I'm particularly interested in these kind of head lamps



and these rims




Both these images are from this same thread.


Now coming to the headlamps, am I correct to assume that the headlamps in the image above are angel eye projector headlamps with HID?

What I have learnt so far is HID lamps do not have a filament and are filled with xenon gas and use a ballast and starter.

Projector lamps instead of a conventional reflector have a reflector as well as a lens to direct the light and if there is a shade with a solenoid to provide the low beam cutoff then they are called bi-xenon.

Looking at the image I can see 3 light sources, marked 1,2 and 3

Am I right in assuming that 1 generates the low beam, 2 the high beam and 3 are just decorative lights?

Also when the headlight are not turned on (fully) do the round edges of the light sources 1 and 2 ( marked by arrows) illuminate along with string of lights (3) as shown in the image and hence the name "angel eyes"?

And finally do these come as a complete assembly? ie remove the stock headlamp assemblies and replace them with these or is the assembly kept as it is and these hid's projector lenses etc retrofitted into them?

Now coming to the rims what is the largest I can go without causing any damage to the vehicle and do I need to go for low profile tyres when I increase the rim diameter?

And what brand /size are the ones in the image?


If I do make these mods, will the warranty be void ( my guess is yes?)

And finally is there anyone from Mumbai who can suggest a one stop shop where I can get these mods done along with approx cost it would involve.

Also what does one do with the stock rims, tyres and lights once one has these mods added? can these be sold? ( will save me some money )


I live at Prabhadevi, Mumbai and am planning to buy the car from Arya Honda and though I would like to have them do the mods, they are so clueless that I think it would be insane on my part to ask them for the mods.

They offer "xenon light kit" for Rs24,000 and the brand is "rd company" and didn't have any other info or even a sample to see

Other than that they had no idea what I was talking about. Go figure!

So guys anybody in Mumbai who can do these mods for me please let me know

Thanks

no2 is the low beam. it is the projector. no 1 is the high beam. it is a normal reflector. no3 are just decorative lights.

when the headlights are not turned on fully then what you assumed is correct. only the rings around both the lights and the leds at the side turn on.

they come as a complete assembly.

as for the rims you can get 17 inchers but the ride will become more stiff. i think 16" would be a good compromise between looks and ride. for more details make a thread in the tyre and wheel section.


your warranty should not be void since you are only changing rims and the headlights and they are not huge changes.

for the stock rims and tyres you will get some cash back if you exchange them.

the headlamps should cost about 10-12k thousand give or take 2k. the wheels + tyres should cost about 40k - the money you get from exchancing your stock rims and tyres.

dont get any accessories from the showroom.

ps i too live in prabhadevi. lol

Stock Civic itself looks so stunning, with those body kits, lights, and low profile tyre. It looks like the Race car.

Great job.

shouldn't the Red logo in the front match with a similar one at the rear, just asking.
Also pics with the lights (front and rear) on would be nice.
