Hey Naveen the car looks great, can be add couple of more things

1) A rear spoiler
2) Also I think you are missing a plastic mud flap that would definitely change the look

Also do post the cost incurred for

Alloys - 15" Stamford
Tyres - Yokohama S Drives 205/50/R15
Single full CCFL Projector Lights with 4300k HID (Motorized Auto level)
Custom Front mesh grill (Upper and Lower)
Custom Front bumper lip (Pics coming soon)
Interior Neons
Roots Horn (Skoda Type)
White LED (Rear number plate and side blinkers)

+ the pics of bumper lip, interior and side blinkers

Thanks Ranji:

Planning to go for the LED tails lights first. Then maybe spoiler. I had plans of GTi sports kit. But currently dont have the budget. So will hold off the bodykit.

I had removed the mud flaps as I didnt like it and kinda cuts the view of the wide tyres from behind.

Here are the details:

Alloys - 15" Stamford (around 17k for 4 wheels)
Tyres - Yokohama S Drives 205/50/R15 (Around 16k for 4 tyres)
Single full CCFL Projector Lights with 4300k HID (Motorized Auto level) (13.5k)
Custom Front mesh grill (Upper and Lower) (2.5k)
Custom Front bumper lip (Pics coming soon) (2k)
Interior Neons (260)
Roots Horn (Skoda Type) (450)
White LED (Rear number plate and side blinkers) (around 150)

Removed the bumper lip, interior neons

205/50-15 is the wrong size for a Swift. 4.7% speedo error. Why didnt you go in for 205/55-15?

Yep. . Just wanted that bling factor.
This is mostly city driven and very rarely taken for long drives. So went in for 205/50/15

205/55-15 would have given you the same bling. Moreover you are compounding the already present 6kmph speedo error.

Anybody know about the LED tail lights. I happened to see a modded swift yesterday with the same LED tail lights that I plan to install. To my surprise, this isnt a full LED kit. Only the brake lights are LEDs while the indicators are normal bulbs. I saw some videos on Youtube of these tails and they had full LED's.

Any help guys..!! Where can I source them..?

Thanks Rocky. I have left him a message.
I was actually looking for the something similar to this. But this current model got only LEDs on brake and the indicators and others have normal bulbs. Have seen few mods with full LEDs. Any help on these??

The LED tail light looks elegant. Try to get in touch with @Noidaboy or @M4UGR8 as @noidaboy has this on his swift.
