After having viewed those lovely tail lights, I am addicted to finding them so that I can install it when I am down this January. I'll let you know if I do manage to find it here in Dubai.

Thanks Mate. Let me know the details of the Tails. I'm interested.

Default Eureka!!!

Hi naveen.raju, I found these ones on a Swift here in Dubai. I followed the guy all the way (thankfully it wasn't an Arab lady) and when enquired the where-abouts of this tail lamp assembly, he said "Sharjah somewhere". Hmmm, I've my doubts if the car was even his with the way he was responding. Btw, hows it?

Note: Most Swifts out here are driven by the Arab ladies and when you see one around with dark tints, be sure not to mess with it. This one was similar but I kind of waited until the person came out of the car before approaching it .

Cheers
Champion

Thanks for your comments. I got these for 13k from Cochin and it's been almost an year now. Think it will cost you around 9-10k now. Am sure that this will be available in Mumbai. Did you check with the major accessories shops in Mumbai?

Oh. It's readily available here in Cochin. Had gone to some shops last week and two shops had them.
As am using the right set of HID's (4300k), I dont find any problem. If you are planning for these, go for 4300k HID's and that too go for only branded ones and please stay away from Chinese brands.

Thanks for your suggestions. Yea, I have plans of debadging the rear.
No engine mods as of now and I dont think I plan to do any in the future too. Cosmetic changes in the future, but having trouble finding the best one for my ride.

Hi Naveen, I am planning for HIDs in the fog of my swift. Is there a problem of protecting these in the monsoons, specially here in Kolkata where 1 feet deep waters are common during the monsoon season. Wont the water cause problems to the fog HIDs? Let me know your experience.

bunty, I havent installed HID's in fog. I use stock fogs. I was actually palnning to go for HID's in fogs but stayed away since i had a doubt whether it will actually stay dry during monsoon. Since it's well sealed like the HL, I stayed away. I have seen many cars here with HID's in fogs. If you install them really well you wont face any problem.

Still ,the front end looks bland.Putting back those suzuki logo would make it look better.It will have great contrast than the stock black grill.
Any plans for side skirts and front spoilers ??

Also ,I saw Vento in your signature .Keeping stock or modding out ??
