    Default Booked a 9th Gen Honda Civic oriel Prosmatic

    Well as the title says i have booked a 9th gen Civic, will be delivered by the end of coming week. I needed some suggestions regarding its detailing. Since its BLACK in color which is not easy to maintain but ill try my best to keep it nice and shiny. Kindly guide me with the following queries :

    1) Since it will be a new car so in order to protect its paint i was wondering if i should apply a SEALANT or not after getting it ? If so then kindly suggest which one.

    2) Also suggest me a nice wax. Would a liquid wax be better or paste wax ? (suggest the one which is easier to apply/clean as i am new at this)

    3) I already have turtle f21 interior detailer. Is it good for 9th gen civic's interior ?

    4) I would be applying/cleaning wax and sealant by hand (no buffer) so kindly suggest me the products accordingly as i am not an expert in detailing.

    5) Also tell me about this Meg's Drying water magnet cloth and drying techniques. I have hardly washed a car myself twice in life and when dried it there were dry water spots all over so never tried my hands at washing the car myself again.

    Hoping to hear soon all of your expert advices.

    Well buddy Grande is equally good and i definitely would have gone with it but unfortunately my 2013 corolla was stolen from my house so now my primary concern was safety of the car so i went with civic this time as it comes with immobilizer. But then again it all comes down to personal preferences and choices so buy what u like both are equally good i guess.

    And about delivery time Grande's delivery time is nowhere before December(i checked it last week). And civic's delivery time is 10 to 12 days depending upon the color if u go for white u might get it sooner than that.
    All the best for car n let us all know when u get ur new car IA

    No body kit, great decision! I personally hate HID's. If by white portion you mean the reflectors on the trunk then a few members have opened up the reflectors and put a light in there. Looks lovely. (Check out @InNoCeNt_DeViL ride.)
    What I would do is firstly get it wrapped in 3M to protect the paint. Then put some gold/bronze 17' rims on it with 205 or 215 tyres and adjust the ride height according to the rims and tyres. Get day light running lamps and boom. Done!

    Yes i hv plans of installing bulb in that reflector and about rims i personally love bigger rims but i would be sticking with the stock as i dont want to sacrifice comfort of ride :-)
