Looks amazing! But, hows the ride? Handling must have improved a lot right?

That look HOT man! How about a nice picture showing the entire side angle of the car? And one with the front three-quarter?

I am not even going to ask you how the ride quality is.

The GC should have increased by 2mm.
But its a base model which came with 15" wheels n 20mm less GC than ZXi.

It looks hot. Nice upgrade.

Finally a car we can put in 18 inchers without too much of a worry.

Sweet ride. Though I must admit that you must be traversing through some amazing roads to be able to run with 40 profile. The wheel wells still look huge even with 18''. I am guessing that one can fit 20 or 21'' too. While you are at it, see if you can drop the GC by 10-20 mm. It will handle like a gem and will do justice to those 18'' too.

Kp, I am sure the Vxi comes with a GC of 10 mm lesser than that of the Zxi which is 190mm.

Great work Gautam. The car looks very nice with those wheels albeit the ride quality is tossed out of the window.
