I completely disagree. Looks are subjective RS. To each their own. Arush's SX4 is very very sporty.

Yes, it is each ones perception. Ford mustang, camaro are racing machines but they don't look the way you define sporty, so looks are subjective.

arush bhai, sx4 looks odd may be due to wheels 18"?. Get the skirt down or something

Features my current fav color, a three stage white with golden/green pearlascent, widebody kit includes single piece fenders mated to extended WRC style front bumper, rear wheel arches and extended side skirts and rear bumper, lip spoiler.

Performance wise this car has a lot more addition including greddy trust titanium tip exhaust, custom made headers, ported and polished engine running slightly higher compression, iridium plugs.

18 x 8.5 front and 18 x 9.5 rear, Chrome deep dish wheels with Yokohama ES100 tires, 235/40 front and 265/35 rear, and they really fill up the widebody arches pretty well! Although i dont know how much performance has dropped after the tires were put as i havent driven it after the new set, but the owner was more inclined towards the showoff part so doesnt mind the huge rubber
nice mods. I think the front especially the grills needs a more imposing highlights... nevertheless, a good mod. like the side profile

The car looks very nice but pls get rid of that stickers on the back door, that brings an end to the otherwise awesome look of the car.
By any change if you are going for a mesh grill pls do something to that chrome strip as it doesnt gel well with the mesh and I feel paniting the mesh to blak will be better.

Many have advised to remove the sticker, but it will make the car too plain. People who see the car in person doesn't want to remove the stickers. May be in the photos it doesn't look good.
Planning for the mesh in the front grill.

Very nice work done on the SX4, gopinathan. However I would suggest you remove the hood and side stickers. You could also paint the grille in the same body color. Also I agree with complete matt black wheels. The paint scheme (black and chrome) you have done would look good on dish-type wheels.

Arush's SX4 also looks very sporty. Not a fan of the mesh grille though. Would have preferred a single layer body colored grille. Anyways good job Arush, especially the rear bumper.
