    Hi there,
    After almost 12 years since selling my 1st Honda (M reg Civic saloon) I am now the owner of the family friendly FR-V. Reluctantly sold my much loved Mercedes 1998 C Class 2.3 Sport Kompressor to accommodate for 3 child seats. In the end got a 2006 petrol sport in black. Wasn't too keen on it at first because of it looking dirty too quickly but after the first clean and shine changed my mind as I love paintwork that ends up with a mirror finish.

    Only cover about 1 mile on a typical weekday so mostly used on weekends as a family car. Like the bling bling chrome on the exterior but hate the "wood" dashboard, it has to go! Of course goes without saying that if the dash gets changed then it means getting a double din unit at the same time ££££.

    I wasn't keen on the wood dash either so swapped out the left and right panned with the black and popped in a double din.. Looks much neater in my opinion.

    Never used to be a fan of chrome when i had my mx5 in fact it was frowned upon on certain forums but i think the FR-V and CR-V look good with a bit of chrome especially on a black car. In fact the side steps I've added are chrome :Smile:

    Nice FR-V you have there. Personally I like the chrome with the black.
