Congrats!!!
How much did you pay for alloys, tires and JVC HU?
Is it possible for you to watch videos on the LCD while on the move? or you bought it for your co-passengers..

All the modifications were taken care by Mr. Sanjay of United Motors, Rajajinagar, Bangalore. We have been giving all the vehicles for servicing at United motors and go with their opinion. Sanjay has helped me in getting the modifications done.

I have not yet received the final bill for the modifications that have been done. I am putting the approx prices. I will give the actual break up in 2 days.

Alloys and tires: The alloys were ordered from Delhi and the total cost was Rs. 18K. The Tires were fitted at a showroom on Raj Kumar road and they costed approx Rs. 15K.

ICE: The total cost of HU was Rs. 20500 and the rear camera costed Rs 2.5K. The 4 speakers costed me Rs. 7K.

The combination of JVC HU with Infinity speakers is good, its much better than the Sony HU and speakers in my Baleno and Alto. JVC HU gives the surround sound with Dolby Digital output. The overall effect is good. Also the LCD screen is clear, you will enjoy watching the DVD's and VCD's on it. Its small but the clarity is good. I have fitted the external mic for the bluetooth and the sound and the conversation through it is crisp and clear.

The total cost of all the modifications for Alloys, Tires, HU, Speakers, Camera, Autocop, Sunfilm is approx Rs. 70K.

I am not planning to add the seat covers and i felt that the factory fitted seats were good.

I have got the ICE setup done outside the showroom. JVC + infinity combination is good.

Ya Ajay... I would rate Baleno as a drivers car. Swift is good, but cant be compared to Baleno.

In Baleno, you sit low and you have all round good visibility. The independent suspension helps in smoother ride and the vehicle is stable on rough roads. The engine is rev happy and i enjoy pushing it to limits.

In Swift, you sit like you sit in a chair. Bit different from Baleno, I have to get used to it. The vehicle is a bit nervous on rough roads, I miss the smoother ride of Baleno. The pickup is better than Baleno if the RPM is above 2K.

Over all Baleno is better if you are not concerned about the petrol bills .

I did not take the test drive of Palio MJD. Was happy with the Swift. We are having Maruti vehicles from a decade and have not faced any problems with them so I was happy to go with Swift. Palio is a good car, but i was advised not to go for it because of issues with service and the spare parts.

I drive the car alone or with my friends. Mostly the front seats are occupied, so I have no issues with the cramped rear seats. After few years I might have to give importance to the rear seats, until that time I am happy with the front seats .
