Cost for Red Paint:400.

Have you actually painted the car red? Looks a bit loud in my opinion. Nice car though!

It would complement the silver detailing in your alpha variant's headlamps and look uber cool.

As for alloys, yes please do change them since the stock ones are god-awfully boring but do not upsize the rims to 17 inch ones because that will take away the car's ability to tackle anything our Indian roads have to offer, besides you will have to keep the tyre profile smaller to match the overall circumference so your wheel arch wont really be filled any more than it already is. If you want to make the wheel arch look less cavernous, then have the black cladding on the bumpers, running board and around the wheel archs painted to the white body colour. Stick to 16 inchers and try not to get one of those newfangled dainty looking diamond cut designs; go for a more classic design with thicker spokes and have it finished in a Candy silver with just a small dash of gold to the mix.

Trust me on this one

That cost of red paint seems to be for the disc brake caliper, if I am not mistaken.

I think you are confusing between Chaudharysaab's silver S-cross and the Pro-Idiot's White (??) S-cross.

@chaudharysaab: Is the 400 bucks for painting the brake disc calipers? Do share a close up when possible along with one of the alloys

Yes ChaudharySaab has got them painted for 400. I have the white (cow as per IshaanIan ) one. I have not spent any money, only time on the photoshop-ing.

Looks gaudy IMO. The usual black wrap mimicking the panoramic roof is tried and tested and works well for lighter/brighter shades. And for a car of this size!

Like this Evoque for instance:

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-15468.jpg

But totally your call!

You Like your animals , but thanks for the honest opinion, I will share my logic later, anyways its more hypothetical right now. Thank for the advice on the size. I will not change it.
Surprised by your comment on the car's ability to tackle anything?
Isn't the suspension setup, the primary contributor to the cars ability to tackle roads?
If I change the tyre wall height aggressively, I understand it will get bumpier

Hahaha yes but not those two animals in particular. I don't think it is entirely about logic at this point, but more to do with the aesthetics no matter how brilliant your logic is, I think I speak for everyone here when I say please do not turn that photoshop job into reality. I have studied design passionately and practice it actively as a hobby so perhaps I feel more strongly about this than I ought to, but glad to see you haven't taken offense

Well it is not all to do with the suspension now is it? If you have a smaller sidewall height, more shock is transmitted; not just to you affecting the ride comfort, but also to the rims, suspension components, mounts and chassis exposing the entire car to higher stress levels. This will result in more frequent minor suspension component replacements and introduce your cars chassis to more flex weakening it over time (ofcourse that will only be noticeable over the course of a decade or so but still) don't even think about making the mistake of compensating by maintaining a similar profile while also upsizing the rims because that will adversly affect your performance and handling characteristics and more importantly, how predictable the car feels behind the wheel.

I stand by my recommendations for your car and really do hope you consider them seriously

I already took your recommendation seriously.

Also don't worry about me running into making such drastic changes, I will take my time and your suggestions with it.
Will give you more trials, now that I know of your interest in design.

You guys are lucky to find a buyer for those Suzuki alloys. I have tried my luck with 5 tyre dealers in Pune and no one wants to buy those alloys. So I have decided to stick to the stock alloys.

I changed the tyres to Michelin Primacy 3ST on the next day of delivery. The total deal was like this:

JK Elanzo buy back: 4,000/- per tyre
Michelin Primacy 3ST; 7050/- per tyre
Total damage: 12,200/- INR

It's raining cars in the thread, three in a day. Heartiest congratulations to all the proud owners.

Chaudharysaab, those alloys deserve a closeup.

Did you change the size?
Please share some details ($$) and where did you get them from?
I want to get alloys and tyre change too.
For tyres, i would suggest try Ashok Motors in Sector 16 since you are in Noida. Gave me a buy back of 4600/tyre. I got 5 Michellin P3STs for 9600/tyre.

For Alloys i would suggest visiting Karol Bagh as Noida does not have many options specially in the 114.3 pcd category with 5 holes, would be worth it.

Oops, i just noticed back to back posts. Apologies, mods please merge, or do the users have a way of doing that.?

Just got my S Cross, delta variant with the accessories thrown in. Happy with the car completely unhappy with the way Nexa dealt with their wrong calculations.
Did not make too much of a fuss and Nexa did not care. Just interested in selling, nothing more. Disappointed.

Hi,

Just booked my 1.6 S Cross Alpha. (Silver). Wanted blue but the rest of the family were .

I enjoyed the test drive

Planning to trade in my ecosport. Inspite of the advice of fellow BHpians against trading in a 18 month old ecosport, I went ahead.

Still negotiating on the deals.
