Thank you Anekho. Do check out the other pics in my ownership review section.

I know the bumper protectors dont go with the looks Karan. But the real problem lies elsewhere.

In the area where my office is, I have to parallel park next to the pavement. There are many cars, and the parking attendant insists that all cars be left in neutral (apparently aids in pushing forward/backward, creating room for taking out other cars). Such "all day shunting" leaves the bumpers with small scratches. The protectors actually absorb these and keep the bumpers scratch-free. So for now (unless I find better parking), the protectors will have to stay on!

Thanks for the compliments on the wheels.

got a new set of 15s on the zen, car surporisingly is lot quicker than what it was with the 14s .
lesser contact patch from the 195s down to 185 is the reason.

Ride qulity is as good or bad as earlier. Grip is nice, looks pretty good too.

Yeah it is, but that does not mean I have to stop modding it, it's up for sale and will sell it as long as I get the right price for it.

I recently saw the Yongle/Plati 2009 catalogue, had many rims such as these. I loved all of them, wanted a similar one with red for my SX4; didnt have them for my car.
