The Jatt Boyz sticker is awesome, please don't remove it. Instead of the Batman sticker, you should put the Ferrari sticker on the hood. Combined with bling bling 17" wheels and phat 225mm tyres, the ride will look awesome.

@Mods: My choices have been decided based on the sticker-happy nature of the owner. Please don't consider it sarcasm

I have not removed ferrari logos as they are going well with the brake calipers and rear hub colours.I am looking for some other alternative for this as i always hated the empty space above or below indicators
Why don't you go for few TBHP stickers? I'm sure they'll compliment your car.

Ahh, wish I was young again!
My Take :
keep the jatt boyz sticker, it's sassy.
lose the ferrari stuff - make you look like a rice-boy racer, that's what they call it in Texas when you want a jap compact to look like a corvette. Don't try to ape some other brand - be proud.
The paint looks a bit dull, give it a nice gentle rub of Turtle wax, give the tyres some armor-all spray, then sit back and open a cold one!

A Drives are a good option - Not sure about the price though.
I have Maxxis MA Z1 - Decent tyres.
Michelin XM1+ are very good - check out prices tough.
Good Year F1s are also good - Should be a better choice over the Maxxis.
