I think there is more to it than what meets the eye.
I have seen a red getz many times. It has its number plate
exactly where this sedan has and the original place
is filled with a graphic reading the owner's family name.
Something like: Reddy or Gowda.

So its an incomplete job I think. But presently, it has

Default Maruthi Zen with Smoked tail lamp....

Saw this Maruthi Zen in Hosur road. The owner wants to make his tail lamps to smoke effects and i believe he painted (mat black)it with black. Incase of poor visibility he tried to remove some portion of the paints from the tail lamp....

Thats one bling bling auto, even the taxis dont provide these services. How would the modification cost?

if the owner can afford the modification, then probably can also afford a shed/garage to lock the auto in or the auto is fitted with a security system also.

Hell!! Even our cars don't have a cassette player + am/fm reciever + cd player all stacked together.
The only things missing on that auto are doors!!!

He could have rather gone in for a taxi ( Car ) and made some money instead of doing all this

I really liked his carrier though , it reminded me of those PB registered Tempo travellers with Canada stickers and Aeroplane sticker on it.

I'm pasting a picture for everyones reference which i took when i was passing by Punjab last weekend

I just noticed the innovative luggage rack on top! It's just a normal luggage rack except......it has planes on the side!

Also notice fancy three spoke alloy wheels!

I was wondering what the use of the ladder was and if it had a practical purpose...it all makes sense now. Ever been in a situation where you were having trouble tying your luggage with a rope on top of an auto? This could happen to you even though:
a) The luggage rack has above-mentioned plane boundaries
b) The auto is unlikely to do high enough speeds for luggage to flail about

In that scenario, fret no more! Ladder to the rescue! Now you can climb up on top and tie your luggage securely with ease!

P.S.: Point b) is debatable. What's the guarantee that the owner who spent so much on visual and comfort upgrades has not spent anything on performance upgrades? My guess is that the auto is packed with a turbocharger, air filter, NOS...the usual. Wouldn't be surprised if it's been converted to 3WD either.

Wow, where does have space to keep the subwoofer? Btw, does he charge extra premium for travelling in his rickshaw?

Boy, what an auto. This guys surely loves his ride. Just look at the amount of mods and the man hours he must have put in.
Lets analyse what else hez got:

1)Turbocharger under the Lhs rvm
2)gear lever
3) Indica V2 badges (2 nos)
4)seats with lumbar support
5)Ben hur chariot style hub caps
6)dried grapes
7)A fan (intercooler )
8)A clock
9)Sony national and pioneer HU's

Next up: Underglow neons
NOS
Air conditioner
ABS
Airbags (Gunny bags will do)

Talk about passion. I dunno what he'll do if he gets a car.
