Definitely the smartest (and cheapest) way to do a matte 'paint-job'.

Fantastic mods on the Octavia Combi vRS! Those BBS wheels are to die for! And that Thule roof-mounted thingy completes the picture. Some Mini-Cooper-like Lightforce fogs on the grille wouldn't look out of place either.

And that Palio. Well, what can I say. Simple things like that Italian flag theme wouldn't cost much, but it would instantly transform the car. There are quite a few of them on the forum these days. Still.. it's brilliant!

EDIT: BTW, those 15" BBS wheels on the Palio were once worn by a really hot-footed City that I'd gotten familiar with! A little bit of nostalgia in that, for me!

S10 might look simple with italian theme but the quality of work and passion is what needs to appreciated.
Owned by a fellow tbhpian JayD, and this is one of the simplest restoration he has ever done. Check his profile/signature

Since the Honda City has a PCD of 100, I suppose those alloys are too?

S10s seem to be blooming here & there in Kochi. And that IS a good thing!

Here is a picture of that particular City and it's BBS wheels. These pictures are at least 8 years old. This car was based in Kerala before it went up in smoke. Sad.

Is this in Cochin? That bridge kind of look very familiar? Wish he had gone for the black although it's common.

After my friend was done with it, he wanted to upgrade. He got a great deal on a Skoda Octavia Rider so with a heavy heart, he decided to sell the City to a kid who was infatuated with it for years. After the sale, the kid cranked up the boost and floored it repeatedly resulting in a blown gasket and internals. The engine went up in blue smoke. :(

That kid should be taught a lesson for doing so with such a lovely car.
