The place where i dont understand anything is the ENGINE BAY! I never mess up there myself!

Go to an Aftermarket person and get it done up( the reverse light) if it needs repairs.

No problem. I am not encouraging anybody to drive fast. Its just a reason for better mileage. It feels scary above 70kmph on alto, After all its a small 800cc car, Not meant for that fast driving. Personally I have done 125kmph on my Alto while going to Meerut. Nobody try please!

You can do wonders, provided you look at the safety part first.

Nope, Not in all cases, My stock horn is working FINE since 3 years. But I too think that they are too Soft. Go for those ones with "PAW-PAW" type sound. Or the "PRAE PRAE" Ones. Sorry, Didnt have any other word to explain this!
Do tell the cost.
