Hi Chargerman, could you please tell me where you got the rear wiper from? And did you have to change the whole rear windscreen or did you make a hole in the existing windscreen itself? Want to install a rear wiper in my Swift too, but the Maruti folks are saying I need to change the windscreen to a ZXi one, which seems like overkill.

EDIT: Oops, I missed the location and thought it was India!
This is cool!

How?
Why?
From where?
What about RTO formalities?

Sorry for the stream of questions, but this is something unheard of, at least for me. We have seen engine swaps and countless mods but this is a clean way to get a better performing car. I had always dreamed of getting a Foreign spec SX4 to replace my Indian one as I always liked the car and the kit offered in other markets. And I want to know how a MASS or dealer reacts when he sees this car. Total sleeper for sure this one! More pics please?

Hey guys!
Okay so as this thread is specifically for swift owners i thought ill post this here. This is my first long write up so please bear with me if i have committed any mistakes and mods, please make necessary changes if needed.
First of all i own a 2007 Type1 SwiftP with a G13BB mill. Now i'm in my 4th year of engineering education and pursuing mechanical engineering. Our final year project is just around the corner and i had this idea of working on my car. The topic in my head right now is "Deriving maximum perfomance from naturally aspirated engine".
I do know that the Maximum power can be derived from a block by going turbo. But given our budget constraint of ~25k, it is not feasible. There is this wild idea now of designing a free flow exhaust or maybe analyse the already fabricated ones by our brilliant Indian tuners. I was glued to the free flow exhaust thread since over two months, not just on TBHP but also on any other websites which provided me with even a tiny amount of information. When i was going through the forum i was unable to find a solid graph showing the amount of performance derived by just mounting a CAI and a FFE. This wild idea is all about providing a ballpark figure of the actual gains.
To explain it all in brief :
1. Acquire or fabricate a FFE.
2. Install CAI.
3. If possible a custom remap or opt for a piggyback ECU. (I have no clue about how this will come under the budget but hopefully i find a way)
4. To test the whole setup. (i was thinking of dyno but the vitamin M constraint strikes again. Any alternatives?)
5. Has to be N/A.
Any kind of help or suggestions are welcomed. I now know how frustrating it is for petrolheads while modifying their cars because of so many alternatives to choose from. My brain is frozen right now.
Lemme know if my approach is correct or should i rethink this whole thing.

Thank you in advance guys!
Cheers!

Right track you are sure but do think of upgrading tyres brakes and suspension but then all that will cost more money. Then again these would be important as well.

Requesting T-BHP members to suggest a good mod shop in Chennai for replacing stock headlamps with projector headlamps along with DRL combo. Have searched the thread, but the shops mentioned is one year old. So, if anyone had done Swift headlamps mod recently in Chennai, kindly share the details (including cost of projector headlamps, DRL as well as labor cost if possible ).

Thanks in Advance.

You may try Jewajee car decors in Chamiers road near Park Sheraton or Speed freaks in Anna Nagar.

If you can then also try Retro Rides page on facebook. They have some amazing DRL + Projector designs for almost all the cars. The only issue is they are from Delhi. But they will happily ship to Chennai with insurance

Can you share a pic or details of the same? Is it a full LED kit (brake, reverse, indicator - LED or just the brake lights LED).

I think its LED are only for the brake. I dont have a pic, completely forgot to click a pic.

the brand was sonar. I think this was the model, attached the pic

For the mesh grill is quoting Rs 4500 which is ridiculous.
