No Idea about the alloys. Spotted during a marriage function. But I have more pictures of the same car, which will give you an idea.

Its the stock alloys with gloss black paint or may be a powder coat, saw a similar verna here in bangalore, looks neat though.

These HONDAS look simply stunning. The Red Honda in the first pic, I believe belongs to one of the BhPians. He is known as Shaan in Team-Bhp. The ride was black earlier and got painted to Red.

Yes, it's k_shanz. He keeps changing the color and the alloys frequently.

Eek! The spoiler doesn't look GREAT at all! The owner should remove it instead, Verna looks nice without spoiler also.
BTW, the rim design is same as in higher variants of Verna. So I think the owner got it painted to gloss black.

A neatly modded one!
The roof looks super awesome. The stock alloys were not good looking on the beastly Punto 90hp but the owner has got a real nice job on his wheels. The red lip of the wheels looks stunning.
However, the 'Abarth' stickering looks incomplete from the front, since it starts from the bumper, leaving a large gap between the fog lamp and the sticker.
BTW, I noticed the carbon fiber wrap done around the fog lamp area! Neat.

Yea, the owner is our forum member KarthikK. Yea, the Abarth Stickering is a little incomplete, but I suppose it was designed for Punto Evo's bumper, so it explains the large gap.

PS, if the ride height was a little lowered and the front and rear lamps tinted a "little" this car will be jaw dropping. Lets wait and see what karthik has in store

Here's few pictures from the meet:

There are very few BHP-ian cars highlighted in the 48 pages of this thread. I think there is an implicit assumption that if a BHP-ian modifies his/her car, it will necessarily be tasteful, so why don't more of "our" rides make it here?

Yes, Eminenttismo has got the guess right. These Abarth vinyls are designed for Abarth Punto Evo, where the fog lamps start a little farther away on the sides. On the Abarth Evo, the Abarth vinyl stripes end in the fog lamps. Since our Indian Punto has fog lamps more towards the centre, there is some gap area left behind. I had no extra length of stripes to stretch it till the fogs, so this was the best I could manage for a Saturday afternoon DIY job.

Already on the cards. Will be a DIY job very soon.

@Nimish: Pink! 2-door modified Zens are becoming common in India, IMO. BTW I don't like the car. No spoiler, Orange trim on interiors, pink/purple exteriosr, No fat muffler, No bodykit (even side skirts)!
