Could you manage to get the logo's as well?
As mentioned by Jesal,
"a little update on the accessories already installed on the car" or am i missing something here?

the car already came with all this installed. the owner did not tell me that he had spent on all this. i just happen to find all honda bills in the car itself. also i met the owner this week in the VW showroom. i guess he sold the civic to get a polo. not sure why

Congrats on the car, Jesal! And you got the exclusive color too, and I like it too! I would have got the same color if it was available in the facelift.. I was wondering how purple civic with the mugen body kit would look like!

as i said i did go to book the car in the same color somewhere i knew it was not worth 16 laks but i still wanted it. as luck would have it though i had to have this car. i had a deadline till new years if i did not get a purple civic i would settle for a new city. i was lucky i guess. thanks anyways. i might be installing the mugen kit as well. but the rims im getting is 16 so i am confused. as roads here just dont permit 17s at all. oh well. thanks anyways mate. cheers. i still am looking for the red honda logo for the back and mugen front grill btw

I am no expert on this topic, but you may want to give 3M paint protection and enhancement treatments a shot. I got it done for my car during the first service and I was impressed with the outcome. It costed me about 5.5 K INR, but that's for the whole year: there's two more treatments scheduled in this year and that's included in this price.

The car looks cool mate. Please post some pics of the ducktail spoiler. I am eager to see it. Also if you could share the details of the cost, that should be helpful.

Your car seems to be standing taller than regular Civics. What size alloy wheels & tyres have you opted for?

that is because the other side is on jacks. this was just when installing the rims.

upgraded to 205.55.16. so wanted to go 17 but not doing that with this car surely.

Good choice with the upsize! I recognise the place as Saifees. 16 inchers are a good compromise between the factory 15s and extreme 17s.

the grille is a work in progress, as most of the work on the car will be done at home including the paint and mods, trial and error is the way to go. i bought the color and painted the grille and spoiler but did not match so bought new color will paint again with mesh. till then the temp few pics :
