3. The canards might have been expensive coming from Autopsyche and so you can remove those after the novelty wears off.

So my folks! I finally got rid of the Canards today. Reasons stated above by all of you convinced me that the car is way too much ricer and needs to breathe easy. Tomorrow a proper full car detailing session shall be done. On Friday or Saturday I will also get a pair of DRLs removed. After that the only thing left is the Tyre upgrade and license plate.

Here are the pics:

Foremost, Let me thank you all for giving me the right sense of doing up a car in a sober manner. To be brutally honest, because of all of you today this car has been able to come back to a normal looking car. Please be assured that all your suggestions hold dear to me and they all mean a lot to a person like me who did not understand the concept of "beauty is in simplicity.".

The only thing I can say here is that I did not spoil my car with any bad intention. It was a hit and trial method. I really thank you all and look forward for more suggestions in future too.

Finally, Please don't shy away from criticizing my efforts if they are not up to the mark. This healthy criticism shall make me a better owner/ driver.

Thanks.

Car looks a lot cleaner ad! Why not think of some eagle eyes for the front and rear? Certainly gives the car a slicker look! Check out eagle eye website (ideally malaysia). I got a set for my CRV from them. Maybe a mugen style front grill too?!

Bhai, there is just 1 issue after having the body kit for 3rd Gen Honda City I vtec, i.e it already has the issue of low ground clearance so if I place a kit the ground clearance will reduce further which shall lead to scrapping on speed breakers. Moreover, we have roads with pot-holes and in such terrible traffic conditions how can I save the body kit when the car is itself on the mercy of fellow motorists on road!

Thanks

I agree with you. The body kit would make the car a lot more difficult to deal with on pot holed road. However the mugen grill in those pics look really good. You could consider going for that.

Here are some light samples from Eagle Eyes:

Due to the rainy weather, the car is bound to get dirty with mud and dirt from our feet when we sit. Hence, to cure this un-avoidable menace, got my car's interiors vacuumed and the wheels cleaned too.

I don't know why but the wrap on the bonnet seems to be losing its shine. Or was it Matt? Remove it and keep it just on the roof.

I agree with sid's suggestion of keeping her looking clean.

Boot also you can get repainted.
