He just got rid of his Cayenne, and a correction, the A8 S-Line is coming later this month.

Perhaps not. This car looks so sleek and smooth, the spoiler may take away from the present neatly fluid lines.

The dark glasses and rear lights make a delightful contrast with the while body.

With this car, you should be gliding along engine barely purring, all the windows rolled up all the lights out. Stealth is the word. Great work Arush.

Autopsyche,

Excellent work done for a palio. It would be really nice to know more details about the mods done and the total cost also(please PM me if you do not want this to posted in the forum). I am really keen to go for this mod considering that my car is 6yrs old now and it definitely needs some change as interiors have grayed out

Guyz, unfortunately I had to leave the car exposed to sun most of the time in my office and its four year age has resulted in faded dull roof on my F.Red 1.2 NV Sport. And a very minute burn on the hood too (had some chemical drop when I parked the Car in company basement to keep out of sun.

If only roof is repainted, wouldn't it make a difference with the stock color?

One guy qouted 1.2K for vinyl covering the top in black. Will a Vinyl work look good on the roof? anybody did a stickering/black roof.

@ Jacs - get the roof and the hood painted with the same colour - F. red. and get the car polished (3M polish) - you may not find any difference if the job done is good.

Black Vinyl on the roof will not look good IMO.

jacs, i think the roof might look in a different shade once you get it painted to F.Red,
but then again it would not look very odd as it's in a different view(top view only) compared to getting a paint done on the bonnet or the door or something...
u get what i am trying to say ?


another suggestion, would be a nice matt finish paint for the roof alone.
i think it will look good.

edit - it would look sporty...will try to add a PS image and maybe u can get an idea

this is how painting the roof alone in black may look like:

you may make it a little sporty by doing some additional painjob such as:

Name:  ipal3.jpg
Views: 1563
