Sun Film - Garware , Llumar ( approx. Rs.2000/-)
Bumper Guard - Now a transparent guard is available from Autographix (approx. Rs.750/- a set )
Remote lock - Autocop or Xenos ( approx. Rs.3000 - 4500/-)
Scratch Polish - Scratch Over from Formula 1
Alloy - Plati ,Neo or Apollo ( do not go for cheap China or Taiwan make)

Xlusive - Shantipally, R.B. Connector, near Ruby Hospital (for any car decor and utilities)

Indo Radial Club - near Ganja Park, Bhawanipur. (for Tyre and alloys).

As your car ply in Burrabazar, do not think about scratches and dents because it is obviously hit by the 'thallas' ( hand cart) and three wheeler vans. Probably even God can not save your car.

wishing you a happy and safe driving.

Welcome aboard to The Automotive India, Congrats for buying Spark.

Garware, vKool and 3M are recommended brands. You can choose their variant depending upon the budget and requirements.

2.Front and Rear Bumper Guard
It’s not clear whether you are simply looking for rub guards or nudge bars. If the latter, stay away (http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f.../1741-front-bull-bars-crash-guard-yes-no.html).

3.Remote Locking (it only have central locking no remote locking)
Autocop is a reliable brand but remember that it might void the actual warranty. Please confirm with the dealer before proceeding.

4.Scratch Polish (I need a good useful scratch polish which can lighter the scratch and as well it protect the place being rusted, as the car travle only in the Kolkata Burabazar where every car get scratch easily.
This thread would be useful: http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/forums/maintaining-my-ride/1795-effective-car-scratch-remover.html

Can you tell us the design preference and budget? Some popular brands are Plati, Neo, Aura etc.

Drive Safe,

Aura is not available right now because Hindalco, the manufacturer, has stopped the production.
Sorry for the interruption.

Sun film - Go for Garware, that would come in your budget.

Bull guard - Avoid, else your car will look like a taxi.

Remote locking - Xenos or Autocop, but why no remote?

Scratch Polish - Most products dont actually work.

Fuel tank lock - I am not sure you get anything like this. You will have to fabricate one at a local tinker shop. but why do you need it?

Alloys - Go for Plati, Lenso, HR, Neo or any reputed stuff.

Get Garware Sun film with lesser transparency.
2.Front and Rear Bumper Bull Guard , (4k)
Do you actually need Bull bars for spark,it spoils the looks IMO,spend money for for others
3.Remote Locking (it only have central locking no remote locking), (3k)
Go for Autocop will be in 3.5k
4.Scratch Polish (I need a good useful scratch polish which can lighter the scratch and as well it protect the place being rusted, as the car travle only in the Kolkata Burabazar where every car get scratch easily. (500)
Don't know too much of Wax polishes,but Formula 1 wax polish is a good one costs around 200 Rs.
6.Good Alloy Wheels (14K)
Go for Aura or plati.

I need the gurad to protect the car from the riskshaw (Trolly Van), And i need a good Sun film which can protect the car from heat so suggest me which one should i buy and the tank lock because where I park the car near my office I have to give the car key to the parking person and i think he is steeling the fuel.

Sun film - Go for Garware, that would come in your budget.

Bull guard - Avoid, else your car will look like a taxi.

Remote locking - Xenos or Autocop, but why no remote?

The prices varies by a huge margin buddy, depends on the brand & which model you select.

In the budget range, have a look at Garware.

For the Sunfilm- Garware OR 3M are reputed brands (garware fits in your budget)Rs.2-3000.
For the Alloys- Plati is the best brand followed by nEowheels - has a wide range with an ample budget of 14k.
For the Remote locking- Go for Autocop but it might void warranty. the MKE051 model (which i have on my alto lxi) comes at Rs.3500-4000.
The bumper beading- You can go for the local ones (body coloured) if having less budget for them (available till 400Rs.) or There are the Transparent ones available for Rs.750 For 4.
Car scratch remover- Actually i am having that SCRATCH OUT (rs.150) but it is effective only on light scratches and tyre marks on car body. Check from our Gurus for this!
Fuel TAnk lid- Didnt understand this! :stupid:.

Else you can go for a Spoiler (small) available till RS.2500-3000.


BTW- Which colour is your Spark? If its White , then white alloys would do ; if black, some chrome or silver thing is ok; or else specify the colour.

Also, are you looking for small beadings on the bumper sides or the big SUv type nudge guard/bull bars? please specify. Was confused as you have a budget of 4000 for this!
