03 Ford mustang GT 5MT. Great car that put up with a bunch of my abuse, but it just wasn't the car for where I'm at in my life anymore. Not to mention that it really wasn't that fast compared to similar cars today. Technology has really come a long way.
I took delivery of my white EX-L about 1 week ago and thought Iíd share my various projects as time progresses. This is the first project and what I consider one of the best. My previous vehicle (Ford Explorer) had xenon projectors and now Iím spoiled and canít go back, kind of like going from a flip phone to a smart phone. I will be installing TRS Bi-Xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III DS2 with 4300k bulbs. Iím also installing VLED V3 Triton switchback bulbs in place of the ...
Tmfit/Cheezwhiz, certainly nice to be back. Still learning a lot from the guys who have posted since my FF break in July. Lowering really makes the ride look super cool. Congrats to bbmouthh - what a great job!!!! My bad luck as the driveway entrance is just too steep to allow for lowering.
Woke up early today before kick-off and installed the following. My Fit is beginning to look a bit too busy. One thing for sure, if you guys ever see my ride parked on the island, ...
I really wanted to like this car but this whole experience with the dealership, defects and shotty repairs done on my vehicle that devalues it, really is getting on my nerves. Not a good experience with the Honda customer service agent Johnathan. Received a call from Johnathan directly to tell me my dealership was not going to replace my windows even though they replaced my windshield do to the same issue. Also told me my dealership said they showed the honda rep in the area ...
Just picked up a set of four 16" stock EX alloy wheels and tires for $500.
Good deal or not?
Suppose it doesn't matter as it is a done-deal, but I was dying to lose the steel wheels/hub caps on my LX.
Go ahead ... hammer me with your opinions
I have a Subaru Impreza. Supposedly its made for someone as tall as 6'7"...and I fit quite well in it. But the car is getting old and my son is taking after me and will not fit in the back too much longer without a lot more whining. So I've been looking for a new car. Right now the Prius is my first choice (big enough and great mpg). But...its not the best looking car. Now I know the Fit has a ton of space in the back (measurements put it waaaay bigger than my car and even ...
My son put a set of Weathertech mats in the front of his Fit. They fit perfectly, and they look great. They have high sides all around, so sand, snow, and slush will remain inside the mat till you dump it. I ordered a set for mine. They are jet black, although the flash lightened them a bit.
They're called FloorLiners, #447051, $127.95 delivered.
I'm running stock alignment. A touch more camber might be enough to eliminate the occasional rubbing - it's just kissing the plastic liner right where it meets the fender - about halfway down the tread as it wraps over the side of the tire: More pics: es
Just got the notice from Honda about the front bumper upgrade. Has anyone had this done, and, if so, did the dealer put the front bumper back together so that it looks the same as before the upgrade? I'd like to have this done, but I worry about the dealer removing the front bumper and then re-aattaching it so that all the seams fit as they should.
good, because imho, it wouldn't work anyway.
ground to middle of wheel arch as is in my driveway is 25 5/8". same angle with unmounted 185/65-15 general (mounted will get slightly taller) i don't care what the math says, in reality it is a much taller tire.
Got notification on the bumper and A-pillar recalls Saturday. Dealer says I am the first to call to have it fixed. Not sure how I feel about that. Don't want mine used as a training tool for new techs! They want half a day to do it.
Ive done plenty of reading on this, but need a little advice/help . . .
Had my fit since Nov 07. The Fit has about 120k on it and all has been good in the way of maintenance history. At some point a few months ago, I filled up at a local gas station and almost immediately started having the chugging/hesitating problem that many of you guys have describer in the EGR threads. The car idles a little (very little) rough and when under load (on a slope typically) and ...
There you go Eigenmeat! Compare and see how it goes.
I feel bad because I didn't hit 6000rpm by 40mph like you wanted. I was only showing how to accelerate the Fit quickly. Now.....6000rpm by 40mph is my goal. Brb..... :-)
"Question to all LX CVT owners:
Does your LX CVT accelerate any faster when put in "L" gear? This is true on the Nissan CVT I tried, and also to some degree on my 4-speed slush box Corolla.
My reasoning is that the "L" gear will try kept the CVT at the lower gear range as much as possible and thus helping the engine rev to the power band sooner.
It would be great for some LX CVT owner to post what they find!
Before anything else, I would like to give props to this forum. I have been here for a week and have been able to find
things very easy since you guys do a good job of keeping things organized.
A little background on the car, I picked it up last Sunday, May 12th and it's a 2010 Sport AT with pretty low miles for almost a 3 year old car. Overall in the week of ownership I have really enjoyed it and look forward to keeping it for awhile. This car is my daily and I normally ...
the front plate frame is a plastic piece held by 3 screw
two on the grill area
one in the middle of the bumper
so 99% it's been drilled thru
i just picked up a new fit yesterday and took off the bracket and went to lowes and bought a gromet plug
sorry about the horrible pic
going to get some white touch up paint to later
