    Hey guys!

    I got myself a Type-S just over a week ago and im loving it so far! Im new to the accord but have owned many Civics previously (EP3, B16 EK, B18 EG) and can't get enough of the VTEC! The CL9 is a different type of engine and doesnt have that VTEC kick, but thats not what this car is about anyway! I must admit the handling isnt too bad for such a larger car and very comfy!!

    Im loving it, gonna stick some parking sensors on it as im not used to such a large car and parking involving a lot of guesswork! otherwise ur usual goodies, HID kit, led upgrades here and there, will look into lowering it and also look into options of changing the stereo or the xlink thing? Oh and give the car a full service of course! look forward to using this site! Johnny :Wave:

    Type-S.

    Thanks guys, i gave the valve clearances a go yesterday, that rocker cover is hard to get out with the A/C pipe in the way, but i managed to fudged it out lol! Car now feels more ALIVE at lower revs, seems to have picked up some more low end torque! but i snapped one of the bolts holding the rocker cover down so its gonna be a trip to Honda and a new bolt, also means rocker cover needs to come off again grrrrrrrrrr!

    I also want to look into this xlink, but its not cheap, might just stick my old bluetooth headunit in with the adaptor plate thing...however much that costs!
