    Hi all,
    I'm expecting my 58 plate EX 2.2 Accord in a couple of days now, I haven't seen the car in flesh yet, the description says it is fitted with santnav and reverse camera but no mention of reverse parking sensors? Is this normal?

    Hi ballisma,
    I have the EX 58 plate gen 8 model, but in petrol (nearly the same spec) and it has front and rear sensors as well as reverse camera, so your new car should have them as well!

    I'd call up the nearest honda garage with the registration and ask if they've done any forced regens on the DPF lately. If they have done a few it may be need a new one.

    Mmmm interesting
    How often is a regen/ DPF replacement meant to be done?

    Theres been a few members that had DPF problems. They had several regens and had a new DPF. There has been an ECU update since so may be thats fixed it. Either way, Honda may be able to till you if theres been any issues.

    Check the cars had regular oil changes. 0w30 is the that should have been used.

    Check speakers havnt blown. Its common. don't take the volume above 12 when testing and pan fade them, list to something with a good bass line.
