I also have an FRV although mine is the 2005 2.0 Petrol one (150bhp).
Mpg and road tax are both horrific but the practicality and reliability is second to none.
My family prefer it to my 8th gen Accord.
If you want a later model like 2008/2009 with a petrol engine you will get the 1.8 iVtec...
Actually yes there is: be sure to leave the new buttons alone until step 5.
Step 1: Open the single screw to pop the transponder section off, this has the buttons in it.
Step 2: Then you pop the transponder section open with a coin (there is a notch on 1 corner). Here you will see the battery...
Just a quick one here.
My key fobs were looking old and tired because the buttons had worn down and i didn't like the look of them so had a look at ways of refreshing them.
This is what they looked like:
After a bit of digging and searching i found these buttons on ebay for approx £3...
I wrote a review on the Premier Tuning page on this forum. Have a read if you want the longer version
Short version is 110% satisfied and happy!!
Not really been long enough to check MPG properly but i have been pushing it harder all weekend to showcase the power and yet the mpg figures haven't...
Ah ok you are a trader. Well thats the only flat bottom I have seen, you might have the only one on this forum!
If I hadn't have bought a 2012 Type S already I would have had a serious think about it,
It looks like a nice example.
Good luck with the sale buddy.
I reckon it will be some time before the low emissions zones come into effect all over the uk. Even then it's probably only going to be city centres.
If you don't currently drive into London you should be fine for a while i imagine.
At that price, if the car is in good condition then its well...
Interesting you mention this as i have just been looking at the pictures of the white one currently on Autotrader and it has a FBSW too, never seen one before.
If thats the one you have purchased then its the only one i have seen, if not then thats 2 so might well be a factory option.
Drop him a PM and he will answer your questions including a quote. Im going to see him on Saturday to get mine done. :D
As for lights, there is a thread here for Full LED conversion, maybe that will help with light output...
There is a red 2009 Type S on autotrader, somewhere down south.
Price wise it looks to be a bargain, is it anybody's on here?
I don't know who the owner is or what the car is like, just thought it might be of interest to somebody.
Just an update. I did a motorway run and once the car was properly warm i checked the rear vents, they did blow hotter indeed. So thats that resolved.
Im still finding out little features of this car, like the auto-dipping left mirror when reversing. How cool!
Wondering if anyone has retrofitted a factory TMPS system? If so what is needed?
As far as i'm aware my car doesn't have a TPMS system fitted.
If i cant retrofit then i'll buy a wireless solar one online - about £20, anybody have experience with these on the accord?
