Hey you missed out the NOT , I assume.



@jakky88
A very "daring" mod to the swift, if I may take the liberty of saying so !! You could have spent the same money on alloys & wider tyres IMHO.




Cheers

I would say, its a very "different" look, something not very pleasant to look at but at the same time you cannot stop looking, its definitely hatke.

And honestly, if you get some good alloys and rubber, the appearence would change drastically and would look totally out of this world.

BTW, the thread started in Aug and everybody missed this mod

You will sure look different on the road mate but not because you're driving a beauty or a beast!

You might consider getting the bumper re-done.

You asked for the comments and you are getting them. So I am sure you are not taking offence.

Is the work incomplete ? Or is this the way it is gonna be?. then It really looks hideous!!.

Hi Jakky,

The new look is real devilish. Don't take me wrong. I like that. Put Michellin wide tyres with side ways button slit and fit the silencer an end piece to give out racing car sound.

You will see the eyes turn on the road.

It's Bold! I'll give you that. The workmanship is excellent! but the design is jarring with the rest of the car.

would definitely like to know where in CBE this was done.

Another suggestion,
we have very helpful BHPians who do wonders with photoshop. You could post in the photoshop thread asking for help and they would put your ideas into pics, giving you a feel of the results to come, before you actually go out and spend your money.

Look like a good workmanship..but somehow the design does not appeal to me. How did you envisage this concept? Any source or your imagination?

@Badboyscad

could you try the new Audi grill, with a black fine mesh background and chrome checkerboard pattern detailing?

but instead of making it one big grill to the bottom, can we restrict it to the level of the 3rd black line from the top? and give a smaller air dam below?
