Karthik nice and unique choice of colour. Is it only me or the bonnet looks slightly elevated?

@team fiat, dude i suggest you scrap the idea, its become too common and personally don't think it looks nice. If anything you shud stay clear frum stickerin of any kind. ALthough you could put performance decals if you've done sumthin to ur ride. Colour of the decals cud be in both black or white since ur ride is red. Hope this helps

I think what you need to get first is a set of 17"ers

I saw two swifts with 17"spinners in bandra today, a red one(not the one with the rio kit) and a black one. I also saw a blue one with skirts and some really nice rims.

Congratulations Karthik the car looks really good!! And the pearl effect paint job is well done. However, the bonnet finish looks a little iffy, a work in progress?

Take good care of her this time & please get the correct upsize at the next tyre change.

Hey I too have seen that Black Swift with the Spinners opp. National College (It's the one opposite that corner Barista, isn't it?) Looks quite nice!

well, first of all, you have take out the headlamps and remove all the bulbs. you will see that the external transparent cover is glued to the rest of the headlight. heat that glued part, so that it starts to melt, and you can finally, remove the transparent cover the two parts are shown in the pic. then you can paint it, according to your taste....
