Cool one dude, I've seen a few of them myself here in B'lore...cool ones..they are. I suggest 5 spoked alloys for the car...shine it properly and then take it out and burn rubber.

Well,I didn't book from Linkway,since Linkway is a bit far..I stay at Walkeshwar,and Ichibaan Service centre is at Worli,while Linkway is at Andheri..and I am gonna leave for States within 12 months or so,after completion of my graduation,and then my younger sister will be driving the car..and I'm sure it'll be a problem for her later on.Also,Linkway don't accept Credit Card payments for Car sales,while Ichibaan Honda do accept Credit Card payments for cars..and I wanted to pay whole amt. by Credit Card..so,went in for Ichibaan.
Well,I guess I'll surely be going in for 5 spoke alloys..but just am confused about whether to buy All Chrome Neowheels or Imported non-chrome ones.

Black NHC r abundant in bombay. My NHC CVT is black too, almost a year old now and boy did i have a hard time getting it.The CVT is produced in very small amounts and the demand is too high...i needed the car urgently last year and no bombay or for that matter no maharastra dealer could give me a definate date for delivery...some how my agent found out that there is one CVT lying with a honda dealer in gujrat and its black in color....sent my driver right away and hand to pay a premium of 10,000 ! for it. Once my family drove the CVT they loved it and my dad needed a 2nd one for my poona factory...again the hunt began but this time luckily linkway said it has a maroon color CVT ready ...i wasnt very happy with the color but i didnt really care coz i wasnt goin to drive it around,besides we had no other choice....again this time had to pay a premium of 15,000!
So basically the demand for the CVT is too high but its definatly worth the wait.... the car is perfect for city driving....fuel efficent and hassel free in traffic. But i thought honda would increase the number of CVT kits coming into india over the past one year but it seems this problem still remains.

Srasania,
i think he was asking what car you were graduating from.
But a MBBS degree and all sounds really cool.
Btw, even i haven't seen a black CVT yet.

Black NHCS are quite common in Mumbai city.

Check these alloys on a black NHC

Well,lamborghini..after this post of mine,I was asked by amitverma about from what I am graduating..so,by the look of it,I think he was asking graduating from which academic course..
Anyway,as from the car point of view..I'm graduating from Esteem LX July 1999 model..will soon sell off the Esteem once the NHC comes in..
Honda showroom people informed me that Honda will be rolling out their NHC with VTEC engine next year..not before that..I don't think they'll provide Automatic/CVT option with VTEC..

Wow.. so,I thnik they'll price the CVT VTEC City around the Rs10.5 lacs tag on-road Mumbai..since it'll be a good 7 speed CVT.,and current i-DSI engine CVT costs Rs8.66 on-road Mumbai.
By the way,Montoya..those alloys are kinda ok..not bad though..
I still haven't got a call from the dealer for the CVT yet !
Already been around 6 weeks now !
