Default My Maruti 800

Guys,
This is my Maruti 800. It is a late 1999 model. This car is equipped with "American Racing" alloys and "Michelin Tyres". I have this car in this condition for the past few years. This is company paint and the rest of the car is in "Stock" condition.

Amazing man!

One suggestion friend. Try changing the glass tints to brown, it will look killer

Superbly Maintained car dude. As suggested by shreyasma,the regular dark tinits would look killer. Any mods in place / planned?

Thanks So Much,Shreyasma,Sushrutha, Kannan and Sanjay. I got your point. I had black films earlier(I will try to post those pics too), I had changed them to good reflective Silver few months back. It serves me well in the hot sunny days and night vison from inside the car is clear and light. Now since it's post summer season, I can think about changing it to black now

Hi Sanjay,
Nope buddy. No modifications planned. I had plans for a FFE,but again its just a 800. I have a bigger car which is slightly modded. I have to accept this car the way it is . I use this car in place of my bike ;P

This car is posted in the Show off Alloy wheels thread as well. Anyway looks good here too . I said it there and will say it here, change the tints mate. We have a M800 too in our garage, 1996 model, done around 27K kms. Can you tell me where to get those wheels from ? And yes, the cost too. Also, are those 13 inchers ?

How much did these alloy wheels cost you? What make & specification? Curious to know as i'm planning for an upgrade from the stock ones.

Excellent maintained car. Few suggestions:
1. Change headlights to the one in the latest model.
2. DIY: Paint the front grille (only net) in Chrome/Silver. Check about BOSNY Spray paints (Abt Rs 275 a can). But keep the the border black. (I'll post pic of one such car in my socity compund, if you insist)
3. Use matt black sticker tape & cover the area below side mouldings on the doors. So that you have all round black bottom side (In line with bumpers. easy try out is use ordinary craft paper to have an idea of the new look & then if you like the look, go for the tape)
