Wired in a Nissan Navara auto dimming mirror, used the option connector terminal with ignition on for live and a nearby bolt for the earth, followed one of the dashcam hardwire posts for wire run but managed to thread the wire behind the airbag without removing the A post cover. :)
Remember to drop the centre rear head rest for it to actually work. With it up it wont catch a headlight from the rear to work properly.

Upgrade or Downgraded, who knows, basically removed my troublesome power folding mirrors and fitted the non power folding ones.
I couldn't be asked with the mirrors sitting at weird angles and not locking in to place.
The plugs are the same and they are totally compatible if anyone wanted to change to the manual mirrors.

did you not try replacing the SOD's
Nah I didn't bother with replacing the SOD. Even with the SOD removed the mirrors click in at the wrong angles, seems like a physical/mechanical issue.
The replacement mirror was £50 posted vs £100-150 for a power folder so feel like I am just avoiding a future issues with switching to the manual ones.
I'm happy to strip the power folder and see if it repairable and then sale them.

Been in contact with a really good mapper who was keen to see if he could do anything for the iShift civic. This is with potentially fully working cruise control, reverse lock etc.

Send them a spare ECU that was for the iShift (its different to the manual one) and the its been successfully programmed with the Immobiliser off with a basic map for intake and exhaust.

Just waiting for it to come back so i can plug it in to see if its drivable or if it just freaks out. If it works, then in the new year my car will be the official test rig for a truly plug and play iShift map for the 1.8.

Had some brake squeaking noise this week, so took all 4 wheels off only to find two calipers had seized sliders due to torn rubber boots. Freed the sliders off and greased everything up. Pads had loads of life, so although I had bought new pads all round I didn't bother to fit them.

Ordered a set of new rubber boots all round, but at least the sliders are free for now. Hopefully the weather will be good enough over Christmas to get the new boots on.

After finding my spare wheel well soaking I tried to fix the leak. Hopefully its sorted. There was water coming in the seal on one if the smaller light units on the tailgate.

Have a little leak in mine as well. Where exactly was yours?

Hi, it was the driver side smaller light unit on the tailgate. I stripped all the plastic and tipped water all over and all the back of that one light was dripping wet. Luckily I had a spare unit so I fitted that.

Took delivery of my new crash bar after trying to fit the pattern part to find none of the bolt holes line up!

Genuine honda one sourced and prepared to fit after winter to hopefully stop bumper sagging as current one is deformed due to i believe previous owner having a little smash on the front end.

Fitted new mapped ECU and car doesn't start. Possible number of reasons. Prime candidates being ishift TCM hasn't been correctly linked to new ECU as new ECU having different VIN number encoded on it. Or map has overwritten ishift data with manual data so TCM won't even engage and allow car to start.

I made 5 of them, 3 polished and 2 not. That's what I could make out of the alli bar I had. I've had a couple of people ask the same. Just not sure on a price. I've thought about making them before to sell as well. What would you say is a fair price?
