Best decent price? Do it yourself. You can find instructions that show you how to bake the headlights in the oven, pry the lenses from the headlight body. Then you can black house the headlight yourself. Seal them back up and re-install. Does that make sense?

I really like how your car is coming along.

I'm afraid of not getting it back in 1 piece

I'm trying to do those simple tiny mods, just in order to make the car look better, thanks for the kind words !

I like the red stripes, different, but I like it.

I would black out the OEM headlights vs getting aftermarket headlights!

Might get my hands on some used OEM headlights for cheap price soon !

Did a stupid mistake and bought "White" LED bulbs for the city lights... I HATE THEM, going back to OEMs ASAP !!

After checking my gearbox oil, I noticed that it's smoked gold-ish color, so I decided to include it with the 105,000KMS service at the stealership. ( Car still under warranty )

They charged me for the gearbox oil labor 30 AED = 10$ USD, since I got them the Honda ATF oil.

After I took the car out, refueled it ( I always go with 98 Octane ), and added the Complete Fuel System cleaner, the car is very smooth, I can feel that difference in output AND no more of that sluggish feeling.

Just wanted to update my info.

Took out the resonator, damn the car sounds alive, I know there's no power gain or anything related to power, but I love how it sounds now. ( will keep it )

But sometimes I smell some kind of smoke for few mins then it's gone, I don't floor it, I just do 3/4 the pedal IF I get excited.

And another thing, after removing the entire resonator, I left no pipe in there, since the resonator is a 1 piece with its pipes, the only remaining stuff now is the airbox with its lower gate and the rubber housing going downward, any ideas if that would harm ? can I take out the resonator pipes out ?

I missed this thread somehow. Nice looking ride.
I'm based in Dubai as well and have the same color car.
Yours looks a lot better though
Would love to know where you got that front lip from and a shop who can do the dechroming of the window trim and grill.
