But I know Pioneer is way better than both and output is excellent compare to both(MMI/Caska). Only problem is installation and looks. If you or ur friends already installed it please take pic and post here. It will be helpful.
You have a good setup but the Original ICE wont be able to give that much of output hence you require a change for sure. I just enquired with my guy here in Opera House the Head Unit there are 2 types one is complete screen and one has a side panel control seeing that you already have the Woofer and Amp and wiring kit your expenditure should be as follows.

Pioneer 5690BT+ Dashboard Panel + Socket Cable + Camera + Labour= 29000+2500+250+750+1000 = 33500/- ( This is a high end system )

Pioneer 2690BT + Dashboard Panel + Socket Cable + Camera + Labour= 23000+2500+250+750+1000= 27500/- ( The Perfect Combination )

About Map My India & Steering Control is a Personal Choice and price will vary from city to city even the price which i have mentioned above is from a good accessories shop providing warranty for all the products. If i search the market much properly i can easily save another 3-4k from each of the above mentioned sets.

I have a picture of one of the guys who has done it but has also given wood finish to his dashboard panel so don't judge the looks on that just see how the fitting of the tape would look.

In the end we can just give suggestions but its you who has to decide best for your car. Hope this information helps you a bit.

Pioneer 5690BT from snapdeal.com = Rs.19557/- Will go for this one, I like large screen [:)]
Pioneer 2690BT from snapdeal.com = Rs.15281/-

Also installation from snapdeal.com will take around Rs.450/- that too at my home.

Pioneer - AVH X5690BT - LCD Touchscreen DVD Player - Buy Online @ Snapdeal.com

Only problem is camera and dashboard panel, where to get from? I can get camera online but dashboard panel?

Hello Dr Mudhan

I recently bought 2014 Honda city SV model. Wanted some guidance on pure leather seat covers. Are they really worth the money? I've enquired a few places in Bangalore and they cost north of 45,000.[confused]

Great so you have got a better deal. The rate i had mentioned were from an authorized Pioneer outlet hence the price. Anyways seeing that your second location being mumbai why dont you purchase the camera and panel on your visit here. If the visit aint soon then surely some delhi member will be able to help you on this.

Even I thought but didnt wanted to pay that amount, just went for bucket fitting seat leather type. Not actual leather but quite good just for 3k in Karol Baugh Delhi.

I have 2014 Honda City IDtec SV model. Recently I got autoform semi leather seat covers, It costs Rs 8400. Looks wise its very good but in summer its very hot. It takes few minutes to cool down after switching on the AC. My monthly usage is less than 1000 Km so its not a problem for me.

Wow thats so good price. Is it readymade or they have to stitch for your car? And is it fixed or removable for washing?

I have asked many car shops in my city market and all of them said, no readymade seat covers instead they will to stitch which would take 2+ days plus a day for fitting.

Prices were 5k for normal woolen, 8k+ for fake leather and rexine, cotton priced around that price. [roll]

Thanks...
Best Regards

I paid exactly 2800/- for fake leather and they are super smooth, some times people ask me like those are real leather seats?....

That amount includes everything and 2 hours for installation. Bucket fitting not normal covers those cant be removed just like normal cover that u can remove and clean. But bucket fitting is just like company fitted covers. If you go for normal cover then those will cost little less like 400-500/-

I bought them from Karol Bagh Delhi. Very famous auto market in Northern India. So competition is very high there. So everything is super cheap but need to be aware of fake things too specially electronics.

Awesome. Wish I was there. [cry]

BTW; you missed one query. Are those ready-made (only needs installation) or they first need to stitch?

Ready made, they even have stitching there if you want something thats not there... they have all types of fake leather with them. Just choose and they will give you same day or max next day.

If you dont like from the ready made. choose between types, styles will be ready :)
