Planned to make a couple of changes namely
- Tyre Upgrade to a from 175/65 R15 to 195/65 R15 (Energy XM2 or Primacy LC) - As this makes a huge difference in the handling of the car and road grip which I experience in my OLD Honda City ZX.
- add the reverse parking sensor (I don't know if that makes sense) as the car has reverse parking camera but no sensors.
- Rear Trunk Spoiler (Though the car looks sleek without that too)
- 3M Sunfilm (Clear Version which actually protects maximum heat, need to research on it.)
Your upgrades sound in the right way buddy.First for the tyres, The tyres are very skinny for the size of the car and the power they make. Grip is very limited too under hard accelaration so its a good thing that you upgrade to 195/65/R15. Fuel economy might take a toll but that's a small price you make for handling. If you are a sedate driver then the 175 itself does fine but its better to go for 195s.
Secondly, reverse sensors. Its a must buddy. Reverse Camera only shows you the rear view but not the corners of the bumper. So if you install them you get the sound from the corner so that you can stop. If you look at the reverse camera and take reverse in a tight place it's sure that there are chances the rear corners of the bumper might take a beating as view is for the back only. And taking reverse in the City is a pain staking process too. High dash and parcel tray limits rear visibility to an extent so you are better of with rear parking sensors.
Thirdly rear trunk spoiler. Not sure about it but yea it does enhance the looks better and helps a bit in aerodynamics too
. So if you like it go for it. Beware Honda OEM
accessories are expensive So spoilers are available aftermarket too.
And the last 3M sunfilms. Get them. They do their job extremely well. I had put it for my Vento and itd damn good so 3M is a good bet. Do update me with your vehicle buddy.
