    Hello I was trying to install Megan Racing front lower tie bar and H brace with my friend at his shop. We got the H brace installed with under tray cover staying. We just cut holes where the bolt is. But when we were trying to install the front lower tie, we were running into issues. It looks...

    So my AC compressor pulley broke and it's partially seized the belt at 66k on my r18 which I found early. I thought this thing start showing failures at 100k. Now I am wrong and need a lesson learned. As a preventative maintenance, how often do we check the belt and those pulleys? How often do...

    You are welcome. I swap the rear with all parts at the same time to avoid problem. Because my friend says mine is a r18. If I try to use some parts from r18 with Si, it may not work well at the end. So I ordered all parts together then did a whole swap for worry free. Yes lucky the problem is...

    I forgot the parts # information. I got all the oem parts (rear sway bar, end link bracket and brusher ) from Honda parts website all at the same time and dropped it to shop for installation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ok. So it’s confirmed by my friends mechanics shop. The AC compressor pulley is burnt and the belt is shot. The belt has a bit damage underneath. So I need a new belt and new AC compressor. I can’t believe they die that early. My car just reaches 66k miles. It’s probably a daily driven car...

    I will have to look at it in the morning time. I was night time and dark. My flash light can’t see it well. I thought about going to mechanics tomorrow. Do you think I can make it off to my trustable mechanic about 8 miles away? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello everyone How are you doing? So today my civic was not lucky. I was driving normal as usual. After driving local streets for a while, I heard some clunking noise from the engine. So I pulled over and did some sound and visual diagnostics. I could hear the sound from pulley is “kinda”...

    @ElDiabloBlanco @Verzerrung I confirm that this DWS 06 is engineered so well and it’s quite equivalent to Michelin AS3+. My friend had AS3+ on his R18 and I know how well it does on his r18. I did a full test drive on local streets and expressway with curve and straight line last night. This...

    I was thinking about Michelin 3+, but it’s expensive and Continental has $70 prepaid visa promotion. And I’ve been due for front set replacement. So I was like, “let’s roll”. Haha [emoji38] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you. I feel my car is reborn. My old version Continental DWS was good. Bridgestone was noisy. The response is equivalent. But Bridgestone is bad on snow. I’m keeping 215/45r17. So when I buy another rim, I’m keeping on 17”, probably 17x8. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Great information. I don’t mind using aftermarket. But does aftermarket the glass protect the same way as oem when a collision happen? Another question. Someone just told me Geico full coverage covers glass damage. Do you happen to know? How can I claim it through insurance? Thanks again...

    It’s the rear door, not the triangle one. Will I need oem glass? Will local glass shop use aftermarket or oem glass most likely? How can I tell the difference between? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Long weekends is over. No more holidays until February. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] I want to add a real side skirt extension instead of using eBay easy lip. Does anyone know what the exact length is? 75 or 78? I may go with a custom side skirt splitter. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using...

    Hello everyone How are you all doing? I got an very annoyed issue. I got 2 new tires installed this winter time (01/19). Last 2 weeks, the “check tire pressure” alert all of a sudden pop up. I found one of the tire is the root cause. When I check the pressure with a tool, the psi is low. But...
