Hi Jayanth so far (nearly 13,000 km) I have not felt the head lights "under powered".I have talked to few "friends" in Honda about the headlight upgrade.

Everyone is suggesting to go for the Xenon if necessary.Xenon upgrade is said to be the only reasonably priced Honda accessory.It is due to their tieup with Philips.Some are saying that the higher powered bulbs might damage the Headlamp reflectors in long run!It may be wrong.ANHC owners please help.

I will post the pics in a day or two, as my friend had taken my camera for a trip and will be returning it back by tomorrow. Kindly bear with me till then.

Meanwhile I had been to Whitefield Honda with a colleague of mine who wanted to check-out the New ANHC VMT. While looking around I enquired on the tweeters.

They are two options that they are offering:
One that comes with VMT model, which can be easily fixed in the slot inside of the OVRMs. This costs Rs. 4000/-
Then there is the Alpine tweeters, which cannot be fixed in the slot inside of the OVRMS, but can be placed on either side of the dashboard, or can be fixed next to the 'A' pillars on the top. This costs Rs. 2500/-

Also when enquired on the cost of the alloys that come with the VMT model, it was stated that each alloy costed Rs. 9000/-

Default Bumper and Door Protector from Hiker

Managed to pick up my neighbor's camera for a while, lucky me.
Excuse me for the quality of the photographs.

I have uploaded the following images:
Front Bumper Protector
Rear Bumper Protector
Door Protectors
Front Door Protector
Rear Door Protector
Front Door Protector2 - Just to illustrate that when you open the door against a wall or a adjacent standing car, the first thing that comes in contact is the door protector. Of course you need to have it fixed at the right position.

When I took delivery of my ANHC S Variant in Nov'09, Each alloy wheel was costing little more than 12k.

Iam planning to go for alloys, and a 30% discount on Honda branded alloys would be a boon, though they are still on the higher price range...

The concerns are valid. High power halogens also produce a proportionally high amount of heat. The headlamp reflectors can go bad eventually.

Who are your friends at Honda? Just about everyone at Peninsular has changed. My favorite SA is gone. The new one seems better though - he actually called me back when he said he will.

jayanth, a very nice report. I am seeing it only now. Was fun and informative to read through your comments. I will be in the market for a sedan around 10Lakhs some time mid this year. Your inputs helped me a lot. Wishing you many more miles with your car. All the best.
Do keep updating the thread with your comments.
