I haven't blacken the b-pillar,by default it comes like that. Though low profile tyres looks good and increase handling, it is going to affect ride comfort, so not going for that right now. However with this ground clearance it handles corners very well even at 70 kmph.

Hi Gopi, great work on you car. It looks awsome. I am planning to change the stock head light bulb. Have your fixed the Philips H4 crystal vision from the MASS. How is the light performance?

I painted one of the alloy wheel to make the wheel bigger and good. First I used the oil paint so that I can decide to go for this or not. After applying it, the alloy really looked good. Planning to paint them with the black color spray paint. some of the screenshots.

with that paint it looks like those plain jane neo wheels everyone seems to be getting.

i suggest you paint the full thing black and see how it looks. or paint it gunmetal.

Hey Gopi, Thats quite clever. You can keep changing your alloy's looks just with paint good thiking. Try PS'ing with different colours too. Maybe will look good in some red too. Did you try painting your Front brake calipers red or something? Try PS'ing again.

I was trying to get the black chrome or gun metal paint spray, but couldn't get it, so ordered black spray from ebay. If you know any place in chennai, let me know. I don't want to go for a full black, wanted to have both chrome and black.

I would also try the red one for the front brake calipers, looks sporty.

Since SX4 exhaust is tilted downward, most of them does not suit it. This was the appropriate one. I have to live with it. Something is better than nothing.

bro it wouldve been better if you had just not put an exhaust tip. then you could just change the endcan. bu to each one his own. your car is looking great otherwise.
