This fit and finish is bad. And the grille looks wacky IMHO.

Wow ! That looks absolutely beautiful. Reminds me of old European cars, more noticably the Olg Gen VW Polo / Golf, with those front round headlights and the body kit !! Loving It.

I am really sorry to see this car featuring in this thread. May have featured well in the 'other' thread.
What exactly is tastefully modified in this car ? I see a shoddy paint job only.
And yes, those 'flat' tyres are better suited on trucks. Please request your friend to get new tyres, if not for show-off, but atleast for safety.

Looks pretty good. Especially the rear stance, but dont you think you should lost the red strips in front? Doesnt gel well with the overall theme.

Love it! If I was in your place, I'd replace the matte wrap between the taillamps with a gloss one. And there are a few rough edges here and there, but looks good nonetheless.

EDIT: I'd also lose the black strips along the skirts. Unnecessary in my opinion.

Cheers!
Cartman.

The wrap between the tail lamps is actually the carbon fiber vinyl. It looks matte in the picture due to mobile picture. Yes i will be covering the rough edges soon.

Appreciate the response guys.

Usually not a fan of excessive amounts of matte black vinyl on a car (guy has spare cash lying around and just wants to spend it not knowing what exactly it should look like). Must say, that yours is the only exception I can think of right now Kudos to you sir!

Would as suggested already, recommend the boots wrap to be replaced by a glossy finish one and perhaps replace the red with really slim maroon accents which wont be as garish but will still prevent your ride from looking like a Panda which is why you added the red I assume?

Hi Rajant, Doesn't look bad. My 2 paisa suggestion, Get rid of the stickers on the wheel arches.. Something like this. Hope it works!

Hey Na_sh, thanks for taking the pain to photoshop it, i was actually thinking of the same as the black makes the arch look big and the tyres small. Now after your photoshop it does look good. I seriously believe hyundai should have given 15" Rims on the Asta like they do for the export models.
