thats what i was thinking there has to be lower temp range HID's.i bet these ones which you have stated have a yellowish light close to the colour of the stock light.
Yup you are right!! The Temp like 8000k fail to perform in Rain times only i cant imagine how worse they will be in the Fogs!!!!

4300K emits White light with a tinge of Yellow, they are very close to the stock halogen color only!!! 4300K really improves the visibility. If looking for a HID upgrade for visibility purpose and not show-off then you should try 3000k and 4300k only!!!

Navpreeth,

Hate to sound like the stuck record, but on a white Civic, you just got to have some white rims. You have proved that this should be a (written) rule.

Nice pattern choice as well.

Also, Nice comparison with the Ninja 12R's 17inchers.

Keep us updated with pics on future mods.

i need a clarification...i've no experience with aftermarket rims, as i've always stuck to OEM rims. after installing aftermarket rims, is the wheel alignment, tyre rotation etc is still done by the honda service from time to time or do i have to get it done from outside. Would 17" rims hamper the suspension of the car in anyway and does it void the warranty or anything? last question, are lenso rims durable and would handle the indian roads specifically delhi/NCR roads. sorry for asking all these questions, just want to be crystal clear before changing the rims.

well i can say that if my Rs.13000 for 5 santro alloys can handle Delhi,UP and Uttarakhand roads for the past 5 years,lenso surely can.this is not some cheap korean brand.its a made in japan alloy.with a dedicated R&D.also are OEM for quite a few brands.

the 17inch rims will not hamper your suspension.if you drive at 120kph through potholes then even on the stock rims the suspension will die.i've driven ove 10000 kms in my sister's swift with low profile tires.(50 profile.) through all kinds of roads and even off the roads sometimes. and nothing has happened.
