That's one hot Ertiga, Love the wheels.

It would have been even better looking without the roof carrier.

I think this Ertiga has been posted here before.

Truly hot ride, nevertheless. I especially like the color and the finish on the paint.

Agreed. They tried to give it a macho outdoor-sy look. Not my thing.

They are Borbets, not sure of the size though.

The Ertiga looks great. I love that shade. The vehicle is lowered as well.

They should have chosen the Cargo Box instead of the Basket from Thule though.

Wow, that looks nice.
What exactly have they done to the headlights ? Is it kind of colored film pasted on the headlamps ?

Cheers

Yes, colored protective films they are.

Here is an i20 with a different shade.

The i-20 reminds me of some sportspeople, wearing Oakley tints and colourful kicks!
Love it!

Yellow color has nothing do with fog lamps. It is the beam pattern that makes it a fog light, the throw has to be wide and short.

But the color of the light also makes a difference, right ?
Recently i was on the highway in very foggy conditions and the 6000k HID which i have on the fog lamps were of no use, as the white light was not able to penetrate the fog.
So i think if we paste these kind of yellow film on the lamps then the produced light will also be yellow , so that might help, please correct me if im wrong .

Cheers

No it doesn't. It is a huge misconception.

Your lights must be driving lights with long throw, and not short throw.

Not sure if it was this one. Saw an orange colour 5 in Punkunnam Thrissur earlier this week. It was PY registered as well.
