WARNING PIC & TEXT HEAVY POST
Well guys, it's been wayyyy too long. It has been quite the eventful year or so, and I hadn't done much to my car most of that time...almost neglected it. I never could use those GD3 shocks, as they still were too long so, don't do that lol. Ended up getting more F2 refills for the rear, and ran those (which blew in 6 months, I rode on them for far too long after that).
Fast forward to a month or so ago, I finally got a decent chunk of money ...
I've scoured the manual and the specs sheets to find what trims have the outside temp sensor. It says in the manual "*only available on certain models" but it doesn't say which ones anywhere that i can find
I have a Canadian LX which has the 7" screen and the temp doesn't show where it should. do I have to calibrate it or is my LX without this option?
I doubt a $10 Led even rated at 180 lumens, could be much more than a DRL/accent light?
Let us know if the output is enough to be used as a Fog/Driving/Aux light as stated. If you get that for $10, then you have done well.
One of my 1 Watt led DRL applications...blinding at any distance, even in daylight.
(Lolz...V-Led is Located in Bellingham WA, about an hour and a half from me)
If the engine isn' losing oil it'll last as long as you want. At 200k the parts are starting to show their wear but still works ok.
As for the understeer (9steer right, slide left) you need to check your tires. And you can disconnect, not remove, the driver side AntiSwayBar link to cut back on the undesteer. As for the lock, check if your key is worn out and all you need is a new oNE. BASED ON THE KEY DESIGN, NOT CUT OFF THE OLD ONE.
"Soooo ive got a ton of questions and have no idea where to start. First things first, im not a mechanic. I can however use tools, and follow directions!
So i've got a 07 fit sport (AT), with 191,026 on it. Other then oil, and now my 3rd set of tires, i've had ZERO issues, and ZERO matenience done.
I am the second owner, first owner was a person who worked at the dealership, and would use it just to commute to work. I bought it in 08, with 50,000 miles. I've had it since then.
Now im starting to see some change in power, especially when using paddle shifters, and i've also started to notice my headlights dimming, but im pretty sure im the one who caused that by installed 2x12inch type r subs
I have a list of things I want to do with the fit, and really, i just dont know where to ..."
Post up your last 3 screen and let's see who's getting the worst fuel economy.
I'm getting 26.7 average over the last three fills. And real world fuel economy is 1.5 mpg less than indicated on my car. Can anyone beat that?
Just arrived today... Waiting on some H&R 10mm spacers to still utilize my RE30s. Have some Advan RZs, Volk CE28Ns and CE28CRs (not till January) on order, all16x7+42 to clear the calipers. Recommended size by J's. The REs are 16x6.5+45. Tried ordering another set of REs, but Rays has stopped making sizes smaller than 18". Seems most of their wheels are no longer being made in smaller sizes, definitely all the new models.
I'm not a car guy at all, so the best feature for me is the customizable wallpaper on the EX. That's as far as I will go for now in case of mods. I sure wish there's an option to manually change the size and adjust position, but I guess this works for now. I plan to do others since there is the big digital clock version, and the traditional clock look too...
I purchased the EX-L with Navigation and only paid just over $19,000. Here is how.
I got had contacted about ten Honda dealers letting them know exactly what I wanted. I finally got the call and went straight in. I haggled the price down to just below MSRP because here in San Diego demand is beyond high. Then the salesman started with the extras. I agreed to purchase to almost all the extras as long as the vehicle price was lowered. Now, they get a nice cut from the ...
Well its been almost 3 weeks and two different dealerships trying to find me a 2015 Fit EX 6-Spd in black or gray. The first dealership promised me the car in under a week no matter what, obviously if your reading this post you realize that that never happened. Everyday it was the same lame excuse until finally I went to a different dealer, in which I was treated much better.
So it's been a week so far with the current dealership I am working with and I cant complain ...
My mirror doesn't dim as much as I would like at night. It doesn't dim the headlights behind me enough. Have any of you found this to be true? I'm wondering about finding another mirror or just putting some tinted material over the mirror at night.
I'm currently using 15w40 Castrol Oil & I'm thinking of switching to fully synthetic 5w40(honda).
What are the vast difference except one is synthetic. Thank you.
PS. I live in a tropical weather & the car was from Japan(left-hand drive).
I got one of the front bumper product update letters. So I called My dealer Courtesy Palm Harbor Honda FL and started to ask the normal question. Do you have parts in stock? What time can you schedule me in and one of the last questions was is the beam only painted with primer. Customer service rep. couldn't answer. Finally I got transferred to the general service manager. The general service manager said it was painted with a primer only. I explained I had another ...
I had my windows tinted several weeks ago, and it cost a LOT compared to what I've seen others quoted for tint, even in this area. I specifically chose a place based on the fact that they had stellar reviews and were accustomed to working on cars running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and figured my little $20k Fit would be given the royal tint treatment. After reading their reviews, I expected that the job would be pretty flawless and that, at the very least, I ...
here is my GK with 15x7.5 +32 ccw rips it need more negative camber up front, even stock. do they even make crash bolts for the GK yet?
*don't bother telling me it is too tall, this was just a quick mounting of tires. the car is a daily that will see 30k a year. i think i will get a set of 16's with better tires next season, since snows will be on the car soon.
Sorry for no tutorial... It's pretty self explanatory when you start through the settings. Just set it up for the first time. Apparently the files can be too large also.
And! I changed some background setting so it goes to wallpaper instantly and goes to normal radio screen when I touch any buttons.
Best Buy had 16gb for $9.99! And this is where you put the screensaver photos. The darn close up pics make my 1000 mile car look beat up. It's really not!
So I found out that the sales manager got this car on trade the day it got off the truck. He personally called the service manager of the other dealer and requested no add-ons or plates. Most likely a tech or service writer wasn't paying attention when they did it.
I'm going to call the dealership it was traded from and see what they can do. They should be able to replace the panel under the steering wheel no problem, because they remove it to install that shitty alarm.
