a good set of alloys and a FFE would do the trick,avoid vinyl jobs as it may look cheap at times and body kits for wagon r makes it more boxy.you can add on a performance filter like the green cotton too.that would be sufficient for a neat job.if you are keen then the grill can be changed to a meshed one.

If you get a nice body kits then it will be fine like Ram said if it is not good then car looks more boxy.You can go for Green cotton Wind.

I will have to change the set of tyres that have done more than 50000kms now on my wagonR. I am planning to go for the tubeless this time. Can you folks suggest or give me the specs for this? I am looking at more broader tyres this time for looks. Sorry for the short notice. I need this info before I go to the dealer this Saturday after noon.

PM fellow member shajufx for details and maybe you can check his gallery here .
Are you looking at only upgrading the tyres and retain the stock rims or alloys + tyres ?

Good to see you here Santosh. Well as far as Wagon-R mods are concerned i think there were pics of a Black Widebody TC floating in some thread. Mods can you have them here please. Also Santosh can you do a small favour of uploading some good pics of your decent ICE install. I am sure members would like it, so will it be of good help in this thread.

Hey RJStyle69, Thanks for the update. I am not going for the alloys. I guess the "Bridgestone potenza GIII, 165/60 R13" looks good. Any idea how much this costs? Also please let me know the alloys cost?

The best you can do is go in for FFE with headers which should give u a good bump in power with balanced back pressure..An Air Filter would only give better breathing and if the volume of air is high the ECM balances the fuel ratio too...K & N filters are reliable and works well..Get a Universal Filter job done with intake piping in mild steel or Aluminium ( Though its expensive)...After installation of the Air Filter disconnect the battery supply & connect it again so that the ECM programs & adjusts to the new installations.. as u would be running high revs due to FFE, use Synthetic which would take care of the engine...The problem with STILE is a small engine in a heavy body. Anyway good luck with your mods
