Hah, and you thought there was a use for the door trims and the rubber beadings.

The door trims will rattle so much, you'd want to take them out anyway, a month down the line. The rubber beadings don't really offer any insulation, especially not from water. And now since they can't control the flood situation anywhere, it is beyond MSILs control. They don't do much for aesthetics either, since they look a couple of years old the day you buy the car.

And what does the dashboard do again?

Porty, they did the plastic trim stripping from 2006 onwards. My 2005 car has plastic trims in the boot on the C-pillar.

From 2006 models onwards, this was replaced with carpet same as the floor.

I believe you mean the lower half of C pillar, the top was still body, Only the VX, if at all, had the complete plastic trim all over

Making Maruti 800 and Omni Euro IV compliant is not such a difficult thing. All they have to do is put the more powerful Alto engine under the hood of Maruti 800 and Omni and then have a much bigger catalyst. Main problem with increasing the catalyst treatment of exhaust gas is the loss in engine power which can be offset by the more powerful engine.

1) Seats. They can put in seats that come with fixed head restraints.
2) Door pads and fabrics.
3) Steering wheel from earlier M800.
4) Switchgear from earlier M800. Even after 1 lakh kms., our Maruti 800 switchgear works fantastically, it basically does the job.
5) Roof moulding. Remember what G1HC ( OHC ) came with ? Roof lining similar to that.


I know these will not be of much contribution but it can help a bit.

I have not seen water entering into cabin from doors or windshield. It does the job without error here.
Yes they can rework the entire dashboard and put in more simple stuff with straight lines.
