    Repairs/Maintenance Still To Be Done:
    • Problem with the turbocharger or vacuum/boost release system. Still unresolved by Honda and me. (turbocharger needed a full service, repair and recondition)
    • Air Conditioning system not blowing cold despite two recharges being done. Compressor kicks in, no leaks. Back to Honda it seems. (was the relay)
    • Drivers door window closes very slowly and again it sometimes returns to the open position when trying to close. (never managed to fix this)
    Projects Still To Do:
    • Install Rear Dash Cam
    • Possibly change the front HID headlights to a cooler bulb colour temperature
  1. Hi ArtifFire, I've just been told by main dealer that I need to have the rear drop links changed - was it an easy job when you did yours? Geth
  2. New image added. Does anyone know where the Images Gallery Tab is? When you go in to edit the original item it says this: "Note: These images are located in the image gallery tab of your Item." but I can't find the tab?

      I was looking for that myself last night, couldn't find it. Ended up just removing and readding the pictures again

      Apologies, I removed the dedicated gallery tab and added them as thumbnails on the first tab instead. I've just updated that description to reflect the change.

  3. I'm really digging the colour too, would look great with some tints on.
  4. I really like that colour - she looks in lovely condition.
