Default Chrome windshield beading for the Honda City

Hi Everyone. I need your help regarding chrome windshield for my Honda City ivtec.

Honda City Exclusive coming up with chrome windshield. Honda Accord and CRV also provide the same.

I wanted to fix it in my City V iVTEC. Checked up with Honda authorised and they said the price would be around 17-18k.

So, need your help and opinion where to fix it and any idea about the cost. If any dealer is fixing it, also, let me know please.

Thanks in advance.
Subrat

Same here, I didn't quite understand when you meant Chrome Windshield!

Are you referring to chrome mouldings?

@ Subrat - I've seen and inquired about the Honda City Exclusive but I don't recall seeing any chrome windshield. The exclusive come with chrome mouldings on the trunk & door sash. Were you referring to the same thing?

@ Arup - I do not know how to convey. I think it is door sash i.e., chrome moulding.

Bro, thanks for the explanation but that will look tacky don't you think?
The side profile, window beading itself looks incomplete in City as the B pillar is black and does not leave space for beading to interlink when doors are closed. Thus I will advice you to think twice, maybe ask your Photoshop friend to help out or ask the dealer to show you how it looks before he fixes it.

I cant bend my head around the idea of chrome beading. It's just me.

Enjoy!

Subrat is referring to the chrome window beading. Earlier the City had a black garnish around the door/wondow. The new executive has a chrome lining.

It is looking nice in city exclusive. The only difference between City V MT and city exclusive is this chrome beading and leather seat cover.
