A bit 'heavy', but, as you say, well finished, now it desperately needs bigger wheels.

don't mean to be a carping critique ... but although the spoiler and skirts don't look bad ... the front of the car , and the angle in image2 really do not support the sporting pretentions of spoilers and skirts(IMHO only)
black however would look sexy with stuff like this

p.s - have an optra too . similar colour

Putting those skirts on the side will reduce the ground clearance more...

i too have an optra and it scraps on almose on every Speedbraker...
well for optra it would be CARBRAKER...lol
i have to be very slow when going from a Speedbraker...

soo if you install these skirts it will even reduce more resulting in scraping more and might break the skirts

Have you changed your tyres because as far as i know Optra doesnot scrub any breakers. I think there is some problem with your car get it checked. Secondly side skirts dont reduse the GC as they are on the sides wheras when the car touches below it is always the mudflaps and not the skirts

Nope...doesn't work for me. I think the car looks much better without these mods. Maybe a better job would make a difference.
