Aloha Guys! I just bought my first brand new car and I decided to go with the 2013 Honda Fit Sport Manual to replace my BMW E36 due to transmission going out for the second time. I didn't want to spend and put more money into the car no more so I decided to purchase a new car and I'm so excited! Scored the car $16k out the door of the dealership here in Charleston, SC
Ok, back from the shop... as usual. JDM Modulo side skirts installed. Apparently some of the clips were in bad shape so the tech there had to modify them to get the skirts to stay on. The side skirts are a little loose, but secure enough so that they won't fall off. Here it is out of the shop. Sporting my new J's Racing grill. Side profile. I think this looks MUCH better than the USDM version. Looking pretty.
My primary concerns are, in order:
safety (of course)
country of origin (I want USA/CA)
I drive about a 65/35 mix of city/highway. Where I am, it is very dry so wet driving isn't as important (although I don't want it to be really poor in the wet either). I don't care about winter driving at all because I have dedicated winter tires for that. I'm a boring driver and don't really care about "performance" in terms ...
I bought my '08 Fit Sport in November and I've been loving the car. I ran into my first issue with it this week. The car has been having issues starting. To get it started I have to use Quick Start. If I give it gas right after it starts, the engine stalls. If I let it run for ten minutes or so it's good to drive.
I took it to a mechanic yesterday. He told me that it started fine every time they tried to start it. He kept it over night, and sure enough, it didn't start ...
Hey guys, I have a question. I am currently running Swift springs and I need to replace my OEM suspension because of the mileage I have now over a 111 K. I talked to Chris over at RedShift/ Best suspension and he was unbelievable help. I would just like to get a few more opinions. Do you guys recommend replacement struts and shocks, buddy club n+, or Tanabe Sustec?
Played with some red vinyl this past weekend. need to get a different vinyl since this one wasn't "red" enough. Prob will follow the body line on the next go round instead of going around/above the blinker/reverse light area.
I-24 W, after the I-40 split coming into Nashville, I had to come to a complete stop in 75 mph traffic. The person in front of me was tailgating... and the person in front of them decided to 'serve them right' and stop completely on a blind curve. Luckily, I saw them monkeying around and I gave more than ample room and slowed down a bit. Coming around that curve, though, I had enough room to stop, but the girl behind me was changing lanes and didn't see that folks had ...
I just started my installation tonight on my 2009 Honda Fit Sport with 97K on the odometer. Spark plugs have been changed to one step colder NGK.
NGK BRK 7EIX-11 gapped ~ 1.2 mm
Here are my injectors almost like new back from Boost Lab after cleaning and flow tested. Fuel atomization with a fine mist spray pattern is important. Notice the injectors flow rate after clean is nearly identical. I will eventually have to change the fuel filter in the fuel pump. ...
I went in for my B14 and to do work on my brakes today at 101K miles. I spent $600+ last month on a valve adjustment and new fuel injectors. 6 months before I spent $700+ on new boots and spark plugs. I know I needed the work done on the engine and the brakes due to poor performance and codes. I haven't had any issues with my cooling system or timing chain. However, he tried to sell me the $700 water pump tune up w/ new pump, hoses, seals, timing chain, and coolant flush. Is ...
Just installed prokit on my 2012 fit,looks great but ride is choppier than I expected. Have had 2 lowered civics before,not nearly as choppy ride. Don't know if it's the shorter wheelbase or what. South florida roads pretty good, so I'm kind of surprised. Might have to go with japan modulo strut spring combo instead.
Since the threads are slow today and I saw this on another forum (Acurazine) and thought it was a good idea I figured it would be interesting to see what people posted here.
Just fill in whatever you done to your fit today. If its a modification, washed it, drove, anything chime in. Could be a fun thread to see peoples progress/activity.
To start things off I made my back emblem match my front emblem today. Sorry I will have to post pics of the back later but here is my ...

My 2010 GE Sport AT, 42k miles. Recently started making a very intermittent noise.
For about a second or less at a time, I've noticed it on rare occasions when driving in town (30 mph on average). My best description is that it sounds like an 80% combination of a big gust of wind and 20% like if you cranked the starter when the car was already running. It's a pretty quiet sound so it may also happen on the highway but be drowned out by road noise (so I'm not sure it only ...
