    Hi fellow Honda lovers,
    Just joined the club, mainly to share experience / parts sources etc with likeminded people.
    Got about 115000 miles on the clock, don't put many miles on it, but used daily. I love the reliability and performance though - do all my own maintenance and repairs.
    Also look after the wifes 2003 Rover 45 TD (her Dad bought it new), had that about 9 years - no way as good as the Honda.
    I looked up how many 5th generation Accord Coupes were out there - only 20 - 40 on the road in UK. I suppose this has reinvigorated my enthusiasm. It is fair to say that I have neglected the cosmetic side a little, but always looked after the mechanicals pretty well. Last year I replaced the front discs, rebuilt the calipers etc, new bottom balljoints. I also refabricated one of the rear wheel arches - the first welding of the bodywork since new!
    I'm currently trying to sort out the ABS light staying on code 1-8, ABS modulator, as MOT coming up. Seems to be more apparent in winter (moisture/cold). can't see any evidence of leakage. Any advice welcome.
    Nick

    Welcome to Honda Karma @burymeinit :Hey:

    A full flush of the brake fluid is worth a punt, if that doesn't help that ABS unit maybe on the way out.
