Giving you the prices I inquired in Delhi from a reliable supplier.

Head Lamps both Stanley - 3800 ; Depo - 2700
Front Grill (Taiwan) - 1500
Brake Pads (Nissin) - 850

What I couldn't get and still looking for are the Monograms and Door Beads.
Lots of aftermarket available but none similar to OE.
I have tried few shops in Kashmiri gate too.
Can anyone please let me know where can I get these in Delhi, any specific shop please refer.

Thanks!
Are the given headlight prices for a pair or per piece?

Thanks to infotech58 i went to Bhavani yesterday and got some work done!

1. Clutch & pressure plate changed
2. Clutch cable changed
3. Clutch bearing changed
4. injectors cleaned on a great automatic machine - pre 27ml per 30secs post 35ml per 30 secs (all this per injector) so its like i have an additional injector now
5. Tappet packing changed
6. Checked the timing belt..no change required.

Thanks again Sumeet!

I could have done this anywhere but the fact that he had got all this work done on his OHC Vtec and is happy really made it an easy choice

Same here!!

Well i dint see it in action, but from what i understand he has the completely automatic/computerised machine..the one which has those test tubes for each injector.

The machine also gives the pre and post cleaning fuel flow report.

Kaushik, can you post the report if you have it?

I'm interested in seeing what machine they use. Last I heard, the only ASNU injector cleaning around us was in Pune.

Default re: 1st Gen Honda City Owners - Problems Areas, Fuel Efficiency and more

Today morning after driving for around 5 Kms i noticed some smoke / steam coming from the left side of the bonnet. Checked and saw the Coolant pipe had got disconnected and there was hardly any coolant inside and the smoke / steam was coming from the tube which had got disconnected. I got a botte of Bisleri and put it in the Coolant bottle but before that a Truck Driver nearby told me to wait for sometime as the water was chilled and should not be poured and the car should not be started immediately. After 10 mins i poured the water in the coolant bottle and started the car. Noticed a mild RPM fluctuation and the Temp Needle was below 50% mark as always. However i noticed some sound similar to water boiling and kept the car at my friends place which was just 100 mts from where this happened.

Question is, if such a thing happens, what should be the normal procedure. Should i fill in the Coolant mixed with Water in the Coolant Bottle and should i also fill in Coolant mixed with water into the Radiator as i guess a lot might have got evaporated when the tube got disconnected. I have got a 500ml bottle of BPCL MAK Lubricants coolant. Please help on what i should do.

40 liters.

@Desmo: Top up the coolant. Drive around for a bit. See if car overheats. If it does, you've probably blown the head gasket which will require replacing. Also when checking, open up the radiator cap and check the color/texture of the coolant. If you can see any oil in there, then you've blown the head gasket.

If it's not overheating or mixing coolant and oil, nothing to worry.
