Terribly sorry guys. my internet was down since past 4 days which is why i cudnt come online.
I like all of your humble comments & I will get my maruti repaired as soon as i should teach my brother to drive (because dents and scratches are possible while learning.

1.tail lights maybe around 1500 a pair (not sure)
2.1800 for a pair of two without bulbs i guess, not sure about type1, they dont have a motor nor clearlense so it wont be more than 2k
3.it wont be more than 200rs
4.AC gas costs you around 600-800,
5.engine oil depends on the brand, my sugession, go for synthetic oil no matter which company you choose

Thanks for your replies guys..
I got some welding works done with a big dent removal from a workshop for Rs. 1300.

Also visited CST Road(Kurla, Mumbai) on monday & got few items for maruti 800 at damn cheap rates.
1)Tail lights: A pair for Rs.160 (Not genuine)
I was getting Lucas ones for 240(pair)
2)Air filter: Rs.100
3)Coil Condenser(Lucas ones) : Rs.250
4)Fuel tank lock :Rs.100

Will again visit this week for Engine Oil, Car perfume, and a couple of bulbs .

Kindy tell me how much Carborator cleaning costs.(Type 1 ofcourse)

Maruti Alto & Zen both come with body colored bumpers..
Do they provide the same for 800 Type 1 too ??

I am eager to put an original one coz i am scared that if i paint one myself or by the mechanice ... its paint will wair off after sometime.

The prices for which you got these items are damn cheap, No doubt. But reliability will create a question mark.

I'm telling you because I've suffered because of "cheap" spare parts (I'm especially referring to Tail lamps etc), They look very sparkiling in comparision to genuine parts on first day but tend to fade and resulting in spoiling the looks of your vehicle much much sooner. So, Its better not to compromise for your ride when it comes to such spare parts.

In my opinion, A spoiler will not gell well with an 800.
About the Tints, There is a wide variety available. Visit some accessories shop to take the idea of pricing which also depends on visibility.
According to current Indian Laws, It must be atleast 50%, So be ware if cops in your area don't catch you for jet black tints.

I am eager to put an original one coz i am scared that if i paint one myself or by the mechanice ... its paint will wair off after sometime.
Don't worry about the body colored bumpers paint, If you get this job done from an authorised workshop, Chances are that it will be as good as stock one. I did it on my 800 Type-2. Other wise, As I suggested you earlier, Get the whole car re-painted.

Drive Safe!
