Except those mirrors, wheels and tail lights, the car looks lovely!
Good to see someone actually investing so much on paint protection in almost half a century old car.

Id say one sweet looking i20 from gods own country - with those bodykits and gloss black treatment, Mr Wayne would be choosing this for his daily day drive

Hi Guru,

You definitely forgot to mention the CLOTH HANGER at the back & the rear bumper. The front is too black to make any observations but the rear is fit for W&W thread.

Those ORVM's are needed today & function over aesthetics is important here. I don't see anything wrong with tail lights too. I suppose, you meant lenses!

Yes, the owner could have done better job on alloys. I personally would have loved white colored alloys in same design.

Nice rides ; but why these obnoxious little number plates, that too after having quite fancy numbers.

Congratulations on that delicious looking GTI.
Im pretty sure you have more upgrades planned for it than just new wheels.



P.S - I have been been drooling over your blacked out 520d for quite a while now, and Im pretty sure fellow BHPians will agree with me.

Thanks a lot man. Yes i have planned a few performance upgrades over the course of time.

Also the 5 series looks the best with the M bumper, can't help but turn around every time i park her and walkaway

That is a very bold tyre upsize on the GTI. Works out to +5.73% over stock!!! I can never be comfortable with such a variance. Looks good nevertheless, but you'll have to live with speedo error, taller gearing and added weight on the suspension.

Shouldn't be problematic since the international sizing works to 205/40/17, and he is at 225/45/17. The only issue will be minor speedo error.

Both are HOT looking cars. Great choice of rims too . Agreed with others - the number plate looks too small.

By the way, I recently crossed your 5-Series. Remember the number & blackened effect clearly. I think it was on Peddar Road (I was on the opposite side in my 530d). If not Peddar Road, somewhere in South Bombay, but I'm 100% sure about seeing it just a couple of days back.

Yes i know it has a lot of error but apparently 225/40 profile isn't available anywhere, so its like i had no other option. There's another gti in bombay running 18s with 205 section.
