A good body paint itself may set you back 30-35K

I doubt you can get all that done in 40k. The exhaust job alone will cost upwards of 8k (in case a header and free flow job is carried out). Just changing the muffler for sound will cost around 4k to 5k.

Alloys alone (not inclusive of tires) can cost a minimum of 15k for a set of 4.

My advice is to prioritize the modifications based on requirement and budget them accordingly. Take one step at a time so you will be able to save up and get good quality decent stuff for your car one at a time. No point hurriedly investing and later upgrading the stuff as that will turn out to be more expensive.

Except for the exhaust, you do not need to go to a modifier for anything else. There are a couple of good workshops in Hosur itself who will do the tinkering & painting stuff. Meet some bengaluru bhpians & find a good place for the alloys & the exhaust.

I suggest get the car painting done at Green Cars which is closer to you, Exhaust done by some one who is a methods online dealer; Anekar motors is one, but they are far from where you live. Alloys come down to sheshadripuram meet mr. Saravanan, he is good and you can bargain. go for 14inchers with Yokos or bridgestones tubeless, all these might overshoot your budget by 10-15k... hope this helps...
