    or a good pic of the backside would help too, so we can see the retention system.

    Mugen (無限) is a Honda exclusive performance company started by the son of the founder of Honda. Its akin to STI AMG or M except that Mugen is not owned by Honda.

    So I ended up getting one of these and although it basically is plug and play, the push start cylinder is a HUGE PITA to get out. The problem is that one of the tabs you need to push in to release the button is right up against a metal support bar. There is maybe a 1/4 inch gap, too small for anyone's fingers to fit. I had to take out the radio in order to get the proper angle to wedge a stick in there and release the tab.

    If anyone else is interested in this here is a quick install guide that I whipped up:
