Yes. This will be a refurbished rack. Comes with a 6 month warranty. Kashmere gate is a haven for used / refurbished car parts

If you're looking for good quality spares, I can share the contact of Arun @ Ghai spares. His brother Prince ships products to other cities too. If it'll save you guys some money, then why not? 🙂

Update:

The spark plugs were changed and some basic lubrication was done to the clutch. Now the ride feels much smooth and no stalling issues from then on. HASS also advised to go for a complete replacement if the clutch starts feeling harder again, as the civic is nearing 95k now.

A quote of Rs.38000 was given for the clutch replacement. Is it necessary to go with HASS for the replacement or is there a better alternative option.

Total damage on plug replacement and clutch lookup was Rs.6000.

Thanks

And the quality of glass is exactly the same as OEM. Same visibility, concave etc. Only that the plastic tabs on the back did not click in to the housing as well as i would have liked, but nothing that 2 drops of elfi could not solve.

Outside you can get Excedy clutch plate can be had for 6 to 7k max. You just need to hunt a good capable FNG who will do the same for you. Find one which has a lift as it makes the overhaul easier. I am assuming Honda are going to change the flywheel as well hence the quote is on the higher side. Quite frankly my HASS guy quoted 30k for clutch and flywheel change along with slave and master cylinder. I got both clutch and flywheel from outside for 14.5k.

Thanks for the suggestion and link Sumeet. In fact, that was the first link I was taken to when I started searching for civic clutch replacement.

Yes, I was told that the clutch, flywheel and the master cylinder needs to be replaced. Anyways I am going to drive it for some time and once I start feeling the hardness again, I shall go in for a replacement.

For now the DIA inlet flexi hose looks damaged and will get it replaced at RRP by this weekend.

It should be 30k for just clutch and flywheel.Sorry for the wrong info. The master slave cylinders cost around 6 to 7 k each I think.

@Aslam what is the purpose of the flexi hose? Is it a air intake?

Did the HASS disconnected the HIDs ? as I can notice the ballast not plugged in.

Thatís a catch Kunal.

Didnít want to use the HIDs with reflectors, so removed them and went for stock setup with X-tremeVision bulbs. HASS has got nothing to do with it thankfully.

Hi Aslam,

Any particular reason for not using HIDs with reflectors?

IMHO Philips X-treme Vision bulbs are definitely better then the stock bulbs, I too was using them in stock headlamps and later switched to LEDs when aftermarket projector headlamps were installed.

Though we get a better visibility using HIDs, learnt that HIDs on reflector housing scatters light that could disturb the opposite driver.

I will go for LEDs when I plan to go for an aftermarket projector setup. Again, I am skeptical to switch to aftermarket setups hearing a few horror stories after the headlamp upgrades.

Mind sharing details over your current headlamp setup.

Thanks

This hold true for LEDs also, I was using H7 Led bulbs in Low beam (projectors) and high beams (reflectors), I refrained from using high beams in city as the glare was eye piercing bright for oncoming traffic. That said the low beam projector set up provided sufficient illumination with LEDs (please refer to the pics attached.).

Also the aftermarket headlamps were EagleEyes. My priced possession was handed over to another civic enthusiast in September 2017.

Kunal

@iTNerd; I quite like your selection. What were the damages. I am sure it save a fair bit on the Mobil1 0W40. Please let us know, and sources!
