What We Think
The trend of aftermarket car modifications is at an all-time high, especially in recent years. However, it’s essential to inform our readers that many car modifications are not in compliance with Indian laws. These customizations that alter a car’s fundamental features can lead to substantial fines. Therefore, we recommend our readers refrain from such modifications if they intend to use their cars for daily commuting. Nevertheless, if you view your car as a passion project, there’s no need to worry. You can explore the possibility of legitimate customizations by consulting your local Regional Transport Office (RTO). Following their guidelines, you can opt for minor modifications to enhance your vehicle, should you desire to do so.
