That is a stunning looking rapid you done there. Can you tell me the landing cost of the front grille and the new emblems. Guess you acquired them from superskoda.

Thanks,
Front Grills with New Emblem + Rear Emblem cost around 10k

Great work Mi10 ! I plan on doing something similar with my Rapid in the near future. The Monte Carlo look suits the car perfectly ,especially in white.

Oh Wow! I have a similar Rapid, but IT IS STOCK!
It is high time to collect some cash now!

I guess the colour of the wheels could have been black instead of the current one, which suits the Subaru Impreza!
The leather wrap looks really awesome and unique. Are the wheels 17" or bigger?

The red Rapid looks sick, although I'm not really sure about having bits and pieces of cow-skin stuck to the roof of my car.

The red Cruze is nicely done and really neat job. Special mention for the headlamps n mesh grill. They blend well with the car's persona.

Hi, welcome to team-bhp.
Dear friend if you are talking about the post by faithless_1984, it's not a cruze. That is Skoda Rapid.

Pretty sure,it would be a Vinyl wrap that looks like leather,and not the real thing.

This kind of finish in leather is typical of skins of snake, crocodile, lizards etc. Cow hide finish is very different.

Anyhow as correctly pointed out by another member, this is vinyl. The finish is not to my liking either, a dull matte finish (it has a particular name, which I cannot recall) would have looked better. Like the alloys though.

Though Everyone has his own taste, I dont think the Black(Correct me If I am wrong) with orange border Vinyl looks really ugly on the hood and the sides. Though the roof is fine. Fat Sedan's(SX4, Verna etc.) do not really good with vinyls on the hood. Though The projectors and alloys look great

All the elements are great independently, but personally I don't think they belong together. Chrome and matte Black together on a white car! !

That car belongs to owner of SK auto sector 28.
IMHO it should head to weird and whacky section,the black Vinyl looks tasteless in real.

Neat looking Fluidic.
But, there's a disconnect between all the aesthetic mods. Too much chrome and matt finish.

Sorry to say.. but somehow I feel the smoked lamps does not go well with entire setup. There is too much of black things.

Probably plain lamps with projectors would be a killer!

PS: Just my point, no offense to anyone.
