  1. Headlight plastic yellow - recommendations repair replace

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    The kit I suggested comes with your low and high beams. Civics use the high beams at a lower wattage to run as DRL lights. The only problem you could run into with them as DRLs is they may flicker but I have this set in my Civic right now and have no flicker at all. As for performance LEDs work...
  2. Headlight plastic yellow - recommendations repair replace

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I’ve used the headlight restoration kits on almost every car I’ve ever owned and they work fantastic. My recommendation would be to buy the meguires kit which comes with a drill insert buffer and then buys some led headlights off of amazon. Total it will cost you what you might spend on some...
  3. Malfunction Oil life indicator

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Unfortunately that can be misleading. In my Honda Pilot I run full synthetic and my oil life indicator will actually go 10000 miles or so before getting down to about 10%.
  4. Malfunction Oil life indicator

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Because you reset it. It’s not going to know you did or didn’t change the oil. It’s basically a stop watch. As soon as you reset it, it starts back over. There is no way for the car to determine that you lied to it. If you were to change your oil and not reset it, it would work the same way in...
  5. Black Si with white microscratches

    Detailing
    Yeah I called them yesterday to ask about the paint and to see if the airbag had been taken care of but they told me there was no warranty on the hood anymore. It expired in 2015
  6. Car is "vibrating" from around 2600 to 3100 RPM

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I had a similar problem on my integra years ago. Turned out to be a heat sheild rubbing my exhaust. It only made the noise at certain rpms.
  7. Black Si with white microscratches

    Detailing
    Damn that’s exactly what it looks like. Welp guess it’s time for a carbon fiber hood. Do you think it’s only on the hood because of the heat?
  8. 08 Si Security

    I.C.E., Electrical, Security, & Navigation
    Its not really an expectation more then just curiosity. This is only my second car to come with a factory navigation and I wasn’t worried about anybody messing with my last car. The whole thought that I need to check it’s functionality is after I was followed home by some sketchy looking...
  9. 08 Si Security

    I.C.E., Electrical, Security, & Navigation
    Yeah I guess I will have to try it again. But if it goes off the latch then I'm pretty sure it isn't working the way they intended.

    Yeah it only happened that one time so far. I’ll keep monitoring it just in case it happens again. Maybe i can find a pattern.

    Awesome thank you.
  12. Leather insert Handbrake Lever

    Inside and Out
    Now that you’ve had this for a while have you had any issues with it sliding off or wearing out? I assume you won’t use it as often as you would if it were a manual but just curious about longevity.
  13. 08 Si Security

    I.C.E., Electrical, Security, & Navigation
    Quick question about my recently purchased Civic. When I lock my car and get the lovely little “beep” from the horn I am assuming the security system has engaged. My question is how can I test this to make sure it’s actually working. I’ve tried rocking the car and opening the door but I can’t...
  14. LED light suggestions

    Lighting, H.I.D.'s, & Neon
    Hey so I am looking into replacing my headlights with LEDs and was hoping for some suggestions with great brightness/longevity. I have an 07 Pilot with sea light leds that I love but have only had them for a few months now so I can’t really say much to the longevity of them.
  15. Black Si with white microscratches

    Detailing
    Hey so I have a 08 Si I picked up a few weeks ago and the car is in amazing condition aside from the fact that there are these white microscratches in the hood that look they were from a brush of some sort. They are only in the clear coat as far as I can tell but they are bugging me. I have a...

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    So this morning when I was about to leave for work I got in my car and when I turned the key it made the same sound you would hear if the car was already started but it didn’t turn on. I retried and it started right up. Car is a 2008 Si with 60xxx.
  17. CLEARING HEADLIGHTS (WITH PICS)

    DIY Honda Civic Lighting
    I’ve done something similar in the past to my integras running lights and after baking them the reflecting housing had a rainbow effect. Has anybody else had this problem and how do I avoid it?
  18. DIY: LED install on interior lights, trunk, and license plate (23 pix)

    DIY Honda Civic Lighting
    So I’ve replaced the reverse lights in my crv and my pilot with leds before and they always look super bright when you look at them in comparison to the standard oem bulbs. But whenever I’m in the car and I go to back up i can barely tell they are on. I’m not sure what to do st this point. I’ve...
  19. 2006 Civic Rear Speaker Install Guide

    DIY Honda Civic Audio
    So I’m not trying to replace my speakers currently but I do have a question. I have an 08 Si and it has Polk audio rear speakers. I haven’t looked at the fronts but is this factory or have these been replaced. The plug doesn’t look like it’s been messed with or anything.
  20. First FA5 Not First Honda

    Introduction & Pictures
    Yes I have a lot planned for it. It currently has a Invidia N1 catback exhaust and I plan on getting a turbo kit for it. I also want to put newer suspension on it with a slight lower. I’d like to possibly swap the front end with a 09-11 if I come across one that’s color matched and then get a...
