1) you cant fix wheel caps
2) well if you want to color door handle and ovrm then the difference is 5000/- in that case go for exmt model. but I would personal suggest you to let the ovrm be black and even the handles, as they tend to get scratches

I have seen one of my neighbors having Amze Ex with After market wheel caps, so it is possible, though only after market.

Painting can be done at Honda's or even outside. So for common colors like white, silver , its better to look for outside as they would be economical and paint matching is well.
For other metallic colors, prefer Honda.

dealer will always insist on buying the higher end models, as the profit margin is more in higher end models. They will discourage you to buy accessories from outside. ajay rath has fallen in their trap.
you can fix wheel caps from market.

Anup,
please do some reading and please talk to dealers before you comment that I have fallen in trap. The bolt length on which the wheel is mounted is small so if you mount the wheel cap you don't get sufficient treading to hold the wheel. You have to either alter the bolt which is expensive or go for alloy wheels. One thing I realized about Honda is that Japanese save every cent on to maximize profit and further creating different variant. I hope I have answered your doubts

Wheels caps can be added to any wheels.Door handle painting can be got done at authorized service centers.However considering the costs involved and mainly of satisfaction of owning new car,it would be advisable to go for higher variant itself.

Dear Ajay,
I have asked accessories shop owner, he has told that wheel cover can be put on any wheel without alteration . Even expert shiva has told that it can be fixed. If you ask honda dealer he will discourage you to put wheel cap from outside dealers. He will insist on buying it from them or will advice you to go for higher end model.

A wheel cap can be put on any wheel, the point is how it is fitted. Some are bolted on, like the one Mr Ajay is referring to, this may not be possible given the length of the bolt (Have not checked this myself assuming Ajay has), the other is the press fit type which holds on to the rims of the wheel. The later has a disadvantage of falling off when you hit a pothole (though you can use a plastic string to keep it from getting lost like a lot of taxi guys), the bolted on one is best as this does not fall off.

Dear Anup,
Please measure the bolt length in the base variant i.e..EMT and then measure it on SMT variant. Also check the no. of threads the nut catches in both variant. Please then decide whether wheel cap can be bolted to the entry level Honda amaze. It will clear the buyers doubts as safety concerned is involved. I really don't think Honda dealer will lie or would like to lose revenue by not selling wheel caps on the entry level car, until and unless he is unaware.

Mr. Rudy is a person at the linkway Honda - Chandivali ( Andheri east) . Please speak to him, as he is highly experience person.

At times we have to believe in human being. That all I got to say.

Dear Ajay,
You are saying that Shiva is not expert and a mechanic in Bombay is expert. In future we have to contact a person refered by you. Dear As has been told by Perumbalan and Shiva wheel cap can be fixed on any wheel. There is no need of measuring treads and bolts.

Only bolting type wheel caps cannot be fitted to Amaze, just find a good quality wheel rim, which will have spring reinforcement,it will hold on nicely to the wheels.

dear Ajay,the main thing is that wheel can be fixed on the wheel.There is no problem in safety, as it is clamped on the wheel without touching the screws and bolts.
moreover if wheel cap is to installed by honda dealer, they replace the bolts and it will cost around 10K.

Price depends on design, size, quality and brand, there are wheel caps placed in a wide price range.

It's upto you to choose the price range and design, since that is what matters.

Mr. Anup, just let it go, he will never understand, it's his frustration talking, he'll just keep on posting an array of answers which is irrelevant of the question, ultimately it's the questioner who'll be at loss.
