1.Information meter is very useful, tells which exact door is open, trunk, low fuel warnings, fuel avg, clock etc.my opinion this technology must be atleast 30000PKR?!comments....
You are seriously joking right? 30,000 PKR? All this information is read off the ECU. Integrating the additional features like journey time elapsed and fuel economy should cost no more than a couple of thousand rupees to the MANUFACTURER!
2.Leather seats honda charged 40000more in the last shape.althu they gave retrac mirrors too...minus 10000 for the machinery?
The charges were 30,000 when I got my UG Civic back in 2004.
The "retractable machinery" costs 20,000 RS with labor and fitting. And I know this because some fool took the liberty of taking them off my 02 Vti.
5.Led high mount stop lamp....5k?!
The manufacturing cost of LEDs is cheaper than traditional light bulbs, I'd say it costs the same.
6.EPS is very useful atleast 8-15k?
Not even remotely, again to the MANUFACTURER, I am willing to bet the difference is 5K RS tops.
3.Cruise control and triptronic must atleast cost 75k-100k?!had even a competitor launched it.
Cruise control systems from ROSTRA (the company who supplies to Toyota) cost $250 to the END CONSUMER. To the manufacturer they probably cost less than $100. Did I mention my Civic has cruise controls with buttons on the steering wheel? The OEM CC adapter just cost me $150 (that includes all their profit).
Tiptronic does not cost anything extra as such, its mostly software intervention which changes the automated shift mode to manual. Thats the same with Steermatic (7 speed manual).
First thing i noticed the ignition key had an impressive orange light round it...the pioneer player is superior to civics and so is the speaker quality.
The pioneer player is nothing great, sure it is probably better than the crappy kenwood Honda USED to give with Civic. Check out the new dash-integrated player with CD changer. That has an AMP as well and sounds very good (y)
The point of the matter is, it doesn't cost as much as you think-- it is overpriced period. The car is decent, but nothing to rave about. Unfortunately the price will kill its sales.
