great work! but just look upon the panel gap between the tail light and the boot lid. matte black alloys would enhance the looks.

Its Type 1 Esteem M1000 Shape one, pre 98.
The old interiors were not impressive, so we decided to go for type 3 dash and door panels, was a bit difficult but we managed to do that.

Yogi bhai very nice ride,just wanted to say that also upgrade your number plates to high security embossed metal plates & also add some brilliant black matte vinyl on hood.

The car looks stunning in matte red.

As everyone here suggested, the alloys will look better coated in matte black.

There is a gap in between the right tail lamp and the boot, it doesn't look good. Rectify it and put a neat spoiler.

The interior is very bold and kinda like it, The red and black combination works out great


Planning to get a used esteem and modify it some time later in 2010. Have you guys got any idea which year esteem i can get for Rs 75,000. I am planning to get an esteem for 75k and spend another 75k on modifying it, is this justified

Hi, the car looks great. The pix doesnt do justice IMHO for a red matt finish. Hope you post more pix in future.

what's that accessory on the RHS of the bonnet?
