New Head Lights, wish it would have been a red halo's i am not sure if i could open them up and change the led's.some how in the low beam the throw of the light is more to the right,can i adjust that in anyway.

Carbon Fiber Mini Style Hood, I would want to change the Air Intake from the Current Location (Next To Battery) to a place close to the hood scoop.only thing i am wondering is would it have any effect coz of the heat generated from the engine.

Also i heard from someone that the carbon fiber hood need to be clear coated every 6 months coz its going to turn yellowish coz of the heat from the engine,is it true ?

Attachment 198123

I still have'nt got a chance to work on the suspension yet.i have all the parts lying in my room, will start the work once dhussera is gone.will post more pictures soon.

Wow! all of them are looking great. Reminds me of the modded Civics at Vizag. Lots of auto enthusiasts at Vizag?

Freakrz - didn't face any problem with the KA plates at Vizag?

Sweet line up of swift’s man .
All of them look really good, the red one is best .Looks like its straight out desktop wallpaper or NFS game

Is both the exhaust in the swift functional?

I was looking at your alloys you seem to be missing the racing nuts.
Put them man it will be good add on .

That is one smoking hawt swift you've got there Freakz. Has to be one of the best in the country. But it looks a lil too tall now.it'll look great once the suspension goes it i guess.

Also, I've noticed similar group pix in a modded civic thread from vizag too. What gives?

Finally I have got the Lowering Springs and the Other Suspension parts Installed.I will let the Pictures do the talking.

I have got everything installed at the local maruti workshop here ,the technicians have been very helpful with the installation.

The Technicians trying to get it on the lift after the springs installed,it was so low they had hard time getting the arm's without hurting the kit.

Installed ULTRA RACING 2-Point Rear Lower Bar & ULTRA RACING 4-Point Front Lower Bar , the 4 Point Lower Bar is actually lower by another 15mm and i need to drive really cautious watching for the potholes and other stuff around on the road.

Comparison With a Friends Stock Dzire , Could'nt get hold of a swift,but i guess both are similar.

The 4-Point Front Lower Bar is visible under,check how low it is.i am quite not sure if i will be able to drive around with it but since the road's here are pretty good,not many potholes it should be manageable.

Intake.i haven't used the metal piping ,instead i got a rubber tubing for the filter.the rubber tube is actually a zen diesel's filter pipe.just a little bit of weight saving.

The filter is catching a lot of dust in its current location,i am planning to relocate it closer to the hood vent.

The Ride is very good,suspension is really stiff and there isn't any body roll and the its fun cornering,i could actually feel the road better and just scared about the front lower bar.

i would love to take it on the track sometime.i haven't actually pushed the car much yet,and track would be an amazing idea to test it out.

Twin exhausts (both seem to have carbon deposits)? What engine mods?

Brilliant decision. Guaranteed high quality of labour.

You'd have to be really cautious on typically Indian roads. Not only would you damage the lower bar, but it could damage other related components too.

The track would be IDEAL! I know the Bangalore boys are frequent track visitors. Why not plan something out and post your detailed observations versus a regular swift?

The lowered car looks great. Its made the car look even more aggressive. How is the ride quality now?? does the suspension bottom out faster than usual??

How much drop was mentioned on the springs?? since its a PRO-KIT the drop must be around 30MM I think.
