This is a continuation of my 2003 Type-S build project started here. I will shortly be porting the majority of my modifications to the new car. ______ Well, here goes a proper introduction post to my new girl. She's a 2007 Type-S with Sat Nav in Graphite Pearl, just ticked her onto 80,000 miles, 2 previous owners, last owner had it since 2011 brought from Honda for £9150. Full service history added here for future reference. Initial Observations: The service history isn't exactly to spec, I'll be doing a big overhaul then oil at 6,000, transmission/brakes at 12,000. Squeak from rear right Bridgestone tyre, front tyres are cheap/unbranded - all corners will be swapped for my Primacy 3s. Tracking isn't terrible, but it is out. Will be swapping over to my adjustable rear camber arms and getting Hunter alignment done. Gearbox is really precise but slightly stiff - MTF change. Clutch is high, grabbing well but not disengaging perfectly. It's got life in it but not that much. Will swap my Exedy Lightweight Flywheel, Stage 1 Clutch (with 5000 miles on it) and fairly new Master Cylinder over. The car has had an insane amount of wiper blades and whatever is currently on aren't genuine aero and squeak. I'll swap mine over. I hate being back to yellow bulbs, full LED/HID swap from old car. No floor mats - rubber mats can be swapped over. I still have good condition genuine ones too. Engine's a bit tappety even when warm. Far worse than my other Type-S, we'll see how she is on an oil change, but might need valve adjustment. VSA - just feels different, kicks in more often (probably down to bad tyres) Stiffer suspension - less body roll, tight over speed humps. Ride is greatly, greatly improved. Although the tyre noise is far worse than what I'm used to, the cabin noise "dampening" is way better. Speakers - way more clarity, way less bass. Might swap these out at a later date. Stock differences to my previous Pre-Facelift Type-S: Voice-Activated Sat Nav - that works, non-original 2012-2013 disc, have an original 2010-2011 here too. HFT - which I haven't yet got round to testing out properly. MPG Readout - the "live" and miles left features I was completely unaware of, however she's been driven so far has yielded 26.5mpg haven't yet reset. Better Dials Power Folding Wing-Mirrors Full Facelift Type-S Body (I had the Exec Facelift front-end on my previous with Type-S grill) Half leather (Way more supportive than the full leather and nearly as comfy, miss the seat adjustments I had before and not as easy to clean) Better gripped steering wheel (more buttons for new functions) Stereo volume adjusts with speed. Different prompts and beeps with lights left on etc. There's tons of tiny differences I haven't picked up on yet, look here. All in all, she drives better, is more comfortable, great condition and most of the small niggles are sorted from parts my other car already has. Almost every mod will be changed over, with my old car getting the stock parts from the new one. I'm unsure yet whether the old car will be broken or sold whole for spares/repairs, I'll tackle that later down the line. For now, I need to get an oil change done pronto. A bigger service done soon, and get my old girl back from Cheshire Oaks Honda to get parts swapped over. I'll have a garage page and bring it up-to date with the new car/history and everything else soon.
