Do you own an ANHC?
Are you going to buy one?
Are you in search of something to make your car special?
You are in a right thread!
This is a part of my primary thread - My New Honda City in White - The Albus
in our TAI
forum under ownership reviews. It became necessary to make a thread under this head to make the search engine recognise and make persons like you to land on the right place.
I always wanted to be unique and thus my car too.
What would be interesting to you from my thread?
How did I make some small changes, how did I find the best car antenna, best perfume & many new extra fittings, how did I get the good shiner…and also how did I waste my money which I would like to share with you in my next write up and equally I am eager to learn from you.
I was hunting for some good and special extra fitting. I did make some changes. Every one item I bought has its own story. I will share with you one by one.
Certain things I made with the dealer. Something in my car greatly disappointed me. Even after spending so much in the EMT model, no rear speakers, not even a remote control for the factory fitted audio head units. Forget about steering control. I don’t know how much Honda going to save by not providing a remote for a car model sold for almost 8 to 9 lacs. Otherwise the quality of the HU is same as higher versions. I bought the original Honda tweeters (Rs.3500/-) as it nicely fit into the A pillars- no double side tape business. One mistake I did. I have bought side protectors from Honda which I felt the price Rs.6500/- is very much higher side and also they could not give me the latest silver line embedded one.
I wanted the fog lamps for the new type of bumpers but after knowing the price, I started thinking whether I did a mistake of buying a Honda city car. Of course any one will feel that it is atrocious, the price is Rs.20000/-.
It seems that once I started to own an ANHC, I am rich (virtually) and should not bother about money or price.
I started exploring something good, cheaper from outside. But getting good quality which suits ANHC was not that easy. I purchase certain things from ebay.in but could not use it. For example a universal gear knob but not suited for ANHC gear lever rod. A steering wheel cover but the rubber smell was hell. But certain things from US ebay worked well. Original type fog lamps, beautiful AC knobs about which I will share with you later. I am really happy after finding an online Chinese web side ‘AliExpress’ and most of them are honest sellers. But one should have so much patient before receiving it- it would take 20 to 60 days; should do some research before placing an order.
I am going to share many more of my experience, but with a word of ‘disclaimer’ that it is no way a sales promotion. If you like it take a risk and go for it or try to find a better one and share your experience to others. Thanks.
The detailed write up would be in my main thread. I would be giving you here many links, which would make you to know more about ANHC across the world. There will be more DIY links too!
I hope you will like it. THREAD POSTINGS
