Dude... no offence, since doing up your car is a matter of personal taste... but have you ever heard of the old adage 'less is more'?

If you want to go in for flames, check if you can get ghost flames painted by somebody.

Here you go. Something similar to this except on black. They should be very light in shade.

If I am not wrong, ghost flames are usually done in light grey.

Nevertheless, I think for flames/tribal images to look effective, they ought to be airbrushed and pinstriped which I guess is an expensive proposition in India. Vinyls, if not of good quality, will ruin your car.

Instead, concentrate your resources on getting the bumper design fixed as SRK portrayed and get some dark window tints. Best of luck

EDIT: The flames done by BBS in the previous post look great but I don't think vinyls can replicate the same effect. I hope I am wrong.

Hey jakky, your swift is starting to look real hot. I think after you change the bumper its gonna look better but I don't know if vinyls are a good idea. They always seem to look better in nfs than in real life. I think headlights, taillights and xenons should be a higher priority than flames... But that's just my opinion ^^

personally ive always felt the swifts desgn elements are spot on.. most of it looks good as it is.. its just the bits like the wheels tyres n paint selection u need to look into...
id always prefer it this way than go OTT and get bored with what u have after a few months and end up regretting having spent a ridiculous amt on the car...this may sound cliched.. but your rides gotta be a natural extension of ure personality...if u drive sumthing that looks like its straight outta starwars..u better have sumthin to do with darthvader....

I had no clue Apple had started making side doors for Maruti. I guess during a recesion you have to make whatever sells. Does it run OS10.5?
