It is stuck like the bumper guards... I will post the pic of my alto with that

Small incident:

I was crusing smothly on my bike about 45 to 50 kmph. a car was in front of me and yeah the dirver and passenger smoking and throwing their as out the window. at one point of time the freakin buring ash caming out of the window and left a small mark in my skin (burn mark) and it was a sting to my hand. i tried stopping them but those smokers sped away.
i mean guys who smoke in car (no offense) plz watch out where u throw ur cig buds and ash. caz it is a lil dangerours for motorists who r driving on the road....

DSINZ: sorry for going off topic..The ext antenna (the type that comes in BMW 7 series) stuck near the rear windscreen is a decorative item or functional as well? if functional then did you drill a hole in the body of the Alto to wire in?

This might help with ambi-Pur there is a freshner called After Tobacco.. smells the best and is highly effective I somke approx 12 cigs a day in my car alone being in delhi heat I sometimes don't even roll down the damn window..

Just putting the vent on fresh air, rolling the window down a lil and after tobacco fragrance will do a good trick.

Smoking : A phonomenon in which the paper roll has fire on one end and a fool at the other..... but

@dsinz:these are pretty small to deflect any rain/wind.do they serve their purpose because i wanted to put these but the accessory shop ownertold me to go for the bigger ones which cover 1/3 of the window.
@gd1418:the ext. antennae/fin spoiler is a purley decorative item.it comes with double sided 3m tape on the bottom.reatils for about 80 odd bucks.

@ hellspawn: I thought let the visors do what it can do the max and I thought it mite look cool on the car... So "Some Functionality + Style element" was the reason behind putting those.

@ GD1418: Purely decorative purpose. Do not want to drill on any part of the car

these things are also called as "door visors" in most of the accessory shops. The ones we get in india are too small, and not worth it. back down under, i had it on my car there and they were pretty big and gave a real nice look also doing their job.
