  1. Who makes remote starters for our car?

    I.C.E., Electrical, Security, & Navigation
    Which brand makes the best remote starter for the 8th civic SI? I only know of Viper and Compustar as good remote starter companies. I know you need a bypass, are there a few choices in that too?
  2. Do you think Backfire is more prevailant in Single or multiple exhausts?

    Garage
    Question Ive been thinking about lately for some reason, unrelated to my Honda. Most times I see backfire in cars is usually out of a dual exhaust setup but this could just mean most modified cars that are capable of backfire like dual exhausts. However I would guess a single exhaust with more...
  3. Coolant Gel or oil in coolant??

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    that sounds good if I was sure if it was coolant gelling. If the headgasket has leaked then I hear you shouldnt drive at all until its replaced? once I drain the coolant would it be simple to find out if the coolant has oil in it? Like I would see black in it

    Did a google search and found nothing.. I am looking to get my mom a new car. I am between a Lexus RX350 or Porsche Macan but she lives in a smallish city. I figure you can take a Lexus to Toyota no problem but can you take a Porsche to Audi? Also, if anyone with experience with both SUVs want...

  10. Oktire gave me one different tire

    Wheel And Tire Upgrades
    I had a flat a week ago and brought it to OKTire. They fixed it and then yesterday the same tire went flat. I brought it back and they said they ripped too many cords? Or something when they fixed it and gave me a new or newish tire, a Goodyear Eagle Talon. Is it ok to have one weird tire? Is...
  11. Where can I buy a block heater online?

    Thanks for that link. They only ship with UPS that sucks to ship to Canada, but that gave me the part number I needed.
  12. Where can I buy a block heater online?

    Civic Si
    I'm looking on Google and cannot find a block heater for the SI. I also need to ship to Canada. Do they not make one for the SI?? Here it shows the regular block heater and it specifies not for SI (www.)hondapartworld.com/1013_08T44-SNA-101
  13. Would like warranty information

    Dealership Experience
    If I buy a 2014 used HondaI from a private party does the warranty move over? Does the warranty change at all? Also, even if I bought a new Honda from the dealership, I live 4 hours away from the nearest dealership. If I had any problem that should be covered by warranty, do I have to go to a...
  14. Does my Canadian 08 civic si come with block heater?

    Civic Si
    After a few days I figured this question was long gone. Thanks for the answer. I lived near Toronto for a season last year. I've always used synthetic oil and my SI started beautifully every time. I actually jump started many trucks in the parking lot lol.
  15. Does my Canadian 08 civic si come with block heater?

    I bought my car in Vancouver and due to work moved to a town with -50 celcius winters that last almost half the year. Although my car started perfectly in -35 celcius before windchill winters of Ontario, it was slow to start and felt bad for it. I was looking to buy a block heater however I read...
