Nice car.. For a start, bigger wheels, projectors (or smoked) headlamps and the aftermarket tail lamps will be it look real good. Also a good CAI and a good FFE.

I think you can get a port & polish + throttle body enlargement done. Leela Krishnan can do it probably if you can send it to Coimbatore. But the charges would slightly be on the higher side but you'll be happy with the results.

Thanks Karthik. I am not too much of a fan of aftermarket headlamps unless they are of excellent quality.

I am thinking of stuff similar do what you have reccomended, but getting much more done in addition to this.

Will update when I start...by the way I am running 15" wheels, don't want to go bigger than that !!





Cheers

Ricky baba, if you put on a cam and an adjustable pulley, your low-end is likely to suffer, especially on a Swift.

Yup, the alloys were changed to 15" sometime back. And yes, not interested in any cosmetic jobs, but the engine has to drive like no other !!
