Saw this WagonR at Mandovi motors on saturday. It had one of the DC kits on and looking weird. The watchman (Also seen in picture) had a tough time identifying the vehicle.

Observe closely and you can see that the car had Orange interiors. Yuck.
DC Kit seems the turn the whole car into plastic.

After looking at the WagonR again I feel the whole plastic covering of the lower half of side and almost all of the frontal portion, looks like the protective thermocol packing material around electronics items you buy, only difference being DC has spared us by not making it white in colour

Any idea whether DC personally works/oversees designs delivered by his firm on lower end (read non-expensive) cars ?

As we have seen/learned on this forum, he is busy cutting more expensive cars

Oh my god!!! "Who did this??" was the question that came into my mind and with an answer too. And it was clearly none other than DC on the badge.
Look at the sides!!! yuck! yuck! yuck! Can anyone stop me from spewing it out?? The front is made with some taste but the bumper sides spoiled the whole design. There's no fluency in the design. Or am I asking too much from DC??

Unfortunately you just hit the nail bang on the had SZ!! This has always been a DC design favourite, Plastic cladding and that also not in the body colour. And from what I have seen & heard after taking a beating on our roads this cladding deteriorates very badly. Infact some owners have had to remod their cars & remove the cladding completely.

I think the kids in my nearby nursery school can do a better job than this... Plus it wont even cost that much... after all you just have to lift the car and put it in some crazy looking cardboard moulding... Come on DC you still think that this sh!t is designing....

hey i think this is an attempt by DC to copy the suzuki splash concept... check out this thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...=suzuki+splash (Suzuki project Splash :The new A2-segment car from Maruti?)

But needless to say even the original aint that great...so less said about the copy the better !!!
