Then Prestige has them in 100PCD 16",17" etc.

A member on the forum got them from Lenso and actually they looked the deal and comes closest. He has got them on a Skoda Octi. Check out the Alloys show off thread.

why not the 335i. I understand you already have a 3 series but the 335i still should be great and if this is going to be your personal car, even better.
And about 15 lak lighter on pocket too.

Thanks dipen, had already considered that option, however, not a big fan of the new 3 series, and also need something slightly larger. Would've loved to get my hands on the M3 though, but thats out of the budget.

I am sure you would have considered all options, but still. Doesn't the S4 make sense too. Its slightly bigger than a 3 and slightly smaller than the 5. Again 15 lak cheaper than the 540i and a little more powerful (hp). Plus you would have a different brand in the home too.

Are you planning the tiptronic or 6-speed ?

Now you are talking !! So going straight for the kill - eh ?? The 540i would not need any mods (I hope) IMHO It has a presence - an understated one, hope you keep it at that

Hope to see the car & pictures real soon !




Cheers

Sir, just today had a word with Arush, the denting work as well as the mechanical technicalities have been sorted out, only the power steering pump remains to arrive. The interiors are stitched and are expected in a day or so. The car is now in the process of heading to the paint booth. Id love to take some WIP pics however, im in london at the moment shopping for some accessories for my car. Rims im most dissapointed in the choice as in 17s the ones available aren't exactly what i would like. The design i would love is available in 18 inch and i don't know whether it would be a good idea on a 100bhp car. If anyone does find rims in 120 pcd do let me know.

Cheers

As decided Arush, the dark grey is the way we're gonna go. When exactly are we starting with the paintjob, as im returning back to Delhi on the 25th and would prefer sampling the colour before going ahead with the paintjob. Cheers
