Oh, and That's the first floor shift I drove.
Thanks. Well my S1 is a basic bench seat, steering mounted gear shift type. Yet it thrills. My earlier S1 was with floor shift type- sadly its no more with me. The white walls are the most exciting things to happen to my Fiats of late. Thanks again for the appreciation.

I think this will look good only on old/retro styled cars.

That Punto looks like a proper circus car Fusion is hideous too

Makes reference to usage of a Degreaser. What are the popular degreasers available? What are they called in mechanic parlance?

One more thing, are these reusable as well, say I have to remove a tyre off the rim after a puncture, will these continue to stick after the tyre is reinstalled on the rim.

Whitewalled or White inserts look out of place in modern cars, in my opinion. What I am looking for are White lettered tyres. Do we get these in India? I have seen some 4x4s with such tyres, but not smaller cars with 14/15" wheels.

Something like this:

Are these making a come back??

I am seeing quite a few new cars here white walled tyres. Saw a couple of Innova, Creta etc.

I do not think these suit any new cars. And its a royal pain to keep it clean.
