Vivek I was once talking to a local guy here who was telling me how he had to drive his car all the way to Mumbai as most of the guys here who say they do mods are mainly "garage types" and can not be relied with. I think for internal modifications your best bet is either bangalore or mumbai.

External mod accessories and fitments though is done by most of the big accessory shops. Pitstop on raj bhavan road, stunnerz on minister road can all be given a shot.

Vivek
You can:
  1. Fit the Adventure crash guard along with the oval fog lamps. Costs Rs. 7000/- I think.
  2. Fit Adventure's foot board. Looks very neat.
  3. Fit a roof carrier to enhance the outdoor/sporty effect. You can order it from Tata authorised dealer. An aerodynamic, box type carrier is also available for Marina. Saw it in Tata Genuine Accessories catalogue.
  4. Replace the bumpers with unpainted, black ones, a la the Adventure.
  5. Try fitting the wheel arches from Indica. Marina's sporty version (called Advent, never launched) had them.
Enjoy the driving!
Cheers!
