    so how do you like this Freed by the way? any experience of it? i have so many questions in my mind of its functions but don't know whom to ask. i even downloaded its owners manual of 259 pages but unfortunately its in Japanese language. being administrator, can you guide me a bit?

    @alakamran I've moved your question above into your Project Log. This is a better place to keep us update on your car and post any questions you have about it.

    I'm really intrigued by the Freed, looks great, it's the first one I've seen on HK.

    @Ichiban would you happen to know if an English version of the Owners Manual is available anywhere for the Freed ?

    thank you so much Gee, for sparing time and taking interest in this car.
    the car is no doubt is very "cool" to be precise. specious, smooth drive, aerodynamic, and full of technology. its sliding doors are automatic which gave it a distinct style. when i checked HK 1st time, i was quite hopeful that on this website or in this community i will find many Freed owners but alas, i was wrong.
    this car is very popular in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and japan. the catchy phrase for it is "this car is for a person with active life style"
    i have changed the rims, tires and horns as originally there was only 01 horn in it. let me attach the pics.

    Great looking car and I am happy to see that it's in the hands of a caring owner which is what it deserves.
    I think the issue is the Freed was never offered in EU or U.K. The biggest Honda bus we got was the FR-V/Edix. Accord and Edix are both discontinued now and the only way of getting them is to import them. SpeedyGee has a JDM Edix and quite a few members have Elysion here.

    :happycrying: so happy to know that you judged how picky I am about my ride, legend-ary. even my 08 years old daughter knows how to treat her daddy's car, no eating or drinking nor spoiling of any sort.
    I always say, the way a man treats his car is how he treats himself :Hey:

    the person from whom i purchased my Freed had one more Freed of same model and specs but that one came with this GTbox muffler fitted, from japan. the person who bought Freed with this muffler doesnt liked it and offered me a free swap i.e. i gave mine to him (the original simple soundless muffler) and he gave this one to me. i agreed and installed it. all the fittings were exact except this muffler.

    the question is, does these muffler somehow reduce the performance of car/ engine? i mean choking of exhaust system or something etc.

    i don't have much experience in exhaust system nor i ever installed these type of mufflers before.
    - - - Updated - - -
    from the term "fittings" i meant pipe bents and rubber mounting brackets etc. all were exact replica which shows that this muffler was specifically for freed. the fitting guy just unbolt flange, removed original system and installed it in less then 10 min i guess.
    - - - Updated - - -
    that other Freed also has, full body kit installed in it, i think who ever owned it back in Japan must be into cars like us!

    Generally speaking Sports exhaust tend to be a more free flowing than standard (quiet) exhausts.

    Do you have any any pics of it ?

    I don't think having the GT box will do anything positive or negative to the performance of the car other than increase the noise. Unless the whole exhaust is opened up with larger diameter piping there might not be any difference in performance. Opening the exhaust too much actually has adverse effects on performance unless you are running some serious engine mods so in your case I would say don't worry about the GT box and leave it in as being a Hybrid I doubt there is much to be extracted from the engine.

    Thanks for the effort mate but it seems i have to do more digging as this information is for Freed not Freed Hybrid.

    Still, many thanks!
