I really ADMIRE (oops! Li..a effect) Honda owners. We are all in awe of them. After all they are articulate and knowledgeable which helps us to be guided by them. See, that happens only because Honda chooses to sell their cars only to the extremely knowledgeable and articulate people.

What! No Vid. That's impossible. Nothing can happen to a Honda. The I-Vtec engine is so advanced that even if you put acid in it, it will return 25kmpl with extremely good performance. In fact, it's only in India that Honda's require servicing. Everywhere else in the world, Honda's don't need any servicing.

What stunning shots? Look at the side profile of the Linea and the City. The Linea looks so ordinary and outdated and the City...well it's a Honda after all!

Frankly, the only car (or whatever you call it) that looked bad in black was the Xylo. M&M surely should have some special talent.

this is the limit dude . When was the last time HONDA used the "admire" word? HONDA seem to be having nightmares and they are doing everything they can to counter the LINEA effect.This is apparent in the behavior change of the usually extremely snobbish HONDA sales/dealers .

Maruti fudged ANHC figures so that SX4 looks good in comparison. Tell me, do you support fraud? Thats why Honda has lodged a complaint.

We still don't know if its Maruti or a dealer. Unless that's clear, blaming Maruti would be wrong.

PS: I have no intentions of getting banned or receiving an Infraction. Let's just stick to the topic everyone.

What is wrong in using the word 'admiration'? Actual phrase is 'Enjoy the admiration'. Tell me what is wrong?

Honda's ad shows that they think Linea is a threat to their City, whether honda fans agree or not is different matter.
