Default Re: DC's Duster customisation starts from Rs 3.49 Lakh

One of the most subtle and classy design by DC in a long long time! Looks a lot better than the original in this colour scheme.

But DC should pay attention to minor details before taking the vehicle for a photoshoot, some one at DC Design forgot to put the rubber beading correctly

Sacrificing function in the name of style?
Regular headlamps might have been replaced with the Projector beam which must be of a bixenon type. And the unlit part of the LED strip might be the indicators.

Sorry for going OT. But I personally would prefer this version of duster.


I just love limo-fied cars.

Just what exactly is that contraption between the driver's seat and the front passenger's? That just looks hideous!
The interior itself looks a tad too gawdy.

The right word for this is "Futuristic".

In my simple terms, it looks Good and should be moved to the Other Thread (Tastefully modified).

The chrome on fogs was the decider here. Without it, this definitely looks futuristic.

Hi all, Going by the types of designs DC has recently come up with I think this is the most acceptable of them all. Thankfully its easier to identify this Duster on road. Its best suited for its own thread I believe.

thanks

On closer look, isn't that the headlights?

5 LEDs are just DRLs/park lights and the remaining LEDs in off position are most likely the indicators.

Those Projectors/Headlights are way too low for practicality. That's the part of the bumper which most cars have scratches on! And definitely a sweet spot for parking nicks.

Never really liked customization of DC but I am neutral to this. It is not so bad but not too appealing either, specially with that kind of money.

Anyone knows if cost of Nimbu-Mirchi is included in 3.49 lakhs?

At night, there would be serious problems without high mounted headlamps. There is a reason why OEM's put headlamps just below the drivers line-of-sight. It's law in Europe. Long range vision at night will be practically nil, with those puny lights at ground level.

Lovely work Edmund, I much prefer this to DC's work - then again I have NEVER liked ANY of DC's work.

I prefer the original Duster to DC's creation.

Exactly. DC seems to have forgotten function in the quest for form.
