Hey Edmund. I don't have anything left to say about your car... as everyone else said everything that had come to me mind!!!

About the mirrors. I have seen a couple of ones like what you want on some amby's here. I'l try finding out more about it.

Any thought about putting a small and classy spoiler on your car? Preferably like the ones found on the old santro zip (if i'm not wrong).

Godspeed.

Alok.

I like the look Ed and I am sure a deeper front air dam would look good but as v1p3r pointed out it's too big. Reduce the size to about half of what it is right now in the photoshopped picture with a mean matt black grill and I am sure it will look very menacing! The idea of the side-mounted number plate is also superb!

P.S. I stumbled onto this topic late but have to congratulate you on the great job done. Also the detailed photography needed to make such a detailed report requires a lot of effort and hats off to you for that. I had my car redone some time back and had taken some photos but after seeing your report I regret not being able to take so many photos at each stage and making such a detailed report.
Anyways keep up the good work and waiting for the performance mods!!!

Default Facing this problem often with M800


HI ALL
I have a M800 1999 model, i went on a long drive on the way i encounterd a hump which i couldnt make out IN THE DARK, and i heard 2 huge thuds.
I feel because of the low height of M800 humps might have hit the chassis, i dont know where it hit the car, please suggest an idea by
which i can increase the height of car so that these small humps do not touch the car chassi. i do not face this problem with other cars. how do i check for any damages. shockabsorbers in M800 seem to very soft
is it advisable to increase the height of shocks.

SO IAM FORCED TO RIDE SLOWLY IN 30KMPL.
regards,
Pavan

Hi Edmund,
Thanks for the info, do you mean santro tires and

wheels. Can i use 165/70 R13 or anything better.
What have you used for your car.
Thanks,

Even though I have seen this before, it gives me a thrill to go through the pics and see the transformation.
You have been able to get exactly what you want in the finished product !!!
