    Default Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation

    <br>
    The truely unique (ongoing) transformation of my 2011 CITY!


    When i came to Pakistan after a long time my father bought me my first car here, a 2011 Honda CITY. And so, the love affair began.
    I loved the car because of its wicked looks and style but slowly got bored of seeing it so stock because of SO many CITYs around! I just had to make mine different so it stood out from the others. This is where it all began.

    I will be posting up pics to show what i did from the start and what it looked like at each stage.



    What it looked like when i first bought it, pretty much stock + LED parking's, which was the first 'mod':

    Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation - 2vuara0
    Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation - 2dnrl1





    After about a year of running more or less standard, i added some DRLs (this was at the end of 2012, before most in PK even knew what DRLs were (A short while before this i had installed some 6000k HIDs myself in the standard halogen reflector housing):

    Result (not the best of pics, but yeah)
    Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation - 2lmxvex





    Next up: Angel Eye Bi-Xenon Projectors. When i went to the UK for a short break, all the cars there with HIDs had Projectors (uk road regulation). Coming back to my car with no projectors just desi HID bulbs in a halo-reflector, i felt really unprofessional with them so i got some big 3" Projectors (larger than the Accord's i think) imported from UK which my cousin brought over - this was a long day:

    Next up: White/Amber headlight DRL/Signal LED 'mod'. (Feb '14). These lights are the unique parts of my car as no one in Pakistan has them and it is difficult to set-up. They have the dual functionality of working as plain white DRLs for aesthetics, and an Amber element for the indicator/signal function!:

    Shoes. I've so badly wanted some nice wheels ever since i bought the car so i could replace those UGLY 'plates'. When i finally found something decent (and also had enough saved up from my allowance to even buy them) i swept them up without a second thought! They weren't in the best condition but i saw past that; i only had one image in mind of what i wanted them to ultimately look like. Alhamdulillah, they now do :

    They're now clothed with a fresh set of Dunlop SP Sport LeMans LM704, these tyres are still unavailable commonly in Pakistan.


    As of now (date of thread creation), the car looks like this:

    Next on the list is some bodykit, a lil spoiler and grille. (Followed by various others in the near future, if ALLAH wills)

    Don't particularly like these but that's down to personal preference. What about the bumpers? Facelift stock ones or some sort of body Kit?

    I'm still not 100% on those lights either, they're a little OTT for me tbh. But there's not much choice in the market for CITY tail-lights so its kinda hard. The only other ones available are these ones:

    Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation - ScreenShot2012 07 02at103721AM
    Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation - 28k7vwx


    But these ones seem way too sober to me, i bet to most people they won't even look any different! Hard choice...



    Not sure about the kit just yet, i haven't had the time to go and check up on these and see what's available around! Any suggestions?

    Thanks kid. And erm, not sure as i just said. I know that lip/valence kit will cost around south of 20k but have no idea of what proper bumpers will cost, i'd have to see how much more it costs - If anyone does know i'm all ears

    Ma Sha Allah what a beautiful car you got. Firstly brilliant color and well maintained. Headlamps are looking killer. Go for bar style rear lamps. Body kits imo don't go well on city.

    These lights are just like those ones i showed before, only difference being that these ones are blacked out right? These look cool too (Y)
    Yeah kit looks nice actually, but if u look closely at the paint, the whites don't match. I've been told even if the paint is the same, the material of the kit itself makes it look different - so for that reason people say go for plastic kits over fiberglass?

    Thanks bro . Tail lights will probs be the last thing I do tbh because I'm so undecided on them...
    What do u mean by bodykits don't go well? Are you talking about full bodykits, lips or anything to do with the body altogether?

    Lip kit design of city is too heavy. Yay gari aise hi achi lagti hai. Change the rear lights to smoked bar style will look hot on black color.

    Yes I actually realised the tail lights are the same! These ones are just smoked.
    I've no idea about paint differences but yes, some people do prefer plastic bodykit over fiber ones!

    Great add ons and the car is looking beautiful! Thumbs up! (Y)

    But I believe none of the stuff you installed is a rare find in Pakistan. Neither the DRLs nor the LeMans and all the things in between. Infact projectors for retrofit are easily available even on Pakwheels. Here is the pic of DRLs installed in my corolla in early 2014;

    Yeah that's defo, if i go for the 'lava' ones i will smoke them. My current stock tail lights are also smoked:

    Gradual customisation of my 2011 City + Headlights transformation - 2a5xi0y

    They look way darker in the photo though for some reason. They're not that dark in reality.

    I'm quite bored with the look of the car especially the body, only bodykit will distinguish the car further from the mainstream honda city so that's something i personally really wanna do

    Bodykits available are mugen 1, mugen 2, mugen rs, mugen rr, mugen rr advanced, modulo, dominator, INGS and some others i think parto is another. Not sure on individual pricing, though.

    But I believe none of the stuff you installed is a rare find in Pakistan. Neither the DRLs nor the LeMans and all the things in between. Infact projectors for retrofit are easily available even on Pakwheels. Here is the pic of DRLs installed in my corolla in early 2014;
    Thanks bro

    To clarify:
    I only said that one thing on my car was unique, though: the white/amber flashing LED Parking/Signal lights. I know my bumper grille DRLs aren't rare and i didn't say they were, i only said that i installed them before most people have, which is now, over a year later Sure, LM703s are widely available, but 704 series are not so easy to find. Emphasis: uncommon, not rare. Same with the Projectors, i didn't at all mention anywhere that they were unique or rare in any way. But mine aren't retrofit ones, there's no need to cut the headlight reflector with my pair (unlike retrofit ones). They're also not mostly chinese ones like the ones available here, they're Taiwanese and they're bigger than the average retrofit available here and project further, that's why i ordered them from the UK, that and they came with a guarantee.

    I think u may have missed the video i embedded of the lights at work, i am pretty confident your neons or anyone else's can't do that.
    Here's a direct link, you may need to watch it on a laptop or android phone (something that has flash, i.e. not iPhone safari):

    They flash amber with the car's respective indicators:
