Hi Guys...I want to modify my OHC with body kit, spoiler and alloys...i would then go for K&N filter and FFE. Can anyone edit my car pic in photoshop with body kits and stuff..so i can see a preview before i buy anything...I like vipers front bumper very much so any modifications with that bumper is very welcome...

you can check my garage for an idea - even i own the type 1.

you're lucky you've got a very good base color white is rare on the OHC.

p.s. - very good photographs btw

Hi manveet...ur car looks good....post some pics of the interiors..the steering weel etc..do u have any plans of changing the alloys?? i think a good alloy which is 14 incher should make the car look more beautiful....is there any reason why u have increased the alloy wheel size

Well.. the car has gone through some more changes . .. waiting for them to complete before I update my Gallery.

btw, i've been told by a lot of people that my gold alloys are REAL good .. so don't plan to change them unless I find better looking ones. and 15"ers always look better and 14"ers dude.

try goin for a sporty look ,
like you can have 15 or 16 " rims , paint them black , have a black hood (carbon fibre) , and an GT-wing spoiler(black colour) ......
n u can attach some lowering skirts , just to add the sporty feeling .....
this combo would look gr8 on an white car ....

Hi navin!!

some of my ideas..

1. Keep it White..(I love white Citys).
2. Get Good Rubber (possibly V thread..It does enhance the looks)
3. Alloys.. I would prefer Multispoke alloys..(for size ask the experts)
4. Black Tints..
5. Black Interiors.

Enough Then go for performance upgrade..

If you really want to go for the sporty look..
Add simple looking Skirting and a spoiler..

How about

1. Type 2 Conversion
2. Rio Bodykit
3. Low Profile Rims

I tihnk this should really make your car stand out as IMO RIOs OHC kits are one of the best looking kits you can get. Also being in Chennai you wont have to worry too much about the kit beign common.

Carmordenize also makes some good kits though I still feel RIOs OHC kit looks better than Carmordernizes.

Dont worry too much about the white colour though, it can look really great if modded properly

Thats Mugen_Power's City. I think hes sold it now though.

Whatever you go in for, make sure its low profile cos a bodykit will look odd on the car otherwise.
