Just wondered what mileage other folks CTRs have done.
Want to try and get a feel if mine's high or average.
Also wondering if everyone elses servicing is done religiously as per Honda's schedule.

Mines 4 years old and has done 66.5k.
Had last service 3k ago by Arnold Clarke Nissan before I picked it up.
The more I read about Valve Clearnance Checks the more I suspect this hasn't been done. Am wondering if it can wait until 75k, or if I should pony up the £93 Grangemouth Honda want for doing it now.
Also thought I might wait 3k more and perhaps have it done then along with engine and gearbox oil change.

Mine is also 4 years old and is at 40k, although only 7k with me in the last year. It is going in for a full service this Friday with Honda as it will be the first time since I have had it and I want to make sure it is done well. I will be supplying the oil and filter though.

Damn, mine's been about and back it seems.
On the up side, I do less that 12k year so the mileage shouldn't rack up as quickly as it did with the previous owner.

I've been wondering if I could buy the oil and filter and get the garage to use those parts. I take it a Honda dealer will have no issues doing that?
Even thought of buying the complete major service kit from Cox and handing that over to them. lol

Mine is an 07 plate and is on 37k was on 34k when I bought it in November.
Will be having mine serviced at TDI, Honda should not have a problem with servicing it using your parts, but check first.

58 plate, just turned 40k the other day. I wouldn't worry about miles.

My EP3 drove exactly the same with 63k on the clock as it did when it had 40k

Mines a 57 plate with 33,000.

My friend has an EP3 (same engine) and it has 93,000 on the clock as he drives a fair few miles everyday and its never had a problem in the 5 years he has had it. its still on the original clutch!

It still clings on the back on back of mine, so i wouldnt about it.

Its one of the major factors i chose to get a Type R - mechanically they are sound.
