The wheels are nice. The bonnet scoop is a bit sad, though.

Can see the pics now, using a different browser

I bought the same scoop to fit on my car, but i dint want to stick it just like that. My plan was to make a few holes on the bonnet to direct air to the filter...then had a look at the beautiful bonnet and scrapped the idea. I don't like to put anything that doesn't function.

In my opinion that filter is a bit small for the car, atleast it did look small on the bonnet of mine. The filter is still at my home on top of a shelf.

looks more like a roof scoop put on the bonnet.available here for rs450.also do i spot a chrome tacho in there.
this car still looks pretty decent...spotted a 800 in noida which had huge decals hich read Rally sports complete with neons and a sticker on the hatch which read CRDI power.

Pretty decent work.
I think this guy is going for simple yet sporty look.And he is giving some attention to detail.
Notice the chrome tachometer,the chrome wipers (just a patch).
The sticker on fuel lid
Also there are rectangular fog lamps under the bullguard.
The work is nice but it would look better if that scoop was on the roof.

Off Topic: Why does people fit bullbars on monocoque cars? Even the maruti owners manual says not to do it. The crash force is going to be directly transmitted to the engine subframe instead of going through the route the designer intended. Even small shunts is enough to get the crossmember bent.

I'm not saying that the 800 would be ultra safe without the bullbar, but it would be comparatively safer. This applies to all monocoque cars. Only the body on chasis type vehicle would benefit from the bullbars, or one designed to take them.

Like :
nice clean body
looks like a well kept (much loved) car

Dont Like:
the decals on the windscreen
( as usual , just dont agree with stickers )
the fake scoop
( whats the point of a scoop when its so obviously serving no purpose ?)
again the same with the bull bars
( like sankar said why make the car less safe ???)
