It looks like a New Babe. Congrates man.
Silver Accents Looks good on 10 Spoke chrome alloys with 15" low profile tyres.

One more thing, which ver. of Accent is this? GVS? GLE? GLS? GTX? It is not there below "Accent" Badge on the boot. buy a "GLS" badge from Hyundai accesory shop else the car looks as if its been repainted.

@Gangsta: The car is a GLS. I had got the GLS badge stuck on the boot but some sadist ripped it off the very next day.Looking out for the badges now as it is not available loose and u have to buy the whole set, will check out the hyunday service centre Today.

The car looks great!! It is simple but elegant. Great taste.
A before picture would help to appreciate the difference more.
The prices seem attractive. Enjoy!!

@zenopio: i always wanted to upsize to 14 inchers but we were working on a tight budget which was already stretched by 15k and couldnt stretch it any further. Also it was impossible to hang on and collect some cash for the upsize as the previous tyres were simply pathetic.

OOH the new pain is SHINYYYYY

I am known to be biased against Hyundais, but I'll make an exception to say that the car looks like new

Nice job there. Makes me want to redo my Accent as well. Its got a few dents here and there. My tyres are approaching the 40k mark. I think will get everything done once I am going to change tyres, will get alloys as well.

2.2 is a good deal.
