  1. Hi guys, Spotted these, all from the same seller but collection only from Leicester: Keen price on some, I'd probably be tempted if I lived closer!

    Interesting! I wonder if the twin fog lights potentially being mistaken for brake lights is a hangover from when before high level brakelights were common? I always thought two lights are safer as it's easier to judge the distance of a car! (One reason why so many people pull out on motorbikes at junctions). Just had a look on the lighting regulations and cant have anymore than two so should be good! (https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1989/1796/schedule/11/made)

    @dr_broonAh yes forgotten yours is being refurbed! got any more news on it at all? @Dave You were right mate, it is a plug for a tow bar. Finally got round to wiring it all up so now I've got nice symmetric fog lights! Always bugged me the car only had one. Surely shouldn't have cost Honda much more to make it with the two from factory in the first place. Excuse the pic of the dirty car!

    @Dave many thanks for that! Hoping to check the plug tonight with a multimeter as it was tipping it down last night! @dr_broon Thanks mate. That's interesting, have you checked your earth straps? I changed mine and cleaned up where they attach to the body and it helped things with the electrics. I replaced the wires in the top two photos in this thread: (there is another thread which shows another earth if you have vtec but i cant find it)

    Cheers Dave, really happy with how its turned out! Oh perfect about the plug if it is, I'll have a check with a voltmeter when I get the chance. I did think potentially it was for a CD changer. If it's for a tow bar itll make wiring in a second fog light easy!

    Finally got round to fitting my coilovers with a 50mm drop all round, more than I'd hoped, but that was as high as i dared go on the adjusters, didnt want it super firm. Will let it settle for a week or so before trying to raise it up if needed. Don't want the car trying to eat the arch liners or anything stupid like that! The car looks a little nose heavy - is this normal? I measured from the floor to the top of the wheel arch to keep the drop the same for the front and rear over stock measurements. Have also made some coilover covers out of the arms/legs of an old wetsuit to

    Yeah never really thought about the optional extras. I've just checked the dealership brochure in the download section and even weirder it says my car should come with colour-coded handles and mirrors but doesnt haha. The MA's are nice, the half coloured bumpers remind me of the old Rover 214's / Toyotas AE86! @AJCivic The previous owner installed the fogs however it shouldn't be hard to fit some. I've got the proper fog light switch in the dash & they can only be turned on when i've got the side lights on, so would assume the switched power is taken somewhere from th

    Yeah same mine has drums and no abs too! Guess the iS just adds ac? Have been keeping an eye out for some rear discs to do a conversion at some point but cant justify it at the moment. Gotta love a base model though, less to go wrong!

    Thanks mate, might have already gone back on that though and ordered some coilovers haha.. things are looking better with work so it was a pre-christmas treat Just waiting for things to arrive before fitting them. In other updates.. - Fitted the K&N Panel Filter but no photos. - Fitted some LED number plate lights for a Ford, got fed up with LED T10 bulbs blowing or flickering in the Honda bulb holders. Had to make a 10mm spacer and some wiring for it to all fit but working well! (bright!) - Sprayed the front grille black & wrapped the boot trim black. Had p
