I stay at whitefield. I enquired for the same at BIMAL Auto, Whitefield road, Madhevpura. Any idea about painter/showroom for a good painting job in and around Whitefield which is worth the money i pay for? I guess 3000 is a way too expensive for wing mirrors and door handles. I remember getting a complete door and rear side(near Fuelcap) getting dented/panted from hyundai showroom for my accent at 3500 about 2-2.5yrs back.

Does the tail lamp light, blinkers and reverse lights visibly glow after this?

Yup, those are smoked tail lamps and Yes, all lamps glow visibly(well, with about 10 to 15 % reduced visiblity) after this. You can exclude the reverse lamp alone if you want more light while reversing.

1. Any special Paint that is used?
2. Is it done from inside or outside the tail lamp?
3. What about the clear coat that is mentioned above?
4. Ofcourse, the killer question - places in bangalore to get it!!

Sorry for firing so many shots in one go!!

1. You can use any spray on tint paint (like vht nightshade etc)
2. Outside
3. Clear coat is to get a glossy finish. Without the clear coat, it 'll look matte (something like this : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/990212-post133.html)
4. No idea.

Frankly, i have no idea about how the use of bosny would turn out to be. My cousin in the US used vht nightshade on his 350z and said it was looking pretty good.

Default Bi-xenons for swift

Guys,

Is this kind of Headlights available here in India? If not, how to source one like this in Bangalore.

Bi-Xenon HID Projector Headlamps and Turbo Kit for SWIFT - Suzuki Forums: Suzuki Forum Site

This looks cool and is a xenon projector with bulbs,balasts and et all.

Feel it will look good on my Ozone blue swift vdi. Looks less blingy than the flashy projectors which we see in India(In my opinion)

Your thoughts on this welcome.

@ramkris - These are not available anywhere. Moreover do you really want them, when the price is close to Rs. 40,000/set
