Default Modded Ikons!!!

Seen very few Ikons that are modified. Here are some of them. They may have been posted in different threads. Since there is no seperate thread for them, I just went ahead and made a new one.

N1 Engineering


Team FS


Is this DC?!

The silver and red ones are simply not very good. Actually the silver one's bodykit is good, but the wheels are two sizes too small......

The wheels on the red Ikon won't look good on any other car.

Anyways, here are the pics of the first three cars.

N1 Engineering:This is the best among these. Has good wheels too.


Team FS Ikon: Never liked that hood vent.


The Silver Ikon: Check out the stickers on the front and rear windshield. The front bumper is sick.

the blue ikon looks good but the rims could have been one size bigger with lowprofile tires... would have given it much more sportier look..

WOW! The N1 Engineering's ikon bodykit is the best of the lot. The wheels and the hood are vavroom!
Did you notice the front bumper of the N1's ikon...it says NOS... does it really have a NOS kit installed?

godspeed.

Hi,

It has a NOS and a whole lot of other mods, but the car is more of all show and no GO.

Larger rims and lower profile tyres exceeding the tolerance levels, are good in pictures, not in real world. Am sure the guys had done enough research before upsizing their tyres.

In Ikon, 14 inch alloys are optimum.

The N1 Ikon looks best, wonder how it performs though. The red one looks very odd, and something's seriously wrong with the looks of that car.

The N1 rear and side skirts with the basic SXI bumper in front would be a gr8 combination. Any idea how much the rear & side skirts mods would cost???

Had spotted a modded Ikon here in Bangalore..near Koramangala. But I wasnt able to get any pics 'cos I didnt have a cam. I caught me totally unaware...zoomed past me...tried to catch up but the guy was no match for me.

the ikon from N1 engg looks good compared to the others, especially the rear end . the red ikon with huge tyres look very MACHO, but ride n handling n the whole composure of the car would suck big time.
