Thanks bro! Yup, Suzie sure is one hot babe And I do agree, those red center caps (though entirely co-incidental) add a subtle contrast to the electric blue. Gives it that added edge if you will!

What can i say,your swift looks too good.28 gs is a lot of moolah but well spent,totally worth.How heavy are they as compared to the stock ones?

Thanks. Yes I know they are expensive but I was decided on Lensos (which are imported and therefore higher priced) much before the car even got delivered. Spent lot of time on finalising the design and narrowed down to this one. I love the classic 10 spoke design, clean and fuss free. In fact I had budgeted for them when planning for the car itself.

Much lighter than the steel rims that I exchanged them for.

Hi, I was quoted 36k for 5 but managed to get it for 6 thousand each. I have bought only 4 as I have 4 tyres. Now worried what will I keep for stepney.

Awesome, the alloys look superb. Looks like the price of alloy wheels has gone down.
I paid 20K for a set of 4 14 " alloys back in 2010.
