DDPAI Mola N3, for the front view. It is just okayish and does the basic job. Daytime videos are clear and captures the oncoming vehicle numbers at slow to medium speed. Night pics are not that clear, have posted a pic in the first post. Probably you can try it as a rearview cam and opt for a better cam for the front.

Regarding the PUC, at least for Kerala it is needed annually, as obvious from the RTO's SMS that I got.

A quick update ::

Another 600 km round trip to Gujarat and the more I ride her the more I like her. She is now just a shy over 6000 kms in just over 5 months and raring to go.

My FE on the meter is still at 18 kmpl with full time AC and sedate drives between 70-85 kmph.

Regards
Diesel

Thank you for suggestion. Finally got rid of front wind shield film, really there is lot of difference in visibility. After removing the film it left lot of glue on wind shield which took nearly 1 hour to clean.I have decided not to do any unnecessary addition to car unless its for safety reasons.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Can some Delhi folks on this thread share their experience with the Honda service center?
I used to get it done from Axon but now they have shifted to a location not much feasible to go to. So I am left with Samara or Courtesy in Okhla Area.

Would appreciate some pros and cons if anyone has been to these two.

Thanks In Advance

You should add a relay and a fuse while swapping.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Hi fellow 5th Gen City owners !

Has anyone got their stock horns changed ? The stock one is pretty weak and I personally couldn't find any workaround for changing it without removing the bumper. I don't trust any car accessories shop for removing the whole bumper for replacing the horn. Is there any other option other than this ? Otherwise I'll have to wait for a couple more years till the stock horn goes bad or till I gather the courage to get the bumper opened.

They are working really well so far, I am using both high and low and I have also added a relay just for my peace of mind.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

I just got my vehicle back after second free service. I had been facing the usual problem of creaking sound near sunroof and they got it fixed after holding my vehicle for a day.

At the time of delivery I noticed a small notch of paint shaved off, ~6-8mm in size and probably 0.5mm deep. I immediately pointed it out to the guy and he mentioned a stone would have chipped it off. I was not sure whether to make an issue out of it since it was too small and came back. But now I feel I should have raised it then and there itself. I don't think I can do much now

I feel frustrated because we expect a standard of service from the dealership at the same time I felt it is not that major of an incident. I am genuinely torn about what I should have done.

My family and another friend don't think it is noticeable, but still I feel hurt. What do you guys think?

Moving on, I would like to know what can I do about this now? I think I'll get it touched up, not sure if it's deep enough to expose the metal. I am worried about rusting.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

^that small paint chip calls for a whole panel repaint which isn't worth it in my opinion. It's most likely a stone chip. While, it may not be the dealership's fault, I don't hold them in high regard either. The way they handle cars dropped off for service is appalling. I recently had the same on my car and the paint was intact fortunately and I got it fixed by paintless dent removal PRO's. If you have anyone coming from the USA, there's a product called Dr ColorChip or alternatively, look for Honda's lunar silver metallic touch up pen. Good luck!

I will suggest not to do touch up unless the metal is exposed. From the picture, I don't think the metal is exposed. Touch up will make the mark more visible. Best option is to leave it as is.

Thanks ! I figured out how to open the trim piece for changing the horn, will go for a DIY change most probably. Did you get a relay installed with it ?

Is adding a relay and fuse really necessary ? I searched multiple YouTube videos and they said that if the car has a dual horn setup as stock, no need to install a relay. I have 0 electrical knowledge so I just wanted to clarify. If it were to be a straight plug and play, I'd have no problems with DIY but if a relay is needed, I'd have to go to an accessories shop as I don't want to make any mistakes.
Could you please explain the wiring diagram ?

When I gave my car to the ASC for the sunroof creaking problem, they removed the glass, lubricated the rails and the problem luckily hasn't resurfaced in the past 10 months. Upon collection of the car, I noticed several dirty spots on the leather seats and roof liner near the sunroof and I brought it to their notice right then and there. The SA was apologetic and got it cleaned for me. Speaking of my ASC, there is no such thing as a PDI before giving the car back to the customer and this makes the service experience much to be desired. On top of that, they're very eager to call/text/mail you, sweet talking and asking for 5 stars feedback.

I had some scratches on all 4 sides and ORVMs of the car so got the panels touched up/buffed with my 20k service two weeks back. The very next day, our driver bhaiya scratched the rear left door while parking it in the garage and an aunty managed to scratch the rear left bumper coming from the wrong side in a narrow lane. I wanted to keep the car spick and span but it is just not possible in our extreme traffic conditions. While it does pain me deeply, I have stopped worrying about these things and just focus on keeping the car mechanically sound.

Getting the scratch touched up is totally up to you, just remember on doing a thorough inspection next time onwards when collecting the car from the ASC.
