Have a look here http://www.alloywheelsindia.com/index.php for popular alloys designs. Regarding the kit, I have no clue in Bangalore,as I was there for only a year and had not got anything for my car from there. But I am sure other civic owners from bangy might be able to help you. Good luck!

Yes, from ebay.in. Search 'Honda' only and you should be able to find it.

You might be already aware the gear lever with the stock knob is elongated, making it a bit uncomfortable. This new rounded knob makes the gear lever shorter, and just about the right length (good ergonomics like those in beemers). And yeah, feel good to hold. This is how it looks like on my civvy

Nice... I am awaiting mine. Good to see the pics of how it will look in our Indian civic.

Good looking alloys these (after painting). Congrats...

finally, found a decent pedal sets especially made for the civic from ebay. It includes the pad for the foot rest panel too (beneath the first layer).

Couple of additions made today

1. Installed HID 6000 K on high, low and fog lights

2. Got the pedals installed

I am now looking at performance mods and was wondering how to get started. I am not a hardcore racer, but I am open to any mods that will infuse better low end grunts and acceleration. I am also tempted for a turbo, after seeing some of our own BHPians's civic, but am concern about long-term reliability. Are turbos inherently not reliable and non-lasting?

Very good setup. Is your accelerator pedal touching the mat and is there a chance to get stuck. Just asking since there have been problems with that.

The pedals look really nice. Could you point me to the source on eBay?

Great looking pedals (except those cheesy Civic monograms)!!! Ordered!

FYI, I had ordered the same gear knob in Feb but the shipment never arrived and was lost! Put the Refund case with Paypal and the seller is now saying he is only left with 6 speed ones! Let's see where it goes from here....

Thanks Rohit! Yeah, tried to rub off the civic monogram, but won't come out. Left the trouble anyway . The 6 speed gear knobs are find too, you will kinda enjoy the exclusivity. Regarding the pedals, hurry, as when I was ordering, only 2 of them were left with the seller.

Already ordered last night when I posted that, sir... and about that Mugen emblem, should that be on the Rear Spoiler! e.g. in this post

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ml#post1570664 (JDM Type R Spoiler for Civic S)

It looks pretty cool never the less!
