Brilliant Idea! This is one of the reasons I love this forum! You get real OUT OF THE BOX IDEAS & Suggestions

Even I have spider in my car -- every morning I get into my car, I have to wipe off all the web and then drive! but i know the reason for that! I kept the window a little low when I parked it in the garage.

I know how to get rid of it too ! spray HIT ? naah! I am gonna pump up my music volume tomorrow [am driving to bangalore from Kottayam @ 2 PM ] with my Kenwood / JBL combo and it will fly off my car.

Clearly a case of bad QC. Should have not got past visual inspection.

On a lighter note, be thankful that Honda didn't charge you extra for the fly.

That should double the resale value of your car.!

Our old M800 too provided refuge to nasty critters that had the tendency to jump out on the occupants at the most inopportune moment. A cockroach once fell on my hands which were on steering wheel, while I was waiting at a traffic signal.Scared the hell out of me.

Do mention 'Customized Tail Lamp' in the papers when you plan on selling your car.

Ive found a rat inside my C200K bonnet once at night when my car refused to open.
I used the metal key(inside the black covering) and got the hood open and there there was this rodent running around. I could barely sleep that night. All I could imagine was the rat eating up the electrical connections.

This is hilarious. Poor fly. Honda sure knows how to go green.

On second thoughts, rename this thread as, "My car and bugs". And by bugs, i don't mean problems..

I remember seeing finger prints inside my Indigo's tail lights. When such things happen with a Tata one isn't really surprised, but with a Honda.. that too a fly..NOT ACCEPTABLE

Whoa, you can now name your car 'The BEAST' officially man! You should be glad to own the beast. And, keep this a secret so that Honda won't claim rights for it. I'm sure many here are jealous of your ride :P.

On a serious note, go sue Honda for giving you a non-veg car (just claim that you are a veggie).

Dear friend, forget complaining to honda, you should actually thank them since you have got the very first honda with their latest fly-by-wire technology installed. Please dont remove the fly, it could cause serious stability issues to your car, its been put there on purpose.
