Definitely this one looks good, but the white part doesn't have shine in my OEM alloys, if it is nickel kind of chrome then it would be nice with the shining.
The reason I first did matt black around the wheel is that I would be going for stickering for rest of the mods, as it is easy to remove and change the style. If it is paiting it will spoil the wheel when it is removed. I am going to a clear coat on the white part to bring some shine. If it brings some shine then I will for any one of the design (either yours or Skoda kind of) I will show you the pic which I was up to.

The car color is sunlight copper, in the photo it looks like red, sometimes maroon because of lighting.

I have already spent 50k on this car, right now I don't want to spend another 50k for the alloys & tyres. So just want to mod with existing alloys. This paint job totally costed just 1K

Nice work there, the alloys looks awesome, even you cannot even identify that they are stock alloys and 1K is worth it ...

by widebody, I am guessing a widen front/rear wheel arcs along with a stretch front bumper, just as in the WRC SX4? Eager to see the looks!

Your machine looks hot.

I need a urgent help from you regarding those OVRM with Turn Indicators. Did you bought it from MGA. Is it complete assembly or just a wrapper around existing ORVM.

How much does it cost?

MGA here in gurgaon says, they have not recieved it yet.

The turn indicators are not MGA. It is a wrapper on top of ORVM cover. I bought in ebay for around 500. Try getting it from auto accessory shop and fit it on the cover, though a bit tedious job as the door pad needs to be opened and the wire should be taken inside front fender to connect to the default indicator wire.

I asked my dealerhip and they said that it is avaialble as a pair of ORVM covers with these turn indicators integrated into them. Yes the MGA ones do look great and the indicators are nicely integrated into the ORVM cover. But i am told that it costs a whopping 14k
