Finally my dream car arrived last weekend for which I have been waiting for 3 months - Swift VDI. Earlier I use to have Santro, but swift really rocks, handling is superb on my new alloy wheels.

Currently the vehicle is fit with below accessories:
1. Alloys Wheels (which comes with Ritz Zxi) MGA - 21000/-

5. Parking sensors - REDSOL 4448/-
6. Parcel Tray MGA 1000/-
7. Mud flaps MGA 300/-
I have exchanged stock tyres for 1000/- each.

Congratulations ! Prabhu, Swift Vdi has a gem of an engine. Opting for michellin tyres is good option as it gives overall better stability. Nice Red colour and pretty cool alloys too. what is the final OTR that you paid ?

Prabhu - Congrats on your buy. IMO Swift looks best in red colour. On your query about G Sport seat covers, please go through these threads:

In addition to G Sport, you may want to look at Autoform which is also a very good brand. All the best with your new car !

Buddy, you got less for your stock tyres.
Regarding front sunfilm, bargain hard as there's a good scope. Try different dealers, the film itself in amazing VFM and is effective. I'm having the same and the green shade to it is soothing.
Floor mats, the PVC ones are hot selling nowadays.
To maintain the sheen, wax the car regularly.

congratulations on your red swift.Do opt for underbody coating which is useful in rainy wet roads.Teflon coating isnt necessary so dont waste on that.Some interiors as well after you are done with seat covers.

Congrats on the RED BULL ! I have a white VDi
I suggest you dont go for the garware films.Lumar is far better product and would be last long.
I got my film stuck some 8-9 months back for 3800 ,Steel 20 is the model i guess. I didnt go for the wind shields because they cost 5000-5500.But they are made with ceramic compound so it second best to Vkool.
I got mine done a month back or so and the cost was 6K.It is from AUTOFOAM and it is skin fit.If you want to go for the loose fit you can get one for 1800-3500.
All the best !
