i have a limited edition esteem... can i get the front clear lens headlamps, indicator lamps and rear tail lamps installed? will it involve any modifications to the body like cutting/drilling?

sorry for an question, i want to also know if the rear spoiler in the limited edition esteem is drilled to the boot...

can i get an aluminium GT spoiler fitted in the same way as the original spoiler? I do not want to cut or drill the body in any way as of now...

Yes, You can change the headlamps and tail lamps and the indicators to the new esteem clear set without any mods.
regarding the spoiler, yes it is drilled to the boot.
And the answer is yes again for the aluminium spoiler.
If you have an existing spoiler, find the right one that covers the holes.
Else if you do not have a spoiler, it would require drilling to fit the same.

The headlamps of the current esteem ie; (the facelifted ' NEW ESTEEM- fall in love again')..can be fitted to the type 2 esteem which was introduced in 1998. They have the same size and design...
I am referring to the 1st Esteem, ie; the car with the same Maruti 1000 front end and headlamp.
