Mehul. Ammm.. It would do the car a world of good if you removed the overhead luggage carrier via PS job or in real. If it is an absolute necessity then I'm not complaining.

You can put the center console from the Zen VXi models.I have done the same for my LXi.Since its now out of production you may need to hunt for it. All the best!!

For the center console go to your local MASS and ask for the same and the bracket too.
There are two brackets in Zen one is for the console with no glass holders and other bracket is for the console with glass holders (this is much wider ) .Total cost is around 220Rs for console with glass holders and Rs 15 for bracket .

Now only came across this thread. Wow great for a guy like me who is a fan of ZEN. I am having a 2006 Zen LXi and a 99 model ZEN D.
I didn't see anyone specifying about ZEN D over here. I am planning to get some mods done to my ZEND. So what all can i do to get more performance on the diesel engine. Installing turbo is not advised since it can affect the engine. What else can be done? without much affect in FE. My ZEN-D's current FE is 24-26 on H/w and 18-20 at City. The car has now done around 1L KM. Still going STRONG. All suggestion are welcomed.

Also one more question. I am planing to work my ZEN-D's suspension . I want to overhaul it. What is to be done for this? What kind of overhauling actually is done to suspension? How much can that cost? And does anyone know who can do this properly in Trivandrum.

Congrats on the new paint job....The car looks fab. I love the way you have painted the center console and AC vents in silver. I was planning on doing the same thing but just not getting the time.

@Modifiedsachin: Your zen looks good. Where are you getting this job done?
I too have a 98 carb zen with me and would love to restore it.
If you don't mind can you provide the costing of this project.
