    Cheers guys, I'm going to service it in the next couple of weeks, doing engine oil+filter, gearbox oli+filter, air filter, anything else you guys can think of, do they have a fuel filter in the system that'll need doing? I'm also thinking about using an engine cleaner/flush product, any recommendations?

    Brake and clutch fluid flush might be a good idea too.

    Has the car got traceable service history .. if not you want to be changing all the fluids and filter plugs the lot for peace of mind.

    There is honda service history up until a couple of years ago then no stamps, this did make me think a bit but the engine sounds perfect, but I was going to do a full engine and gearbox service just to be sure, so you guys think plugs and brake fluid too?

    Cheers for that CJ I'll get on to Holdcroft in the week to get some prices.

    I assume the idle speed check is something that needs to be done by honda

    Idle speed needs checking as long as you don't see the RPM needle hunting at normal temperature then you don't need to. The RPM needle is pretty much steady when the steering wheel is dead ahead on a flat ground.
