The cab driver even spent cash on alloys. But certainly not the right choice!

The lower portion is a bit overdone (including the vertical DRLs), but IMO its a decent attempt. Good that the guy didn't swap the Honda badge with that of Chevy. Any other snaps? How was the side and rear treatment?

Well your opinion. Actually there are many more cabs like these here and i must say some are very well pimped up!

There's a gloss pink Amby in Mumbai too. Anyone posted a pic so far?

The pink/gloss pink Amby could possibly belong to Imam Siddiqui (a Big Boss contestant famous for run-ins with Salman Khan)
He is the protagonist of a new reality? show and he was shown with a pink amby.

The alloys most probably would have come ready with the car when its picked up by the taxi driver from the seconds market. Now a days, you find lot of instances of interior/exterior fittings which are not really in line with the earstwhile taxi trade . This must be the effect of the regular cars finding their way to the taxi market after the demise of the Padmini workhorse.

4 antennas in 1 beat?
I can't understand why he put the "STOP" sign in the rear bumper? Maybe to remind someone who forgot to apply his brakes?

Don't think there is anything beneath those. They are on the body extension and probably just for show. Probably they are put up as a warning to the vehical behind to slow down and hence if this warning is not heard, there is a Stop sign once the follow comes closer We have lot of taxis sporting these without any internal connection to them at all .

Of course, they lead to nothing. I was just trying to be sarcastic, probably ended up sounding serious!

This car is registered ML 10 which is from nongpoh about 50 kms away from Shillong and people there have some crazy ideas about pimping up there rides! There is this 800 i see very often painted half red and the other half yellow, its windows are full of those cheap smiley kind of stickers. i'll try and get a pick next time i come across it.
