In the opinion of other Swift owners, is their ride quality a lil stiff too??
Am i posting the message in the right thread? I don't know if anyone has seen the message as yet. I would really appreciate a reply from someone in the know. Mods, should this be posted anywhere else or is this thread correct?

Sadly not much can be done to improve the ride quality, you can go for better tires oriented for ride like Michelin MXV8, go for 185/70/14 and your ride should become a tad better. Yes the ride is stiff, but then not much can be done. If you are ready to spend then you can go for blistein shocks.

Hi all,

I have a swift ZXi 50+k done on the odo. Now as my warranty period is over, I would like to do some mods on the car.....

Initially, I wanted to fit in an LPG kit to get a better mileage ( which is around 12/13 kmpl).

I also want some performance enhancement...

I am also planning to go for angel Eye ( I am not sure about the difference between angle eyes and projectors).....

And also the alloy changes ( I currently have the stock alloys)


Seniors, any suggestions??


Thanks

Default Endcan for swift

My Swift VXi clocked 5K and I am planning some basic modes. I have almost finalised Green Wind (cold air intake) as airfilter. Please let me know your comments. Also, I am planning a better end can. I know that a true performance difference can be extracted only by a good exhaust system, but changing the headers and all will void my warranty (I know someone with my dealer and he was OK with filter, but not headers and all). So I am postponing the complete exhaust system to a later stage. As of now, I am planning a good end can with decent note. Any good brand which is affordable? I am confused with lot of brands (mainly chinese/malaysian/taiwan types).

In my opinion stock tyres are the biggest shame on a swift. They are puny, slim and looks bad too. Swift needs a better shoe. My first mod on my VXi (4th day) was Alloys and slightly wider tyres and now feels way better in ride quality and handling.

i have come across a few swifts with these lights in Kolkata. these look much better than the after-market round ones IMO - but not quite common like the stock type

I saw a white VDi with the aftermarket tail lamps, which akshay has posted, must agree they look much much better in person then in pics, also they look better then the other aftermarket lamps which most of the Swifts are having.

Hey!
I have a Swift Zxi! As you'll know, it comes with all orange-ish display in the dials and the a/c control. Is there anyway I can change the lights from orange to say blue or white?
Thanks!
