Yes, a mix of stock and trd sportivo, with carbon fiber wrap (or print) alloys. The front bumper is stock, the rear bumper is from TRD Sportivo and the interior is done very nicely. Sorry for the poor cell phone pics - the car looks subtly different from the stock ones we get to see.

I generally love Jeep's. This particular Thar is maintained & modified very well. I am ready to take this vehicle with me if the owner allows

That's a stock Fortuner. The tail lights are part of the new refreshed version, I guess. Saw a few new ones with those.

The seats with the criss cross pattern that!
I think that is what I like the most about this car, along with the tail lights (that look less aftermarket than OE ones).

You've got to hand it to the Keralites!!! Give them something as mundane as an Indica, and you get this! Truly 'Mods own Country' it is!

The F30 does look nice, but it only seems to have a spoiler as an add-on. Considering the tuner badging, maybe it has some mechanical mods underneath?

The lower part of the OE bumper and the roof has been painted black. I can't make out if it has retrofitted alloys or whether the OE ones have been painted black.

Nevertheless thanks for the share Doc! Subtle indeed.

Though just a part of the spoke is visible, that's the 17" OE wheel of sportline 320d painted black.

TATA did it first!

That looks heavily inspired from the Vista Sport concept showcased at the autoexpo in 2010. Link (Tata Prima and Indica sport at the Expo(and some misc))

That said, I think it can do without the spoiler.

Cheers!

Colonel, even I had the same thoughts after seeing the RRP badge. The alloys, as described by AJ are OE ones painted matte black. I tried to get a side profile pic, but man was he fast.

While the polo is one handsome car and lowering nearly any car is cool, the fat skirt here adds a lot of weight, like a huge double chin and throws off the balance of that fine German design.

The very reason why skirts took over from body kits was because they were milder (read:smaller) and preserved the individuality & honesty of the original design while adding a sportier look. Which is why this sort of a Fat skirt seems to me to be archaic and counterproductive.
I am indeed very offended and am beginning to resent the skirt maker & the owner for ruining the polo with it.

It seems to me the aim of this build was to bring the car as low as possible, if so, I suppose an Accuair type air suspension kit would be much better suited to tuck the wheels without ruining the design of the car.

I apologise if I offend anybody, I am studying to be a product designer and am extremely passionate about aesthetic & soul of design.
In the end, to each his own I suppose. I sincerely wish the owner enjoys his polo.
