Is it advisable to fit a Roll Cage for Maruti 800 model?
What are the available safety add-ons for Maruti 800? Can I fit a Roller Cage? If yes, how much does it cost and where could I buy it in kerala/bangalore/chennai? Some techs told me that fitting such additional items will have a negative impact on the built-in safety features of the car. Which model they introduced side door impact beams in m800? plz help.

Aren't Roll cages normally used in rally spec cars.. Dunno why would u want to fit one to a regular road-going car?
Not that its a bad idea.. Someone I know (Ranjit of RAC, B'lore) was involved in a road accident in his Baleno which had a roll cage. It probably saved his life !! Infact, you can contact him for roll cage work in B'lore.

The body of M800 not as strong as other cars and I mainly travel in hilly areas and highways. Thats why I think about roll cage which I think costs around Rs 10,000/-. Could you plz give me the address of racing tuners or workshops for fitting roll cage in or around kerala?

Even though this is an unusual desire, if he wishes to put a rollcage in his car for safety reasons, its probably a good thing in the long run.
The only disadvantages i can think of would be :
1. Visibility might be compromised slightly (in the A-pillar region)
2. More weight (worse FE etc etc)
3. Bad news if the job is done by someone who doesnt know what they are doing.
Also, if you plan to be rolling down a hillside, you might want to consider getting some seats and a 4 point harness.
