# MOD 3 - rear diffusor install

One month passed and I bought the rear Diffusor from Honda which I fitted instantly :ROFLMAO:

The supplied shop manual with this is spot on! Just be aware that you take your time with drilling the holes and get a mate to assist you with that.
I really like the OEM parts they supply us with besides the heavy price. #shameonhonda

you are right Rob! Just a smaller bracket! I havent found something suitable to cover these ugly holes in the black grille! :(
The only option I see would be to get to a body shop let them cover the hole, repaint it and work with magnets for the license plate.
I just went with the smaller bracket and it looks real good already :)

# MOD 5 - Changing Interior & license plate lighting to LED

When I bought this car I was unsure what Honda thought of the Idea to go with normal light bulbs fpr interior/license plate on the executive trim.
Everything is LED besides that and the turn signals/reverse...

So I bought some Osrams and fitted them today!
Picture of the license plate bulbs will be uploaded in the evening when it is dark.

# MOD 6 - New Wheels ♥

In Germany there is a old saying for when to change tires/wheels... We say put on summer tires when the month has no "R" in it.

I would say this was one of the hardest decisions to choose some good looking wheels which are also lightweight.
The petrol variant of the tourer is lacking torque so the goal was to achieve the best combo and to pass MOT (german law is awful for every car enthusiast)

So here we go with the following:

Wheels: Motec Ultralight (MCR2) 8x18 Offset 50 in flat copper
Tires: Hankook Ventus S1 Evo2 225/40/18

312685

312686


Before fitting them I went for a glas ceramic coating which was worth it

Next update will be biig so stay tuned!

For those, like me, who were waiting to read how light they are, here is what I have found: 8.7 kg for 18x8 dimension.

Also, I was expecting to see at least one photo of those wheels on the car, not just in the car :)
thank you! forgot to mention the most important fact up there :D
The complete wheel with Tire was 18.2kg
