AFAIK, the Subros made compressor (for the type 1 Zen) was available for around 11k.

I think that black door handles still go well with the Zen; of course that is subjective. Post some interior shots too.
Hi, got some time today to clean the car and take some pics.
I agree the black door handles would have been better because of the contrast

What is the widest tyre available on 13" rims for the zen? Would like to go for the widest possible option which does without risking tyre rub.

Not sure about the widest option, my friend has 175/60R13 in his stock rims without rubbing issues.

Hey , can some one please elaborate whether the rims seen on this car are OEM or Aftermarket? Model is a '02 zen.

I came across this picture while browsing the internet and do not own the car in the picture.

Zens mainly had three type of rims.

1. At launch, they had 13 inchers, but in a different shape(round holes)

The Zen Modifications Thread-1280px1993_maruti_zen_001.jpg

2. Facelift in 1996 saw them moving to esteem style rims. They were 13 inches rims with flower type holes(internally called as boomerang holes).

3. MPFI Zen came in 12 inch rims, with round holes

4. The Zen facelift VXi has the same 12 inchers with same design, but in black color.

Would anyone be able to confirm whether the Zen Type 1's front grill would fit the Zen Minor? Mines the Minor i.e final model before discontinuation.

Since you are cash strapped for the moment, I would advise you to do the bare essentials, IMO, would be
1. Get the minor dents on bonnet etc cleared, get a good polishing job on the paint. Since its a dark paint, it would sparkle and stand out if you did a paint refinement on it. You can take help from some known paint shops by the road side or depend on professionals like 3M.
2. Get the Bumper body colored. Matching it would be a challenge as the original paint on the car is old, a good painter can do it.

Thanks, but my post that you've quoted was from years ago. Since then I've moved on from the humble Zen. Thanks anyway.
