But StarVegabond the Roots Vibrosonic is not a very loud horn and the Bosch horns, most of them are not very loud.Roots Megasonic is the loud horn which is quite deafening.It is the one you usually see in politician's (?state) cars.If you think about the legality you cannot even upgrade the headlight.Do you want to delete all the headlight upgrade threads?.

It is almost impossible to drive safely in NH and MC road in my state without proper horns.Horns when used properly will prevent some accidents especially due to careless pedestrians (eg;crossing behind a bus).In such circumstances we need a good horn.Some sets of horns provided with ANHC are good.The one I found in the test drive car was useless.I have the orginal horn and the additional horn which can be switched off.

Few months back I had to honk the horn (illegally) in our medical college campus when an ambulance driver almost hit me when he was taking the car for washing!

About the horn,please get a good Roots Vibrosonic or Bosch for the car,orginal horn dosent have enough sound since it has to meet govt norms.
i think my run-in period is alreayd over but i still observe the RPM below 25k. i have already driven the car about 1800kms.

about he foot rest, it may not be a problem for all and you probably keeping your foot on right position.

Horns, i chanegd the stock horns after 4 days of driving stock horns. i got roots vibrasonis with a relay. but the problem still exist.

Hey Monty

Congrats on your buy !

I really loved your thought process. Its great thinking though. I did make a mistake by opting an SMT. Now i am wondering why shouldn't have i not done this.

By the way, your alloys look really nice, especially the outer painted ring.Your ANHC looks really Gorgeous. Do post us pictures once you are done with the carputer.

Also would you mind sharing the price for the alloys please.

Keep posting !

Hi Monty

Congrats on yr purchase. The car looks cool with the black alloys. Did you check with the dealer if the warranty gets affected due to upgradation of the tyres. I am also finalising on buying one and the dealer claims that it will affect the warranty.

PS - what was the discount/accesories that were offered?

thanks for the wishes.

well it may void the warranty for the suspensions. they will say that our warranty will be voided for anything we go for which is not done by the dealer.

"unka bas chale to kahenge ki, sir please dont get aftermarket mats, it will void your warranty"

well, i dint get any discounts or any accessories. here in punjab theres no discount on any honda cars except on jazz.

and BTW i am sharing some more pics which were clicked on my cousin's wedding.

and yes i got the red tape on the yellow line on the alloys. which looks better, red or yellow?

I feel, yellow lip was looking much better.
No plan for sunfilm? It will add a lot of character. alloys would look meaner!!!

Congrats Monty991 for buying ANHC.

Without yellow line it may look 'No-tyred' (both tyre and the wheel being balck).

And i will have the door setp garnish soon as well. It was not avalible with the local accessories shop now and will be with him by this weekend.
Its for Rs.1800 only and has all four illuminated. The one dealer has is only front illuminated doorsetp garnish.

1,800 only, I think Honda sells it for 9,500. Way cheaper.

Since these need some kind of power source for the illumination, the local accessories shop will have to cut or insert the wiring into the existing electrical wiring in the door. Honda dealers usually crib about the electrical warranty becoming void in such a case. Do you have a specific plan to handle the installation?

You are right. The quotation provided to me here in Hyderabad was for Rs 9550.00 at one Honda dealer and Rs 9750.00 at another.

well i will definatly take care of the same, i will ask him to use connectors ( pic attahced). with these we dont have to cut the wires. these are used when we install aftermarket central locking and security systems.

its not yet avalible with the shop keeper. but promised me by this weekend.
