Looks wonderful. Love the clean white look. Good that you havent gone overboard on the exterior mod's.

No offence but the wooden steering and gear knob doesn't gel with the car. Looks very contrasting. Why not buy a sports steering (black)?

145k's on a M800 is not very safe mate. Get the brakes upgraded (there is a thread on this).

Going by the headlights i figure this is a post 2003 model mpfi right? More info on HID's please.

drive safe mridul.

Edit : Since you are in Chennai, try and join the chennai folks for the mahab's meet. I'm sure your car will gather lots of attention.

Hi Mridul, nicely done, especially the rims.

I get a warm, fuzzy, feeling whenever I see the 800's block, it's just so tiny & cute !

Can I ask where you got your 3-cylinder tach ? I know Pricol used to make them, but not sure if they're still available...

And, what's the sinister "device" on the strut tower, beside the air-filter ?

Well maintained and very well modded car. Car doesn't look like it has done 92k kms.
Like n_aditya said, change the steering and the gear-knob.
Isn't the filter placed too close to the engine, sucking in hot air?? I don't remember the stock air pipe position, so asking...

Nice ride..

Lose the Black fuel lid and paint / sticker the doors (below the black side moulding only) to black.. it will look good

Thanks for your quote..On the strut tower its the HID burner unit for the Xenon's which I have installed...the Tacho is Auto Gauge..Rims are Protech from Malaysia painted White to give the rallye look....I love rims in white...Shortly I would be getting a Swift with white rims on it...

Happy Motoring...

Great work dude! Really loved the rims! But pls change the wooden steering and gear knob. Does not gel with the rest og the car at all. Try a carbon fibre effect if u can find it.

Where did you procure the piping hose for the air intake or is it stock? Wouldn't the filter be sucking in hot air from the headers especially since they don't have a heat shield? Nice car overall. Me likes

hey .. really nice work on the car. you have done a neat job. if possible you can get the bumpers so as to go with the body color and even the door beadings and door handles as well. your filter looks a bit out of shape at places. check if your hood is touching it at some points on the filter when you close it. you might need to make a few small adjustments so as to make it fit right without causing any further damage to your K&N filter. very nice rims man. looks great in white! and could you do something about the Ferrari sticker on your front faring.. like get rid of it. its .. how do i put it .. wel .. " inappropriate" ! yea and the interiors are sweet with the nice tacho and stuff but you really could do without the wooden steering and gear knob as everyone has been pointing out to you

Thanks for your note..I would be getting all decals off the car as I would be sending it to paint..The reason why the filter looks a bit out of shape it due to fact that once while washing the car I had covered it with plastic cover to avoid water getting in...The guy in the service station started the car and filter got a crumpled unfortunately... yet it works fine...no problems..I checked it up with Kumar of Methods too he said there's nothing to worry...The reason I did not go for the body colour on bumpers is traffic and people keep nudging it..SO ITS OBVIOUS..Yes door handles I would paint them..STEERING IS GOING OFF...MAJORITY WINS...

Piping hose is custom made...Overall its a small engine bay and the headers are in direct contact with air flowing into the engine compartment from the grill..There's never been a problem...
