    Internationally, Honda civic 8th gen sedan comes with front rotors of 10.2" diameter.
    In 2012 when 9th gen was launch it was launched with the same size of front rotors
    but in 2013 the front rotors of 9th gen were upgraded to 11.1" and bigger calipers.
    Keep in mind bigger rotors, bigger calipers means bigger disk pads and more contact area for braking.

    but in Pakistan the brake rotors of 9th gen remain 10.2" which are not enough if used with OEM tyre size.
    they result in early ABS engagement and lack of braking grip

    4. Start up Delay

    so I called Honda and asked them to get me the latest 2nd Generation Android DVD Navigation. I paid the difference as they adjusted the old one that still was in Warranty.

    Below are few pictures when he Tracking World Installer was removing the installed unit from the car.

    Eager to see you do 10. Lane watch assistance Camera connected to i-MID display

    I tried to do this, ended up blowing reverse camera switch fuse. It was latched onto some wiring under the right foot panel, thankfully no further damage.

    I agree the brakes aren't good on this car especially if you're a little faster than normal
    Abs kicks in still the car goes
    Had a couple of very very near misses due to this
    My previous corolla was better though it was on 17s
