Default Honda Civic V AT Alabaster Silver

I picked up my Honda Civic V AT (BS4) from Pushp Honda after a bit of a fight with Honda Corporate. The dealer Pushp Honda stood solidly with me. Also, an excellent delivery experience. See details on:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...st-dealer.html

The model was formally launched only yesterday. Quite pleased with it. Find a couple of gripes:

1. There is only one power socket. I need it for GPS, Mobile & Car Fridge - at least two should be there. Some far lower end cars have these as standard
2.Since the car has separate Hi & Lo beams HID should be there on Low Beam (as in Altis G series).

Now that's better ! A dedicated thread.

Does your car come with any 'new' feature(s) viz, parking sensors?

Yes. It is standard in V. S picks up indicator repeaters on mirrors. See the second pic. Illuminated sills and 5th alloy are pending.

HID can be fixed outside, but only one power socket is really irritating.

Hi,

Congratulations.

You can try products such as:

eBay India: CAR SOCKET SPLITTER adjustable 12V LED light UNIVERSAL (item 160439318016 end time 04-Jun-2010 16:50:31 IST)

eBay India: 1 USB 3 Car Cigarette Lighter Socket Splitter Charger (item 280502085262 end time 03-Jun-2010 13:57:22 IST)

An alternative is a car invertor.

These are coming as standard? Or part of the deal?

Is there any display for the park assist? Or is it audio only?

Audio only.

Folks, please give me some time to come to terms. I drove it out of the showroom barely 21 hours ago.

I am being a bit restrained till I get the RC and plates. Am planning to get Utsav plates eventually.

@trrk: Thanks for the lead. Tropicoolindia.com lists 2 way and 4 way systems. so now we have 2-, 3- ans 4-way splitters. Remember still the limit is 12A (10A to be safe) total.

As for HID: Honda are known to be a bit finicky about warranty. Also, after-market is after-market!

Pleasure to be of help. Not good at technical aspects, though!

My friend uses the car alternator with a an extension strip to use multiple gadgets as you have mentioned. I have done the same. But may not look nice in a Civic and depends on the other passengers.

Congratulations Doc! Looks lovely in silver. And looks like you've got a good deal too. Sold off the Accent?

Congratulations, I envy the CIVIC. I own ANHC btw. Great choice of color, I think it's the best shade for CIVIC.
BTW, do you get any certificate stating it's BS4 compliant?
