Someone said you get those models as optional from showrooms.

Oh ok maybe but these are what are available at hyderabad from your list,

Reverse sensors,
Pioneer Head Unit,
Sun film.
14-in alloys.
Leather seats
Leather steering cover.
Electronin sunroof.
Rear parcel tray

The sunroof sucks. But Guys, tell me how does a white roof look on the swift? Does it suit it? And i thought of the black vinyl sticker at the bottom wheel arches, i dont think it goes with the car that well.

So what do you guys say, will that white roof along with the vinyl sticker suit the swift?

If does, just imagine a silver swift with a black top !!!

Default Yet another one...

well, just saw this "decently" done up swift in vasai today- no extra "bling-bling", just about enough; the only thing this guy has done is paste some graphics on his ride - the car doesn't even have alloys. but it looked pretty decent to me.....

Agreed, the original 'Z' might have been taken out by someone or fallen off.
But why would someone buy a VXi and then pay through their nose for those boring and common maruti alloys when u could get much better ones at half the cost.
And why on earth would someone buy and put a rear wiper & a defogger.

those alloys are similar to the one's i have on my GTI (check out my bhp garage)...i've got 18inchers with low profile tyres. Most pics of the swift that you have put here are from europe where the cars are lower than in india and have lower profile tyres and larger dia rims (17"), thats why they look so hot. So basically your car is so close to being that hot
I think the DC Swift was a pretty good job. Well whether you like the paint scheme or not is a different thing, But larger dia. wheels are definitely the first thing you might wanna do with this car.

One ? for you guys though. Do we get good after market suspensions in INdia and which company makes those? In India you deal with different kinda roads both rough as well as smooth , and you don't wanna shatter your spine with a lowered suspension if u drive on all these type of roads. But if u'r an absolute freak about modifying it, then I'd suggest just leave her untouched from the inside and outside cosmetically, performance wise just lower the car by putting tauter suspensions (if available) and bigger diameter wider rims. I mean for whatever power the car delivers it'll be GREAT fun to drive and faster and tighter around corners than stock, more safer too. Just suggesting what I'm doing with my car here. May or may not work out there depending on availibility of suspension. After that cold air intakes (which most of you have K& N) and cat-back exhaust. Or even a simple 4-2-1 exhaust fabricated specially for your car by a good auto-shop (no cat-conv. though and won't pass pollution test) give your puc test before mods

Good Luck.

no way this is not a decent mod...
1] look at the graphics on the side , what are those ? waves ? even if they are they look as if they should on the side of "mickey mouse" or "Donald duck's" car or on the side of a waterbottle or lunch box ....
2] look at the stripe in the middle of the hood ... if it is a racing stripe it should be wider if it is a single strip or there should be two ...this guy has not seen what racing stripes look like or has a vague memory of what racing stipes are..
personally, I feel the whole thing looks very ugly.

Forgot to mention the tyres. Those are street performance tyres, track tyres are even flatter without any grooves. For instance check out the advan/yokohama tyres website. http://www.advan.com

Regarding that exhaust i'm guessing it should be a 4-2-1-2 exhaust. pipes split into 2 after the catalytic converter.
