Hey your car looks stunning in black with that front grille, alloys and chrome border. But the price tag does not justify the car. I'd have surely gone for the Civic if i were to spend that kinda money!

There was another ANHC thread where someone posted the entire accessory price list and the alloys was shown to cost Rs80k odd

are there multiple alloy options at different price levels ( i dont think that might be the case ) or did you manage to get a hefty discount ( even more unlikely for a HONDA )

This one has an EPS (Electronic / Electric Power steering). So no pump!

Oh thanx Trrk! Did not know that and frankly did not realize PS can be electric.

So all cars in this segment are equipped with E-PS? I believe the higher-end ones have a hydraulic one then. True? And which type is superior - electronic or hydraulic? In both my Audi and Volvo the PS is hydraulic.

Wow! I haven't read the entire thread but the first 2 pics are breathtaking. I was speechless for a moment! No kidding. I think the car and the background are doing wonders for the snap! What a ride. Needs a spoiler. anyone?! Is this the first black one on T-bhp?

Congratz Karizma Fan. Your ANHC looks fabulous in black. The alloys are great, but the steering cover does not look good.

Congrats

Each one has a different tast and as long as it satifies your own it is fine. (This is obviously how you would go about it.) and it makes you happy.

I do feel the Mag wheels and the Reverse sensors were the only worthwhile investments (addtions) that you made,and possibly the front grill. Though the default one looks better though it is the common one.

Investing in wider tyres would be better considering the power from the Car.

The civic Auto at 1L more was possibly a better bet. But then the new model feel and shorter size is also a winner. so congrats again on getting the car the way you wanted it.

To make matters confusing, now there are electro hydraulic ones too!

I checked the Honda site before giving out that answer inspite of owning an EPS NHC City CVT myself. Companies do change there preferences for their different models.

The Civic is mentioned as having power assisted steering, I guess it is a hydraulic one. The Accord has a hydraulic one. The CRV 2L has electric whereas the 2.4L has hydraulic.

The hydraulic assisted ones were the ones which gave good feel, but a well tuned EPS is capable of that, I have read.

Sorry, not a very technical person!

I have been reading all your comments. Almost everyone agrees that the car looks stunning. I feel good that I have made a good choice.

Thank You All!
