Oh yes it is. I feel your pain!

With aftermarket brake pads, it gets even worse. My Tanabe pads are much dustier than the OEM Honda/Nissin ones, and so my white wheels are now a bigger headache to clean.

I played around with the air shocks I recently installed. It looks like 25 to 30 PSI is all the pressure needed to firm up the rear end to counter under steer.... The front tires are hooking up very well, no more embarrassing wheel spin when pulling out into moving traffic.

Installed my new to me 3 Drive throttle controller. Boy do I wish I had got one of these sooner! It makes all the other mods come to life so to speak. It may not make more power but it sure as hell makes the Fit feel faster. And I don't think I could deal with SP7 in trafic, just too sensitive, SP6 suits me just fine. And I will probably get better gas mileage because the extra sensitive throttle allows me to cruise at lower speeds in higher gears. Good stuff!

I took a drive to Revere last night to try and pick up another set of rims and tires, turned out he was a ricer who wrecked his Civic, and really messed-up a set of Sport rims. More details in the New England Community board.

Ninja edit. Did not buy said rims.

Up next will be mugen window visors and the red dotted fit emblem. I also put my white buddy club wheels up for sale locally and got an offer for some c10s.. probably going to pass on rotas though.

I looked at my tires, said to myself, "Hey, my wheels dont look shiny..;_;" so I went and put on some tire shine. With only the tires being shiny, I decided after almost a yr of not cleaning my fit, I went ahead and gave it the white glove treatment.

Two washes with turtle wax, claybar the entire surface of the car with mother's claybar and surface detailer, and then a coat of wax. It looks absolutely spectacular, and the fact you can run your hand around the body of the car and it feeling smooth is the most amazing feeling...apart from driving it of course =)

Washed it

This weekend, gas, wash, and finally vacuumed the pine needles out of it (we can transport our Christmas trees comfortably inside).

Today, went to a local high-end used car dealer recommended by a friend to have my right front fender and bumper cover looked at to get it repaired and repainted. Back in February a baby boomer in a BMW 3 series cut from his lane into mine at a 45 degree angle to make a u-turn without looking. I slammed on the brakes. The damage is minor, and could've been a lot worse. Now it's time to finally get it fixed, and back to looking good.

If this repair goes well, I'll let everyone know where.

Oh, and I really want those white Mugen XJ's. Mmmmmmmmm

I took the Fit in for its yearly inspection - thank you state of WV! Also since I have over 16,000 miles they are doing the 15,000 mile check up. Honda just called to ask if I wanted the cabin filter replaced - told them yes - will have to see how much they cost and do it myself the next time. Ordered another hood liner and clips x2 to repalce the liner on the OEM hood and put one on the CF hood. Also ordered the rubber piece because the guys tore it up trying to get the clips out! Ouch! Darn Honda Fit clips! Will get both hoods fixed up and then it will make swaping them out much easier in the winter and fall.

Cat :x

PS Honda just called - the guys that did my new rims - put too much air in my tires - that is why I was having some steering issues! Thanks! Then since they had the car even though I've never received my recall notice - they fixed the power switch - without me asking plus they checked the balance on the tires since the guys who put them on are not uses to working on a Honda - they were out of balance- crap! I thought it was just me but told them the car was handling differently! Lester Raines Honda - they go above and beyond!!!!
