    Just been out and fitted a new Honda gear knob. I'll post some pictures and a bit of write up later as it was rather fiddly and a high risk of plastic being broke.

    Hi Smokingman, I'm interested in your experiences with this DAB kit, if you've managed to install and "live" with it yet. I noticed your other thread about it and was considering it myself but was put off a little when I read the operating instructions on their site, in the way that the buttons take on a new and "secret" function, accessed via a secret-handshake-under-the-leg-but-make-sure-you-do-it-before-it-times-out type of button press, IYSWIM, and the way there is no way to directly select a station: they must be scrolled through. Basically I was just a little worried it would be un-intuitive and a bit cumbersome to operate. The other thing was the presence of the additional antenna on the windscreen and how intrusive - and frankly "unpleasent" (for want of better expression) - it would be.

    Also interested in sound quality, ease of installation type aspects, etc, too. What have your experiences been so far?

    Morning Dudley.
    Hopefully I'll be in a positions to answer all your questions soon as I will not fit it for at least a week.

    Today I fitted some fog light protectors made by Wayne Foden of this site. He's never made any for 8th Generation Accord so mine was a guinea pig! Cost £25 Inc P & P They are well made to follow the profile of the lens and fitted with two Velcro style fittings to enable removal and cleaning. Far cheaper than now lights from Mr Honda. The photos are without and with. P7300316.JPG P7300317.JPG
