Love the whole the car and the all black look in the picture but the red wheels are not suiting the car and looks gawdy IMO. May be a grey or silver wheels would have rocked the car further.

No idea of the source, just happened to be among the Civic pics.
One thing I remember is, got the pic along with itNerds Civic pic through google.
I guess Civic is one car, which looks good even with minimal mods.

A Civic looks good with minimal mods, but this certainly is a wee bit over the top. IMHO, if one is doing all around skirts, they have to match is size and design, but the front skirt of this Civic is absurdly curving and seems bulbous. This is in stark contrast to the side skirts which are straight and sharp. Heck! even the heights of the two skirts vary way too much.

The mods where done purposefully as the car had gone for an all India ride.

The holder of those diesel jars can be opened sidewise, so that the back door can be opened.

Name and blood group where also written as part of the same ride. And it was written only on one side doors.

Just saw a nicey modified Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series at a local tyre/wheel alignment centre.

Sorry, no photographs as I was on my way to work. The mods that I did notice was that the vehicle had large off-road tyres, after-market LED tail lamps and a snorkel. Don't think that it had a suspension lift, nothing noticeable anyway as those huge tyres filled up the arches pretty well.

The side by side photo comparison with the stock Civic was an indeed good thought by steeroids.in.

Apart from the small-ish wheels, the stock Civic looks better IMO.

Amazing, love those wheels. The gangster look.

I so want those wheels for my swift, but the minimum size starts at 16 " in that design.

But this looks like a candidate for the weird and wacky mod jobs.

The silver bar in the middle, looks like a band-aid.

Silver color whiskers like that of a cat ?

Silver canines at the bottom ?

Hood scoop doesn't look good too. Poor finishing as well.
