^^ Beautiful saar! If i were you I would get the bonnet painted back to white and get the calipers painted red. It would look super cool with the existing stickering. Next Service perhaps ?

Thanks buddies,I will try and get a closer pic of the alloys,currently my car is grounded from the past 2weeks,the battery have gone dead and hardly have time to get it back on the road,this weekend it will be for sure.I am seriously planning in from past 1year to get the calipers painted red dunno when the day comes.

The car is due for a full custom paint-job will be doing it once the new ICE arrives ..

@Prince_Parves:the bonet is not painted its still white under that vinyl

Hey naveen, am going to be going in for a tyre change soon & have almost the same profile (205/55 R15). Just thought id take some feedback. How is the ride quality & grip of the S Drives? Am planning for either Conti CPC2/Yoko S Drives or Michelins.

@Xehaust.
Please note that I have 205/50/R15. Not 55.
If the road conditions are good, you can go in for 205/50/R15. Grip is simply awesome.
I suggest you to go for S Drives.

My friends ANHC with 215/40 R17 Dunlops. Those who visited Auto Expo must have seen his earlier ride, the white SX4 at Elegant's stall. That car had to most outstanding rims I've seen till date.
