thanks, have to get the windows tinted like you said, can already feel the vibes as around 50 people approached me within 15 minutes when I stopped at a gas station after getting it painted and they started staring and asking me all sorts of questions. Very special color this is i guess...

There's something about these matt finish paintjobs that makes them look so super stealthy. And, yours no different.
I double Akshay - lowering springs and tints and you've got yourself a stunner

Thats one mean looking SX4. The best I've seen so far on T-BHP. Now all you need is tints and smoked lights probably. Wish u many many happy miles of ownership.

Wont the black matte paint make it hard to spot the car by other motorists in poorly lit roads, in poorly lit roads/areas?

The reason I say this is coz, a year or so ago I was with a friend to book a santro. He was in two minds about choosing the Black or Real Earth. The salesguy said something like black cars are hard to spot in night and hence a lighter color makes more sense. He also mentioned a point (to which I agree) that Real Earth color doesn't show dust so easily unlike black.

I had conveniently forgotten about this and suddenly it occured to me when I saw the pics of this car.

Woah Woah! Awesome is the word! Now all it needs is some lowering springs, tints, and smoked taillights! Oh and not to forgot, one hot sounding ffe to maych the beasty looks!

Which paint did you use?

PS : Why is the aerial antenna at the front left corner of the roof? I feel it would look best at the middle at the rear of the roof.
