terrific!

Yup it does the job really well. If it's in the boot then there is no issue. The problem with having it in the doors is water entering. Being cloth type material it will absorb water in the rain and may lead to a foul smell and rust.

Another good option I have seen installers use is closed cell foam. Inexpensive and needs to be glued onto the panel.

at the horn install.
Relocate the horns to a higher location IMMEDIATELY.
I'm sure you don't want your money to go down the drain.

the prices:
progrip steering wheel cover : 550
horns : 1350 + installation(plus switch in dash) = 1900 ( i think thats a bit high)
damping in front + rear MDF plank for rear door = 2.5k
sub = 6.5k , demo piece, discount @ 40% = 3.9k
amp, not sure of the prices, ~4k
got the total amp + sub + box + wiring+ labour quote at 11.8k

Congrats, greenhorn! Good stuff there! So how does it all sound now?

I run the same horns. Had a pair in my old Palio. (They went with the Palio.) I got another pair for the Swift. 2-wheelers and Autos will give you right of way. I got both sets installed from the same place.

Any pics of the other install?

Oho? So there was another install? A Swift huh? I actually meant a new Ikon that came from TVM, that got an install done the same day as yours. I thought you folks knew each other.
