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':
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):
Work being done...
Result (not the best of pics, but yeah)
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!:
See this video for a short demo of these bad boys at work!!

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 :
All finished! Such an outstanding, professional job - no small time painter could pull it off like this. Still missing some nice center caps which are on order...
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:
