Got £250 credit from Honda today after complaining about the price of body part which has shot up in price.

That has gone towards the clutch change which is really good timing as that's a fair whack of change i could use right about now.

Front upper bumper section, ive been told this car is now out of production for body parts and as such a 2.5x increase in all body parts is normal.

price show up from 3 weeks ago from my written quote from a honda main dealer for a replacement section.

Same here. Whilst they open initially much better than the originals, they seem to stick, opening the final 20% of the tailgate. Doesn’t happen in hot weather.

yes mine stick and don't fully open the tailgate, mine stuck yesterday when it was hot, if you open it by pushing it up it then un-sticks and opens every time but i shouldn't have to keep pumping the struts to get it to open all the time, luckily they are only about 20 miles away from were i live, so i might pop down and get them to look at it

If you get them to check it out, let me know what they say. Perhaps a dodgy batch?

Cars back, amazed what a different beast it is!

Got the old clutch disk and pressure plate , they’re toast. Not down to rivets but starting to delaminate in places.

Nice job.

I'm not a fan of silver interior parts. If I had a choice everything would be matt black.

I was stuck thinking what to do because i never liked the look of it and the silver paint is so thinly coated and then saw tricky’s post and thought that definitely looks better, more o e m than honda’s attempt
