    The AA now doing air bag recall work!

    I had a letter through the post from Honda to have the airbag done on my 8th gen, gives a number to ring. I'd ring Honda if you haven't got details as I did before and got it booked in then COVID hit so it was cancelled. Really need to get it done

    New 2.4L Manual Tourer Owner - What a machine!

    Re the grille I purchased from the same place indirectly via eBay. Unfortunately a lot of aftermarket stuff made seems to come from Russia I was lucky to get my ducktail spoiler as they invaded day after I ordered and paid for it o_O:rolleyes:. I've seen them on AliExpress app but never looked...

    New 2.4L Manual Tourer Owner - What a machine!

    The display actually piggy backs the existing stereos wiring IE you unplug the stereo then plug in extensions which plug in to car harness and stereo whilst then feeding display. So I don't think there would be any massive issues with the difference in the unit using the internal amp on mine...

    New 2.4L Manual Tourer Owner - What a machine!

    Option 1 or 3 for me I opted to replace with aftermarket. Recently fitted the screen you linked to, be prepared for this if you're fitting yourself; There's a lot of wiring to hide, I've found mine to work well (but still need to connect the rear view camera). Instructions arent the best as...

    Windscreen trims

    Ended up buying used items got a pair (from a facelifted car so they are the same for all 8th gen) As I needed to fit a spoiler I just bit the bullet and refitted myself a tube of tiger seal did the job and was pretty easy to do without any mess. I've got a spare passenger side trim in black if...

    Windscreen trims

    I might try this as I still need to rebook for the airbag recall, was cancelled due to COVID so might see what they say if I mention it

    Windscreen trims

    Sorry mine is a 2008 but I don't think they would change unless possibly for the facelift. Bit more than expected but by the codes look like they come painted so there is that. Annoyingly mine wasn't lifting before deciding to part ways in the A1 fast lane but the winds were bad enough to leave...

    Windscreen trims

    Hi recently lost my driver's side trim in the weekends winds, couple of quick questions anyone know a part number as eBay breakers aren't proving successful at the moment? Also I only have the lower clip still attached to the car but can see there should be a couple more that parted company...

    Will Honda Main Dealers Fit Customers Parts?

    Personally I would only use a dealer if I had to ie for warranty etc. I'd much rather use an independent who in my experience are just as experienced and should appreciate the business and charge a lot less.

    What mods can I put on?

    I'm sure others can do it but I would speak to @F6HAD as he did mine so would recommend his services and advice on it he definitely put my mind and rest

    What mods can I put on?

    As someone who has had it done can tell you I've passed the last 2/3 without issues and my mot man is strict (the way I like it). Definitely something I would do again without thought

    What mods can I put on?

    Egr/dpf delete and stage 1 remap would be my 1st point of call. Re induction kit and intercooler I've read the standard items are pretty efficient designs so you would have minimal performance gains. Cosmetic mods there are various body kits available, modulo and Mugen are hard to source...

    Petrol Vs diesel

    For those that don't know I currently have a 2.2 diesel 8th gen. I live in Manchester where the powers that be are bringing in an Ultra low emissions zone or new tax as I see it. Not here for a discussion on that but will mean a daily charge if I keep the accord. Just lately I've been looking...

    Can I play music files from my android phone through the audio system?

    I currently use a phone holder that clips into the CD slot. You would need to as you say select aux on the stereo but would need to select the music on your phone. Basically it works like Bluetooth headphones ie the stereo just mutes phone and amplifies the audio the phone is playing. I use...

    DRL

    Or split your headlights and fit some drls inside them like I did on my 8th gen. Wiring was simple can get voltage sensing box of tricks that attaches directly to the battery (fused obviously) turns them on or off automatically.

    2012 Euro Accord CW2, 215/55 r17 98V anyone??

    If they have the same rolling radius as the original stype wheels that your car was designed to run with you shouldn't have any issues. It's not like your changing any sizes massively.

    Led Headlights.

    Good to know, when replacing my headlights I fitted new halogens but only because I was worried about the legislation which was led bulbs where illegal in halogen at the time but I believe this has been changed and updated recently. The halogen colour definitely spoils the look of the lights so...
