Hey Guys, it costed me 50000/- for the side skirts bumpers and spoiler with painting. Alloys costed me 17000 for a set of 5. Projector set up costed me a whooping 15000, as i had to buy a seconds laura and octavia headlight and remove the projectors and get them fabricated. The projectors took me a year. The spoiler is yet to be fitted. I am also getting a pair sparco replica seats in the front for 20000.

The work took around a months time for the bumpers and skirts and spoiler

Personally I hate the front and rear bumper a bit too weird for my taste.
Projector setup look nice. Also could have done a better job with the mesh grill you retained the "S" logo nice. Like that part.

What tyres you have ?

Which makes me wanna ask this question.
Looking at NFS's garage its a 1995 Zen, now its 2010.

A 15 year old car/bike should get itself road tested and "certified" again by you friendly neighborhood RTO, right ?

In that case how come the engine swap was managed ?
This thing unlike the E and B zens is really easy to spot.

NFS, care to answer this ?

The rear view is kickastic! Smoked tail lamps would make it even more so.

Please don't spoil the looks with sticker crap.

If the skirts and bumpers are to look good in the current avatar; you may have to get a lowering job done! The lip on the front bumper is far too large in the current trim; I feel the lips and grill outer need a matt black finish to complete the looks as it is.

Cheers mate! You have a nice ride there

One of the best modifications one can do to the Zen is to take out and throw away the bad AC system it has and install the Alto AC system in it. Haha!!!!!

1320/- inclusive of taxes for a single internally adjustable mirror.

Normal ones (non-adjustable) around 900/-

True man ac is quite poor at the back but then if the windshield has a sunfilm then it might just workout great as the cooling will be faster.
