As a mod i.e. fit & finish wise this looks like well executed. As for spending 40 L for it, to each his own but it would have looked better without the fake Lamborghini logos

Btw DC always puts his logo on all of his creations I didnt one on this car. So is it really a DC job?

And if the figure is true, i would like to hire the guy who sold this car. He sure knows how to make a sale.
well as this car was seen parked outside a accessory shop on vastrapur road, we went inside that showroom and asked the owner about this car, he confirmed its not his but his clients car which needs to do some music system work, brought from DC and the modification costs were 40L, may be the whole car including the cost of civic might be 40L and not for just modification, but details are shared as per that shop owner who's client owns this car.

Not doubting you buddy... I just feel the owner might be bragging a bit too much and inflating the cost, that's all.

I dont see any better way to waste dough. as Tejas says I think they may be exaggerating that it cost 40L. He could have bought himself a beamer 525 with that.
I think this fits in the weird and wacky mod jobs thread

Is it OK for DC to put Lamborghini logo everywhere?? I thought there were legal issues with this.

40 Lacs + cost of the car = half a crore flushed down the toilet.

The only thing that is worth seeing on the car are the alloys and the lambo decal's (what an insult to lambo's works of art). What a waste of money. I wont even ask for pics of the full car in this horrible mod job.

DC surely lives up to our expectations. Way to go DC.

ROFLMAO. Aahaha. 40L. Aahaha.

BTW, the car's regn. number (MH-01-AC) is from 1998. Any idea how? AFAIK, the Civic was launched in 2006, right..???

Maybe TBHPians should start a PETA. People for Ethical Treatment of Automobiles. I'm heartbroken whenever I see these massacres...

It's possible to transfer the registration number of your old car to a new one and get a new registration number for the old car. I have done it.

He should have bought a great car instead of spoiling a great design and putting Lambo badge on it.
