I don't know whether this is the right place to post my query since my car isn't exactly new. I did see some remarks on 'undercoat for cars' though the views expressed weren't conclusive either way.
My car is over 18 months old - going past its second monsoon. The Honda service chaps here have been trying to hard-sell the undercoat proposition and I have been dithering, not too sure whether these new generation cars really need the treatment. But the rains have been particularly severe this year and with the car often doubling up as a boat to sail through riverine roads, I have been seriously considering the idea.
Any advice on the subj' would be welcome.
How about adding the LED lights to your car. Was rectly in malaysia and surprised to find out they are quite costly a 85 cms long chines LED lighting strip cost around Rs1000. Are they worth putting it in the car.
Also looking to acessories the speedometer console by installing a aftermakt one. I have a OHC Vtec does anyone know which model is good and would fit in the Vtec. Pls advise
Anybody out there who has had parking sensors installed in a Civic? I asked the showroom guys and they said 5700 bucks per sensor . Can someone post some place in NCR where this can get done at a reasonable rate.
I got parking sensors on my corolla recently(Bangalore). Cost me 4500. Only sensors(4 in number), no camera showing the view.
Accessories I have found useful are air pump that can be connected to a cigarette lighter socket (I got it from US) and a tubeless tyre repair kit.
yes i have seen these things, these are also advertised in autocar towards the end of the magazine and i suppose they cost approx 1.5 k upwards, looks neat and easy to use in the picture
I bought a compressor pump that connects to the lighter socket for Rs 950 at Hyderabad. It also has a light that lights up when connected to the lighter socket.
Never got to use it so far though. If you are interested, I shall post a pic.
I have fixed XENOS parking sensor in my car. It costs Rs. 3800 for 6 sensors (4 rear + 2 front) with Integrated display in Rearview mirror. Very useful.
Is it a fact that Xenos does not require holes to be drilled in the bumper? Do they provide a mirror that clips on to the stock rear view mirror and displays the distance? Is the display in feet or metres?
Where do you get those visors/shades that fit over the four doors? These are 2" wide sunshades with which you can keep the windows down by an inch or so, but the shades wont let the rain water get in. I thought I saw some fiited on an Innova???
Can someone enlighten me as to where can i get a good steering wheel cover?
And also how much will it cost? Also, how much do door visors cost? Am planning to get the visors once the monsoons start this year.
As for the steering wheel cover, my dad recently got a steering wheel cover. It is pathetic, in fact the installation is so bad that the cover is only half on and the actual steering can be seen. It is fixed by wiring all around it. Eeeyuck. (Will put up a pic tomorrow.)
So please advise me as to where i can get a steering wheel cover at a reasonable price and great installation in South Mumbai. I am looking for an all black one (leather is welcome if it's not too expensive) and the installation should be such that you cant make out if it is a cover or factory fitted.
