very nice car dmc-12 first on team-bhp
pics dont so justice to the car, please some more pics

heartiest congratulations on the car dmc-12, very nice choice of color,
please put up a detailed report commenting on the cars ride and handling as well as the handling,
do you use the paddle shifts often, i have been told that it operates on 'd' also unlike civic which is only in 's'.
How do you find the acceleration in the car and have you experienced 's' mode?

Doesn't the All new honda city have a AUX-IN connector as well?

The reason I ask this is because owners of older ipods could then connect using the AUX-IN.

This is present in the Civic 1.8V model, and is very convenient. You can connect virtually audio device here.

Slightly offtopic, but you can change a lot of the older iPods into simple mass storage device based music players by using custom firmware like Rockbox. Be warned that the procedure isn't for the faint of heart and it does completely change how the device works.

But the upshot of it is that the thing is much more compatible with USB enabled ICE and it doesn't require the frankly atrocious piece of **** that Apple calls iTunes.

seeing the way Honda is running amok with offers and discounts i am sure they will soon introduce a proper CD/DVD player, even as a "limited period" offer!

the USB thing is a very bad idea. I'd like to meet the chap who thought of that. Most of the car owners in the targeted segment would already have a good collection of CDs (for their ICE). what would they do with all that now?

hey DMC-12
Congrats on the new ride. Saw the same coloured ANHC today on madhya marg today. Can't say if it was yours but one thing that is for sure is that its a wicked colour. Suits the front of the car real well.
Enjoy her.

Congrats to you and your dad DMC-12. Driving an automatic geared car must have been an experience for you. Do chip in with more updates and pics.

Cheers,

Congrads DMC. Strangely there is more discussion on the Cars Audio system than the car itself.

Is this car that boring on this forum? Is is more boring than the NHC?
