Auto-themed home accessories & other cool stuff - Automania (Prabhadevi, Mumbai)
Pic Source: Facebook
A big shoutout to Moderator Aditya for finding this place. Thanks for sharing, man!
• Die-cast scale models of cars and bikes.
• Auto-themed accessories (Aluminium gearshift knob umbrella, Engine cylinder pen holder, wheel nut ashtray etc.).
• Alloy wheels and other customisation products.
• Help with importing body kits and other accessories.
What I like:
• The variety of scale models available. This includes vintage cars, race cars, rickshaws, trucks, popular Indian cars and even MotoGP bikes (Rossi fans would like the collection).
• Themed accessories are super c-o-o-l. A wider range of accessories and scale models which aren't available in the store can be ordered in from Autoartmodels official website at a discounted rate.
• Good customer interaction; well-read and decent people to deal with.
What I don't like:
• You will need to follow-up on the accessories which are going to be ordered in from the website. Takes time for them to come in (as they're imported).
• Since they don't have customers flooding in the shop all the time, their timings are lenient. So, call up before you visit the store.
• The store doesn't have a lot of accessories on display, mostly just the scale models. Hence if you want something urgently, that won't be possible.
Pricing: Auto-themed accessories are expensive.
Speciality/USP: I visited the store for scale models & accessories and found lots of those. I can't really comment on the car customisation services of the store. Though they were the ones who provided the vintage cars for the Bollywood movie Rustom (Related Link).
What I have bought from them: Some of the themed accessories which were ordered in as they weren't in stock (Brake disc clock, V10 Engine name card holder, Gearshift knob paperweight, Piston pen holder).
