I got it done from the Maruti dealer itself. Cost some 25K for Tubeless, alloy wheels, body color bumper, fog lamps, spoiler fins, chrome grill..

155/70 R12 tyre profile... I guess i paid around 4K difference in exchange to stock tyres. Chrome grill costs around 600 bucks or so...

Some pics of the car, I thought if I could put a black imitation hood scoop it might look good!

Good!! That's a good looking car. If you add that airscoop sticker, It'll make the car look cheap. My suggestion is to avoid it.
Remove those black round stickers from the Headlamps. If you want to improve the overall looks, then get internally adjustable mirrors. it looks very far better than the stock ones.

If you really want your car to look good then try something like this;

Wowwwwww.. this looks really cool. Yes! Iam planning to get internally adjustable mirrors.

This is what I had thought.... with imitation scoop.



SpeedZak: That design looks really cool... tempting me :-P also.

Or how about some stickering like GReddy, NiTROX, OZOne etc.. just a thought !

Dsinz, what you have is not a spoiler, its just a fake antenna. And go with what most people have said here... don't go for the fake air scoop. You sure will look like a wannabe. 99 % of the people around you know that it is fake.

IMHO, just putting on a mesh grill will be much better.

Yes, Yes, I am NOT going for the scoop! I just put what was in my mind on that pic.

Check my garage for some stickering ideas on Alto.

@JOZ The thingy which sits on the roof of Dsinz's car is not an antenna. It's just a Shark fin. And it's normally fitted on BMW etc.. for aerodynamic purposes and it's here for show purposes only.

Cool Wow!

Maybe just some discreet stickering. Also a blackout on the B-pillar will look fantastic. See what I've done to wifey's car for input (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vbpicg...?do=view&g=301)

Dude, that's one damn, damn good looking car & the colour's perfect.
Showed wifey your ride, & she wants the same paint & bumpers as well, so those changes might be expected next.

Don't put anything fake on the ride. Pleeeeeeeeeese,
coz it's gonna be a pain in da butt for me to come down to Bangy to beat some sense into you!

Discreet stickering would look good i guess I liked SpeedZak's stickering of his Alto. May be some thing like that in white may be a viable option.
NO FAKE is the order of the day!
Basically I wanted to do simple mods to give it a sporty appeal and not go in for major replacement or tinkering...



How about some stickering like this??? Replacing Aura logo he he

Why? You have a nice looking car. If I was you, I'd leave it just the way it is. Looks quite nice and clean.
