hi vichu for how much did you buy those frameless wipers and the company name please
It costed me around 400 rs and i believe it was a company named Universal.[:)]

Dear Friends,, I am owning a Honda Amaze Ex Idtec..Using in trivandrum. Kindly help me regarding Glove Box Vibration. !
What kind of vibration is it ? You sure it's the Glove box ? Like when u press or keep the glove box, does the vibration disappears ?

1 Year 11 Months 25 Days [evil]

Up for the 50 k service. I believe the brake pads are up for a change and even the long due fuel filter. Hoping for the best[:D]

Hi All,
I am new to this forum. I own a Amaze Diesel.
Planning to install Alloys and Extra fog lamps. Decided on Hella 500FF.
Has anyone installed these kind of lights in Amaze? Mine is a base model and i would like to know the installation tricks since its a covered/ tight space

Got my Honda Amaze (black panther) a under body shield and anti-corrosive shield from silencer from 3m care care Chennai anna nagar yesterday (8-7-15) after 2years of taking the delivery of the car.
Took a 2 year warranty coat. The manager Megananthan and staff Praveen were amicable and explained the procedure before starting the work. I had the right to go and check the work anytime in the garage.
Took couple of photos and showed them the areas were the coating has not penetrated. They made sure it was re-done and did a complete inspection in the end.
The washed my car exterior as a complement
The did excellent work I was happy, content and satisfied.

Hi Jagan,

Good to see your car protected before the rainy season in chennai.[clap]
Planning to do the same to my Amaze 6 months old[:)] , But I'm bit confused to choose between 2 yr and 5 yr warranty coat.
I'm in Ambattur, so will be choosing Anna Nagar 3M car care.
How much was the total cost for under body shield and anti-corrosive shield for silencer.

Thanks,
Vicky.

Thanks Jagan[:)] Y didn't you go for that 5yr warranty coating?
No specific reasons Vicky only thing is that I thought I will keep upgrading every two years so that my black panther gets new coat , 5years is pretty long I felt.
But the manager in 3m told me that vehicles from honda Toyota have good under chassis treatment done by the company so he said 2 year wrranty will serve the purpose

Wow, so you covered 50k within 2 year!. congrats man, what else I say :)
Thank you. Car is pretty happy in munching miles, it seems :)

The petrol one's are having an alloy width of 5J and the diesel one's are having width of 5.5J . I'm running on 7J [evil]

Try any darker shades to get the contrast. Stick to Branded alloys. It will surely be a little heavy on the pocket when compared to replica one's but definitely worth the penny spend.

I've seen few Amaze with Hella's they do look good and OK. Try not to pierce the bumber and do customized clamps for holding the Hella's in place.

That is one drooling wonderful job. Pictures says a lot. Great work there !!

DIY of the glove compartment with felt fabric in my black panther
Great work there mate. Was thinking of doing something similar. What are the advantaged on the long run ? Is there any disadvantages ?


50,000km's Service Done

Merits so far :

  • Brake pads still have life for at least 10k kms.
  • Fuel filter finally changed. Fuel filter price has been dropped by 50% by Honda to bring down the Service cost. Smart move there Honda !
  • No serious issue with the engine or electronics. Everything working fine.
Demerits so far :

  • There is some kind of suspension noises with the rear suspension. They told it was fixed but i still feel the same.
  • There is some kind of vibration that I've always mentioned. The only single vibration in the cabin. Went on a detailed inspection and came to know that it's from the engine cabin and they've offered to find it out and rectify it provided a day for them to totally dismantle everything from the left front end and re fixing. I was busy the day,so thought of doing it another day.

Let the picture's speak now :

The service people checking on the vibration issue. It only pops up when the turbo kicks in linearly. Wonder what's the problem.[confused]
