Interesting!! This is a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Can you post a few complete shots of the car without any effects? It will bring out the mod's more strongly.

Simply classy! I loved those silver and black alloys and the head-on shot looks killer! You've completely transformed the looks of Rapid and performance specs look mouth-watering! What's under the hood? I guess there's a diesel-tuning box. If it is so, on what stage is it running? And once more, I simply love it when an understated-looking car gets sensible cosmetic and performance mods. Do post 'bout performance mods. If you don't mind, could you share the cost of the mods? And more pics would be definitely welcome!

Keep revvin'

Performance Mods;
  • K&N Stock Replacement Filter
  • 'Custom' Remap from Code 6 Tuning
To be frank i myself was surprised to see a Conical Stock Filter for Rapid. K&N Surely helps the car to breathe better in high revvs.

A Note on the Remap. This Car has undergone more than 26 hours of intense real world testing and about 7 iterations of the Map to perfect the tune. It is not Just another remap - it is a real 'Custom' Remap.

We did come across some really wild wild tunes, however we choose sanity over Insanity and Reliability over brutality and thus arrived at this map.

This Remap however, is a Class Apart - Talk about keep up with some powerful D Segment Cars

Probably this pic would hint you some of it;

More on the Remap, coming soon

Nice mods you have done there. The paint on the rims really makes them look completely different from stock. The tyres need to be changed man, you need 205s and 10mm spacers at the least

How about some pics of the Stanley interiors?

nice looking ride.
do post the acceleration and ingear times.

i suppose the rear would look even better with body coloured parking sensors.

and man!, the car begs for wider rubber and abit of lowering.

happy motoring

Hot looking car you got there Mi10! Congratulations. If there was a rapid vrs, I'm sure your car would put it to shame. 16 inch rims(from the Laura vrs maybe?) with wider tyres and lowered springs would make it just perfect.
Have you got any interior mods done? Please post pictures if you have. And I recommend you change the logo on the steering wheel to the 2013 one as well, if you haven't already.

Cheers!

Nice! Loved the mods and especially that you didn't change the look drastically.
Can you share the costs?

That is one nice looking Rapid. im not a fan of after market alloys, but bigger size in gunmetal would be more sinister.

There may be a Rapid vRS coming, doubtful for india though. you can source the original accessories to make it to sub zero cool.

The Rapid looks stunning.
Its personal choice, but among the cosmetic mods I like the headlights most.

Obvious form above comment, my second query goes like this. From where did you source the Monte Carlo spares and how much is the damage?
Congratulations!
