I am sure you can buy them and get them fitted. There is no big engineering feat required. Now those types of flush fuel lids are already in vogue here in bikes. It takes hardly much to give those a metallic chrome finish/polish and modify them so that they can be held by a remotely operated lock. search and you will find them.

By the way why does that 2-door swift looks like a regular 4-door version minus the outer door grip/latch? I mean 2-doors have actually 2-door openings. This one definitely does not look like one?! :-/

And clear lens?!! haa haa haaaa... that's Maruti's next "New Swift" version... haven't you seen how it works for all maruti models?

Hi,

You should be able to buy these in most accessory shops. There are two types available. One is a sticker type(Rs500 approx) which fits on your original lid and gives you the look and the other is the lid itself. We keep the first type.

But these all are made of genuine alloy... no stickers/polish!

Are you sure that we get lids of original Alloy made here???
