You just made the wrong statement man.haha.I don't know about the other sections but in the Audio segment you're just gonna be owned.lol.

So your budget is unlimited.so are you ready to buy

1.Amp worth 2.5 lakhs or maybe 5 lakhs or maybe even 10-15 lakhs.(i think the ice experts will fill you in with the names and even more expensive brands)
2.HU's worth lakhs.
3.If its a no budget thing then its gotta be Dynaudio.Esotar i think.hehehe.worth a couple of lakhs atleast.
4.sub-maybe a plutonium worth a lakh.lol.

And this is just a list made of my small knowledge.Let the ICE experts see this i'm sure they'll bring the total cost of your audio system to a crore.


Don't be offended though dude all i'm saying is that a lot of people came here thinking that they had no budget limits.But they were all, well OWNED.



Oh yes by the way since you're in hydrabad don't look any further than MAUTO there for the wheels.Official Rays wheels importer.the best engineered wheels in the whole world.and one of the most expensive too.Your car will be the "CAR" with the Rays.the name RAYS says it all.

indeed OWNED

budget is 25 lakhs.

and what are the upsizing dimensions for civic with 18" rims

this movie fast and furious.There's a scene where that guy hooks up a computer to his car and checks the engine or some thing in the car.is it possible to do the same with my car.forgot to add,camera,camera's to the car also is one of my priority.Best security system also,i don't my car to be a dream theft for the thieves.

help me !

civic gives a less mileage,even less power.

modifications should be in tolerable limit by the engine.no problem with mileage getting down,but modification should not crank up my engine or performance.

Install a CarPC and connect a OBDII Scanner, It will give real time Air fuel ratios, Oil Temps etc!! Have a look at my civic, You can get some ideas.

bhai ! carpc is a big hell.I can't do that.I will post a screenshot,then you can get what I was asking.

my I.C.E configuration:

HU: Alpine iDA-X305 x1 ( Alpine Electronics of Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. )

Amplifier: JBL A6000 GTi x2 ( JBL Car & Marine Audio 0 )

Components: JBL 660 GTi x2 ( JBL Car & Marine Audio )

Sub: JBL W15 GTi MKII x1( JBL Car & Marine Audio )


WHEELS AND TIRES:

upsize: 205/60 R 15 or 205/60 R 16 (Bridgestone Potenza-III) with 18" rims.

till now this was the design of the modification I've planned.I will start the installations from July 1st week.Correct my configurations please if they are too much and over hyped.I want to keep components in the back also,don't want to keep speakers.If that's a dumb idea correct me

The numbers in bold will be the rim size required for the tires that you have mentioned and I am not sure if you get 205/60 R 18. usually the sidewall of a tire @ 18" is usually in smaller Percentage i.e. 50, 45, 40, 35 etc..

What did you exactly mean when you said you will fix it on 18" Rims?

Ok. I personally have not used these but my suggestion for a Civic would be 225/ 45 R 17 to avoid possible rub in the wheel wells. You will have to look for advice from other memebers on the specific models your looking for. I have been a faithful customer of Kumho's (I do not reside in India), these provide the ride quality I prefer without damaging my pockets.

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works. Check with the dealer before changing the wheels. Heard that Honda are finicky here.

If I'd that kind of money, I'd straight away get the best imported parts from Japan. Official Mugen parts (expensive but within your budget) will probably not affect warranty.

If not original, try to get a replica Mugen or TypeR body kit and wheels from reputed brands like OZ, Enkei etc. with good set of tyres. That's enough for the looks.

And please don't go overboard and make your car look like a rice-rocket with bits which make the car 'look fast' but all the weight will make it slower than stock. Scoops, scissor doors, strobes are useless bling-bling stuff on a Civic. At best, you can get those projector headlamps with angel eyes. Excessively big wheels with low profile tyres will affect ride quality and suspension in the long run.

You can't make custom headers for a Civic, atleast in India, because they are integrated with the engine.

Check out the 'Modded Honda Civics Thread' for ideas.

Check out sites like 8thcivic.com and import tuner, to get better ideas.
