What We Think
While we appreciate the efforts that went into making something like this, it must be understood that most car modifications are illegal in India. You could get pulled over by the traffic cops and get challaned. Hence, we suggest that you don’t go for any major customizations to your cars. Instead, in fact, you should first consult your local RTO to know about the legalities surrounding these mods. There are a few elements which are legal. You could even get them inscribed onto the registration certificate of your car, making them road-legal. Let us pledge to be responsible and law-abiding drivers.
