How much do these projector headlamps cost? And any idea how much a sunroof would cost to be installed onto a Civic? What about the reliability?

@blueraven:Looks damn hot,and you have managed to accomplish what honda hasn't...increase the ground clearance.The car looks higher than the stock civic or is it just the camera angle.

Damn, so the pics are finally up. Will check the car out when I'm back, and it's good to know I can always call Rajiv for a drive anytime I want a cure for indigestion!

The car is raised up as the over all diameter of wheel has increased.
Of many other things, this would lead to...
1. Lower speedo & Odo readings
2. Very poor ride quality - considering Bangalore roads
3. Probably the Suspension would die very soon
4. The rear tyres have taller profile (side walls) than front tyres. i.e. the rear wheel has bigger diameter and the car is raised from back. This can reduce the stability of the car. (anyway I don;t think it can be driven fast on our roads)
Well all that on practicality front.

But they do look hot

The profile on both wheels are 30, suspension is stock and not raised, and IMO it is a absolutely horrible idea to fit such rims on our road conditions, as one cannot even drive the car fast enough to feel the bad ride quality, so in a way the suspension is taking a beating and at the same time not, cos this car is not even taken on bad roads let alone be driven fast.
This is like taking a Tiger and keeping it in a cage like a good looking multicolored Monkey in a zoo that everyone wants to see.
I personally would not go above 17"/18" on a civic considering my driving patterns.

EDIT: BUT, IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY HOTT !!!!

Also this car demands to be lowered to improve the looks.
With this size of wheel and stock suspension, the tyres would probably hit the wheel well if lowered. So the car should be lowered with a stiffer suspension.

With these awesome rims that should be a must do next step...

Any pics from the rear side of the car showing the wheelies..?

Profile is specified as a ratio of tyre wall height to width (tread) in %age.
Tread width in this case is different 225mm for front and 245mm for rear, so the height (tyre wall height) is different.

It is advised not to to run different sizes tyres considering safety aspects.

BTW I expect the car is raised at least 1 cm compared to stock, due to the bigger wheel. This demands to be lowered, it would look even better
