Thanks for the complements guys,, here're the pics you asked for:
Hi Buddy, that indeed is a very well kept Honda City. In my opinion, old Honda City was the best looking among the various versions launched in India.

I particularly like the matching decal that you have used on the headlights.

@di1in
Amazing ride you got there!!! Neat !

Just one suggestion. Get rid of the all the gold please. IMHO, it sticks out like a sore thumb, especially with the white alloys and the silver on the headlights.

@optimystic01 - Those alloys gel very well with the colour & look of the car. A great freebie with a used car And thats a nice colour shade for the car paint as well.

Dilin - Your car looks real near but pls remove the golden frame for the grill.A good mesh grill and light tints will provide justice to your car .

But if i change the gold to the standard silver i'm afraid it would make the front look real bland and i detest that .. perhaps a pearl white coat would have a better effect? And i don't like the black mesh grills.. it gives the car a look that i can't connect with - besides making it look like it has a gaping hole up front !

Back to the topic: Is there an easier way to get rid of the dirt that hangs onto my alloys ? The present color of the alloys combined with my laziness might have an adverse affect on the future color of my alloys. Any tips ??

Thanks everybody! My dad used to work at BMW for about 25 years so he knows just what to do to keep the car at peak condition.. for my part i learnt driving in it so it toughened up .
We'd planned on selling the car to get the civic, but then some designs popped up into our minds .. and SYJ here helped me forward starting with the tires and Lenso alloys.

Hey zerocritical, your car's lookin nice with these alloys. White marking is done neatly. Was it a DIY?
But isn't 195/60R14 is a wrong upsize for a swift? Correct upsize would be 195/65 R14.

I guess those tyres are only available in 195/60/R14.

How did you do it?

I tried once with white paint on my Ex gypsy and the paint came off within a week

Forgot to mention that your alloys are absolute drool maal.

I think the white would make it look much cooler. Any photoshoppers here ?


MODS: Can we have a drool smiley on team-bhp please? The stuff people put in their cars makes me drool a lot, and that smiley might help.

These look fantastic. Is that a DIY? That must have taken SOME time and effort on your part, eh ?
