alikishi,

pang HID yata kasi yung headlight housing ng Civic '06 model, while yung sa Vios, Jazz at City is for the normal halogen type. kaya kahit HID ang ilagay, sabog ang ilaw.

yep... that's what I thought too.  yung 2.0 na top of the line civic is already pre-installed with a 4.3k HID and since most probably hindi naman sila magpapalit ng housing for the lower models, pwede na rin sa akin.

Right now, I just like the look of an all white headlights, though I left the high-beam with the halogen bulb for the rainy season if ever

Ali, do you see a cut off of the HID lights when you face a wall?

Guys,

Aside from the fluids and tire pressure, what do you usually check before heading out for a long trip?

Udongski,

Check the belts. And if applicable the accelerator and clutch cables (if you have one).

@bravoexo,

@Udongski, spare tire, spare fluids, tools, emergency devices, flashlights, batteries, food....hmm, ano pa ba.  Condition of the threads ng tires too siguro.

So they're not projectors?  (judging only from the last pic)  Nice white HIDs though.  How far was that white car? 

I think the reach is a bit short though.

Yep, reflector talaga yung headlights ko.  and yeah parang medyo short yung reach.  is there a way to "realign" the lamp?

the white car siguro is around 20 to 25 meters away (though that is a very rough estimate... mahina kasi ako sa mga distances)

aly,

may screw dapat na pwede kang galawin para i-adjust yung headlight to your preferences.  syempre, wag lang masyado mataas kase baka mabulag naman yung kasalubong mo.

alikishi,

May screw to adjust the headlight aim, pero I don't suggest na DIY. have someone at the casa or shop do it. alam ko may parang "template" or jig na kinakabit sa headlight housing bago i-set yan.

have your headlights adjusted by professionals or your dealer's service center...
based on the first photo, it's a bit on the "crossed-eyed" side...

can you recommend someone?  hindi ba masyadong hassle kung pupunta pa sa dealer para lang maadjust?

Guys, I'm considering in purchasing a Honda Accord like the one in the pics/images below.  I plan to use it as my second/extra car (I now drive a 1996 mid-size sedan already).




But have the following questions (specially to those who owns or owned one):

1. What are usual problems that came out with this unit?
2. Is there a 2 liter - manual transmission version of this car?
3. Is this the 98' to 01' Accord model?
4. How much do these cost nowadays?
5. How's gas consumption and/or fuel efficiency (city/highway)?
6. Things to look out for in buying a second hand of this car?

Thanks in advance
