the ride is not bad at all it really holds on to the roads cornering is amazing could take really tight turns without applying the brakes.

From the pics it appears you are using wide wheels (8J? 8.5J?). This would give you great performance on good roads. But the real test will come when the monsoon gets under way shortly and the roads get potholed. With 40 profile tyres and wide wheels, you have to be ultra-careful in order to avoid damage to your expensive tyres/wheels. What tyre pressures are you running? They had better be suitably high in order to avoid damage on bad roads.

actually the roads i use are not very good except the main roads
have had no problem till now even my friend who has a swift with 17 inch HR rims and 40 profile tyres has had no problem till now. he drives on worse roads than what i drive he has had it for more than 8 months now. use to drive his car a lot sometimes found no problem. have to take care on bad roads but dont have to be ultra careful.

ride quality is not bad the ride quality has come down a bit on real bad roads. on good and ok roads its not a problem at all . handling and grip is excellent.
