Why spinners dude? They don't compliment the car at all.

Can't have spinners on a car that has a GT style paint job.

This is where spinners belong :





Among indian cars Mercs, Skodas, Optras would look "Killer" with spinners.

I have nothing against those spinners. They're lovely.

My point is that those spinners, on that car (considering the paint job and body skirts) don't really go that well.

Anyway, that's just my personal opinion. Lets just forget it.

Tell us more about the handling, road holding, steering feel and ride quality. The pros and cons of having 17" wheels.

Everything looks cool - the paint job etc but I feel spinners dont match with the kind of attitude the car is trying to project... spinners look cool on escalades or bentleys or mercs ... the kind of cars u dont street race..

- its just my personal opinion so dont mind ...

Done up the suspension? Still you dont feel much of a difference? Tell us if you dont mind what work exactly was done on the suspension?

Seen this Delhi Honda City in my area. It had the "Autopsyche Racing Techniques" sticker. Was on a call, so didn't get time to talk to the guy. Had bad wheels though.

Autopsyche, remember doing this one up?!

doesn't look like autopsyche's current work. Probably what he did earlier. Looks to plain jane for him.

Just spotted a dark green Honda City (OHC) with the following:
  • yellow vinyls
  • flicker lights
  • a raised hood (like the RIO's)
  • modded bumpers
  • yellow grille
  • five twin-spoke alloy wheels
  • yellow mud-flaps
  • free flow
  • black tapes on the tail-lights
Took pics with my cell camera. Will post pics soon.
