please suggest a budget for each of these. there are brands and products available to suit different budgets. In most cases you get what you pay for.

of all that you have mentioned ...i feel the music system and the seat covers are the ones that you require ...i dont have much info about music systems ...but about seat covers u get anything from 1.5k to 25k genuine leather ones ...


bumper protectors are also not required ..they dont help in any way
about the parcel tray ..u can go for the ones that come in the high end ...
swifts ...about the reverse sensor ..thats not required in a small car


instead you can invest on upgrading your headlites to 100/90 w with relays ..

also you can spend on a MGA car security system ..


But the most important thing that you shoudnt forget is the 3rd and 4th year extended warranty

1. Stereo and speakers are a must have. You can get a decent setup for about 10,000-15,000. (2 pairs of Co-axial speakers for the four doors and a Sony or Pioneer Head Unit) For more details check the In Car Entertainment section.
2. I suggest you do not get the black moulding. I feel it does not serve any purpose and spoils the clean look of the Swift.
3. You can but the parcel tray from MGA shop for about Rs 1,000. (I feel it is overpriced)
4. The Swift comes with good durable seat covers. You can get them cleaned every time your car is serviced.
5. Mobile charger. I don't know much about this. I want to get one myself. Give me the details if you get one.
6. Reverse sensors are pretty useful. Get them if you find rear visibility bad as is the case with the Swift. (Helps you avoid scratches)
7. Llumar, vCool.
8. How about a snazzy set of alloys??

Finally my 2 week old Red VXi car is now FULLY LOADED!!!

Following is the list of accessories i bought.... might help some of the guys.
I bought these things in Hyderabad, all the electronics items of them with warranty...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Accessory Type Cost Comments
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Security System MGA (Nippo) 4290 From Saboo (Car Dealer)
Taflon Coating 2 year package 3000 From Saboo (Car Dealer)
Body Cover 550
Seat Cover 1000
Seat Cushioning 160 Needed som Hight!!
Mobile Charger Nokia 120
Sun Control Film 900
Door and Bonet Bidding 400
Parcel Tray 650
Perfume Bottle 300
Sony System 250S, CD/MP3 player 7600 2 year warranty
Sony Sterio (Front) 170 watts 1600 1 year warranty
Sony Sterio (Rear) 220 watts 1800 1 year warranty
Reverse Sensors P2: (beep and digits) 2250 1 year warranty
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total 24620
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Some more points:
1. I felt that the seat hight is too low and needed to increase it by putting cushioning below
the seat covers for both the front seats. Now its really nice. Can see the road better
2. Taflon Coating: quite a controversial subject. But i got the payoff immediately. Somehow
while i had parked the car, the drainage water fell on it.. thanks to taflon... it did not
damage the car. Also, the dealer immediately applied one more coat, and did some
brush-up free. I think its worth it. Its a 2 year package of 6-7 coats at each servicing.
3. Parcel Tray... strange that Maruti does not give it with VXi... not sure why???
4. Sony.... I am really happy with the system and speakers... great sound... no noise.
5. Reverse Sensor.... for 2250 (original cost 2600)... its value for money, especially for a new
driver like me. Added comfort level.
