hmmm...i still feel the white nd black rim combo looks the best. plus if you dont have to paint your car you can spend more on other mods..

akshay1234, something went wrong with your photoshoping?the front bumper is overhanging,
navin_bhp, the car would look awesome, but please avoid that big honda racing sticker, its too loud just use small stickering works like ramie2400 suggested at the right places...

desigNation - yeah, was in a bit of a rush so i messed up the front bumper.

navin - like what khanak said.. you dont need to paint your car. just get it waxed and polished and then youll have alot more to spend on mods. and if you do keep it white get black rims.

Ok..I've decided not to change the color. It would otherwise look odd when i go out with my family or take it to office. I wanted to try that RED because its my favorite... Maybe i would give it a sporty look after i buy my next car..

So I've planned to do the following mods,
Im putting it in the order im going to modify..

1) Alloy wheels 15" ( Guys i liked a lenso design very much it costs 25K for 5 wheels - the dealer said it is lighter than the HR (21K) ones which one should i go for?)

2) I was looking for V type tyres and saw a goodyear(Rs 5000 each) which was 195/50 i couldn get a V thread tyre in 205/50 ...is there any??

3) Instead of body kits im thinking about 4 side skirting kit (the one that ramie mentioned)

4) Strobes..

later i may go for K&N's and Free flow exhaust....

Any idea how much the above would cost me???

navin_bhp- dont buy 5 wheels , jus buy 4, dont waste the money. use for some other mod.if it was an suv and the wheel was mounted on the rear door i woulda agreed with 5 wheels....., whose gonna see the 5th wheel in your car, jus think about it and decide..

@ desigNation: I contacted Ahmed and got the address of a guy named Fiber Ravi...thats where ahmed has done his skirts..The shop name is cosmo fibers and they showed me a lancer's spoiler since they didnt have a OHC's spoiler ready to show me how it looks like.. I kind of liked the lancer's and it looked good in my Type 1' OHC.. Need your suggestions on this guys..should I go for the OHC's or the Lancer's..

Also let me know how much the OHC's spoiler will cost...

nabin_bhp- i think you stick on with the ohc 1, cause it would surely give you a perfect fit, please dont compromise, wait for some time,get it done neatly, so you dont regret later.

@ Designation : Okay...I called the shop and changed my order to OHC type 2 spoiler...I edited the pics in photoshop and found the OHC's to fit better...thanks for your advice and opinion..

The guy asks me for 3.8K for the spoiler(Including the paint job)...I have paid 1K as advance. Do you guys feel I should bargain??

Forgot to mention the 3.8K includes the brake light also..
