    Love that interior not fan of the fake wood which I have in my car too :Angry: your might been the first ever diesels shipment to land in the UK with a 53 plate . You made sure you had all the extended warranty applied to this car .?

    To be honest i don't know anything about extended warranty.
    Not sure if Honda here offer such things.
    I just presumed once it went out of its warranty then that was it :Unknown: .

    There is the VSA module ,Timing Chain ,manifold and numerous other product updates. The I-CTDI engine may have been the first engine to receive so many remedial action & updates in Honda's history. Have a search for these topics buddy it all documented here. I just want you to be sure a car of your age having survived this long would mean it would have those updates. If it hasn't then you need to prepare yourself for the unexpected.

    This is not to scare you but it a realistic fact it can happen as past history has shown this happens all too often and has stung hundred of diesel owners.

    Check with your local Honda dealer on MaRIS with your VIN number it will list all the warranty work on your car irrespective which dealer it was done.

    I contacted the local Honda dealer about the Manifold crack but no joy "we don't cover them anymore" is what i was told.
    I removed the manifold myself and got it welded,seems good so far.

    As for the chain it does seem to rattle just a bit so it will need doing
    I will be doing it myself so it will be just parts that will cost. With it being a Honda i presume the parts won't be cheap.
    Has anybody got any idea of what the timing chain kit costs???.

    Thanks for the help :Thumbup: .
