    • Guya you gotta understand India was an extremely socialist country until the 90s we didn't have muscle cars or jdm cars , there was only one nationalized state owned car company called maruti a d buying sports cars or touring cars is a very 2000s thing here

  • His geographical representation of the Indian peninsula and the type of cars makes no sense. For example take the state of Kerala. They have cash from the middle east to burn on upper end cars. Suvs are really popular among families in south India with more family members.

  • you know, in France, modifying a car has always been illegal, and removes the homologation, and hence, the assurance of the car ... yet, lots of people modify their cars, and lots of people are doing "tuning". there is one legal way to "re-homologate" a modified car, but it's very expensive, and nobody does it ... actually, as long as you don't kill anyone with your modified car, you have almost no problem.

You guys told the troouth about the Indian car market but if you search for " best modified cars in kerala " on HRworld , you can see what Indian car lovers do with what do they have . It is a big problem to the car lovers that modification in India is illegal . Not only cars , we can't even change the exhaust on our bikes 😫😫

  • Hi, During the Kerala floods of 2018 it was the modified 4X4 d-max and mahindra Thar fleets from the enthusiasts which could run rescue operations where the government issued rescue vehicles couldn't reach. When the flood havoc had subsided, almost all those vehicles were tracked down and impounded for illegal modifications. Kerala already had strict modification rules, the MVD wouldn't be happy to see extra fog lights even. Wait... U can't change the bulbs inside your headlamps from the OEM spec either.

  • Its tough being a car guy(nerd) in India... i had a very personal and hard experience about it. I was a car enthusiast since my childhood but when u wanted to talk cars language... None... Not a single person will be talking to you about it. Its bcoz a very small percentage of Indian population is enthusiastic about cars. A normal average person will only care for how much mileage his car gives... Thats it. You cant talk about technical terms with them (cuz most of the time they dont know about them i guess😂). As Vikas Yogi sir mentioned.... Mustang is a beauty in India. Its surely a head-turner. We have a single mustang in my college area whenever its shows up... Boom there goes the crowd to appreciate the literal beauty. But they wont know the car specifications... They dont know the basic car terms like what exactly is torque... Or how much is this car's horsepower and many of such things... So yeah it extremely difficult to be a car guy in India cuz u dont have many people to talk about those beauties

  • Basically the reason behind the laws is "Modifications just to SHOW OFF WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THE NEED AND CONSEQUENCES of the driving situation". That may cause accidents due to handling differences caused due to it than manufactured and tested according to the dynamics of Indian road conditions. And some laws are non sense because they did not bother to understand and justify the necessity each and every modification.
