Crystal Black Pearl
Black's a tough colour to maintain, but I love the colour. ANHC looks killer in black!
Would need some nice alloys to complement it.

Normally speaking, cars (or any shiny products) with clean surfaces (without too many intricate details like grooves, bulges or cuts) look very elegant in black. Ex: Innova, Linea, Fusion, Old CRV, i10 etc. Complex details get lost in black.

Cars with such intricate details look better in a light colour as the surfaces reflect the light back and reveal the surface details. Ex: i20, ANHC, new CRV etc

Personally I feel polished metal looks the best.

I own a 1.5 SMT in Alabaster Silver Metallic

My choice of color was based on following

1. i did not wanted dark colors as it was difficult to maintain as well as scratches etc are easily seen
2. i did not want black as it is difficult to be seen in poor light conditions or nights, might lead to accidents
3. i did not go for white as white needs more frequent cleaning (i am a bit lazy guy)
4. Choice was between Bold Beige and Alabaster Silver, my wife as well as myself liked Silver better than Beige as silver looks more shining from a distance as well as hides small scratches etc very well.

I would say go between Silver and Polished Metallic. But to me Silver looks neat on ANHC.

Orrite. Thank you all! Finally got the ANHC E Polished Metal Metallic. This one looks mean, as well as leaves behind a trail of sultry classiness wherever it goes.

Thanks all once again. Off to the accessories guy now.

Thanks Vegabond.

I'll post my experience soon.

The EMT came to me at 8.68 all inclusive (I got a New Bombay registration done). Mumbai regn would cost an additional 40K.

I chose this over the SMT for the following 2 reasons:

* I love the contrast the black Door Handles & Mirrors give to the Polished Metal Metallic

* I didn't quite like the aesthetics of the company fitted Audio system. So I get to choose the one I want and set the acoustics the way I want.

I've been running around everywhere possible in Mumbai to find a good guy to do the Audio system up for me. Someone who had worked on my Esteem before (Six Eleven, Milan Subway) seems to be the right guy. If anyone knows some other shop in specific, please let me know.

My wishlist for accessories were quite a few:

* Tyre upgrade
* Alloys (non-Honda)
* Keyless Entry
* Rear sensors
* Audio System (Double Din & Component speakers)
* Anti-rust

Thanks to the price tag of the ANHC, I've realised that I can only afford the last 2 options for now

Nevertheless, I'm loving every bit of being part of the Honda Tribe & Team-BHP.
