I hear it will have a diesel engine soon too.

Any single car you can think of that would accomodate a high percentage of your requirements?
Outlander doesn't have low range. Forester had it, and it came close to a luxury car-sports car-suv rolled in to one package.

Hi GTO,
are you going to install a K&N on this one as well ?

GTO, did you decide on the mods for the rear suspension ?
Also, any plans to increase the rear seat cushion height (which is a Civic drawback) ?

Cheers,

For sure. Either K&N or BMC (strongly recommended to me by a friend from the industry).

Too early for that, Lancer_rit. Right now, I want to put some hard 5,000 kms on the car (previous owner never redlined it). Then, slowly and one by one, the mods start.

BTW, she's being ICE'd as I type.

Nope.

Congrats!

Car dealers will now start demanding a premium for used Civics with so many people from T-BHP asking for them ;-)

My car's still wearing them. I haven't found a good set of after-markets yet.

congratulations!
looking forward to the ice review. do also provide a cost break up if you're alright with that.

I have a few questions to ask you.
one,how did you verify the mileage?(i know there's a separate thread here,wanted to know what you looked at).
two,is autoterrace absolutely reliable?


the car I bought second hand suffered from power steering leakage,how did you check for such kind of failures,problems that do not occur immediately?
thanks!
just learning
