2 Yrs extended Warrantee and RSA 16400

I have told them that I dont need RSA.
Isn't ex showroom price same all over India or it differs from state to state?

I will strongly suggest on getting RSA. Yes, Honda is reliable but you never know where and when you may need assistance. Also 2900 bucks for peace of mind is nothing.

Update on my car : I am getting 3d Mats, back curtain and illuminated scuff plates today. Will post pics after getting installed.

Ex-ShowRoom price varies from State to State. Which 3D Mats are you going for? I got the Scuff Plates installed and it looks great - need to post pictures.

Ex Showroom the cost that the dealer charges for procuring the car from the manufacturer and the tax that it pays to the state government on procurement. The state government charges excise duty on cars. It is also known as the supply price of a car. In some states and cities, ex-showroom price may also include octroi tax. This is the tax collected by the local authority for bringing articles from outside the region for consumption in that region. Ex showroom prices differ from state to state. For instance, ex-showroom prices are higher in Mumbai or Bangalore than in Delhi.

Harry how are the scuff plates attached to the door stills? I had these in my old car. They were glued. Because of constant water accumulation in gaps between the scuff plates and door stills it resulted in rusting of the door panels and the scuff plates.

Normally scuff plates glued to the door stills. Can you tell which was your previous vehicle? The problem which you described is a strange one.

Yes, It varies for each state and generally lowest in the state in which it is manufactured.

Thanks. I will have RSA.

As Harry10 mentioned, its always better to have an RSA and besides it doesn't cost much too.

It gives you a piece of mind for a very minuscule amount as compared to the cost of the car.

Both of them are part of paint protection/sealant solutions. CQuartz is a much more premium product, protecting your paint for a much longer time compared to 3M. I don't think you'll be losing out anything (apart rom extra cash ) if you go for CQuartz treatment over 3M.

I would recommend to speak to Mohsin from UD and he'll explain the same in detail and I'll not be able to do justice here.

I think someone posted earlier in this thread that Honda is deliberately omitting the inner cover for the boot due to wiring/heating issues or something. Yes it looks ungainly and ugly, but if it's not advisable by the company then it shouldn't be done, IMO.

I'll see if I can dig up more info on this.

I missed 27+ by a whisker. Will add to my list . Also let know if the inner cover is a required omission and not for cost cuts. That was one of the things i was planning to get done. It really feels awkward without the cover

Glad to see that you got the full refund. Did they refund the entire amount on their own or it needed a little bit of nudge?

Aditto - Thanks. I wasnt aware that both are Earth Dreams. I will correct this in my list.

DRLs are so bright that it could be NRLs (Night). Is it brighter than low beam? It looks so to me.

The drops of rain on your car looked like dew drops on grass. Lovely. I am now very interested to get the same. How much of paint shine that you lose on applying this? Does it give protection from flying debris too?
