As Abbas suggested, the steering wheel should go.
Try and get something sobre in its place.

A nice red and black trim should gel well with the interiors.

Any plans to re-model the front.
Some good Rio Body Kits should make the car look a lot cooler.
How about some K&N for the boost!!!!
No offences but i hope you would have read before you posted, Yogi already has a K&N conical filter seen in the engine bay pic above, and Filter addition dosent give any significant "Boost" appart from making the air sucking adictive sound(which i love by the way). He is not looking to remodeling the front as of now.

Had the same problem in my esteem, I had changed 3 sets of front bumper lips, finally removed the entire kit. To increase the hight, i had put rubber spacers. The handling goes for a toss and there is a lot of suspension noise as well, changed 2 set of rear shocks after this.

Thanks for the comment bro. I agree the suction sound is tempting

I have the scraping problem when its loaded at the back.
I want to have a body kit , but the main issue being the entrance of the building, its too inclined, even this new twin tip muffler scrapes if the car is not moved slowly.

Finally the specs of the DBA 022SL/SR match our Indian Esteem!
How do i bring them, should i order them to Mumbai address or get them to Saudi from Australia and then get it down to Mumbai?
Will getting it shipped to India attract Duty kinda thing?

The best way is to hand carry it, Keep a copy of the invoice to show the customs guys its actual value. Do remember to keep a copy of the RC to prove that this is not for commercial purpose.

Yeah thats what i was thinking to do! but now things have simplified for me!
found on their webpage , they got dealers in Saudi Arabia, so i dont have to order all the way from Australia. Will ask at home to send me a scanned image of the RC.

Hi

Your car looks great. Just one question. Is the dashboard from the newer model a direct fit or there are any modifications required?

Great job done with the car.

Yes we have changed the dash board and door panels, in shor the interiors has been changed to the latest model esteem. Type I old interiors were not in good shape and had to be replaced , so decided to go the the latest. It is not a direct fit, loads of magazmari! but not impossible

One bad news is that the slotted brake rotors arent available in Saudi
So finally decided to just change the complete brake setup to Type II, no other option left.
