@ Sumit -

Your car has helped me preparing a draft for my next car in my family, 2-3 years down the line!

This is what I would like to see in my garage.

An Exotica Red Punto MJD Emotion Pack

+ Petes box
+ Matte black alloys
+ Red OR Yellow brake calipers
+ Custom made projectors with HIDs with smoked headlamps
+ Blackened front grill
+ Blackened rear door glass
+ Some advanced ICE
+ at least 10 Scorpion badges and Abarth vinyls!!!


Should be good enough...

Hi Ace, Excellent pictures of your car, absolutely stunning. I hope you don't mind if I save these photos to my system. You must be enjoying your car as I can see. Keep Revving your Civic.

She is running like a dream, touch wood and I am enjoying her more than my GF now a days.

And no worries, feel free to download the pics if you like!

This is simple. Get the headlamp's inner lining painted matte black! AFAIK, Abarth Grande Punto headlamps cost a bomb!!!

Edit: Check them out! GBP 379.99

Partsworld-UK. Headlamps-Grande Abarth

They sure are expensive. I bought my abarth badges from partsworld itself.
I will get the inner lining painted matt black. Can you please PM/email me the details from where I can get it done?

Sorry for going OT on your thread. Lets concentrate on your civic now and continue this discussion elsewhere!!!

No worries mate. Back to the Shark, here is how Engine Start button pulses during late night drives!

Just need to figure out a way to make it really work!

In Manan's Civic, yes it used to work earlier! But at the moment, no it doesn't!

@ACE

nice to hear that the tires suit your requirements..just one advice be careful on Wet roads with A drives they are not enough grippy. Had a wild and very dangerous encounter almost loosing my life and my OHC.

by the way thanks for sharing that the start stop button is not a direct swap in terms of making it work. Yesterday was just on the verge of buying it on ebay.

thanks for help.

Yes you can, the aftermarket ones. What I am not sure of, if you can get same OEM finish in ANHC that is available in Civic (Type R button is a direct housing swap, you see)

I will certainly take care in wet conditions, Jatin. Thanks for bringing this up since I was reading Yoko A-Drive reviews and some of them have complained about wet condition grip levels. On dry surfaces though, the car feels as if it is on rails! The grip is that excellent. Wet conditions, I will find out more during mansoons.

Oh, you just need to put in a 40 amps relay to make it work, thats it. The trick is to figure out the correct connections on the relay!

As I have stated earlier, Engine start button is just another show off thing, but I like it!



Few more pics from Chandigarh TBHP meet on April 9th! (courtesy - Akshay4587) Ice bug has starting crawling on my skin too and I am resisting it as hard as I can!

That is Chiragh's ICE BUG sticker on his Hyundai Getz!

UPDATE: Will be getting body kit for my Shark tomorrow!

Head says Modulo since it will not lower the ground clearance of a car that is already low!

Heart is screaming for Mugen RR coz it looks sexy and will make the car look even more menacing!

Still shuffling between the choice of Modulo or Mugen RR.

Thats great! I guess you will also need to upgrade your wheels and tires to do justice to the body kit.
Are you importing it or getting it locally?

You know, my idea of get my wheels done in matte black have been shot to shreds by the mrs.

Ditto for me :(

Lucky to be young and free (with a Civic).

What about just painting the calipers?

So finally, I let my heart rule over my brain and got the Mugen RR body kit for my car.

Let me find a job first and I will start from the scratch modifying my second car to make it a real show stopper.
