Hey Navin I suggest this for you,the body kit just put some 15" or 16" bling bling hyper chrome /black matt finish rims with profile tyres..some underbody neons suggested with the body grahics colour and headlights and tail lights blackened and some "flick flick" flashers.

Hope you guys liked it.Cheers

Ramie rocks again..Thanks for all your effort man..I need some clarifications on choosing the wheels.

What are the pros/cons of going for 15" incers. Will it increase the ground clearance?

If you chose a lower profile while upsizing the overall diameter of the wheel will remain the same and the everything will be the exact same except the ride quality which will go down and the handling which will improve.

Look around in the tyre section and im sure all your questions will be answered.

Bigger rims can really change the look of your car and if you can bear with the loss in ride quality id really reccomend it.

hey thanks dude,with this my photoshop practice is also going at home
15"inch would be a better option,your ride will be smooth+handling, 16"s will rock good show-off buy ride quality will become rough and the vitamin M will also increase

Thanks DesigNation and Khanak for your suggestions...You guys make me take the right decisions about modifying the car.

Ramie: You are very good at photoshop man..I think you can try out some 3D tools like 3d studio max..etc..and im sure it will give more realistic output. Its a very good idea to use these wonderful tools to get a preview of how the car will look before you actually modify it. As of now I donot want to give the car a complete sporty look by putting vinyls over it. As I use the car to goto office I want it to look sporty as well as a bit decent.

I was thinking about going for a 13" alloys as my cars footwear are quite new. But I dont want to regret it after buying so I will wait for some time and upgrade to 15 incers(have to spare another 15K for the tyres) .

The new number plates are on its way and it will be fixed this weekend.. These are unbreakable ones made of fiber... The car has done 60.5k so thinking about treating it good with a service.. Thats it for now and will keep you guys posted about future plans..

if he gets 17 inchers hell break his back if he goes over a bump.
if you read the thread youll see hes decided to stick to the stock paint.
as for the spoiler hes just got one so i dont think hell get a cf one and cf is very expensive anyway.

Sorry guys..was very busy last week..didnt have time to reply..

@ Devilvtec : Thanks for your suggestions man...i really havent thought about the interiors much..Im looking for something simple and neat. And the 17 incers will be a defenite no no ..as akshay feels it will give you a very uncomfortable ride (it will look good though) ..Even if im ready to compromise the ride quality for the looks..the suspensions life will reduce drastically...which makes me think again.

BTW waiting for you to post some pics of your ride..
