Will post some pictures of my car with all these details by evening today.
I have already added white LED strip on the roof mounted lights (Both of them, see pictures). I think I have used a strip with 18 LEDs in cabin light.
Will post some night time pictures.

I am waiting to see your pictures, as I am looking for LED decors. I appreciate more details too, pricing etc. Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,
I fully utilized my TRS(a political party)given day off today. Here goes the pictures as promised.
The Picture should explain the 'show'!
AgBenny,
The costs for Door opening blue LEDs are Rs.500 all inclusive. My car colour being black was not so visible in the night times and had couple of cyclists/two wheelers come too close to the car when the door was open. So, the need of the LEDs on the doors!!

Some more to follow!!

nice to see some fresh new pics
lovely stereo system in the first and nice lighting in the second.

benny,
how good is the lens you've attached at the rear windscreen?? does it aid in parking visibility? is it fold able for those long highway drives or does it just stay there?
thanks in advance

Hi Offroadie, Let me take this question as i guess you got the name wrongly addressed to Benny. The Lens on the rear windscreen is a great help both in city driving and on the highway too. Incity- for parking, seeing who is close to the cars rear etc, highway-pull the image in full to see who's behind you and in the night especially, the lights of vehicles following you is visible in one view. I do not remove it, it just stays there and does not interfere in driving.

Venom rider, good pictures, i agree the tyres look aggressive and apt!

Hey GetSurya, Can you put up some pictures of how those door open LEDs are installed and where they are put on the door. 500 for a set of 4 or for one piece?

The LEDs are wired through the door pads to the door switches. All 4 of them costed me Rs.500 at a 'friends shop'.

Hi Nvldr,I had these alloys changed from the stock ones which came with the VLX model when I purchased this car in July,08 at the dealer before delivery. I returned the OEM alloys and paid Rs.5000 extra for these. Ofcourse, the dealer tried to tell me that the warranty would be void for TPM etc, I told him nothing doing as I did not like the OEM alloys on the ride. Neither the warranty is void nor I have any problems with TPM. So cool!

"Disd" I get it repaired, no, not yet but this weekend is the D-Day, the Dent-Day.
And yes, about yesterday's topic, have not been able to find any good pre owned vehicle? PM me in case you are ready to do a search and take the plunge. No point holding back your adrenalin for long.

For all you know, it might just stop getting generated
