Honda All New HR-V Bodykit Sales Starts On Facebook
With more than 21,000 buyers already, this bodykit will sell.
There are many Malaysians who want to give their new a unique look, despite having strict warranty policies in place. Still, a body styling kit will not bring an issue to a new vehicles factory warranty unless it involves some additional running lights or daytime running lights being installed which needs connection to the vehicles CAN-BUS system
With the rising popularity of the all new Honda HR-V (already 23,000 plus bookings) and even with Honda Malaysia themselves offering a bodykit as part of the purchase accessories, the ‘aftermarket’ industry in Malaysia has started promoting their own soured bodykits from overseas to cater to this popular vehicle.
With some Malaysians already putting aside a sizable amount of money to individualize their new HR-V with alloys wheels and even exhaust tips, the addition of bodykit to enhance the already handsome looks of the all new HR-V will be next on their list.
However, we advise new HR-V owners to please check with their purchase showroom ‘service advisor’ before installing any bodykit or even large alloy wheels to confirm that their factory warranty will not be affected.
DO NOT completely believe what the bodykit ‘shop’ or ‘salesperson’ tells you.
Best, if you double check as in the past we have seen many new car owners, all brands, who install aftermarket kits having issues with factory warranty claims and even worse, not being able to claim on factory recalls because of accessories installed.
Remember this, all modern cars with high technology and high safety features, like this new HR-V will have technology updates and recalls at some time or another to keep the vehicles running reliably. You do not want to miss this and be out of pocket just because of some wrong information from a salesperson selling an accessory.
Meanwhile, pictured here is a handsome looking bodykit and this should be no issue to install as it looks like a simple bolt on accessory that will not connect with your vehicle electronics.
All-New HR-V will be offered in five colours, Ignite Red Metallic, Meteoroid Gray Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic and Ruse Black Metallic.
The All-New HR-V prices are RM114,800 for the 1.5L, RM129,800 for the 1.5 Turbo E, RM134,800 for the 1.5T V and RM140,800 for the e:HEV RS version.
