My 7 Gen ICTDI is coming up to 168k miles and for the past year it has been feeling unloved. Don't get me wrong, it has still be serviced etc, but I was slowly loosing confidence in the old donkey. However - after a summer of trying to see if it would break under some heavy abuse, I have inadvertedly given it a ruddy good italian tune up... It is running great! I must have free'd up the variable veins on the turbo or blown out some crud or something... I'm now thinking to spend a few quid on her and see if I can get her to last a fair bit longer. The way I see it... if I replace her with a used car (£5-10k), I'll still end up with 'middleaged-car' maintenance bills. If I want care free (less maintenance in theory) motoring in a newer car I'd be looking at £15k+ Hence a few quid on the old Donkey doesnt sound like a bad idea. List of things I want to sort: Definately: Honda Service (check software updates/recalls etc) Alternator belt + bearings Intake runner valve (P2004 error) Play in inner steering arm joint (off side) - noted as advisory during MOT & the steering vagueness is obvious when driving. Wheel refurb (17' Epsilions) - tyres are not sealing properly due to corrosion. Proper strip/blast/repair/powder coat job.. but also tempted to get them diamond cut.. but I know that would not be sensible. Probably also: Air con service Sat Nav DVD refurb HVAC display fix (diy) Possibly: Injector calibration check... New bushes, tie rod ends. ball joints up front Suspension (shocks + lowering springs, or coilovers... depends on price - but no 'ebay special' coilovers etc) Basic body work to tidy up paint and scrub away any rust etc (underside of bonnet, and light amount around jacking points under the car). I've ordered some BG244 which I will run through the system before I send it in for a service (and poss injector calibration). Lets hope she appriciates the love!
