Hi Guys,

Atlast i have taken the Pics of Swift after 15 days of delivery. Major release in the project i support..managed to keeep me busy......and ofcourse laziness contrbuted for the delay as well...

Being a first time driver, i have managed to be very cautious ..until now...Touchwoood...I guess first timers can very go for Swift DDI, it is cool. I am just falling in love with it. My daughter is starting to cry, when we reach back home....he just wanted to go around the city in the car.

I have done just 400+KMs till date. Yet to test on her on long drives...Probably may do it today.

I am hearing the rattling noise from the hatch door. I guess there aer various ways suggested to fix it. May be i shall do it along with Audio installation.

I had fabric seat covers for Rs 1800 and Body side moulding fiitted for Rs 950 fitted. I had to go for body side moulding after seeing a pinhead slam his door on my beauty. wanted to kill him..

The following accessories needs to be fitted..(but confusion continues)
1. Sunfilm (LLumar American or Garware) ..still thinking if i need to go for front sunfilm -
Following are the Llumar prices from Saandhya Car Accessor shop in Alwarpet. He is the disty for llumar.

Silver (Dyed) Black SR - Rs.2000) OR PLatinum Steel -50% (Rs. 4200)
Front Windscreen - Air 75 - Rs. 6000

2. Front Arm REst
3. Car Audio
For Audio, i am intending to go for Pioneer DEH5000UB. Decide on the three options JBL, Hertz and Illusion and decide. I shall be going for components in FRont and Co-Ax in REar. not opting for amp / sub for now.
4. REar Parking Sensors (4 sensors in Rear - Red Soul) -Rs. 2800
5. Underbody Coating

I am intending to leave the car in MSM (MAruti Own Service Center in Guindy) for Underbody coating.

as you guys already know me....i shall confuse myself more and come back to you with more questions

until then...happy driving...cheers

Prasanna KV

2. JBL Compo 607c - front (On Door)
3. JBL Compo 607c - REar (On Door)
4. JBL 937- Rear

Underbody Coating :
5 Yrs Warranty :- Rs. 2200

I am not sure, if i can continue on the same thread on accessories.

1.) I have done 3M underbody coating with 5Yr Warranty in MAruti MSM for Rs. 2472.

2.) Have done 3M Internal Panel Protection for 5 Yr from Sri Balajee Agencies, A distributorof 3M for Rs. 1700/-

3.) Again have gone with 3M RE35 Sunfilm for sides + rear for Rs. 3200.

I am happy Sunfilm, but little skeptical about Internal Panel Protection.

I am going along with Nitrous for ICE installation, tomorrow. Shall Post Pics once done.

Cheers
