HI sanju,

I am facing a similar crisis over my ikon. I would suggest to get your B pillar stickered to matt black. can upload pics if that will help you.

how is the performance from the goodrich sport tires?

how much did the league alloys cost you?

Regards,
govigov

Its too early for me to judge. The tires are hardly 2 days old. But it sure makes some noise. Not too much though. I can live with that.

It costs me 17k for a set of 5. But since i paid using credit card, they charged me 12.5% extra. That took it to almost 20k but including the chrome nuts.

Sanju, the car and choice of alloys look good.
How about some better pics of the car?

If you have the budget, see if you can source the new bumper. Would increase the sporty looks of the car further.

Default B Pillar - Matt Black Sticker

Take a look at this example. Hopefully a photochopper will show you how this looks on your Ikon.
