@Crazy Driver- Totally agree with you buddy, they look way better than the stock wheelcaps of the getz.
@naman07- The ride has imroved a lot & as far as handling is concerned they rule, i dont think that it can get any better than this I still have my previous tyres, rims & wheelcaps with me. But there are a few alignment issues that im facing with these tyres. The car is pulling towards the left even after the alignment.
@aZa- Thanks buddy. I'll upgrade to alloys very soon.

It is awesome. How much did it cost to you? I own Getz GLE 1.3 (2007). I upgraded it to 14" alloys from the showroom itself.

Thanks Faithless_1984, Krish3 & rameshnanda.
The rims are for 18K (Brand name-VELOCHE) & the tyres are for 4500 per piece(36000 for 4 tyres & rims). But i still have my old 13" rims, tyres & wheelcaps with me.

Looking at your pics, I too am tempted to go for alloys. I would have gone tmrw itself had it not been for lack of some vital vitamins.

Getz never looked so good. Maybe Hyundai should use these alloys in their ads and people will flock for the Getz

@Caroholic , i should say you have a fantastic sense of style and esthetics.

The colour of your car , then your brake light assembly and finally your set of alloys are simply superb. And you have maintained your car very well.

About your alignment issues . i remember reading here about the getz having issues with alignment as well as early wear of tyres . I dont know if this applies in your case as you have driven quite a number of miles without any issue, but just do a search of the forum and you might get a clue as to what is wrong . Hope you get your problem solved .

Again one of the best cars in here.

PS - I love that pic of your car in the mist on a bridge. Has a dream like quality to it . You are a very good photograher as well, as everyone can see!

Does GLS variant have ABS? I noticed it one of your pics on Page 2. Or is it just a sticker?

On no other pics the ABS sticker is there but these 2 pics you can see the ABS sticker. I thought ABS is available only on GLX variant.

Cheers!
