Well I guess they happily did that because that would be less damaging to them then having you standing around & eating their brains out

Underbody coating/Anti-corrosion is Rs.4000 with a lifetime warranty again from Dupont.

Thats a total of 7800/- (I can bargain a little).

In the outside market it would cost me around 5500/- for the entire job but then bills, warranties and reliability issues are bound to pop up.
What do you guys think ?

Regarding rims on the swift I know 15" wouldnt do justice. In fact 16" looks just about right and often I feel even that looks small! In my case 16" might be impractical thanks to the condition of Bangalore roads. I would have to crawl 24/7 in fear of damaging tyres.

White Alloys with the standard factory white swift seems to be a mistmatch. The bodycolour would be dull white and alloys brilliant white. I feel its not uniform. This white+whtie combo was my original plan... now planning on hyper black instead.

True, thats why I have dropped the idea of painting ORVM/handles for the moment.

Dude, there's no accounting for taste sometimes. Half the members here actually OWN half the cars on the Weird & Whacky thread.

Go and fetch the showroom brochure. Read my post again to find out whether I've spelled it as BUM or BEAM !!!

Beam Blue is one of the top sellers in the metallic category in Kerala.

Honestly, only pay for the
1. extended warranty (if you're not going to void it)
2. Art Leather seats - very good
3. the mudflaps, tints and mats I got were really good but I got him to give it to me free.
4. Teflon and Ps ofcourse
