the wheels are just a big time drool!!fandabulous
which rims are those and what do they cost!!
btw,u need to get sunfilm soon and spice it up!!
and surely the exhaust tip is yummy..
You nearly hit it buddy. Its in fact a Dzire grill. Cost is around 1200/-
Rims are "League" LG-279
The car is on with Lumar sunfilm. I had purposely avoided a dark color to make it look more like a tinted glass. Moreover, reversing at night would never pose a problem.

The car looks amazing - I really like the whole two tone interior thing. One question though - how in the world did you manage this snap? 70 kmph on a highway with your hands fiddling with a camera instead of being on the wheel

Congrats Thereal on the fantastic set of seat covers and steering wheel cover. They just look fabulous. The tweeter on the rear door is something atleast I have not noticed before. Just excellent.

Hey Soum,

The photos are amazing and she looks beautiful. My Swift is also black.

Did you change the front grill? Its looks like the one from Swift Dzire?

That too without the seat belts on. Very unsafe thing to do.

Angry

@BBT,thanks for the compliments.well actually my brother took the seat and i took over me to drive,so i took the snap.

@white_vdi,@amtak, sure dude- thanks for the piece of advice, i always wear seat belts, it was my brother who took the wheel by that time - he paid a fine of 100Rs just moments after i took the snap for not wearing the seat belts!!..Hope he wears the seat belts from now.

@SOUM,thanks you buddy

@harry10,thank you..

@ariendj, the Steering wheel has dual tone beige + Black perfolex Art leather. the whole upholstery stuff was custom made. 4 hour job


Hey swift owners ,have any of you faced any problems while switching the gear to reverse, it feel sticky at times for me!!!!
Do anybody have similar problem.

Can any body know where i can find 3M car care kit in Bangalore and its approximate pricing?- i couldnt trace them in Coimbatore
