From what I gather, it had the Zen’s (2003 facelift version) rear, the old Swift’s front and the rickshaw top. It is a 2-door coupe as well!
Eeekkk... Whats that?? And how on earth, does one even drive this!

Dude, you made my day!

BTW, the rear light (tail light) looks very much from the Zen 2003 model -

Anyhoo, I kinda find it hard to believe that the donor is a Zen.
I thought you will give him hardtime good eye though !!

I'm kinda embarrassed now and indeed I meant contraption. I guess this is what happens when one comes home after a long day at work and immediately begins to post on team-bhp.com. Glad this mis-spelt word left you guys in splits though.

It may sound silly but think of it, if you do such mods to your car, it may definitely do the work of a contraception indirectly

Attachment 1151314

And there is a flag pole in the wheel arch too. This is for sure a politician's car and probably a politician who jumps parties so having two poles

BTW, This looks Yucky for a Ecosport. IMHO this happens because these people doesn't know the value of the car and its not their hard earned money !!

There is Rolls Royce that I had spotted a couple of times which was parked in front of 'The Mobile Shop' which was repainted in their colors which was red and white and had the name of their shop all over it. I think it was MH registered.

The fire decal was stuck on a car that lives to the image of a nice family car and it just looks so out of place like a guy in women's stockings.

@S2!!! The typo made it an epic joke and i ended up laughing in the middle of our status meeting just imagining it. Quite a contraception indeed, this, plying on roads . It looks like a matiz from the fuel tank lid.

If you are referring to a DL regn one, it was owned by an actress Leena who was involved in a financial scam.

This is still ok and with the car color it is hard to notice. But I still do not understand why folks put chrome stickers on the tail lights especially the SUV/MUVs. It would be really nice to understand their reason.

I have seen cars like the Fortuner worth 2 million with chrome put on tail lamps, door handles and all sort o places. I just don't understand the reason. It looks to weird and kinda cheap.

Apart from that the latest trend of putting bull bars on a cars like Wagon-Rs and Swifts too is just out of my understanding power.
