    So making one, all who own this car or want to own one are allowed to share their views, problems, pics etc of their car.

    Clay the car first.
    For whites use a synthetic wax, although i use a carnauba, Dodo Juice.

    These marks would hopefully go away with a clay or a cleaner wax. When using compound with hand dont worry too much about destroying the paint, the intensity of the compound becomes much less when used with hand comparative to a rotar.

Afterall shampoo is a chemical, harms surface and makes it dry. So no shampoo either on regular basis, except if polishing car. Best is to wax your car once a week and the rest of days you dont need to wash again. Just light dusting and wiping of cloth keeps your car clean for a few days once its waxed, unless it doesn't rain. Rain spots and marks also get avoided if it rains on a waxed surface. The hard stains of rain and water spots you observe after rain on your car dont come up if its waxed. This all is my experience and what i personally do to my cars. For tyres also using tyre wax (available in spray cans) keeps them black for a long time.

    After washing car, for drying, use slightly damp "Chamos" or "3M" synthetic cloth to lightly wipe off water instead of ordinary cloth.

    Best car waxes in order of their quality:
    1. Meguair's (Rs.2800)
    2. Sonax-extreme (Rs.2200)
    3. Ma-fra (don't remember)
    4. K2, hard wax (Rs.650, a good wax in low budget but difficult to use)

    I personally don't like 3M because they attract dust. Most horrible wax i have ever experienced is Formula1 as it sucks dust from a mile away (though its good for a single step DIY after compound finish)

    There are shampoos which are PH balanced which do not cause anything but cleaning, most car shampoos of good brands are wax safe and must be used to get rid of the car dust EVERYTIME you wash the car, washing a car without shampoo wont clean away the dust and grime. And you dont only shampoo before waxibg, whenever you wash your car, shampoo it.

    Ure rite at your part, but there are a lot of things these product manufacturers say which are not true. Even the pH balanced ones are not necessary if your car is already clean of spots and marks but you only want to wash for dust. Ive tried lots of stuff trust me, and shampoos do leave a sort of drying effect as compared to normal washing. Notice the way water dries while washing and after car is dry feel the surface with back of your fingers. So i dont preffer doing a shampoo unnecessary if its not required.

    As far as wash & wax products are concerned: Honestly dear friends, i really dont think there are shampoo+wax products. They just can't be, shampoo is something else and wax is something else. In my opinion all products available here that say "wash & wax" or such double action stuff is a lie. How can a car shampoo leave surface waxed when you wash with it? Think. All wax making companies would go bankrupt if such magical potions existed. Waxing is a process and this process cant be there in a shampoo liquid, microscopic magical pixies sitting in a shampoo liquid holding wax in there hands that secretly climb the car when we apply shampoo

    I just found out something very shocking!

    i went to get my grandfathers 7th gen civic tuned from my local honda dealership and there i saw atleast 3 9th gen civics parked with their engines ruined. The mechanics told me that the "air box" which is located at the level of the headlights of the 7th gen is located at the level of the fog lights in the 9th gen.

    The mechanics very strictly asked me NOT to drive in flooded areas

    apparently the water enters the "air box" and then goes into the main engine block ruining the con rods and pistons. the mechanics have to replace it all

    for details and pics to see what i am referring to to , check out post 543 here: https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...-navigation-28

    It would be mentioned on the instructions mannual also it would say wax safe, good brands dont lie so blatantly. Also the dilution of shampoo with water plays an inportant role.

    Dont was your car with just plain qater and then clean it down with a cloth/MF, you will end up scratching the paint. Shampoo it and wax it once a week with a good wax.

    A lot depends on the dilution of the shampoo, the hardness if the tap water being used, and good brands dont lie too blatantly. Talking about the touching bit after shampooing, static charge also comes into play then. Over the 7-8 years of detailing experience with almost every good brand i have come down to this conclusion. But to each his own

    Yes Cheetah good brands dont lie but honestly i think the ones saying "wash+wax" and "2-in-1" types are not true. Im sure even u dont believe that.

    Go for DLAA fog lights, available around 5-6k or so. Fit on factory grips as Honda have already provided wiring in bumpers for the hardtop version too.

    Can someone post a detailed review of the manual variant of civic? What would I be missing in it compared to the prosmatec variant? I've been driving auto for 4-5 years now and I'm sick of it. Will I get tired driving the manual variant or is it fun and thrilling? Will I still get the features such as Cruise control as in the Auto variant?

    No cruise control in manual. You'll love revving up the engine on tight overtakes and on empty roads but if u travel in rush areas you'll hate manual car drive

    Except for the Auto- stuff, nah, both are pretty identical.
