    hello all.
    been away from this site for last 2 years .used to have a 2004 Type-S tourer and it was gr8 but I've finally came back.
    this time with a lovely 8th generation 2.2.I-DTEC Type-S tourer .
    used to be a Honda mechanic but left before these machines were made so have limited knowledge.
    it's being used for towing our caravan and my Dailey commute to work.
    initial thoughts are.....what a machine.
    lovely to drive .
    pretty fast for a diesel .looks fantastic in its colour (not sure what colour it is???)
    has the optional ADAS system fitted which is great for motorway.
    any advice on possible faults I may come across would be fantastic
    cheers guys

    What are the holes near fog lamps? It is a air duct for brakes?
    I have investigated my front bumper, so those holes where shut.

    just had a look mate .
    there not for the brakes they divert extra cold air to the factory front mounted intercooler
    hope that helps
