s0uljah- fit one only if the santro is your second/optional ride. fitting one on your daily drive could get tiring; although it feels great in the city, trust me, you might not feel the same on the highway...

Okay I have been searching for the alst one hour and this is the closest thread that i can get to which has some relevance to my query. Mods please move my post if it does not belong here.

I am planning to buy a sports steering for my alto, The dealer has quoted me 2200 for the steering and 700rs for the hub. Is it a good buy?

The steering looks something similar to this
