Sorry for the crappy pics.

I need the caps for the alloys. The stock Skoda stickered ones are not looking good

@ Siddartha - I specifically checked for the fouling. Its A OK on the Rider. No idea about the vRS though.

where is the car? all i can see are the alloy, tyre and "chhedafied" disc. if possible take a pic of the painted alloys along with the car. use the octy caps for the time being.

you are right about the pics - they are crappy

last but not the least - the pics may be crappy but the alloys are looking "Fresh"

@ shuvd: i suggest, you paint the brake calipers red. it look good with black wheels. Also, black out the b-pillar.

The painted the rims are looking good. How about a 1.9TDi badge at the rear. It will make it a sleeper for sure.

@ badboyscad - I wanted to get the calipers painted. But, since the job was not done at Skoda A.S.S., I was told there could be some trouble with the ABS if the caliper is removed. This workshop didn't have the VAG Com thingy.

@ Planet - Abbey Planet, the car is on the wheels/tyres only!

@ Razor Singh - Full pic on the way.

@ M4ugr8 - Thanks man. TDi badge.. tell you the truth, I've been thinking about it.

@ GoSlow - Thanks yaar. SB's doing fine now. Civic will remain stock. For the time being at least.

@ Siddartha - Maybe the mud flaps are the culprit. Get it checked ASAP.

@ Roy Babu - Thanks dada.

Noooooo no no no! Customize the Civic more! Give us less fortunate folk to drool about the possibilities instead of drooling about a car we don't and probably can't have!

On a more serious note, wicked wheels man, literally and figuratively.
