The prices are pretty high

Are these the prices at which we will get or is there any extra import we have to pay.

Well as I said previously, what AMG is to Merc, Mugen is to Honda. Mugen is the official aftermarket parts provider which are approved by Honda. So you dont void the warranty in any case. Also, I guess for the NHC or the City ZX, the prices might have gone down as the model is discontinued and so are the parts from Mugen as it wasnt a best seller. Anyways, well the price is the final, including vat and import.

Add octroi to some cities. Taxes are primarily the reason why these parts are so exorbitantly priced! For most, the grey market is still the best option.

But since the USDM scene has kicked in hard about Mugen, so now they are like alright, we might have a bigger market. So well anyways, back to the point. For NHC, the Civic EK is the closest you can get for donor parts. But hey, they are expensive. Getting them in India, well thats tough, you will have to source them.


Hope that helps.
Thanks dude, I will try to find a source.

Default Mugen merchandise at Honda dealerships

The other day when I was at Linkway Honda Mumbai to collect my car which was there for the accident repairs, I happened to see Mugen merchandise in their display showcase there. They had every thing from keychains to coffee mugs, t shirts amongst other things. One thing I liked particularly was an Asimo Robot keychain. Didnt ask the pricing since I had my car to deal with but the stuff sure looked nice. Also standing there was a new Black Accord with the Mugen body kit and 18" wheels. Looked quite hot.

Seems a good move by Honda ( or maybe Linkway)

I think only Linkway Honda has it, I remember talking to Courtesy Honda in delhi about Mugen and half of them did not have a clue what Mugen is.

I think now i should go and show them my Civic
