Yes, This is useful on the highway on a rainy(heavy) day or a foggy day. This rear fog lights has a better visibility for the one following you (even in heavy(really heavy) rain/fog). It usually has a clearer lens and brighter red than that of your brake light.

Its a beauty. Share some pics of the dash litup. Best when clicked at night.
Do share the experience in using dead pedal. In photos it appears slightly on an awkward position.

Wish you happy miles ahead!!

Took delivery of my City V iDTEC yesterday. Dealer obliged and changed the tires from Goodyear GT3 to Michelin XM1

Drove almost a good 700km today.

Pleasantly surprised with the ride quality as well as the handling. A very comfortable car. Overall indicated mileage 24.3kmpl, in mixed conditions with AC on 95% of the time. Tankful to tankful, it is 24.45kmpl!

No one here criticizing Honda for not passing the entire excise duty cut derived reduction benefit to the customer? The excise duty reduction was to boost sales, but I guess Honda decided to pass the least onto the unsuspecting customer because there is heavy demand anyway.

For ex: Petrol VX (MT, metallic) was 10,14,500 and 4% of this is Rs. 40580 but Honda has kept Rs. 23080 and only passed benefit of Rs. 17500 to the customer.

It's business but that's a shame. Is this how all/most automobile manufacturers have restricted the passing of benefit?

Excise duty is levied on the base price of car without taxes, which translates to about 8L for VX (I am not really sure about the exact number).
