Really great car. Nice engine. Frugal when you want it to be and performance when you need it. The I-shift is worth updating with the latest software if it hasn't been done already. Auto mode is great for a relaxed laid back drive. Manual mode is great for an involving fun drive.

Couldn't have summed up better myself.

What does the software upgrade do? 30.00 sounds reasonable if it makes a big difference?

Wouldn't say it's a massive difference but if you haven't got the latest then I'd go for it. Was an improvement over the version I previously had, which was likely the original software.

When I first called was quoted 60, but after some discussion; one arm have to always use auto and it's down-right dangerous, they agreed 30. So hide an arm inside a jacket and play on it - lol

Local Honda dealers want 60 to update but will do for free on a service.

Never use Honda for servicing and bought private. 60 is taking the piss but didn't think 30 was too bad, and worth it for the improvement.
