Its been almost 8 months since my thread had an update. thought will start off now...unfortunately, the mechanics of my car has been giving me trouble for the last few months. Had in fact planned to sell it some time back. But luckily i got a great mechanic...now back to normal.

Planning to start the mods soon. Last week got two black stripes on the car and the complete look has changed. removed all the wheel caps to match with the blacl stripes.

Deperately looking for a new set of wheels and tyres. had been hunting in JC road for 2 weeks now but could not finalize on the alloys. Upsizing to 14" confirmed. Looking to but Goodyear Eagle F1. Saw some snaps of that in team-bhp on an ikon and looked really impressive to me.

Need help in selecting alloys. HR or Lenso. Saw P&W in auto shop in koramangla. Never heard much about that earlier. Any guess on how good it is??

The only thing i have now is a rear end muffler can and an impressive ICE. Nothing much. I need contacts to get a mesh grill and bumper.

Thanks

You can get the SXI mesh grill its pretty good and suits the car well. If you have the old bumpers, try to get the SXI /new bumpers but this costs a lot. Last time i heard, it was 25K. Get a nice performance air filter too.
I would prefer Michilin XM series over Goodyear. do these and you have a nice car to drive.

This is by far the best body kit(bumper) i have seen on the Ikon. The Ikon looks better with its stock bumpers and very little can be done to enhance it and i think it is beautiful the way it is.

Found this on the N1racing website, Its modded (i guess stage 2). The fog lights do look a little out of place though but acceptable.
Its subtle in design, the muscle might be a little overdone and notice the little scoop for the air-filter on the RHS just over the headlight, very well accomodated.
