Yes, all of us bhpians can, but do you think all the mechanics at Maruti would be so careful, i am not saying such things will happen, i just said be careful, anything is possible at MSIL, Tata, MnM dealerships

One dealer sells Infrared Energised Fan and claims power boost by around 10bhp, so there.

Arnt all the mechanics supposed to be trained people? They are engineers arnt they? Most of such probs are due to carelessness...

But anyways, this is India and anything can happen...be it MSIL, Tata or any other company.

Thanks guys! Yes the DDiS badge gas been retained.

Busa the WRC spoiler is the type KArthik247 had on his pimp swift right? What does it cost.. and how about the regular swift spoiler?

Also I heard that your pandu's even fine for muffler tips?

Agreed, even Im used to only tanking Petrol. For this reason Iv still retained the "DIESEL" sticker on the fuel hatch (even though its ugly). There is also a "Diesel Only" sticker in the rear quarter glass hatch of the passengers side.

Other thing is I would be refuelling 90% of the time at the same Gas Station as we have an account there. Attendants will become familiar in no time.

Yup, the one Karthik has on his Swift. it costs around 3000 bucks i think. Regular Swift Spoiler is too sedate for your car(I am gonna put the regular one though)

I was not aware of that, as long as the car doesnot make noise it should not be a issue.

The VDi looks cool without the VDi at the back. So, what's next ? A diamond stud on the ORVMs ?

souljah...the car looks neat without the badging ! i really think you should get the original spoiler for your car (if at all). please do not go overboard and pimp it too much, and add aftermarket spoilers etc. i am yet to see a spoiler that looks as clean and neat as the original.

hey EL, i still think it would be cheaper for you to tank up in madras rather than drive to his petrol bunk in blr for every fill

Thanks!! Why advertise VDi/Maruti Suzuki unnecessarily ? As 1100D pointed out, those who need to know... will know!

NIP macha spoiler isnt really on my list of things. That money could be put to better use I guess... If I had it!

IV seen many DIY delocking tutorials for cars abroad. Dont know how succesful it would be here due to lack of materials. Also I think its easier on cars that have the keyhole on the handle itself if such a thing exists.

I have only put a bigger 'H' symbol from the Accord/CRV.

Default Another addition to the thread.

This was on my mind for a quite a while.

Sunday morning: The usual car wash and then thought I might as well remove the badges. I was able to remove only one due to time constraint. Probably next week I shall get rid of the 'vxi'.

The last pic shows the items used for removing the badge.
