Thumbs up DC's Swift !!

Hey ...Check out the DC's Swift ...slight modifications include white coloured roof and a balck traga top(guess its removable!)....complete with low profile tyres 205/40 17"ers shod with neat looking white coloured alloys...a lay man would simply mistake it as a Mini !
Taken this one from AsiaWok on the 6th Floor! (Many thanks to the 12x Opitcal Zoom!)

Personally, I dont like Minis. So the modified Swift comes across as very ugly to me.

Hey Deeps,
The Swift is hardly "modified" the only Modification done here is aftermarket alloys and painted/cut the rooftop.

except for the alloys, the car doesn't seem too different- the white top looks kinda out of the place, given the grey base; IMHO....

nice alloys, though- but the ride must have gone for a toss- as it is, the swift's ride is stiff with 185/70 R14's...one thing to be noticed- the wheel well seems to have enough gap left to go even one more size up...

I found the swift to look kinda out of proportion. But somwhow this one seems more right with the big alloys and the roof.

Aaaaah there he goes maaaan!! He just loves to screw up cars dosent he??
The swift is a decent looker by itself. Why make it look like some other car. Goddamn it al he can do is copy cars and other peoples designs. A big thumbs down for DC!!

Can't compare Mini to Swift. Mini is way too cool. Remember "Italian Job"? A real looker from whatever angle.

I would suggest you leave the roof as it is....and if u want to try anythin new... just get some stickering on the sides..... and a lil on the hood.... flames, chequered flags, tribal design anything except the stripes that flow from hood to tail which is as common as mosquitoes in a swamp.
