Thanks.

I have been asked to not disclose exact prices, but I'll give you a rough estimate.

If you want the cheapest and quickest solution, then you can get it done from any roadside accessory shop (like I did, the first time around) and it will cost you 1500-2000 depending on car size.
This works, but the gloss isn't much and the wrap definitely starts tearing after a while.

Then comes the professional job, where the roof is inspected for dents and they are fixed (if present). This part can be skipped but in a gloss black wrap, minor imperfections show up pretty easily. This would cost you not more than 3000 (maximum) if the roof is pretty banged up.

Next you select the material, renowned ones are Avery, Hexis, and 3M in increasing order of price.

Avery - 6000-7000
Hexis - 10000-12000
3M - 13000+

I've seen too many brands, and according to me Hexis and 3M are the best looking ones but costly too.

Again, it depends on your choice of material, budget, etc.


Yes my alloy wheels are MOMOs.

If our PM’s protective detail (SPG) could go in for a car that looks dope, I bet it could be none other than this! Go for it and make a statement like POTUS did with his motorcade guys

A friend took me along to see his friends classic Mercedes collection, where I happened to see this wide-body E90 330i. A job very well executed IMO!

Wow what a beautiful D max. Sometimes rims and tyres are everything you need for the most tasteful mod job.

I liked it. I think I will use it on my creta also.
I was never a fan of the section above and slightly behind the wheel arch of the rear side section - I feel its too big and bulging. Can you suggest some cosmetic visuals that can break that wide expanse of body in that section?

Sure, please do and post the pics. Which colour is your Creta?

That rear-side section is big because of the sloping shoulder line starts tall and slides down towards the front of the car. So, it is very tall and looks a little blank.

What you can do is explore some attractive sporty decals and apply them there. Select a decal that is of simple geometric shapes and 1-2 colors only. It will look great. Again, if you do all these please post the pics.

My creta is silver, same as yours.

Thin red/blue/black lines of vinyl or other material seems to do the trick as well. Will take sometime but will definitely explore. Thanks.

A nicely done W204 C-Class with Brabus and VÄTH mods, although I'd admit it could have done without the wing.

That roof spoiler along with the EVO-esque wing and all those fake vents look a bit too ricer to me. Might've looked nice on an Accent but ruins the Merc's innate aggressive lines IMO
