Default Quick Photoshop Mockup

I am having second thoughts on Black rims now after this quick Photoshop render I did. I added blue stripes and covered up the chrome scratch guards and side panel stripes.
I may just get 15* rims for now because of my tight budget. Will see.

Let me know what you think or if its overkill

Lenso for sure does not cost 9k per rim. You just being conned.
AFAIR, for ~30k you can get 17" Lenso's.

BTW, do check out Konig and Enkei rims. They are available at very cheap prices these days. Read < 25k.

Jo, good PS job but I think it's a bit over. I'm not a fan of vinyls so maybe others may like it. For black alloys, I would prefer the ones with lesser spokes and exposing more of the disc brakes so that the whole car wont look black.

I agree. 9K per rim is outrageous. I am pretty sure there are better options out there. I am just swarmed with work so did not get time to look for better ones.

I prefer alloys with less and thick spokes but those are hard to come by, at least at the stores here. Will keep my eyes open if anything else pops up.
Here is how it would look like in all black. I have seen a few all-Black cars on Indian roads... tough to make it look good because it gets dirty and shabby pretty quick. That's the reason why I had to add some more color and hence the stripes.

But looks like no one is feeling the stripes, so how about Flames?

Hmm Flames.? Well, am not into that. Also, that's pretty common with modded cars.
If you add graphics to your ride, you need to modify extensively. Like, low profile wide tures, bodykits etc. Then the car will be complete. Something that you see Fast & Furious. Without these, I think it would look odd and if you r unlucky, your car may land up in the W&W thread. Anyways, this is just my personal opinion as am not into graphics and vinyls. No offense dude. ;-)

Hey Guys. Sorry no update yet. Just turned off with all these problems I have with the car that I am not willing to invest in it anymore, or atleast for now.
I am however quite occupied with my RE Machismo 500 customization Do check my thread on that.

Hello Joe,
Hope your doing well. I plan to purchase a similar set of headlight assembly from Ebay. I do have a few queries, hope you wouldn't mind clearing them for me ?

1. Did you face any hassles with the Ebay dealer ?

2.How long did it take for them to arrive ?

3. How much money did you have to shell out at the customs dept before it got cleared ?

Thanks for your time
