These two sets of pics just made my day!
Well I already messaged him the link of your post!
His auto enthusiasm and the fact that he worked and is still working with some of the top automotive manufacturers in their design divisions helped a lot to make it this perfect!

I don't think he may go for a roll cage, so fitting it there won't be an option!
Little more work coming on the way will update the thread with related posts after december!

Good to know that, the appreciation from fellow members and enthusiasts helps in doing the best works!

Are you sure on the warranty being intact ? More importantly, does Maruti encourage its dealers fiddling with the car and charging a premium on it ?

Logically the warranty should be intact. Because Maruti's authorized dealer is making the changes. I am not sure Maruti is encouraging such practices or not.

I feel only the lights and the black roof look good. The grille looks tacky.

1.4L for a pimped up VDi! They've crossed the ZDi territory and anyone buying this over a ZDi deserves ZERO sympathy in case of injuries in an accident since they overlooked the safety features for this!

As per the article in Autocar, the dealer has confirmed that warranty would be intact.

The Grill should have been left stock as the silver shade looks shabby... the Audi styled DRLs have been pulled of nicely and the rear smoked lamps too. Bit more hotter alloys shuld have been used .Nice

Wow! What a tidy looking car. Great job! The only complaint is the choice of colour, but that is a personal thing. Thanks for sharing!

Killer rims man! Looks absolutely smashing.

Carried out really well! One amazing mod this. Nice colour, cool alloys and stance too
But if Ihad to nit pick, The rivets on the front skirts are distracting. Also Black / gun metal front grille would have made it a wee bit better.

This is the best looking Honda for me. The alloys, bumpers and overall stance is awesome. I loved the colour too.
