Momo Revenge has become very common, but your S-Cross looks sweet . It really goes well with white body colour. How's your car doing?

In my experience, you should not worry about the drilling. I had spoiler fitted after drilling in two of my cars
1. Chevy UVA - 8.5 yrs and counting. Still no issues of leakage /rusting/fitment/rattling
2. SCross 1.6 -1 month and No issues.

For both the cars, I got them fitted from ASC.

Many thanks for the compliments. Car is doing great (touchwood). Yes, the revenge is a bit common but not with the Scross. Besides of all the designs, I felt this fitted in best.

You'll need to go aftermarket. OE ones can't fit.

I don't think Maruti will offer any such as an accessory.

You can buy the projector headlamps from any MGP store. It would cost around 45K. Maruti service guys would say it's not possible most of the times. Kashyap has installed Alpha projector headlamps on his Zeta (Baleno). All you need is extra wiring harness/relay. But I do not think it's worth spending around 50K. Also the output of stock projector is just average. You can retrofit a good quality after market projector from Xenon Planet / Morimoto.

I am also planning to visit 3M to get the upper half body wrapped and apply PPF on some particular areas. The spoiler comes unpainted and they paint it to the color of the car before installing it, so I had asked the dealer to paint the spoiler black instead of white. Regarding the ORVMs, will check out the black cover available with the dealers as Dr.Naren pointed out.
24K for the entire work - front trapezium, top half black and the rear view mirrors. I had the spoilers painted black from the showroom itself. Had used the satin black wrap - which I felt matched the black body material of the scross in both colour and texture.

I had installed the spoiler painted in black (was part of the free accessory offer). Its only 2 months, so cannot comment on the issues which may arise in the long run, but there is no rattling or shaking.

Many thanks for the pics. Any idea how much it costs and the time frame to get the spoiler (painting and installation)?

I was quoted around 8000 Rs ( with black paint) and 1 day work. But dad was dead against drilling. So I did not go for it. With great difficulty, I had convinced him for 1.6

Wow that's almost equivalent to the cost of getting your bumper painted. I just checked Ajay's ownership thread and he got it done for 5k but in white color though.

Rs. 5500/- including painting and it took one day for the installation.

I just called up my RM to confirm. He said it's 4500 Rs including paint . I do not know why I was quoted 8000 Rs 6 months back.

Hi,

can you please post a side profile of your car. Would like to see how the spoiler looks from the side.
