PULZI marina is an ESTATE and a bodykit would make it look very wannabe. i'd say get fatter rubber with some nice chrome alloys and some nice ICE.

also you can go for a darker shade of tints all around on your ride.!
but then keep a look out for the cops

If i was you i wouldnt go for a metallic tint. Better would be a black tint. A really dark tint or even a medium dark would be nice. Go for a lighter tint in case you want to show of your interiors a little (which is of course if you have any interior mods). A nice shiny set of alloys (not chrome though) would be great. May be a Hyper silver or a hyper black would blend in nicely. It would be better if you get rid of all chromes from the body which makes the only thing shiny - the mags. Well hope my advice suits your taste. All the best for your "Black Magic"

Pulzi do remember dark tints are not legal and you can get into trouble for the same.
Marina is an Estate so unfortunately most of the external modifications will look bad.

Hey!!
Pulzi..
I think I had given a number of suggestion for the marina..And it was meant for you..(or was that for someone else??)..

By the way..
How about a Pimped Marina..
I have got a really wicked Idea in my mind..But I am sure its not going to work (atleast in India..)
Leave that ........



You Go for a luxury look..(sporty look wont suit that car..Unless you do some performance stuff)..

Heres how..
1.) Go for a design of rims that make the car look luxurious..I would prefer 5 spoke but solid design..
Or settle down for Chrome Multispoke..

2.) Good tyres...(Unidirectional,just my choice as I love those thread design)..

3.) Sun Film Keep It Black but mettalic..I mean it should shine when light falls on it..
But make a choice that isnt too shiny I mean those mirror effect one..

4.) Black Leather or Art Leather interior..Get some nice thread design on them too..You get many kinds of patterns..

5.) Get Brushed Aluminium finished Pedals..

6.) Get chrome in selected parts to give it that high end feel..Too much chrome can make you car look like a shiny piece of scrap..
LIKE Get your inner door handles chrome..
For exterior use the chrome strip of the new Marina..

7.)Also if you really want to go crazy..Get the new Lights from Marina
Even bumper replacement can be done..But I liked the old Rounder look..

Ok thats all I may come up with a virtual Modified Marina Soon..

Im not sure fi they fit but if they do you can add the sideskirts of the indigo sx to the marina. I think that should complete the look.
