The Type R front bumper is actually fabricated in Japan. The FK8 stopped being assembled in UK in 2020 (or reduced, with Japan picking up some of the assembly).
That's directly from Honda Japan, in September when my dealership stepped in to help after a month of kicking dirt.
How much of it is...
That's what I thought, apparently MD is different than the rest of the US for insurance stuff. I grew up in NY so very weird to me. Since they paid for repairs, they have fulfilled their requirements... Even though the car isn't fixed!
I'm surprised by the immaturity of some, then again after the last 4 years...:rolleyes: I don't need to justify myself, but I put in 15+ hours a day, 6 days a week for 10 years when I opened my manufacturing business. Cost me my social life and my marriage.
Now back on topic.
As for everyone...
Zero ETA for 6 months with countless inquiries. Same with official retailers that carry real Honda parts. It's always 'its on national back order'.
I agree for the insurance, even though they were told by me + the garage that the car is NOT fixed, due to missing parts.
I have 2 other cars to get around, which is fine (even though their's nowhere to go with covid). What's frustrating is having a car that's relatively new, and the whole front is damaged and after 6 month still isn't fixed.
Her insurance paid out for full repairs (replacement of anything...
I'm not a lawyer, but in the US there's a federal law that covers the provenance of parts for 10 years from the date of purchase of a new vehicle. Failure to provide those parts for repairs, compensation is due (often the dealership buys the car back). Personally... i just want my car fixed...
To answer a few questions:
What have I been driving, 2016 Huracan when the weather was nice, 2020 GLC when the weather sucks. I'm mobile, during immobile times, but doesn't change the fact my car is in the garage gathering dust for 6 months. It sucks.
Both insurance basically told me, tough...
Throw out the garbage continentals and put quality rubber. Boom, all grip issues fixed.
245/30ZR-20 MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4S are my go too, i run them on the track and road. Car has a lot more HP than stock, no issues (don't run them when it's cold!!!).
Rental time has been used up ages ago. The car is drivable after some repairs, but no front bumper so i don't drive it. Not only does it look stupid, it's begging to have components damaged.
Her insurance pretty much paid what ever my insurance asked for (which is what the garage asked for full...
About 6 (yes SIX!) months ago, someone hit my 2019 Type R. She basically ignored all traffic signals, ignore me, other cars, and just proceeded in driving right into me (then crying about it... real genius driver there!). Little to say, cops were not impressed with her. Insurance took care of...
Yes. The third time it went in they did a engine harness replacement. Turns out something wasn't plugged back properly. Which triggered the code again (and lingered around even though the warning light went away).
Fixed. One of the connectors wasn't seated properly and apparently the code was also lingering around.
After they flushed the code, 5 test drives over the course of 2 days and all fine. Just drove it for 2 days and all fine.
