Hey, are you saying the swift GC is even close to the SX4 GC ? SX4 desparately needs skirts, it is kinda looking naked otherwise.

Side skirts from MGA ? Since when did they start that ? You will have to find that in the aftermarket.

Those are accessories that are not part of the car, look closely in a printed advertisement. Even the estilo sports sideskirts, I am not sure if these are available MGA.

Those are SX4 MGA Accessories. I took from the Accessories brochure and add them using PS.

Hello badboy,
I have been looking for you, where have you been

I put the same neon which you have put, but blew off within a week. You told that you have a friend in coimbatore to do skirting, do you know anyone in Chennai ?

Yup Esteemloving - MGA offers almost all after markets accesories, be it sunroof, ICE, skirts, spoiler, etc. Otherwise how would you expect the colour to match with new colours like Copper.

@badboyscad. Cool kit. The lights look a lot like Laura's now.
The alloys look really snazzy. WOnder how some vinyl stickering would spice up this car.

@badboyscad: thats a cool! Really nice! How much for the hood.
@gopinathann: I think you got a cue. Aftermarket rims + skirts is the way to start.

I enquired about MGA skirts, He told it comes around 25-28K for 4 sides. I told him that I can get around 20k outside, but he replied that MGA are unbreakable and there are 2 coats of paint (paint costs 6K).

I am waiting for the Autocard, once I get that I can get some discounts on skirting. Also ordered Philips Crystal vision online and got the bulbs. Anyone knows how to replace the bulb.
