The Yokos grip better, albeit the steering did seem a bit weighted relatively. Maybe I'll do another check on the alignment and give it a longer run on the highway before I make judgements.
The XM2 is definitely a better tyre than Earth 1. I have XM2 in my Brio (185/65/14), P3STs in both Punto and Tjet (heck I can be called a Michelin fanboy - have bought 7 sets of 4 Michelin tyres since 2006 for my cars). However, I went for Earth 1s for Jazz as the Yoko dealer gave me a great deal (2000 for a new set of 4 Earth 1s as compared to nearly 8000 for a new set of 4 XM2s - swapping the 10 day old GY Assurance ones). I have personally not driven the Jazz much but the folks who do tell me they are very happy with the upgrade.

Congrats on your upgrade. Definitely adds to the looks when looked at from the rear.

Unhappy Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

Hello jazzers
I have the second gen Jazz (2009) and my key fob has been giving trouble. The lock button isn't working but the unlock works just fine, even at a distance.The battery is also new. I've also been using a leather key cover off Alibaba for a long time, which has surely prevented dust and moisture from getting into the buttons. (WebLink follows-)

Has anyone had a similar issue, and solved it? Help needed!

One of the things that completely upset me about the Jazz was Honda's cheap-skating of the hatch cover. Really Honda? How much would it have cost you to give us a string to lift the damn cover when the hatch was raised?

So, I decided to fix this. Got some shoe lace kind of string. Drilled a hole in the hatch cover; stuck a nice, small hook on the hatch & eh voila, the hatch cover rises with the gate

Behold!:

Dont know why this comes up horizontal.

Where I drilled

Lessons learned:
- Honda might have not given the string not for budget reasons but for usage reasons. Everytime the hatch cover goes up, everything on it falls into the boot!
- I picked the wrong place to drill a hole in the cover. Should have been on the side. Were I drilled, there is only one sweet spot when there was no tension in the string when the hatch was closed while still being of a reasonable length to open the cover. Pick the side
- When I do the leather for the interiors, I will close the gap with a strip attached in velcro.

Completely agree. The 175 Tyres that Honda provides are complete rubbish and do not suit the character or the size of the car at all. I also junked the original Tyres and upgraded to Michelin primacy 3ST 195/60 as soon as I bought the car and they have been simply phenomenal. Worth every penny and feel just perfect for the Jazz
