    Bigger engine and Honda have always put performance engines at lower servicing thresholds. The S2000 and NSX were also the same.

    Whoa! Didn't expect the big 'un to have a BELT driven cam instead of a chain!!!! Still my purchase is a 35k miler on a 57 plate, so I guess I shouldn't worry too much?

    Biggest bonus is that its converted properly to run on lpg - the reason why i'm moving up from an FN2 Civic (which I will miss dearly) to this. I've had my eyes on her for a few months and the dealer knocked off 3 grand so I just had to!

    Hi Dr_D, That's quite a rare beast having LPG. I have only ever seen one previously advertised for sale with LPG and that was in the Midlands, but if it runs well on it you have overcome the only real negative about owning these cars. My Legend is the fastest car I have ever owned and in general use I drive it more slowly than any car I have owned to keep the MPG up. Despite this, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine.

    Welcome along Dr_D please do show us your ride. It must be a massive change from the FN2 but imagine a Tyre R with SH-AWD.
