What all you want to change in your 1.6 Optra? Let me know cause I'm planning to sell my alloys and tyres.

Just a tip, when buying the base version of a car, it usually looks the best if you buy it in a dark colour, preferably black, because that way the unpainted doorhandles, sidestrip (&mirrors) match the car better. (Im assuming the optra base version comes with the above)

Well, if its a smooth ride you are looking for, it makes sense to keep the wheels at 14".
If you want to upgrade to tubeless i would suggest the Michelin Certis. They are designed to be luxury/comfort tires... and they have a great grippy advantage over most OE tires, which helps during cornering and braking.

narayan, please check again. Yours is a re-registered vehicle too. 2001 OHCs go for anything between 2-2.5L now. Last sunday, a 2001 Vtec was available for 3L negotiable.

Thanks. What I forgot to mention that this is a company leased car and so, I become the second purchaser and the person who buys from me becomes the third purchaser.
