Not very sure about the smoked tail lights.
But other than that the black and red combo makes the car look very cool.

In the same segment, I found the Aveo had the best interiors and ride comfort. Good choice wildchild4lyfe.

Did the upgrade to 15" Alloys change the ground clearance ?
Also any changes in handling or mileage after the tyre / alloy upgrade?

Thanks..!
yes those are 15"s (195/50/r15). the handling has changed immensely and as for ground clearance its pretty much the same.
yes the car is real comfy.a little too comfy for my liking infact..lol..! the suspension is too soft and need to do something about it.
as for the smoked lights,I was one of the first to get it done out here about 2 years back...now every second boy racer has got it done..so it aint all that cool anymore i know..hehe!

Nice to see a modded aveo, wildchild4lyfe.
Personally, I would prefer to keep this pininfarina design stock on the outside.
But, that would be me.

Good to see an Aveo modded.hardly you can find a stock one on the roads.This should be a head turner.

i was planning on a matte black but then it absorbs a lot of heat..! got fried driving a friends matte zen..

@hillram : thanks bro!..well i wouldnt call it a head turner coz ive pretty much kept it a sleeper apart from the tail lights and the exhaust..

The skirting might seriously affect ground clearance.
However since you are in Mumbai I think it should be fine, In Bangalore you will get royally screwed due to the huge speed breakers.
