read the rules before modification
According to the Motor Vehicles Act-1988, it is a crime to modify almost all cars and bikes in India.

If any major change is made in the look of the vehicle, in which its design or look will appear different from the original design made by the manufacturer, then the owner of the vehicle can be held guilty.
For example, even seemingly minor modifications such as replacing bumpers or fenders completely, changing lights, changing silencers, etc., are illegal.
Changing the complete kit of the car or bike then the crime increases further.
Apart from this, black glass film (tinting) should also be avoided on the windows of the car.
The rule states that there should be 75 per cent visibility to the rear windscreen and 50 per cent visibility to the side windows.
There is also a ban on noisy silencers.
Changing the color of the vehicle is the biggest crime.
-Even if you do this, you will have to take permission from the RTO before that and change that color in your RC as well
