I have got an ikon at home. And I put up a body kit from a local workshop for about 20000 Rs including a new hood and spoiler. But honestly speaking, its the wheels and tyres that make the difference.

I got it done at Central Motor works thats near east fort, trichur. Contact Johny on 9846075551. But be prepared to leave your car there for a few weeks if he agrees to pimp your ride!

Well the spoiler which gunner has on his car is the Evo 5 Tommy Makinen Edition one,the evo 7 high deck spoilers would look real sweet on your car.A nice set of rims,tires should be top priority.

Akaik for 1500 bucks you can get only a GT wing,that too a cheap looking one.The Evo type spoilers in fiberglass cost a minimum of 5k.

Default Stage ONE Begun

Stage One is modifying my Ikon just begun. Currently just changing the end muffler can. Quotation of 1.5 k including fitting. Getting it done on Tuesday ( 18th Dec). Upgrading to complete FFE in January. Went to Raj's workshop today. Interestingly saw a brand new SX4 being modded with a complete FFE from head to tail. Also a black CRV and a Zen.

Cheers

try chameleon and ss concepts in bangalore ... if you want the whole custom made that is.. or you could just spoilers ready made... right now my lancer is in ss concepts the bodykit finishes are really good. he does bodykits for all companies like bimal,white field honda,pratham, hyudai in sarjapur road...

16 inchers are too optimistic....you CANT fit 16s to any IKON without major modifications....and i still wont think it would be a good idea coz then ur car would look like a truck(ikons have a raised suspension)...So for 16 inchers then have to go for Konis or Eibachs to keep the suspension low.

My suggestion: go for 14 inchers or max 15 (though i would still not suggest it coz it would kill the steering)..
For alloy brands there are plenty of options available- HR,League,Plati,Aura,Neo,Kyowa,SM.Even Lenso has come up with a 14 incher.These brands have a wide variety and the price ranges from 15K to 25K.
External mods have to be minimalistic on an IKON..coz its not a very mod friendly car(i know coz i own an IKON and have tried mods).But you can go for front and rear fenders and side skirts.go for a good aftermarket exhaust(magnaflow,Remus) and a K&N filter and remember to use the stickers generously so everyone knows about what you did to ur car.and please avoid cheap stickering.a Ferrari IKON aint tasty to look at.

Hope this helps.I could suggest some more once i know whats ur budget and the level of mods you want to go for.

Thanks
Anshuman.

If not the new one, i was planning to buy a custom made bumper from either Coimbatore or may be even from JC road in Bangalore. Would anyone suggest JC Road? Have never tried buying anything from there.

Hi Sanju,

The bumper including the paint costs only 9.5K. Dont provide wrong figures!
