    Hi all.

    Just a quick introduction.

    Only been a member for a few days, but already found so much useful stuff! Great to be surrounded by so many others who 'get it' when it comes to owning a Honda. Personally, I'm fine with owning a car that's utterly reliable, technologically excellent and exciting to drive - even if it has the 'wrong' badge on the nose!

    Just bought a 08 Legend. I've been after one for ages but couldn't really justify the outlay. But it's at that critical point where they're still relatively affordable but getting towards 10 years old. So if not now, then when?!

    Searched for one with the right spec for months and finally found one in Bristol. A good four hours away, but well worth the trip!

    I'm fully aware of the downsides in terms of fuel economy, but put it in manual mode, use the paddle shifts and throw it round some twisty country roads and the SH-AWD and VTEC will put a massive smile on anyone's face. Then sit on a motorway with the LKAS and ACC working and you'll feel like you're being chauffeured - and get around 40mpg at a constant 60mph.

    An amazing car and a real technology demonstrator for everything Honda stands for.

    I'll be posting pics of the car later in the garage for anyone interested.

    But for now, just wanted to say hello as I delve through the archives...

    Thanks for the welcomes, everyone. Finally added a few pics of the car to the garage - was waiting for it to stop raining, but it's been lashing down all week!

    (btw, does anyone know how to flip the picture that's gone in upside down?!)

    Did you take the photos with a phone ? You may have to go into edit and then rotate the photo.
    You can then go into your garage, edit, delete the upside down picture and replace with the one you have put the right way up,

    Hi MickyB, thanks for that.

    I can edit the vehicle and see the images, but I'm not seeing an option to delete one. Funny thing is, the photo is the right way up on my computer, it just seems to be inserted into the garage upside down!

    Go into your garage. Go to the bottom under the box box for messages and on the left you will see edit. Click that and you will be taken into the garage you should then be able to find the upside down photo and remove it. Then just add a photograph and put the new one in.

    @MickyB members can't delete Garage entry photos (just a quirk of the software),

    @Redvee I've rotated and re-uploaded the upside down picture for you.
