Dhruv!!!!

I saw Performance Auto in Sector 2 Noida making a full kit on a ZEN with 1" spacers on each side, with proper fibre wheel arches. The ZEN had a custom paintjob and a lot of other things done on it. You could contact Raj Kapoor there.

well i've read that automech makes more or less standard exhausts, while viper is the guy you want to go to if you have specific needs! and i have heard good reviews of viper performance! i want an exhaust for low-mid range, for better drivability in the city and i want it totally silent below 2-3k rpm! and i am also also very particular about the kind of sound i want!! :-p

AFAIK the Mumbai Automech guys do care of what the customer needs....
I've seen a couple of their exhaust with same features as u need....It still working n doing great job after 3 years of rigorous highway drives...

Man If u plan to get freeflow system , Automech is the best my modded Fiat had one and I plan to get headers from them for my swift too, But I have never used their mufflers I always got mine from abroad what u can do is get the headers from them and install with the headers an imported Muffler like HKS or Megaflow then see the diffrence, by the way where can I get a good Spoiler for my swift like the one on the white and blue swift pic

dhruvy! we have three santro's and an OHC running Viper FFE! Also the exhaust growls after 2500 RPM only under that there is a deep low humm. If you are peculiar about the SOUND then u can go in for a aftermarket endcan/muffler there are loads of them around for SWIFT!

His car looks very good in bright sunlight...

Was surprised when i saw his car in another colour...

Actually, started following the car without knowing it was his car... Then only noticed the number plate...
