MaXBhp- I saw the car in flesh and its looking awesome to say the least. Two things I would recomend is that remove the marikar stiker from the boot and the front is looking bland wihout those foglights and if possible a chrome exhaust tip. The thud thud sound maybe due to a foulty lower arm and regarding the tyres I wud highly recomend the Michelin PP2 205/60 but I think 205/55[S.drives] is the techinically correct upgrade.In fact when you compare the PP's with other brands which come in the same size they look more wider.Iam using 195mm PP1's in my lancer and they look as wide as 205's which I was using before.

Thankyou .

@Xehaust
They did check it . Will re-check with some other service station.

@Veelubai
I am removing it. I dont want the fog lamp availabe at the showroom coz its too small. Am looking fora bigger one.(Will be altering the front bumper completely) Will be fixing one very soon. Am going for 215/55/R15. Either S drives or PP2 . Like you said PP2 thread indeed accentuates the width of the tyre.

fine but even though the stock fog lights are small they give a good spread and doesnt require any cutting and stuffs.
Dong you think 215's will be bit too wide?Another member[reignofchaos] is using 205/60 PP2 on his cedia.any other mods planned?intake?and why not replace the Marikar sticker with a teambhp sticker???..lol

Max the car looks amazing with the black alloys and yellow calipers.

Please post some close ups with the alloys and calipers. Also get better tires before you try to cross the 120kmph mark again.

JOE,
give the car a light tint not the black one,, give it something like the v kool stuff. there are too much writeups on the boot lid, though i understand most of them are india spec from the manufacturer. atleast remove the marikar logo. dont you get the Ralliart grill for the lancer back there..if you get 'em FIX it.its a better looker than the smiling grill.(will attach a pic in the same tread for your reference)

Am removing all the logos from the back side and am going to fix just a 'Ralliart' on one side. I have to check them.

This looks cool but I will have to replace the bumper along with it. Wont be cheap.
What am planning is to replace both by a custom made bumper from Kit up in the lines of the one shown below.
