underbody neons so far in my knowledge arnt illegal because i have been pulled over at night with my neons on for a normal check up point.

and they where quite impressed with the light, they said good car and let me of!

i paid 1500rs for a pair of blue neons type r i think and they have been with me for a year now no problems at all, i had all 4 sides with neons but lost the front neon to a accident.

AKA my service center said they will fit it for me, and it wont void any warranty of the car!

i wouldn't recomend tinting the lights..tints may look cosmetically good. but they actually reduce some brightness of your headlights, instead you can go philips crystal vision xenons to give that white light and i bet the SX-4 will look awesome with a skirting kit, if you wanna do skirting then let me know.

I got the Type-R underbody Neons on all 4 sides of my car. Been there since a long time and no problems at all with water, dust, cops etc.

My garage has the pictures

The reason for tinting is not because I wan't white light, it will look differently rather than black tint. I have sketched some graphics in photshop to know how it looks after tinting. I want to make a light violet tint, if the brightness is less after the tint then I can go for a high power.

Is there any advantage of skirting kit apart from looks? I have seen the skirting for SX4 in Maruti Accessories. I saw one Swift with skirting but the driver side skirting has been half torn and looked ugly (think got hit in turning). I think it is not advisable for indian roads. Even my santro got hit at the left side bottom when parking as there was a manhole. How much does the skirting cost, because I have stretched enough to get this 8 lakh car. Initially I can spend a little only for the accessories.

nischint i think he said in his dashboard not on his dash board lolz
that would be like zero visibility in night.

it would look seriously good. make sure the neons get activated when you open your doors.

Sorry for the late response!
damn it i got confused again sorry guys! my bad

but i had a good laugh with nischint's astonishment!

dont worry regarding switches! you can use anupam normal switches or the push and pull out ones!

my friends indica had the push and pull ones
and i have the normal anupam switches!
let me see if i can get images for you anyways by now i guess you would have already installed them, so now atleast can we have a look at a pic of your car at night with the neons on!

I 2nd that opinion. Spend on something that remains bliss all day and night.
Neons only help the on-lookers admire your car.
