I am sorry to say this.. the Black is not doing any good On the Beautiful Red that you have, try the off White roof and a little dash of off white on the alloy rims....

Do that and then tell me, it will be Rocking...

Just get that combo photo-shopped by our fantastic guys on this forum, i am sure they will help u.

Not sure from where you can source the honeycomb grille. It may be possible if you have some connections in SE Asia, or the markets where the GTI/GLI versions are sold.

@Sledge - I havent seen any yet but am sure I will see one very soon since I have seen few Polo's with bodykits here and the Pete'd Vento (pics already shared in some other thread).

As for the mesh grills and bodykit, you can have them custom made. That's what I did for my Swift. For the mesh grill, you can check out the net. I have seen many sites offering custom mesh grills.

@naveen: those lights look killer i think you have tempted half the forum to go in for those. i would love to have those on mine as well and since the pics were for a white car they have tempted me even more. too bad i had a very bad accident and my car is away for almost a month for repairs (will probably write a thread with detailed pictures)

in the meanwhile i came across this wonderful looking Vento modded by Petes i dont know if these pics have been shared on this forum but nonetheless here goes

Modifications include
Pete’s Tuning Box
Bilstein B14 height adjustable suspension
Tarox Front and Rear rotor + pads ( Includes rear conversion to Rotors)
Stanley custom leather seating
17” Forged Wheels
~130bhp of power

@miharbe - Happy to help everyone.

Yes, this is Pete'd Vento that I was talking about. Looks awesome.

@ pavan kadam: I'm not crazy about off-white accents. I like this red+black look

@ cityvic: The smoked front on the Honda looks alright, but the rear of the i20 HOT! Who do you think would do the smoking? Do you know how they do it? Is it like a film that's applied on the inside or something?

@ miharbe: That is a great looking Vento. I had seen its pics a long time ago on the Pete's website, and that is when the seeds of modding my car were sown. I love the low stance of Pete's car, but I wouldn't dare do the same, for fear of tearing my tires on our roads. The black Vento is running on 17's if I'm not wrong. It looks pretty but to live with 17's on a daily basis would be a hassle for me

Somehow, I feel that HL and TL smoking works best on black cars. On red/lighter colors, they give an old look.

@Sledge, the below mesh was done in EKM. If required, I can get you the details, and contact info.

Forget Sledge, you got me tempted. Only problem is that I would have to buy a vento first.
How much do these projector headlamps cost approx?

@mdsaab - The projectors will come around 15k.

@Speed Demon - Yes, that's the same i20. It's been featured in other threads too.
Well, here's one for your waggie
