    Default City 2012 Rear Lights Modified

    hi there. aoa guys. so finally got the time to get the work done for which i was waiting since pretty long. got the idea from @Legal_rebel for whom i m thankful for the guidance to the mod.

    so this is how it goes. when u turn the parking light on, only one bulb is illuminated and when the brake is applied, the light on the extreme most also glows. the inner most portion of the lights (right next to the number plate) never glows, and neither is a reflector as that is placed next to the reverse light. actually there is a space made there where the civic grip comes perfectly in it, but these Honda thieves have not given us an extra bulb to save the cost, and instead have sealed that place. so all that is needed to be done is to remove the plastic portion and fix the holder , and u r good to go. so i installed a double filament bulb there so that it can be used for both parking and brake. furthermore, i also replaced the farthest most bulbs (the ones which only turn on with the brakes) to double filament so that they also serve the dual purpose. i didnt touch the center bulb (for parking light) but altered it as such that it only glows when the brakes are applied. attaching the pictures...i personally love this setup of the lights much much more than the standard arrangement, which i actually find pretty boring
    Enjoy

    cost me around 1.5k (yes its a lot...i know)
    the center light houses a single filament bulb and i left it as such. on brake, the side bulbs produce bright light because of having the double filament, and the center bulbs turns on with the normal brightness because it is single filament. i wanted to get the double in it too, but he said there would have to be some alteration in the holder, so i said leave it like this. doesnt look bad at all though

    Parking : Side bulbs only
    Brakes : Side Bulbs Bright + Center Bulb normal

    sir jee my car is insured. but the insurance guys say that get it done but then whole boot will have to repainted , which i dont want at all. dry denting wont help cause there is another metallic lining inside the boot which will have to be removed, and that again would have to be welded back and boot repainted. the ONLY solution is to change the complete diggi, which i might do one day. but i m not repainting the diggi at any cost
