Hi Ashkait,

Here comes another one! It looks like Aarush sir is experimenting with 2-tone shades very seriously. First the Laura and now this Swift. I really love the headlamps of this car right from the time I saw it's teaser on FB page of Autopsyche. Black and Red has been a deadly combo of colors.

A decent attempt in my view. Thanks for sharing.

AD

OT: I was keeping an eye on the release of this car's pics on the FB page.

Just logged in to post the Swift in Advan livery, looks like you beat me to it Ashkait

The one thing I don't like, is to see that this is an Lxi/Ldi model which is what it looks like from the indicator-lacking ORVMs and the missing fog light on the rear bumper. Was this made for a company? In which case this sets a bad example for kids out there who are still under the mindset that it is better to save up for modifications on a new car by opting out of buying a variant with safety features

Gorgeous looking Swift !! Loved the color scheme and the lips, spoilers...basically everything.

One last request - Can someone go and rip off those Yokohama decals from everywhere where it is pasted, unless Yokohama has paid a bomb for modifying the car and advertising their brand. It simply takes away all the charm of a tastefully modified car.

I had a doubt regarding the vehicles twin pipe exhaust system, if this vehicle if an LDi variant with a turbo diesal, what is the point of having a modified exhaust? Does it to contribute to any improvement other than a cosmetic appeal ?

The owner of this car is a stickler for clean cars I guess, works in my company. He used to own a Ford Ikon and the car always was sparkling clean and this civic is no different.

This civic is parked here in office as i type this and is spotless.

Simply amazing looking Swift here! this is how a Swift has to look !

But doesnt the car look like it is stooping forward a little too much? However, the gaps above the wheels seem to be consistent only..!

SS80's should be left alone, unless you're Chip Foose. Keeping a gleaming, stock exterior, one can always go about perfecting the stance with some appropriate wheels, tires and a some suspension tune-up, instead of bolting on some hideous, crude bodywork that degrades it's charm.

Does this Laura have a real quad exhaust or is one of them a dummy?

Sharing a few pics of my friends' Contessa ( pics saved from their Facebook albums ).
They bought the car in a Govt auction and turned it into a sort of General Lee.
