To me, it seems that the car might have been parked for days together and some innovative chap put up the broom at the right place. I see some cars in the background as well, that more looks like a parking or so.

Mee too think same. But must appreciate the innovative soul who put up that broom there. Definitely brought a large smile on everyone's face here.

There are a lot of weirdly modified cars on Indian used car sites, and the asking prices are almost always just as ridiculous.

Here's an interesting one from quikr.com: A Ford Fusion TDCi that's been forced to masquerade as a Land Rover Freelander, no less! Asking price Rs.4.5 lakhs.

Found this wacky i10 in The Forum parking lot. The pics were taken a few months ago.

That looks nice to my eyes !! Seems the owner wanted a NFS looking hatch. The body colour absolutely looks classy in my eyes.
Everything else looks nice, except the crazy Rally lights in the front.
I wonder what's with the crazy of installing these monster looking rally lights in the front, when it absolutely doesn't help the driver in any way at all (assuming that he is not taking the poor i10 to a OTR or a Rally).

Contrary to what to think, I believe those auxiliary lights are the only useful mod on the car, albeit being a bigger size to what would have looked good. The rest of the mods are IMO, pure tasteless. It's relative though. :-)

Aux lights improve the illumination in front of the car, hence I concur with this:

Beg to highly differ from both of you.

I believe they just make the experience of the opposite lane driver very painful.
Why would someone want to drive with those Aux Lights (as you named it) ON, in a city road ? Ok, agree, you drive on Highways. But why hit the eyes of the opposite lane driver with these lights ? What if a truck driver is blinded by this stupid Aux Light and rams into your car ?

There is a purpose and logic behind providing Headlights on each and every vehicle, with Low and High beams. I feel these Aux lights defys any logic, when installed on a city ride car - more importantly, on any car which does not have OTR capabilities. I absolutely hate those Indicabs. They drive with these high beamed Aux lights, blinding every other road user. And absolutely hate those Loud Noisy modded cars with these Aux Lights. Menace to the society - creating noise and light pollution.
Incase the illumination in front of the car is not enough, get a better bulb for the headlights, not install an Aux Light. Worse, getter an eye check up done. Worst, approach the Govt. to install street lights in that area.

These Aux Lights are a major help during OTR events, where there are no oncoming traffic and deep ditches / uneven earth. So ideally keeping with the logic of OTR, no sane person would take his i10, or any hatch for that matter to an OTR event. Then why put up those ugly eyes on a beautiful car.

For me, every car, except SUV or Rally Vehicles (with OTR Capabilities) who puts up those Aux Lights - Hope your eyes rot in hell

Just to bring to your notice, I wasn't 'driving'. As I mentioned in my post, I took it while being 'driven' past it.
I was in the passenger seat. My friend was driving.

Few more pics of the same i10.

@Soumyajit9: Bro, the wrap quality is bad and the car look better in photos. You have to see it personally to know how wacky it is. And to top it off, white ORVMs, fog light inserts and rear hatch opening handle (below the H emblem on rear hatch door)with golden body wrap?

(PS: There are few like us who use the aux lights only for highway drives, with out blinding the oncomming traffic. Hope we get an exemption from rotting our eyes in hell )

At the risk of going OT in this thread, but still, I think certain things have to made clear.

Depends on how they are focussed.

It's plain stupidity and/or arrogance to drive inside the city with powerful, blinding lights on. The BTP does charge people, mostly cabbies for using "dazzling headlights".

Quote:

Getting blinded can happen with the high-beams of the headlights too. Even a bike's HL is good enough for that.

It's road sense that you don't use high-beams/spot-lights when there's oncoming traffic. Moreover, these aux lights don't turn on along with the HLs. They do have a separate switch. So, it's alright to have them installed.

Quote:

Quite a few people use i10s for their long drives. I have just one car that I use to commute inside the city, and also use to head out on long drives. So, how would you define a city ride car in India? Maybe Reva is a city-ride car, and I agree to your point here.

Absolutely! Not many like either kind. The former kind never hesitates to foulmouth you for their faults

Some cars' HL reflectors are not so great. Haven't driven an i10 at night, so I cannot comment on that. But, the earlier Figos' and the latest gen M800s' HL reflectors do not provide a good illumination. A bulb upgrade won't help much in such cases. Moreover, using higher wattage bulbs will damage the HL lens and reflector relatively quicker than compared to stock wattages. An eye checkup won't help either. Approaching govt agencies to provide streetlighting on all the roads across all states, is not viable.

Bottom line is, everyone has their reasons. For me, having additional lights is not a crime, as long as they are used judiciously. Take a chill pill and agree to disagree.

EDIT:
Mods, this post may be moved to the relevant thread under Auto Lighting.

I take your word, yes things could be different in camera and in real eyes. If the finish is amateur then definitely belongs to WW thread. When I first saw the two pics, and now the rest of the pics, it immediately gives me a sense of those hot hatches from NFS series.

Ohh no Anoop, the curse is not for my fellow BHPians.
I can very safely say that our BHPian family is well aware of what's legal and what's not, same with what is logical and what is fancy.
The rant was aimed at two categories of drivers - one is the cab/auto/truck/taxi wallas and the second are filthy rich people. Both these categories just go with what the trend is, without actually having to understand the technicalities or the right way of using it.

Hey silversteed. My apologies if my post was a bit on the harsh tone. I have faced a zillion difficulties with these Aux lights. I have been lucky not to have run into them. Only when the vehicle is close to me, I realise the width of the vehicle (assuming that these are installed in the center of the front bumper) and cut my way !!
Like Anoop said, everyone has a liking and so do reasons. But yes, like I said also, these mods should be used judiciously, in a plain language, people who use it, should know how to use it, rather than use it for fancy.
