Why is the significant difference in price ? I know aditya sourced his piece from Mahaveer in GP Road.

@nitrous: Can you tell me which shop you are referring to ? I have been wanting to get my baby a new pair of clear headlights as well !

Of course it is for a pair. This is not a fiat.

Hey bro, I have just one suggestion to make. Change the color of B-Pillar to black by using trim kit, it will look really nice.

Can anybody guide me where can I do this in Pune ?

theres two ways to do that.. one you can use black vinyl (at any place that does number plates) and 2ndly you can get that section painted black with a matt clear.

But bro, what about factory fitted carbon fibre used normally on b pillars of cars ?

Are they not available on esteem ? Because I think vinyl wont look that good. :-?

Thx for observation bro. Few more questions:

1) How Vinyl is applied at the back side of the B Pillar ?

2) And anybody from Pune, where it can be done, professionally ? Please guide me regarding this. :-)

Hey Pune guys, where are you ? ;p

Anyone, please tell me is there any difference between "Vinyl or Radium" work for B pillar of car, are they both same ?

And does the "Bund Garden guy" near Yerwada bridge (who does number plates ) can do it or at least sell me the required radium or vinyl stickers ?

The basic difference between vinyl and radium.

The radium is shiny and it will reflect against the light

The vinyl is like matt finish and it doesnt shine against the light.

Now coming to your second point, I dont know about the bund garden guy but I use to get these vinyl sheets from nana peth in wholesale price. I am gonna get black for me on this weekend to cover my esteem vxi (perl silver). I am gonna do it myslef and will post some pics.
