I am glad that with your help on the topic not just me but many other got idea to make their priced possession look and feel even better.

@Mods thanks for renaming the thread to "The Zen Modifications Thread", the earlier one sounded very selfish.

Guys thanks your pics as well. Your cars look great and i love to see people keeping their rides in this good shape.

All the best and as always keep all your suggestions,comments, feedback and pics commin.

Thanks again.
"THE ZEN MODIFICATIONS THREAD" Finally a thread dedicated to zen cheers:

APPLAUSE to Zenster hope this thread stays active..

@MissionAlber

I've seen Zens with spoilers similar to Trivo of NFSU with integrated stop lamp. It does look good, I must say.

The other ones would look rice but a CF spoiler will go well with the black bumpers of your car.

Hi team,

I own a '97 model Zen. What is the average effeciency of a Zen? On the highway, FE has detriorated to 17 without AC. Of course, i manage to do a cool 110-120 on the highway. The engine is in good shape. Done 92000 on the odo. Any suggestions on improving the mileage or am I getting the right kind of mileage?

Thanks much,

I agree that Zen was the best product from Maruti. It can be made to look good with very subtle changes. I'd put on 14'' rims and smoked the tail-lamps. This alone made quite a difference IMO. Some pics for you guys to agree or disagree with me.

Some pics are before tinting the tails and 1 is after.

Has anyone gone for fender flares on the Zen? I think rev_hard's zen is begging for it. Those are 195/45/r14's right?

z klasse’s Zen has it. Who will do it in Bangalore?

Hey Badboyscad and tidzter, Here are a few pics besides the ones pasted earlier, you guys can assist me with.
What i'm looking for
Rear: Placing the number plate on the right corner next to the taillight on the dickie door and the Zen logo from the new estilo minus the estilo though on the left next to the taillight. Of course light tints on the tail lamps. Mesh on the place where the current number plate is. A small spoiler similar to ones on the NFS pics.
Front: Mesh in the hollow section in the bumper with the Number plate shifted to the right side similar to the back (like the one on the Wagon-R front). with tinted lights.
Help me Photoshoppers !!!
Any other suggestion are always welcome.
