Hey,

U need to shell out atleast 10-11K per alloy if you are to buy them from the showroom.

I'm not sure if you can get brand new ones in the open market.

If you're lucky, you could get an awesome deal from some vtec owner who is unaware of it's value.

U sure? They were around 13K back in 2001-2002. Presently they're selling for around 10-11K.

sorry for chatter on a marketplace thread, but am sure this will help the relevant part's seller and buyer equally.

Yes, as someone rightly mentioned, Honda strips you when it comes to genuine accessories.....Can someone guess how much they charge for the original fog lights for the old Honda City !?!

Yep I did upgrade my front tyres to 185/70 13 Goodyear 770+.
Man those tyres suck. Braking is very poor
No effect on the mileage ( chk out for speedo, odo error (2.4%) while calculating mileage)
Sooner i'll be shifting to Michelin tyres(energy ones).
If i get vtec rims .. i'll go for it n then change the tyres along with the rims
