This is really nice!! 33k is a bit steep considering you are only getting the front, side and rear skirts and not a full bumper type bodykit. And a better front grill would be better too.

And what is the stock size of the rims on the i10?? 16"ers seem big for this car

yes people here in india are still stuck over less resale value, low mileage and stuff like that. i dint care about all this and took a automatic first time in 2006 after that till this date i hate manuals now. the future of cars is autobox and not manual. time will tell. soon all my cars will be autobox. next in line new gen civic autobox. hopefully

@jesal: since the car is for your parents, don't go over 175/60R13. Also, the Yoko A Drives are meant to be good and come near the XM1+ category in terms of ride. Planning on those for our fiesta TDCi.

@ Jesal:

Tyre upgrades for i10:

Tyre gurus (iraghava & kpzen)recommend 175/70R13 Michelin XM1 or Yokohama A300. Knowing your dislike about Michelin, you may want to try Yokos.

Stock wheel size for i10 is 13x4B, so you will have to change wheels as well if you are opting for 175 width tyres.

You may want to check these threads for i10 tyre choices.

ok so after no updates here at all. ive called the shots myself. getting the car in 24 hours i cant wait now..... the rims i have decided on 6 spoke HR rims with a lip. the tyres im going in for 175.70.13. i guess ill go tomo itself for the upgrade not sure about the plans. the tyres im getting are bridgestone AR10 turanza series, they are new and seem nice and getting each for rs. 2500 without warranty. total cost of rims and tyres is 20k. old tyres sell for 2k a piece so effective i guess 12k from pocket gone. no other upgrades decided. the stock ice in the car is going to be used for a while atleast.

You vehicle comes with 4+1 (spare) tyres na? Then in effect you should be paying 10k only. Or are you not upgrading the spare?

The spare will not be upgraded if he's going for a higher size
example 13 - 14
or something
for a different profile, he can get the spare changed too.

But whats the need.
The spare is used for very less distances as it is
