Whatever you do don't raise the suspension. Nice alloys and tires would give it a fresh look. Don't go overboard with stickering. Do up the interiors if it's looking bad, even if its good nice seat covers and carpets would freshen up the interiors.

Get your car groomed by an authorised outlets of 3M or even a good authorised service centre, where-in the complete interiors, exteriors, boot and engine bay is cleaned, vacuumed & polished.

For simple mod's try dropping in a OE K&N Filter, Iridium Sparks Plugs with a good suppressor cable kit and a free flow exhaust for starters. Of course after having the car serviced & tuned.

Hope this helps. Enzoi & drive safe

Cheers,
Sats

There was one article in Bsmotoring a long time back where they had a maruti 800 modded for performance under 1lakh.

THe other cars were a maruti gypsy and a maruti zen
