Default Still very much the Logan

Spotted this car today morning. The worksmanship looked good (could not stop to check it out). Like I have already said, the front design is too prominent, while the rear is nice. The side profile has been un-touched, and hence the effort put in has not been able to change it much from it's identity as a Logan.

But to each his own. And definitely not to take away anything from the efforts of the people involed in this.

Very detalied work indeed!

The face looks too toothy; as advised by many, the split grill might have worked. Try a grid patteren above the same griil by sticking some horizontal & vertical chrome strips. Some what like LINEA

The grille might get to be a bit more palatable when we finally get to meet someone good at Chrome garnishes. As for the rear lights - there are some promising developments here. The rear wooden tid-bits have been made more presentable - Will post the updated pics in good time - perhaps by next week even...

- Interiors will be executed at a later date - the car comes with Beige interiors and not the more bland grey one...
Any updates
  • The front grill ?
  • Has the interiors got an upgrade
If possible with pics

Saw this car today while passing through On Mobile office road on Bannerghatta Road.
The distinctive front really caught my eye.

The 'Kanoe' came into the workshop for some minor bumper scrape on the kerb - took some updated snaps - another update is planned later within another 2 months. So watch this space folks .

The grille would great with a bridge it would complete the car's design. the emptiness gives it a incomplete look u could consider something like this.

I wonder if the differences are apparent - being more on the subtle side that they are.

Do those front indicators serve their desired function? I mean are these visible for other people/vehicles from the front. Try to locate them below the head light for safety purposes.

The rear design has come out very well but sorry to say that the front is still looking incomplete (strictly my personal opinion, no offence meant). Also, the bumper at right is not aligned properly to the fender (pic 5).

Very good job with the Logan.. The car looks nice.

The rear also looks understated, but classy.

Two additions I feel are required:

1. Meaty alloys
2. Black Tints

Both the additions will give much needed character to this car.

Do consider it. Currently, the grill looks way too empty.

The grille looks better this way..
