Slightly OT: How much extra did you have to pay for jumping the registration series? I've seen KA 51 with P series. I'm asking this beacuse when I bought my car, the dealer said that the RTO charges 30K for a different series and 10K for specific no:
Let's say it was between the 10-30 K range.

but many thanks. I was a little doubtful about the colour initially because it doesn't look so good on the NHC but it works on this one.

Default City Lights - Honda City S (ANHC) - more pics (streetlight)

got back late from work and took the opportunity to get some pictures under the old orange streetlight from the 60's.

Also, got a call from dealer - the "morning-after" call. Told him everything was great except for the headlight power and he's told me that I can get them changed for a nominal charge when I get my first servicing done. That doesn't quite cut it because this isn't an accessory. Anyway, hopefully I can drive over and get some new ones fitted.

Stepped on the peddle earlier this evening and another great facet of this car - stability. It is rock steady. Can't wait to hit the highway.

Default FE update

The fuel tank is in its final quarter and so far I'm estimate FE in Bangalore city at ~12.5-13kmpl. So that's about one km knocked off my initial estimate.

The drive is getting better. AC not so good.

Hi,

not doing a comparo here or saying which is better, but I have a 2002 OHC Vtec and I am getting around 14.8 kmpl in bangalore.

Honda engines are a dream!! Hail Vtec!

Cheers

@Vikram: Nice to see the pics of your 3GNHC! it sure looks good. Will await on your FE figures. Honda is known for the wonderful FE, maybe post the first servicing you might end up getting better figures

@Vikster
How's the air-conditioner brother? i had read in the TG magazine that ANHC has got crappy air-conditioning! I know it might be difficult to judge about it in winter time, but still is it par with other cars in the segment?

It is not cool fellow De Niro fan. Was it in the same magazine that they said that if the passengers in the back seat need to feel the AC the people in the front have to withstand a mother blast? That's pretty accurate. The AC could definitely be reworked. It takes a while to get going as well and isn't very discrete. But fortunately the controls are quite sensitive and on long drives it'll do the job.

Overall, I would rate the AC weaker than most cars in its segment. I haven't really driven many in the segment - but if one compares it to the Fabia, for example, the AC is definitely a sore thumb.

IMHO thats a great figure and that too from an engine churning out 115hp

Congrats on the purchase. Looks chic

I dont think its a disaster. Its decent to say the least. Common Ramie bhai its not that bad as Baleno.
So you finally had your TD! And now the price is dropped – so time to match up to your avatar?

They tired to copy from the beemer and made a mess of it. It is a poor imitation. Wonder why Honda could not do something ingenious.

Many thanks. The price dropped? Well, it had to happen someday. Let's see if I can squeeze a freebie at the first servicing (and he died an optimist...).

Yesterday’s news report says so - passing on the CENVAT benifits!
