Have you considered a pair of black roof rails? I think it will go well with your car.

IMHO, roof rails on an esteem will look really weird, but a subtle spoiler will add to looks.

thats exactly what i was about to say. roof rails may look good on hatchbacks(wagon r, etc), station wagons (marina, adventure,altura etc) and SUVs, but NOT on sedans.

hmm. i dunno much about ice. but im running it in my getz and it seems to be pretty good. though probably not as good as a 75.4. and getting a 75.4 would be tough now i think.

frankmehta-the car's looking great,but i feel the left side fog lamp is not in line with the bumper,looks like its jutting out slightly from the left side,or is it the picture that makes it look like that?please, please dont ever put a roof rail on an esteem.

i think the fog lights are not looking that good in this bumper. might think of placing clear lens ones that fit well. also thinking of painting the mesh white! please give me your opinions on that.
also going for the AV expo at NSE goregaon this weekend and will see if i can pick up a GZ sub for any discount. will soon post an update on that.
the next upgrade will be a good amp. but thats in phase 2.
phase one involves replacing the fogs, painting the mesh(whatsay?) and getting a nice sub!

I think white mesh might make it too obvious. black is more subtle. otherwise you can go for a light grey or something
