hi bro... m new to ur thread... must say, u have done an awesome job wd ur city... just awesome...
i have city 2011 in red pearl colour. me too had it sound deadened as its not much silent as compared to previous model. but i did wd some foam and dynamat.
the arm rest, and the thingy behind the mirror is present in my car. don't know why u had to install them later.
and also, one more future suggestion. a bit expensive but a total decent shashka. its cruise control. u just need a new clockspring and a new steering wheel wd cruise buttons.
it will take you 30 mins to install hardly and an electrician abt 20. just google some intrument cluster, clockspring and ecu wiring diagrams and there u go... i am working on this project for the first city with cruise control but sadly i am out for some family medical issue..
see if u can do this to urs as well.... best of luck for ur future..
thumbs up and cheers.
