Default PICS : Tastefully Modified Cars in India

So, there's the weird and wacky mods thread. But how do we honour and appreciate the cars (not necessarily our own) which have been mod'ed tastefully.

So, here goes.

Saw this Chevrolet Cruze parked at Chevrolet A.S.S.

Very beautiful HLs

A nice glossy touch to the roof; for a moment I thought it was a panoromic sun-roof!

Personally, I could have done with a lesser chrome but looks fine

Smoking hot alloys

Liked the wheels, the blacked out roof & the headlamps but the hood scoop and the front look W&W IMHO!

the wheels kinda look small for that wheel arch. what are they, 15 inchers?

also, is the car actually red and your Mango screwed up the colour?

Totally agree; chrome isn't going with the overall look.

Lancer looks simple and elegant yet sporty. Cruze looks hot, but it could do with bigger wheels and also black paint on the front bumper doesn't look good. Love those Audi-ish headlamps.

I still Love the OE Lancer SFXi factory looks. It was the best combination of style, elegance, sportiness (Now only if that car had a more powerful engine...)

Is the Cruze KL registered? I've seen this car in Koramangala Forum mall MLCP a couple of weeks back.

A really neat modded Nano, that is minus that aerial.

Found these on a public page in Fb and hence not covering the plates.

Though I always wished for a thread on this line but never went ahead and created one.

Now while its already here I am not sure that I like it or not as the very first page doesn't look promising.

Cruz in the very first page is not doing it for me, the front end it too busy.

That Nano with debadging and those body colored eyelids is looking pregnant to me.

The superb looking R219 CLS which in stock conditions look smoking hot, here with all add ons looking a bit over the top.

Anyway hope the proceedings now on will be better and we will get to see some really good cars.

Full marks to that Lancer though.

@libranof1987
Today morning I saw a matte finish black Optra. It was looking gorgeous and I was thinking, why don't we have a thread on team-bhp to appreciate these mods. Now that you have started it , will try to capture the Optra as well as other deserving candidates.

Nice thread. That said I agree with BANDHAV. The Cruze doesn't cut it, but the Lancer does.

And there are many cars in other threads including the W&W which can find place here.

Starting with this adorable M800. God I love it. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ml#post2629959 (Modded Cars in Kerala)

The original Lancer design happens to be one the most timeless designs I have ever seen. Just for that, the Lancer should be exempt from this thread, else most entries would be for that car!

If that car were to be launched today, it would still look perfectly appropriate.

The designer deserves a bronze statue on some famous tourist trail!
