Bought back in February after the untimely demise of my beloved Vivaro So that was how I got her and as far as aesthetics go, I have done very little with her aside from a little company branding Spent a small fortune on her prior to this: HAMP oil filter Millers XF 5w30 Fully Synthetic Oil Millers CR-X 75w90 Gearbox Oil MFactory Magnetic Drain plug in engine and box Pipercross Drop in filter Removed resonator box in the bumper 4x GoodYear Asymetric 2's Mintex 1144's on the front Brembo blank discs all round Mintex pads on the back Mintex Handbrake Shoes 4x Honda Wheel Bearings 2x Front lower arms Cat-Back Stainless Steel Exhaust All M6 bolts in engine bay replaced with my own countersunk jobbies And to bring you right up to date. The poor K24 went pop. Well, I say it went pop, it was entirely my own fault. Having owned in excess of 100 Hondas in various shapes and sizes I still took it for granted that it was a more modern car and that 5000 miles wasn't a massive amount between services. A light ticking noise came into the engine and upon inspection I came to the conclusion there was a little oil starvation that had ruined one of the LMA's. Not to worry, I had a complete K20 sitting I could rob parts off, so drove on as I couldn't have the car off the road until the weekend. Well that light ticking noise was NOT in the head at all, it was infact a spun bearing which went from being a light ticking to a terminal knocking. So thats dead!!! New K24a3 with 65k on the clock and a fresh gearbag with 51k on it should be landing here tomorrow, so we'll get that thrown back in and hopefully have my nice reliable Honda back. bit gutted, I bought a Honda again thinking reliability and initial purchase price would have kept my costs to a minimum. Well I am now £6500 total into the car so I guess I will be keeping it for some years to come.
