FirstHonda's Third Honda...
Daily Driver Owned by FirstHonda

  • Daily driver, supplied new in May 2015 (2014MY) as a replacement for my Twilight Blue CR-V, which had a paintwork issue.

    The "SR Navi" is one grade below the top of the range EX in the CR-V family.

    It has alcantara / part leather seats instead of full leather, and also loses the following when compared to the EX grade:

    - Glass roof
    - Keyless entry and keyless "go"
    - Electronic tailgate
    - Powered drivers seat

    Modifications & Optional Extras

    Premium Pack, comprising:

    - Front and rear mud flaps
    - Front and rear carpet mats
    - Boot tray
    - Side protectors

    Additional accessories, fitted from new:

    - Oval exhaust finisher
    - Rear bumper step protector

    My accessory 'wish list' :

    - Spare set of alloys (now fitted OEM 'Lyra' 18", May 2016)
    - Rear roof spoiler
    - Running boards (OEM 'stylish' rather than OEM 'full length')
    - Front rubber mats for Winter use
    - Genuine Honda CR-V 'Sports Grille' colour coded in white orchid pearl (now fitted, May 2016)

    Accessories finally fitted (Optional Extras - )
  1. Another fine CR-V example and unusual wheels ,I have the same sports grille on silver and I like it but would it will looks better if it was black to blend with the headlights ?
    If someone have a Photoshop please can you try how would it looks if the sport grille is black?
  2. Looks lovely, the only engine Honda in Ireland are supplying now is a 1.6D :-S
  3. what other cars where you looking at when you bought this beast?
    1. FirstHonda Avatar
      All sorts of things, as long as they were petrol powered and automatic. Medium sized cars - the Mazda 3, small SUVs - the MINI Paceman, larger SUVs - Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester and XV...all sorts. The CR-V was my favourite though, and I think it was a great choice.

      What is your average fuel consumption. Mine is 40% above stated figure (40,000 Km covered). Any recommendations?? Thanks

  6. Quite an uncommon colour, you don't see many in white at all. She looks stunning Ed, I've only just been catching up with the saga of your previously owned CR-V!

      Have you had any issues with the brakes grinding at low speeds?

      Nope, no issues. It has only done 400 miles so far.

  7. Ah so you had problems with the paint!

    I must say the white one looks the part. Very nice! Congratulations.

  9. Funnily enough, I was in Aylesbury today and thinking about your car. Was tempted to drive past the dealership and have a look for a lonely white CR-V but got distracted
