Cool!
Something like what I've done with my Sumo.
Im sure its gonna work out dirt-cheap for the Esteem parts.

Ok now this is the pic of the car when i first bought it. Just looks like one below average car, compared to the honda city's and skodas.

So that should inspire you to make it stand head and shoulders above the oh-too-common city's & skoda's :)

What specific upgrades have you planned on the car? Anything beyond the new Esteem (visually)? There are a few modded Esteems on this forum. You can hunt around for some ideas and inspiration.
And how about performance? Anything in mind?

I am sorry dezmo, this is not an esteem, this is a M-1000. Please check & get back. A M-1000 is certainly not worth the trouble.
cheers :)

John,How did U make out the difference???

jeeva 14th August 2007 10:03

I think that the M1000 had that external lock on the fuel lid opener. Isnt that internally operated in Esteems?

Bingo. Only the M-1000 had a key for the petrol lid.
