Cool Some more poison for my swifty

Got the racing tow hook installed ove the week end. Gives the drive a different look from the front.
Not too sure if someone will un-screw the stuff out of the bonnet when I leave it at the parking spots .

I don't see how that can be legal or even remotely safe. You will destroy someone's leg if you hit them with that.

Well never knew tow hooks are illegal in our country. With regard to human legs, I dont expect them to ever come anywere close to my drive. If they do, it is their mistake. the roads I use for my weekend drives are anyway not ment for legs, only wheels and more wheels.
I might poke a bumper of a crazy driver who applies brakes in front of me, I guess that is legal.

The tow hook though looks good, Gives the car a feeling that it is frequently towed.

Hey Sportsmind I seem to bump into your ride more often than not buddy!!

You stay pretty close to Ashoka pIllar and you are a member of the Platinum bodies as well right ? Since I don't think there's anybody around South bangalore with that kind of body kit on their swift!
If its Indeed You, how about You let me have a closer look at that racing hook during one of the weekends ?

The tow hook is attached to a strong part of the car's monocoque i assume? Well in that case you hit a car ahead you will destroy that car's bumper as well as the part of the monocoque the two hook is fixed to leading to structural damage which otherwise could've been avoided if you did not have that hook.

Smile Upgraded to Momo Corse

Finally got the long pending upgrade on the wheels. Managed to get the caliper paint job done during the install of the Momo wheels. Feels great to see my beauty with those new shoes on.

Frank Opinion.
Your car was much better earlier.
Sorry but thats my perception about it. But if you like it, then don't feel bad, everyone has their own opinion.

Hope you take it in good spirits
Cheers.

Appreciate your frank feedback on my drive. I might sport the old looks at some stage. Fashion & passion can always come back with a bang.
Cheers.
