Err not to be rude or something but why do you really need 265 profile tyres on the rear axle in a front wheel drive car that hardly generates 100 odd bhp?

No you don't, but because of different reasons altogether

Once again, a great looking car, would have been a bigger fan had it been a 1.8TPi. Nonetheless, a big congrats.

Add to that, it's a diesel.

Looks damn amazing.

By the way some pics of the interior please.
Hope to see this at one of the t-bhp meets.

P.S. Arush, why is the front mirror not alligned with the door.
( have you stretched the door also)

Don't like the way it looks from behind. Looks like somebody has rear ended it. Also the wheel arches could have been slightly smaller. They make the rest of the vehicle look small.

I think this is the first Arush job that I am not impressed by. The others have been absolute beauties.

I like the side profile of the car -- looks good. However the design of rear & front look just toooooo loud and somehow a bit out of place (my personal opinion). But yes, the quality of the work is spot on and looks 100% professional.

Enjoy the attention my friend mehul.

Cheers,

Design looks ok, but octavia looks smaller and out of proportion from side. Front and back have nice finish but design looks bold.
