    2012 car but no DRL's and no "coming home/leaving home" lights

    I suppose so, i was just querying it as other manufacturers have put these features on basic spec cars so wondered if i was missing something.

    2012 car but no DRL's and no "coming home/leaving home" lights

    Im really surprised that the 2012 Accord Type S doesn't have these 2 features. Is there an option/switch that i haven't turned on somewhere or Is it just something that Honda never did in 2012?

    FRV advice.

    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...

    DIY Key Fob Refresh (new buttons)

    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...

    DIY Key Fob Refresh (new buttons)

    All, 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...

    Type S - ADAS Flat Bottom steering Wheel

    Hahaha 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.

    Low priced 8th Gen Type S on autotrader

    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...

    Type S - ADAS Flat Bottom steering Wheel

    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. I think...

    Low priced 8th Gen Type S on autotrader

    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.

    Rear vents - cold or hot?

    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!

    Possible to Retrofit TPMS system?

    Yeah it would be awesome if we could activate it since no hardware is required. Oh well, i guess i will just have to buy one of those ebay sets, they seem to get decent reviews anyway.

    Possible to Retrofit TPMS system?

    Hi all, 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?
