Have attached the image of my Kazekage (unfortunately from my phone ). Would this qualify as tasteful modifications?

P.S.: Guys let me know if I should create garage for him?

Looks good man! There is something weird about the angel eyes / projectors though.. Front looks kinda weird! (in my honest opinion, not sure what others feel )


I think you should go back to keeping the headlights halogens. Or black out the headlights if you have projectors, and sticking to ONE angel eye per side

Just my 2 cents, you should go with what YOU think is good! It is after all your ride and your happiness matters the most!

I love the rims and the black OVRMs!

Get rid of the halos. IMO.
They're so ubiquitous, soon they'll be on interstate buses and trucks.
Better yet would be auxiliary lamps at bumper height.

Your projectors were the first thing that jumped at me and then the broken bumper.

Its time to let go those angel/demon eyes. They are a bit last season.

Sorry bro - the headlights ruins it for me. I like the alloys though. Either switch back to OEM lights with smoked look, or go for single projector without the halo ring, and please do get the bumper fixed. In this current state, I will definitely create a garage, but will not put her in this thread.

A couple of neatly done up cars I came across in the past few days.

Love the Polo's R line grille. A refreshing change after the sea of GTI emblazoned grilles I've seen in the past. Love the way he has kept things subtle, from the blacked out spoiler to the ORVMs. I can say the blue tint on the rear lights are a bit tacky, but I'd be nitpicking.

The Brio sounded sweet. Not sure if I noticed a FFE. One of the very few times I liked a gaudy colored alloy wheel, but this guy has kept it restrained. Eyesores in Brio - British union symbol on the IRVM, and those silly DRLs on the number plate. Maybe that's just me. Enjoy.

I don't think the Polo was a GT model, because I saw a manual gearbox inside and black interiors of the GT models is obvious from its absence. It was spotted at my college parking, riding on 215/45/17 tires (New radiology PG, If you are reading this, take a bow, well done with the Polo). Brio was spotted at A2B near Salem on the way to Coimbatore.

The wheels let it down, and the tow hook, if thats what it is.
Stayed true through most of the car, lost it on the wheels.

Looks Great though I suggest you remove the front numberplate frame, and possible get a set of german style plates. Will add to the look.

Thank you Akshay means a lot coming from you

You mean sticking the plates on the bumper with super tape ? Yeah I was planning on doing that at the back and getting a sticker type number plate in the front how do you think that would look ?

@ Ferrariwell Wow..!! I must say the wrap works very well with the alloys. And, you decided to keep the roof shiny, love that!! How much did it cost you to wrap it? Now I'm smitten by the bug and want my vento to be wrapped too. Lovely execution brother. And to say that your car looks better than the merc when wrapped speaks volumes. Its just my opinion though, no offense meant at the merc owner. (@ the merc owner:Bro, you could afford to MOD the car of my dreams, Lucky you..!!)

Cheers!

Yup I'd say stick them on with 3M double sided tape, since the bumper has an indentation for the number plate having a sticker which would be smaller will look odd. On the front stick it on, on the rear leave it as is. Though I also meant get the little blue stripe on the number plate with D written.

Btw instead of the usual headlight upgrade, I've heard the LED headlights from the Euro Polo can fit here. And I mean the proper full LED headlights, not just the ones with DRLs.
