I love that colour! It's the closest you get to my fav colour- the Interlagos Blue on BMWs abroad

First time i am noticing such a colour for the City, and its BEAUTIFUL!

Seems to be included in the website as well. Wonder if it came with the recent refresh?

muralisk, sahil, ramsagar, nullrock, phamilyman, anekho, carrazy --- thank you all for your wishes. I am glad that you guys like the colour.

@crazy_driver, yes this colour comes with the recent refreshed versions of City.

@mevtec, indeed I like the fact that HOnda keeps on improving it's cars. Even the recently upgaded ANHC interior looks way better compared to when it was launched.

@anonymous, PM me if you want to have a in person look.

Yeah, it's steep. However that price included another unit that houses the relocated USB port and AUX port. This comes beneth the dash and just ahead of the Drive Mode Selector lever. Look at pic no. 8 in page-2.
Also I did not want to mess with the original electronics much. However I am satisfied with the quality, fit and finish of the player.

BTW, why did you cancel your booking? Were there any technical reasons?

Vijay, it's an optional accessory from Honda for City. I vaguely remember the sales person saying that it's from Mitsubishi(?), however not very sure.

Never go with the mileage i.e displayed. best method is tank to tank full.

To negotiate a speed breaker, approach it diagonally i.e only one tire should be on the hump followed by others. This should avoid scrapping most of them.
Upgrade your tires to Michelin PP2's. should increase the GC by 5mm. and also improves comfortable ride & handling.

Happy motoring.
Ramsagar some nice tips there but how do you approach a speed breaker diagonally on our roads? Perhaps possible only on an empty road?

@Pratim: Congrats on buying a great car and on the choice of the fantastic colour too. It is an eye-catcher for sure. I suggest you go in for a 3M paint protection treatment or equivalent which will make maintenance easier.

i cancelled the car itself. first honda said 3 months waiting and then told me it was ready delivery. i was kind of pissed with the whole thing. they killed my exitement. i am going to hold my horses for now. how true is the fact that only 500 cars are going to be made in this color. one dealer said its limited others says its unlimited. though on the brouchre the blue is not even there at all.

Was it the latest brochure? I have also seen a light blue colour ANHC on the road.

the blue is not there at all on the brochure itself. they claim to be limited edition. but i also saw a light green brand new city. the paint job i guess was done from honda itself. high quality but sucky color itself. dont know what the truth is though.
