Thought I'd go out for a drive and see how the torque app is a recording 0-60 times, not sure how accurate it is but this is a GPS 0-60, not to bad. Bang on what honda quote I think.

Don’t like washing in this strange sunny weather but attracted a lot of attention from the locals when I had a week away. A lot of attention. It was like they used me as practice for their own D-Day target preparation. Even a jet wash on way home (no brush used) didn’t remove it all.

Best wash it off ASAP! You don't want it burning through the laquer.

Stripped all the suspension off, you know when garages say they have checked suspension etc, yeah really. Removed both fronts and the arrows on top mounts not in correct orientation, these have been removed and refitted correctly with arrows in correct position.
Removed rear springs to swap around to see if the rear drivers side is knackered. Idiot here put the springs together to see if they looked the same and forgot which one was removed from which side, couldn’t believe it, what a idiot🤬. Been put back on and will leave over the weekend and see how they settle.

Found out my aircon isn't working....the sat nav dvd isn't reading and for some reason the rear drivers side is sitting much lower than the other side. Was all fine when I parked up yesterday :( The fuse is fine in the aircon and it's only recently been recharged. Guess it's the relay (again) or the clutch shim space as it's not engaging. Might be time for the double din. No idea on the rear, the spring isn't broken and the shocks are only a year old.

when I got mobile guy to do mine I showed him how it should go together before he took it away, he was alright about it as i explained how it can be c0cked up by even the best.

@Hemingway1975 have you tried squirting WD40 down the top mount at all? I had a creaking a couple of months back and that solved the issue for me, has not returned.
I actually soaked the rear upper and lower rubber mountings with a k release which is on a par if not better than wd40, it’s excellent stuff. They looked very weathered so soaked them in the stuff to give them a little life again. I didn’t give the top rubbers on the rear shocks though , think I will tomorrow, cheers for the heads up👍

Well I was told they had been removed and checked, obviously not. I just wondering if I have damage the top mounts not having them the correct way?
