EXHAUST TIP FOR OLD HONDA CITY
I have been reading your magazine since I was 15, that is, for the past four years now, and I have enjoyed reading each and every issue. Your pictures are very nice and your knowledgeable writing helps me in understanding cars, which are my passion. My dad handed me his old 2007 Honda City when I got my driving licence and I want to add an exhaust tip to make it look a little cooler. I have found one that looks classy and will work well for me. However, I have two questions regarding this. One, my mechanic says I will have to get it welded on or screwed on to the stock exhaust, so how will this affect the exhaust? Two, will it change the sound and performance of the car? Please advise me. I am only 19 years old and have just begun driving a car. Your expert opinion will be of great help to me. Alok Anand, Ujjain Dear Alok, Unless you are thinking of buying a new exhaust system or at least a tip with a resonator, there won't be a change in either the performance or the sound of the car. It is just a vanity accessory which will add that little bit of shine to your car's rear end. As for how it will affect the stock pipes of your car, there shouldn't be any changes there, but it will all depend on the state of your stock exhaust and what type of tip you choose to install. We wish you happy and safe motoring!
