Past And Present Honda's We Have Owned

Well had the FN2 around a month now so I thought it was time to show a few pictures but have decided to show our past and present Honda's we have owned and will be honest we rated all 3 highly.

Cosmic EP3 with AC 2006-2009






CRZ Sport 2011-2011






Milano FN2 GT 2011 onwards

















I have done a few small cosmetic mods to the FN2 like LED bulbs all round and 6K HID lamps to match the side lights and LED ? DRL foglights now they have LED lamps then fitted footwell lights (front and rear + working with door and lights) and just the rear tints so young Lewis does not have problems with the sun etc other than that I don't think I will be doing anything more than you see apart from I fancy a Mugen oil cap, I hope you like the collection of Honda's we have owned and to be honest just a shame I don't have any more of the EP3 or CRZ than I have uploaded.

We have had Honda for the past 3 out of 4 cars and had an Auris T180 after the EP3 and will say even though not a bad car it was not great and in the end thanks to the DPF it cost as much to run as a Type R so did question why we got rid of the EP3 for an economical diesel that turned out far from, after that we got the CRZ and must say that they are very very under rated and if it had not been for the arrival of Lewis we would still have this but then again you seem to forget how good a Type R is when you have not had one for a long while and also how hard the ride is even though we are now getting used to that.

The CRZ is a great car and truth be known if it was 6" longer to accommodate Lewis we would still have this but unfornatlly when we slide the front seat forward for legroom in the back my wife was then very uncomfortable in the front.

very very easy as a neighbour worked at Honda as a mechanic for over 10 years until he was made redundant so he fitted them for me, wanted LED lights in the fogs so when I use them I cant get done as now they light up but don't really light the road so like I said these are now more DRL / make you more noticed by other cars but not dazzling drivers etc. I got the 6K HID lamps from MR JP to swap with the oem Honda HID lamps and also bought the LED side lights of ebay along with reversing lights, the interior LEDs including vanity mirrors and number plate LEDs are what I bought for the CRZ so just swapped them over. I have also fitted Osram night breaker lamps on the high beam and did have them in the fog lights until earlier today.
