Feel pitty about that Tata Estate. If the owner removes all those wacky stickers it looks pretty decent car.

this one was made for mountain dew and was gifted to somebody who eventually sold it and its up for sale again. Its been there from quite sometime and it ain't going nowhere.

Yesterday i was at one of the accessories shop at Malad,a fellow in a civic wanted to make his civic look a little sporty and guess what in a 7k he applied all the Autographics stickers of hoods/side-vents/bonet graphics and side graphic stickers

Is this what we call sports conversion in India

Welcome to India ramie bhai. Every sticker is worth 5-10 bhp.. or 5-10k in the value of the car

Hahaha, cannot agree more, people think that adding stickers and/or spoiler(s) will increase the speed of the car and they can start racing. Why do these spoil the look of a stock car like Civic which IMHO looks great in white colour.

In the Uk these are reffered to as go faster stripes, all thanks to Starsky & Hutch and The A Team etc. Only thing they're good for is hidding scratches

Thumbs up

Saw this one parked at a garage at Mulund today.
Didn't feel like it was weird or wacky. Found it to be pretty neat. Besides, the colour compliments the fusion of the Palio front with the rest of the Esteem!!!

The hood scoop is a let-down though.

Spotted this Hyundai Sonata which was made to resemble like Jaguar S-Type. Even though the idea is not so brilliant, the job done is of good quality. Multi-spoke alloys seems to be the most attractive modds in it!

Saw the modded Swift while I was filling my car at pump.

Decent job done on the Sonata.Looks like a mix of the Merc's headlights,the Beemer's grill and of course the Jag's emblem!

Last Saturday I was going down that road again and this time I had a camera, just slowed down to take a pic; and since it has been parked at this place for over a week, I assume it is up for sale.

Just look at the first pic. It's hilarious! the chachaji is scratching his head probably thinking 'Will blunders ever cease'?!!

Spotted a Low-rider mod on an Sigma 3x Mini-van, taxi regn under MH14. It was unexplicably stinking and that too with a BMW logo as the lid on the exhaust tail.
