Changed my spark plugs today, 1st set it's had in 13 years and 60,000 miles. Pretty sure it runs smoother, I was going to to the valve clearances at the same time but it started to rain.
Please update how they are, I'm interested in getting some for my fn2.Oh forgot I fitted Easy Eagle H7 LED's yesterday. Ones that were in I had for 2 years and bought of someone on here, and as I run with headlights all the time figured it was prudent to change to new ones. Not had a chance to see what they are like at night yet.

That pump works well enough. So far I've done my clutch and the brakes on my Dad's Mk5 Golf. The Golf needed almost 500ml+ drained from it but Honda decided in their wisdom to keep the clutch and brakes separate.Changed the clutch fluid using a cheap ebay vacuum pump. Worked quite well.

The car ok with 5w-30?Gave my car an oil and oil filter change. Used Castrol Edge 5w30 and a genuine Honda filter. Also had a quick clean up of the undertray service cover whilst it was off.
In the manual Honda quotes a large range of viable oils. I think the mk8 is shown to prefer 0w-20 but I don't think anything nearby that rating is going to break the car. I'll be doing 6 month changes for the foreseeable which should keep things sweet.Weirdly my 9th gen is very much quieter with 5w30 - and it IS a grade recommended by Honda - not the 1st recommendation but definitely approved where 0w20 is not available. since I have a 20l tub of 5w30 from a prev vehicle I'll def be using that till it is gone - and likely after that given the engine is quieter and seems smoother with it
Yep, Hondas own brand engine oil comes in either 5w30 or 0w30 so no issues.The car ok with 5w-30?
Seems to be an eternal debate of 5w-30 Vs 0w-30 Vs 0w-20. Mine did run better from a change to 0w-30 from 5w-30 but that is likely due to cheap oil and an age since it was last changed than the actual grade...
Do they literally just screw into the car in the place of ordinary halogen bulbs without any modifications?!Oh forgot I fitted Easy Eagle H7 LED's yesterday.
