Looks superb! How about a quick exchange of the stock tyres for some 195/60s? THAT would really complement the car/rims!

It is Aqua.

- I agree with you itwasntme on upsizing the footwear. Not only it will complement the car/rims, but will improve the overall ride and handling as well.

Congrats docap! Your car looks cool. The GC looks massive even with the stock tyres. Please post a few pics of the interiors as well.

Enjoy the drive!

...but will instantly void the warranty. if you are upsizing, better keep the stock wheels n tyres with your and fit those before taking it to the TASC for anything (it'll be a pain tho')

AFAIK, upsizing would only improve the handling (and looks) but ride quality would go down because of thinner tyre wall.

Congratulations on your new car, Black car and chrome alloys certainly compliment each other.

I find something odd between the wheels and the car on a whole , feels as if some suspension work is done to increase ground clearance(no offenses please) any body feel the same.

Overall the car looks great.

Alloys look great on this. Guess this is first Vista on forum with alloys!

You know I thought so, I mean I was waiting to a see a Vista with Alloys and reckoned it would be a looker. It sure is, one of the smartest cars I have seen on bhp.

its aqua i had booked aura but they said i would have to wait for 4 more weeks so i setteled for aqua and used the money for alloys
the car is very comfortable reminds me of my sisters matiz
very spacious and power is pretty good a bit of lag till 2000 rpm and then it really pulls
i need to change the stock tyres to wider ones maybe 185 or 195
only bad thing about the car is the quality of the plastics and the roof beading has come out within 1 day they used some adhesive to fix it back
also i now feel the top end aura is really worth it for 33k u get plenty of additional features maybe i should have waited for 4 more weeks
anyway it looks really good in black will post more pics tomorrow with the balck tinted films on the windows

No it wont void the warranty. And no need to change it to stock rims and tires everytime you take it to TASC. Infact the dealers too offer those usual spoke alloys (shown in advertisements) as an after market accessory. They wouldn't if it were to void the warranty.

Yea, you are right, the ride quality would go down a bit.
