Thank you all for the suggestions. Currently it comes with 185/65-R14 alloys. Was thinking if upgrading to wider 190 will make any difference.

Also pls let me know good modders in Bangalore. Who is the best to do the EC remap?

Does any of these CAI/FFE stuff makes my car noisy (like those teeny boppers who move around with that booming sound)? I am not interested in such mods, even though I dont mind engine rev sounds.

Is there anybody here who has done similar mods on a Verna? I would like to have their feedback as someone said Hyundais are generally not very mod-friendly cars. Dont want to spend thousands and end up finding no change.

190 is not a size for car tyres. You can upgrade to 195/60 R14 tyres.

I dont think RAC is a dealer for Pete's .. Yes , they do make standalone's .. But , dont know how much of a difference it will make on a verna .. Oooppss , just realized this is a petrol verna which means you don't have the pete's option as well ..

I recently saw one car with black metal finish on its grills and other normally chrome parts. It looked quite attractive. Is it something which can be done on the existing chrome surface(like plating, coating etc) or do I need to go for totally new metal.

I know you are not going for major body works. But i always felt the grille spoiled verna's looks.

May be the hood be modded like this?

@crazykudos - the grill you edited is more wierder than it already has.
i hope someone comes up with a better grill for the verna.

and guys why did u stop the discussion his budget is 1 lakh plus he dosent mind making his warrant void.

i would say go for skirts and do meet up with pshycho for the conical airfilter free flow and the ecu remap.

anyways hope by now you have sucessfully got everything done.

oh i also forgot you need better tyres so forget the ecu remap and go for the yokho and some mean alloys

Appuchan, you can paint the existing chrome grill but with time and sunlight breathing down the paint will wear off. From personal experience I can say get a custom grill fabricated. I just got one for my baleno. Just the way you too wanted. In complete black instead of chrome.

Thanks mclaren, actually my question was about 'black metal' finish, not a black paint. Its actually a chrome finish with a dark tinge, not the normal glossy one. I dont think this is something that can be painted on easily. May need some sort of 'plating' or something of that sort.

Thanks Xinome. I am not keen on many external mods like skirts. Yes I can consider better alloys and some moderate perf mods which is suitable for normal city/highway drives. I would be even happier if this is something that can be changed at runtime like an Econo mode and Perf mode. Dont want any flashy/noisy types though.

I request the mod experts here to suggest a good starting point for me. My focus will be more on performance, comfort and dynamics rather than on aesthetics. I would not prefer to change the exterior looks of my car much, except for some minimal changes.

I am based in Bangalore and would also like you guyz to recommend some good "mod garages" around here.

Appu.
Starting off with Koni's or any other perfomance suspension setup would be a good idea to tame the beast , and when the beast is tamed well enough you can carry on the extra engine mods.
