Wow!! WHAT A THREAD
Absolutely Amazing. I have written a lot of material online but this is by far the best thread that I have come Across.
First of all, Let me introduce myself.
I stay in Pune and have completed my Commercial Pilot Training in the US.
I have an established Business of Power Tools (SKIL by BOSCH) and other industrial items and Machinery here.
I am an avid photographer and Sportsperson, Not to mention a CAR LOVER
I do all the maintenance and cleaning of my car myself. My wife says that my cars are my first love.
I used to write reviews by test driving new cars and covering their launches on CarTradeIndia from 2008 to 2012.
I currently own a 2012 Honda City VAT (Sunroof Model) (Will post pictures sometime later)
It is quite feature packed but after reading parts of this article I think Dr Mudhan’s EMT might have more bells and whistles than mine
I have begun reading the article word by word but it may take some time before I manage to complete it
The VAT Sunroof comes with Original Company fitted Leather Seat Covers (I maintain them using Meguire’s Leather Protector)
-I have a CASKA system onboard (Pathetic system if you consider screen quality and sound if you ask me, but unfortunately I am stuck with it for the time being)
-I have a full time OBD2 device. I used to import them earlier so I use the UltraGauge. It has served me well over the last couple of years. Costs about 7K including customs UltraGauge OBDII Scan tool & Information Center
-I also have a beautiful CCD Reverse Camera and Reverse Sensors
-I have put 3D mats (Absolute must in any car if you ask me. Once you install them you will wonder how you ever managed without them). Got the Rockstar make from Snapdeal for 2250/-
-I have LED (White) Dome lights which are quite powerful. I am also getting LED foot lamps shortly.
-I also have Blue LED door Scuff (sill) Plates installed.
-For Wipers I have the BOSCH Clear Advantage (I have used Hella Dynaedge to and these are definitely better)
-Horns have been changed to ROOTS Windtone (which are louder and sound similar to SKODA horns)
Now I have sanctioned some budget for the remaining modification that I am looking at. Hopefully with the points in the article and your advice I should get it done easy.
-I have ordered the Shark Fin antenna from AliExpress, thanks to Dr Mudhan.
-I am planning on converting all lights (Brake, Parking, Reverse, License Plate and Fog Lamps) to LED – Having some difficulty, since I have not been able to figure out the type of sockets and the LED sizes required. Reading the article will help me I am sure.
-I have ordered Flip Keys from AliExpress for 600/- Uncut 2 Button Flip Remote KEY Shell Case for Honda Crv Accord Fit Civic Free Shipping-in Alarm Systems & Security from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com
(Aparently the Immobilizer unit is in the Remote and by just swapping the electronic unit and duplicating the key the car should work just fine. No need to cut the original key) Will post when I receive it and whether it works or not.
-Thinking of putting Philips Diamond Vision (although have not researched much on that yet)
Some future modification as and when money permits are
Bi-Xenon Projectors and LED Strip for the Headlights.
Engine START / STOP function
Hybrid Installation for Petrol Cars (Revolo)
