Excellent effort Sparsh

I do agree with Psycho on painting the grill mesh, with your new set of wheels you should be all set.

Just to add to the Grill painting. If you can get bigger rims than 15" ~ it should look really good. 15" rims dont really suit this car.

Anything bigger will hurt ride but you need to do that to get the proportion right. Looks off with small wheels.

Even a steel rim with chrome lip will look awesome. Experts can the hub be changed to 100pcd or something so more options open up?

Oh god i dont know how to put it up but i will keep is short"

The car is up for sale

Its more like a project car i would say as there is so much which is still to be done.

I cant value the car so it would be best that offers are made.

Reason
= Me leaving country and there is no one to take care of the car

Will post in the classified section soon.

PM me for further details

@ Sparsh :
1. No offence meant buddy, but it's too late for you to call that spoiler "stupid".
2. How much are you selling it for??
3. Please share some interior pictures too.

@ Desified: What are those 4 shiny things I see there, bazookas?!?!

Vow desi! Good job with the conti! I guess you are now entitled to meet up and let us ride in your machine. . Kiddin. Dropping you a PM. Want to check this baby out before bangy reches it.

@sparsh- Sad to read this man. That was a nice conti coming up. I was going to post that now that she's got the looks, got to give her the power too but alas, she's going.

P.S. What's the next project going to be?

Desified Wow not only are those wheels large but you put a staggered setup! Are those indian made wheels (they like the Neo etc export variety lot) what size in inches X J are they and what size tyres do have you put. It seems front and back are the same although staggered should have broader setup as the rim is wider
