well,like it or not qqplus,but Old design of Honda City isn't available since past 1 1/2 years..
Dude,go in for New one..it's better in terms of Fuel efficiency,Interiors,Interior space and also Trunk space..
Only drawback is power specs..but once you test drive it,doesn't feel underpowered at all..and yeah..few had thought of the new shape as a bit weird,but now,people have started accepting it,infact,many have started liking it ..after few mods like wider tires with neat set of alloys it will look cool.
btw,got a call from the dealer..car is expected on monday,13th June...so,hopefully,delivery should be within 5 working days after 13th june !

Dealer(Ichibaan Honda,Worli) says it takes around 4 working days for them to complete the Insurance and RTO Registration procedure on any vehicle..so,counting about 5 days more for delivery after they get the car in their showroom.

Hey.. was planning to fit in these alloys in Black NHC..they're not chrome..but look cool..
They are K-Speed 14 inch imported alloys..or should I go in for Chrome Indian neowheels alloys?

Default New Black NHC FINALLY DELIVERED !

Well,guys,after a long wait time of 7 weeks,I FINALLY got the car !

Here is the pic. of the car on the day of delivery -


And here is one more pic. after Teflon polymer coating + Hard Chrome alloys.


I am planning to fit in a Pioneer CD/MP3 head unit with Kicker or SoundStream 6 speaker component audio system,and PU coated seat covers.As for window tints,I've decided for V-Kool,but will fit them in after the rains.
Car had logged 65kms when I took delivery from Ichibaan Honda,Worli.

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.
You bought the Honda on a credit card? Why would you do that?

The alloys are also available in Silver Polish finish,but I had read reviews on which ones look good,and got to know from the forum that Chromes look best for Black NHC..so,went in for chrome..but they are available in Silver Polish finish also.
I had inquired with the dealer about launch of NHC VTEC..he said probably early next year..but Honda Civic(price tag around Rs11,00,000 is going to be launched this year around Nov.-Dec.
