The retractable mirror motors can be found from Kabar markets and can be installed into VTi mirrors (without lights one) I will get it done after the warranty; it will be "cool" to interface it with the Keyless Entry; blink blink blink, mirrors fold.....blink, and mirrors unfold...this way you will not need any button in the dash...saaf suthra kaam ho jaye ga
As for the resale Khurram bhai, only time can tell what will be the worth of our rides after two years. Hopefully, we'll get what we invested. If some decent person who knows and appreciates quality/aesthetics comes across as a buyer, then it'll be okay otherwise I'll have to remove and fit back in the the stock speakers, remove the steering wheel controls and install steel rims/full hub caps and tires. But in a salary alone, its very difficult to upgrade specially when the difference alone is over 3-4 lacs.
Enthusiasts/hobbyists are encouraged to check Building a PIC18F USB device - WFFwiki; it will be "SUPER COOL" to have 2 DIN Car Computer; running Windows 8 (which is due early next year ); with some setup as given in the URL; basically controlling Windows 8 using these Steering Controls
Fouad Bh; went to the contact for "thai wala bumper"; big disappoitment; its the same as PKDM; its just made in thailand...i-e original one that we get in the cars...he even supplies the bumpers to local Honda dealers that they then sell at OEM rates
Found the facelift backlights in that market for 22k. Also found yet another in-dash unit...pictures in next post
This new in-dash thing is 20k; and its without SATNAV
There is a color difference between Rockmars and this new in-dash thing. The built quality and finish of Rockmars feels better; this new one's got bigger screen and better lcd angle i think...as per shopkeeper its sound quality and display quality is better than Rockmars
Sorry for the poor pictures; the shop was in basement
Don't even believe a word of what the shopkeeper tells you. He WILL sell you the one he's got better margin in and with sound warranty. Get both unit checked side by side. Large screen warrants more pixels. Do check the resolution and since it's local quality Chinese, chances are that you won't get exactly whats in the specs.
A guy is selling me Octagonal tail lamps for 9000/- in exchange with my OEM ones. Watcha say?
Secondly, the same guy is demanding 4K for smoked Headlamps in EXCHANGE to my OEM one.
This sounds too good to be true somehow. But do check for repairs, alterations, buffing etc like Sardar Saeed pointed out. But I strongly suggest you retain your genuine head lamps and tail lights (as a brotherly advice)
The OEM lamps sell better in such shops...I forgot; but I think the backlights were ~16k; he is definitely having such 4-5k margin. But then if you "really" want the facelift backlights; getting it for ~9k is not that bad...
For me; there is no attraction in these octagonal lights and smoked headlamps...but you are young; and these things will look "cool" on your rides
So what is your attraction in by the way (if I may ask). Have you recently followed behind an 8th Gen with the Octagonal or just parked your ride to one and compared both. Even compare them both during day time. The new Octagonal (Diamond) Lights are more richer and deep in colors and clarity, make no mistake about it.
Yes you're right. As i have to count on my father for all the financing, he was not not very much interested in smoked headlamps as he found less then minor difference.
Lets see when i loose my mind and buy them
Huh, I've lost my mind so many times and with such great input and contributions by you guys, I think, I'll keep on losing my mind..........
Above happened (its after repair / "qalm") when I took the car to the suburb of Faisalabad! This was my only issue when buying Civic; its great car to drive on good roads; but taking it to such places; not a good idea...Its like taking your ultra-mod girl-friend to dhaba for dhoodh putti and cake russ
