  1. Huge oil leakage.

    Gotta agree with the oil analysis recommendation. Blackstone is who you want to use, they will send you a free collection kit and then do the analysis for like 30 dollars. Even if you can't get the dealer to pay for it, do it for the next 3 changes. Well worth the money.
  2. Huge oil leakage.

    To summarize, get Honda Roadside to take it to the dealer. Get them to document what happened. Don't bother troubleshooting it more yourself. Honda did the work, Honda warranties the car. If it was just a plug or filter then you want it documented with the dealer that they caused the problem and...
  3. Car wash foam gun or cannon recommendations

    I got the MATCC for the garden hose off Amazon. I was exceptionally happy with it. Did two cars this past weekend and my dog. Best, quickest, easiest bath for a long hair dog I've ever done. Wow! So great as getting the shanpoo through the fur and down to the skin and for washing it out.
  4. Seatbelt torque specs

    Thanks. Sorry to re-iterate, but for the track with a HANS device these are good? Just not w/o a helmet and HANS device right?
  5. Seatbelt torque specs

    Are you referring to the Ballade or the Cipher? Or both? To clarify, these are safe only with a HANS and helmet or not at all or...?
  6. What did you do to your Type R today?

    2 or 3? 3 or 2? Hmm, well, are you going to go full in on Hot Wheels? Tempting idea... I say no to #1, and I think the Hot Wheels idea looks pretty cool with your Red. So yea, #3 :)
  7. FS: Enkei NT03RR 18x9.5 +45 5x120 w/ Michelin PS4S 265/35

    If you change your mind and are willing to ship, let me know.
  8. Sold the R and bought an American muscle car

    Enjoy your new car. My wife has a Model 3 Long Range. And in general your comparisons are pretty much the same I have. In short, though the M3 is fast, it really isn't a performance car, even the performance model. It's a near luxury sedan (wannabe) and is great for an urban commute and even...
  9. Excessive Rear Pad Wear

    You're quote was pretty short to know the context. Care to point me to the page number? Thanks!
  10. Excessive Rear Pad Wear

    I'm pretty sure @kefi 's first statement was correct. It's one reason to turn VSA fully off if you track. The car will activate the rear brakes during spirited turns. But, that said, unless you have changed how you drive since your first pad replacement, then you should get consistent wear.
  11. Tire change Fail.

    I take pictures of each wheel as the service advisor is coming out to the car. Everytime. I also leave a note taped to the infotainment remaindering everyone that the dash cam is running and location is being tracked. That's regardless of if it is with the dealer or Discount Tire. Makes me feel...
  12. Fuel Pump Recall

    2 most common reasons; #1, as @ManEatingPenguin says. or, #2, a quick lesson regarding manufacturing engineering and procurement. Typically, a part number just means that two parts with the same number are interchangeable with each other (meaning fit form and function). It doesn't actually mean...
  13. Why would the same horns installed on 2 different cars sound different ?

    Are the vehicles sending the same voltage and amps? Any frequency or amplitude modulation being sent by the vehicle? (I doubt it.) but in short, I would not have expected them to sound identical, given all the variables already mentioned by others.
  14. CTR engine oil capacity and the poorly designed dipstick

    I was hoping someone would post a real solution to the crappy OEM dipstick. The thing is horrible. Well, if anyone comes up with a good solution, please let us know.
  15. What did you do to your Type R today?

    Ah, but the challenge!
  16. What did you do to your Type R today?

    Or just accelerate? :)
  17. What did you do to your Type R today?

    Thanks, much nicer looking than I anticipated.
  18. 1400$ buget

    Looks like you are on the right track. This is the source I use for looking at power gains;
  19. When was the last time you saw another Civic Type R on the road...?

    Other than car shows or Type R events? One ever, and that might not count since it was coming out of the service bay at the local dealer.
  20. What did you do to your Type R today?

    I just drop my phone in the cup holder. But would appreciate a picture of your setup.
