I'm planning to get it done @ 3M Car Care store in Hyderabad. Most likely will go for the underbody coating with 5 years warranty and the paint sealant treatment.

I am planning to procure a couple of accessories for my car(2010 Estilo). Can someone point to some reliable shops around Electronic City or Meenakshi mall, Bangalore?

1. Parking sensor with distance display
2. Seat covers
3. Fog lamps

Since it's a 7 year old car( only 30k kms on odo), Don't wanna spend too much. Just basic functional ones should do.

For parking sensors you can order on Aliexpress and get them installed by a local electrician, it is a simple job and the sensors are very cheap as well. I ordered a set and they have been working perfectly. Here is the link to the product I ordered :

Car Auto Parktronic LED Parking Sensor With 4 Sensors Reverse Backup Car Parking Radar Monitor Detector System Backlight Display
http://s.aliexpress.com/MfYjmu67?fromSns=Copy to Clipboard

Alternatively,

Viecar Car LED Parking Sensor Kit 4 Sensors 22mm Backlight Display Reverse Backup Radar Monitor System 12V 8 Colors
http://s.aliexpress.com/reIZbEB7?fromSns=Copy to Clipboard

These ones are available in almost all colours.

Hope this helps.

Hey mitsuvolk,

Thanks for link. But how difficult is to get this installed, as 4 sensors are to be installed on the bumper, will they drill the bumper. Planning for my old Corolla.

It is very simple. Yes the bumper will be drilled but the drill bit corresponding to the size of the sensors is provided by the Aliexpress seller along with the sensors so you need not worry about it. Nothing will look out of place after the installation of sensors. You can take the sensors to any accessories shop and they will happily install them for you at a nominal cost.

Another suggestion : you can ask the installer to install the digital distance display on top of the IRVM, it looks neat and is very helpful while reversing as both the IRVM and the sensor display fall in your line of vision.

For these type of sensor quoted in the above link, the bumper needs to be drilled at 4 places and these sensors will be inserted. If the body color does not match, this will be very visible. When I did it for my corolla, i just went in for a rear camera with a 4"TFT display at the front. This way, the small little camera can be installed/hidden and you get a clean video output, but no sound though. It was perfect for me.

Search key at Aliexpress - Rear Camera with monitor

Seatbelt cutter and glass break device To save life in car crash

Invented by a 20 year old engineer. Seems useful. Has anyone here tried such a device?

Default The "USED" Accessories Price Check Thread

Hi guys,

Creating this thread as I have been struggling with a lot of queries regarding the accessories which my car has but there is no one point discussion / thread which answers those queries.

I think this thread will be useful
> To help commoners assess the commercial feasibility of buying / selling / upgrading car accessories
> To provide a discussion forum within a section of automotive space which is very poorly indexed and structured
> To understand the if we can enjoy used high grade accessories like we enjoy

What this thread will not be useful for
> Any model specific / technical queries
> Any Installation / DIY queries,

These are best handled through forum SMEs on respective threads like the ones below

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/car-e...vr-thread.html (The Dashcam / Car Video Recorder (DVR) Thread)

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/car-e...-ecosport.html (ICEing up my Ford EcoSport).

Let me kick off. I have a MapmyIndia system in my Honda City (7 inch touch screen model). The system works as it is supposed to, however doesnt have android auto. I wish to upgrade to a system which provides Android auto connectivity.

Also, I have the City (facelift 2015 onwards) Original system which I purchased from a fellow auto enthusiast, which is not compatible with my city due to the socket mismatch. (The new one has modified socket).

I am exploring upgrading to a Pioneer system (https://pioneer-india.in/buy/car-ent...s/avh-z5290bt/).

The question is, how much can I expect for my MapmyIndia 7 inch touch screen system and Original City system? So that I can plan my upgrade accordingly.
