5 Best Aftermarket Mods for Honda Civics

The Honda Civic is one of the most popular cars on the road. Combining fuel efficiency with fantastic looks, it takes you where you want to go in style.

The only thing better than a fresh-from-the-factory vehicle is one that you’ve tuned out yourself. Here are the top five mods to check out when making the Civic your own.

1. Cold Air Intake Systems

Converting your Civic to a cold-air intake is quick, easy, and gives you extra throttle and sound that will make sure you turn heads when ripping down the road. Since it’s one of the simplest mods to install yourself, you can even get discounts with online coupons on auto parts and tools to get you started.

2. Exhaust

Sure, you can stick with Honda’s exhaust and muffler system, but why? There are plenty of options that will make your Civic look better and sound meaner, all while boosting performance.

3. Brakes/Rotors

There’s no sense in adding power and performance if you don’t have the means to stop when you need to. Keep safety a top priority by swapping out stock brakes and rotors, and give your wheels a new look at the same time. 

4. Suspension Kits

Lowering your Civic’s profile does more than making it look cool. Quality suspension kits will help reduce the center of gravity and make cornering a breeze. 

5. Alloy Wheels

Let’s face it, a great set of rims does a lot to make any car look impressive. If you’re getting the Civic new, get the cheapest option for wheels since you’re just going to swap them out for something much better later.

When it comes to getting your mods, you might ask “Is there a store that sells auto parts near me?” Don’t worry, many of these components can be purchased online as well as in stores, making modding your Civic even more convenient!

Launch of E-Vehicles by Okinawa

January 23, 2017 saw the launch of High Performance, Zero emission, Low price E-Vehicles by Okinawa at the Grand Ball Room, Hotel Leela Palace, New Delhi.
Really E-vehicles are the need of the hour, rising fuel prices and more relevant to today’s scenario is the increasing pollution caused by petro driven vehicles.


E-Vehicles have been launched earlier too by other players but have been unable to capture the attention of the public. But in the present state of growing awareness of rising pollution among the public should help Okinawa make inroads into this still very nascent market. And as Mr Jeetender Sharma also pointed out in his address was the major need to make people aware of the many advantages of E-Vehicles as compared to petrol driven ones.


What has been seen in earlier E-Vehicles has been that those electric scooters have all been slow speed ones whereas Okinawa is introducing high speed 55+km/hr electric scooters. Okinawa’s high speed electric scooters can cover a distance of 200 kms with a normal charge which takes about 4 to 6 hours.
Another advantage their scooters have is the dual charge option which , the Fast Charger which takes only 1 to 2 hours.


Okinawa has come up with their first product, Ridge -life charger high speed electric scooter.
It is a beautiful aerodynamically designed scooter available in eye catching color combinations of Red, Green-Gold, Red- White and White.
With alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and telescopic suspension further enhance its all terrain riding capabilities. With 150kgs loading capacity and under the seat storage the Ridge really outclasses any other E bike or scooter.


The Ridge also has approval from RTO’s, Insurance Companies and Leading Banks and financial institutions for easy finance.
The Company is also in talks with the Government to open Charging Stations for multiple E-vehicles .
The Company already has their own manufacturing plant in Rajasthan and is sourcing all parts as per their specifications and strict quality standards locally.

The company plans to bring more high speed and performance driven products in the future to enable the customer some environment friendly easy on the pocket products.


Mr Jeetender Sharma with a rich experience of over 18 years in the auto industry is very ably assisted by his team;Mr Kenji Sumiyoshi,Executive Director, Sales and Marketing and Mr Shotaro Araki,Executive Director-Technical.
Wishing the Company the very best in their honest endeavor to bring an environment friendly product in the market.
Need of the hour really.

Tata Hexa Experience Center- An event I am glad I attended..!

Tata Hexa recently organized a TATA HEXA EXPERIENCE CENTER with a gamut of activities under one roof. Not just activities but the experience center also saw an amalgamation of various Tata brands like Taj Resorts, Tata Capital, Tanishq, Croma Retail etc. img_1953

Talking of activities, there was of course a showcasing of the New Tata Hexa, a beast of an SUV and one could experience the strength and features of the car in more than just one way. There was an opportunity to test drive the car, but more exciting option was an off roading experience where in a special track with apt hurdles, dirt tracks, ramps and stair case was created on the spacious HUDA grounds in sector 29, Gurgaon. img_1978

While watching the cars going this track, climbing up the stairs, sloping down the ramp, entering a ditch of water and twisting and twirling on the planks, I thought to myself that it was going to be one hell of a ride and scary too. But when I actually went for it, it rather turned out to be a very smooth one. The grip, balancing and strength of the car made it all so easy. It was a fantabulous ride and I thoroughly enjoyed it. img_1983

Other than the driving experiences, there was an overload of entertainment with live bands, celebrity engagements and fun zone for kids where they could play interesting games both on screens and off screens. There were a lot of branded food stall like Pizza Hut, Burger King and Karims. But the best part that I loved about the event was a dog adoption zone; I mean what a wonderful thought and collaboration. So while you book your car, you can also take a living gift back home and give them your love and shelter. For me it was truly a delightful concept.

The event was spread across 3 days and made for a truly enjoyable outing for the entire family.
