are you planning to repaint the whole car , Paint on the alloys dont stay very long ,Since your using 18ichs you have wide range for selection if you want to change that is, you can add eyebrows to head lights makes the car looks mean.

My car is running on the lenso ls21 18"rims.
Please feel free to give any further suggestions. BTW my car is heavily tinted with black tints..

Thanks,
Chetan
I don't think racing stripes would really go with the style of your rims. If I was you Id paint the car black to go for that gangsta look. Maybe just some skirts all around to make the car look lower.

How is this car doing? Hope all is well. Haven't seen it since the Sep/Oct 07 flooding.

chetan i agree with khanak, dont add racing stripes. repaint the car either black or white and along with the skirts also add a rear spoiler.

Well, I guess only bumpers then, if i have to repaint the car, I'll have to reregister it and that's no way possible cause my no. plate is 9999 and the price I paid for it would go to a waste. I guess a black spoiler, bumpers and spoilers will do. Thanks for your advise guys!!

That's a good job. Nicely executed. Congratulations !!

Suggestions:

1.
Could you please post pictures of the car on tarmac. Will give a better idea in terms of road clearance etc. i.e. how low the kit extends.

2.
As you rightly mentioned, the tires are looking too small. The wheel-well gap is spoiling the overall looks. Either the rims need to be upsized or the car lowered IMHO.

Edit:
The Tail-lights are fabulous. I haven't seen these before. Are aftermarket projector or angel-eye headlights available for this car?
