benbsb29 Thanks a lot for the wishes. :) 26th September 2011
BurningHeart Great set of picture. Nice. 25th September 2011
benbsb29 Thanks Jayabusa! I try to click 'em as appealing as i can. 2nd December 2010
Jayabusa Nice car, great pics. The locations are splendid. 15th September 2010
benbsb29 @Utopian : Thanks for the comments. I agree with you, the facelift isnt too much to my liking either. Between, i still dont comprehend why they went down to 13"ers from 14"ers on the Ikon. 30th May 2010
Utopian The old Ikon still looks so fresh with that honeycomb grille. The face lift isn't that exciting especially with those puny 13" shoes. 15th May 2010
benbsb29 Anirban, i absolutely detest the looks without the wheelcaps! So, never clicked any pics without 'em. 5th April 2010
1100D Any pics of the car without the wheelcaps? 4th April 2010
