I gotta admit it. This car was never destined to look good. Why!!!!!! Why did Honda even make something like this.

Honda should have named it the Honda "Defect". It's great as a car but the prob is, it doesn't look like one.

This car belongs to a fellow member at honda-tech.com.

Yeah, i have the same kit as the black honda with me as well now, just imported that one from malaysia. the major difference being that this is an addon while the red one is a full replacement bumper. Im myself so frustrated at honda at badging this as a city, they should have let it remained a sedan'ed version of the jazz. oh well, cant blame them for their marketing techniques!

Add on kit eh ...Struck an idea in my head... I have a black honda accord 2002 version one generation older than the current one.... The side of the car seems like has side skirts so i was thinking of putting an add on rear skirt for the back bumper. But i dont wanna put an add on skirt in the front coz it will touch down too much.... How do u think this would look with just a nicely style rear skirts, no front skirts and the side already looks like it has skirts. U think it would look wierd or would it suit the car ?
Also autopsyche can u hook me up with a nice pair of skirts for me car? Add on ones i dont wanna change the entire bumper.

Thanks V12, addix, nikibusa

Sahil, id suggest u to get the a set of four skirtings coz just the rear one would look a little out of place, and even if u get just the front and the backs im sure the sides will give u a much higher look and spoil the fun. even i dont have any kits for the older accord as yet (but can be ordered), for new accord V6 we carry the mugen design with the lip type boot spoiler andand it looks so very hot!

aadix, the kits generally cost about 35k or so for the entire fairing, the spoiler or gt wing is optional (additional cost). skirting like the one on the black should be around 20-25k depends on the cost of import again. All will be inclusive of paint and installation.

Don't like the front .. resembles a DC too much .. and the rear .. well .. doesn't look tooo different from stock except for just a bigger bumper with vents.



I like these though......

Hey i was gonna ask this a long time ago....... one of my friends told me that the nhc was designed by DC!! Is it true?? i had an arguement saying that Honda would noways get a design from DC or any other customiser.... they would have their own designers... What say guys??

didn't like the AGM design, looks too overdone......the Rio that I seen looks much better than any of the NHC mods I've seen.
