WOW!
Nice cars.
I like the Bulgarian look of the silver one.
Must say the photography skills are a class apart, specially with silver car.
Great job on all 3 cars.
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers.

Mayank,

38k is a bit on the higher side !

What is the price quoted for the Hikari Kit without the painting and fitting ?

AFAIK, painting (assuming its a single color paint job) and fitting should not cost you more than 6-8k considering the 4 pieces that come with the kit.

About 6 months back, I had enquired with a dealer regarding the price of the Hikari Kit alone and he quoted a final price of 19k after bargaining. I did not go in for the Hikari kit in the end, but seems like the pricing given to you is on the higher side.

what the....?
I thought maybe its the new in thing, thats why it seemed expensive.
I did a quicjk check right now, someone else(vendor, not user) told me 34 k.
and now 19k, round it off to 20k, add 8 k for painting.
28k.

somebody know somewhere in delhi where this can be done, please?

anyway, was to be expected.
the first price is always on the highside, just wish these guys gave a price which i could at least negotiate on, rather than something which just chases you out of their sight.

Mayank,

I suggest you try to source the Hikari Kit first. Do not ask for a combined quote for both the kit and the painting+fitting. That is where they conceal the margin.Contact a few dealers who deal with the kit and compare the price of the kit each one has quoted. Source it directly after bargaining hard and you will be amazed at the price variation. Talk to a few auto body shops and get their quotes for the paint job and fitting. It maybe quite difficult to run around, but I feel its worth 10-12k saved in your pocket !

You can try contacting Autopsyche for the body kits. Pasting the address from the tuners section.

Autopsyche
2109 D.B.Gupta Rd,
Karol Bagh,
New Delhi 110 005.
+91.124.400.3444
+91.98105.18681

This is a link to Performance Zone : Bodykits

Try bargaining. Search for more dealers. Take your time and get the best price and then make the purchase.

I have PMed the details to you. Contact the person and you can ask for custom kits created to your specific requirements or the ready-made kits. They will get you brand new ones or even used ones.

I would suggest a custom kit over a Hikari Kit which is found in plenty on the roads. Something good yet different for your money.

Thanks for the PM .

I am currently running the GTI kit on my car. Which was installed a couple of years back. I Like the LED on the Hikari kit gives the effect of DRL so thought will upgrade the bumper once again .

Cheers

Hi All,

If you like the DRL aspect alone, why not order a set of DRL's online and get them installed. Why go in for the whole kit ?

I would stick to ABS. From what I have read, I think it is a more reliable material compared to FRP(Fibreglass). You need to verify that and the cost involved.

@ mayankk & degenr8 :
Check out CAR CUSTOM PEOPLE on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pages/CAR-C...E/212596877922.

They have the entire ABS Hikari kit for sale at 22k. Negotiate. If both of you are planning to get the same, you guys should club and place the order together to get some discounts. I guess it can be shipped to each of you individually.

Dude, IMO, these doors are actually worthy of show off!!.. Scissor doors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They are neither weird or whacky.

Well, If I can get access to a practical, reliable, non-squeaky workmanship, then I would definitely be going in for one of these!!..

I just didnt know where else to put it

I am not sure of practicality because the Indian traffic is always a sandwich of bikes between cars. And as far as
workmanship: I am sure he is having a tough time during ingress and egress because I saw him in action.
reliability : No comments as a by-watcher. IMHO it was definitely not giving any such impressions.
non-squeaky : As this part goes,I could hear the hinges crying even when I was well over 2m away from the car.

End of the day, the mod suits the Swift like glove in hand. If only maintained well these doors can definitely make MSIL think of getting some Limited Edition models having such cosmetic.
