Has anyone gone for a Horn change till now? The OEM horn is downright pathetic and even a cycle won't move.
Need suggestions which horn will suit best without tampering with warranty. I live in NCR so a loud horn is an important necessity.

So finally after about 4 and a half months of wait got my silver VX CVT ivtec delivered. Had to escalate to Honda with a 7 day ultimatum, got the order canceled with the current dealer, got a new booking done and the car got delivered in 2 weeks flat. Luckily post that the process was just seamless and had a hassle free experience till the delivery. Stock tyres were Michelins (Lucky me) and got them upsized to Primacy 3ST 195 60R15. Got 3D nomad mats from 3M Car care in Thane for about and now wondering whether underbody anti rust and paint sealant is a worthwhile investment. Anti rust probably yes but not too sure about the paint sealant treatment. Inputs welcome :).

The drive was completely in D mode without any use of paddle shifts. I am planning to start using the S mode and paddle shifts only after the first service is completed today and when required.
One advice, if you feel there is a rubber band coming in and the speedo displays blue consistently, just take of the foot from the accelerator for a second and it's gone. This happens mostly when there you have to do a steep climb from low speeds.

The Anti-Rust treatment from 3M, is basically for countries with very low temperatures. In such places, they put salt on the roads to de-ice it, thereby leading to salty water on the roads. The salty water splashes up against the underbody, thereby hastening the rusting process. To prevent this, they use underbody coating. I don't think it's gonna be snowing in Thane, any time soon. So, the primary function of Anti Rust Treatment is not gonna be there for anyone in the warmer parts of India.
However, an additional feature of the Anti Rust Treatment is that it deadens the sound from the noise, since the compound is a form of rubber. This leads to a quieter drive. Plus, it prevents chipping damage to the underbody (again, not such a big advantage).
The Paint Sealant from 3M lasts for about 6 months only. The better option would be to go with the stock coating, and do a treatment at 3M, a few months down the line. In fact, if you are into regular cleaning and waxing of your car, even that won't be required. Would suggest the Paint Protection Film though, especially in damage prone areas like the bumpers and ORVMs.
Happy Motoring! :)

Congrats sir for the acquisition of the second most awaited car in the Indian automotive industry, first being the Ford EcoSport.
Coming to the 3M questions, I will say go ahead with the underbody anti-rust treatment (5 year warranty) but the paint sealant may help. 3M says it lasts for around an year but the reality is it lasts no more than 5-6 months in our environmental condition.
So the pick is yours, though I did get the Paint sealant treatment - Essential (Medium category) since mine is a hatchback (Swift ZDi) that costed me Rs 3696/-. The cost may be around 4K as your car is a longer hence more effort and resource usage.

Congratulations on your new beauty! Did you get the regular nomad matting or 3D Nomad Mats? Could you share photos and cost if possible? I booked my VX CVT in April and have been promised delivery in August or early September.
I am a newbie and this is my first posting!

Congratulations once again Harpreet.
Thanks for the teaser picture. Have a long mile munching ownership.
So has the waiting period come down or is it only for the SV variant?

This month it will cross the 50,000 Units Sold mark for sure. I wonder if this is the fastest ever 50K mark for a car in the C2 Sedan Segment.

Has anybody else faced issue with the stock music system loosing time and saved FM stations. My 45 days old SV MT i-VTEC City's stock music player is getting reset overnight or when it is off for some longer duration. Is this normal behavior or should i get it checked ? I believe this problem started only few days back and i remember it was working fine at least till the last week.
Also I am hearing some squeaking noises from the dashboard while driving on rough & bumpy roads (e.g the kind of stretch we have on ORR in Bangalore between Bellandur Flyover and Agara Flyover). I think the noise is coming from the silver colored panel covering the central console near the AC vents.
