No Riju, he forgot to put vinyl on the B-pillar after opening the door.

You need to open both doors and put vinyl on the pillar or else this will be visible. Check out all the cars that have blackened pillars as OE and you will notice this also.

^^^ Actually I'm not so much interested in a sealed battery. I'm looking for something in the lines of Exide Freedom. Something which is low maintaince.

I like the racing stripes, have them on my 800.They make the car look good from a distance.
Get a nice set of alloys and vroom type of exhaust.

Also try losing some of the stickers on the left side of the windshield

The top left side of the body seems damaged, how come ?

I selected an exhaust tip for the car, but the Alto exhaust pipe bends down towards the road .... so can fit only after getting it bent. Ruling this out for now.

I have more plans for the car:

Phase-I:

- Allow Wheels
- Internally Adjustable OVRMs on both sides
- Rear spoiler
- Yellow paint on brakes
- Cabin Light connection for rear doors
- LED lights for underbody

Phase-II is for the interiors:

- Tachometer
- Steering wheel replacement

Phase-III: K&N Air Filter

A part of my upstairs neighbour's parapet broke and fell on the car. The bonnet is full of dimples due to the building material's impact

Guys!

need help. I am having an ALto VXi 2002 model having covered 69K kms. The car gaving being driven by various drivers is in a pathetic state. The suspension seems all but existent. There is hardly and action and the car seems to be bottoming out.

I need help in checking out the suspension. Does it need a replacement or does it just need some tuning/firming up etc? Any pointers as to where I can get it done in coimbatore would be of immense help.

And any pointers to a good car service station in coimbatore and also a good automotive paint job shop in coimbatore would be welcome.

cheers!
