Congratulations... Awesome looking ride!!!

Also, if I may suggest... Do consider changing the current OVRM to the newer design (Body colored). IMO they look a lot better than current one on the ride...

Cheers!

Any good number plate will do. I would recommend Pandit ones but they are very expensive, try some designs in Lajpat & see what you like. Also, don't use that cheap plastic plate, get a good quality fibre one.

Don't put jet black sunfilm. Atleast as dark as possible (RTO Approved Limit).

@kpzen
I've been a Santro fan for a long long time now. The boxy design's always kind of appealed to me but IMO this paint job doesn't suit the personality the Xing. Sure it will turn head and is bling bling, but at what cost. Something more subtle would have been way better but then maybe bling appeals to some, to some it doesn't. Neat set of alloys though. PM the price and place you got them from if you can. My santro too needs a set.
cheers

That is simply an outstanding job. Please add a spoiler soon. It looks a bit incomplete without it.

Thats one hot looking santro. Great work KP.

Get the tail lights smoked in gloss. The matt finish doesnt gel with the car.
And get the internally adjustable side mirrors and paint that and the number plate garnish to match the car's paint. It should look good.

About the calipers and drums, yellow is looking fine. Maybe you can try silver/black, don't know how they'll look. Or paint the drums black and the calipers silver/black. The brake drum looks ugly, no matter what color you paint it in.

hey KP nice work on the Santro! sweet paint job. nice rubber! the S Drives look yummy! but i think you should have gone for a thinner spoked rim. to me this feels a bit bulky hence doesn't appear to be as big as th 14's could look on a santro. you could probably work on it as others have suggested.

anyways, I have a few suggestions -

* do try and get the tail lights smoked with a glossy finish. would totally go with the paintjob.
*also get the indicators on the sides smokes as well. the look feels a bit stock when it comes to the front.
*if you can also get out the Hyundai logo at the back, fill up the gap by levelling it off and painting it jet black like the rest of the boot it would really look more like finished.
*please get rid of the stock mud flaps! really kills the "look" of the tyres. you could get those "SPARCO" knock offs which are pretty decent and come in some appropraite colors too!!
*Are you planning to retain the stock grille? a nice mesh job in black would really work out to be a nice contrast.
*about the numberplate, well the regular embossed ones with the IND lettering, hologram etc would be clean cut and it does look standardised.

One of the most tasteful mods I have ever seen !!

Much more than just the sum of it's parts, your santro looks simply smashing. Do get a new mesh grill though, if you can get hold of one, and wouldn't the front door handles look better in red ?

Not a fan of santros but your car look HOT! Well done. Maybe you can do something about the lights and add a spoiler maybe.
