I picked up my new car on Sunday and have been going about getting to know it and working out what needs doing. I've come from a Corolla T sport so I'm taking a fairly big step down on the performance front but I've got nice factory fit toys and five doors for the family which is a big plus for me.
So I got myself a 2006 1.8 Ex in Galaxy grey. It had a little over 56k on the clock and an immaculate service history at Honda until November last year when it had its last service. It hadn't been prepared when I went to see it and it needs little bit of love to get it looking it's best tbh. Interior is immaculate but a bit dusty etc. Outside I think it had suffered on the forecourt with a few scuffs along each side and a bit paint transfer. (Pics to follow) and the lacquer has gone on the wheels which is noticible during the day but almost invisible at night. They are the diamond cut 18" Altimo's. Other than this there were a few parking scuffs and the rear bumper but no other dents or marks and I didn't spot one stone chip. Although this is one of the best colours for that apparently.
So enough jabbering, what are the plans:
No mods on this so its all about getting her back to her best.
New HID bulbs (hopefully will sort a intermittent flicker when cold)
New cree LED sides
New Bosch Aero wiper kit
New cree LED number plate lights
New LED SMD boot lights (other interior lights I actually like the tone off)
New Genuine Velour Civic Mats and new mount plate.
3.90 Sat nav update *done*
Transcend Dashcam hardwire install
Full interior valet and shampoo inc full engine bay dressing ( next Tuesday and no steam clean)
Full exterior 2 stage machine polish and correction (8 hour session booked for Monday)
Grey to charcoal trim "dye"
Full major service (none dealer but for my own price of mind and for another stamp)*done*
900w slimline sub install
As you can see I've made a start and good progress expected next week. I've actually not taken a picture of the car yet which is appealing ha! But in the rest of this being a "gallery" I've got the below tasters
