    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    This needed a little getting used to. But nothing can beat original Underground, U2 and original Most Wanted. Completed The Run as well, but slightly too heavy for my rather mediocre laptop.

    IMA battery warning on GP1

    What's the mileage of your car? And YOM?

    Two door cars. Which is the worst.

    CRZ auto transmission is a CVT. Not dual clutch.

    Cool Ebay Gadgets For Cars

    They have that tablet type small battery. I bought one because my internal clock cannot be changed manually. The luminous clock hands are bloody useless in low light. So purchased a clock unit that run off the power socket.

    I bought a Steelmate TPMS from Aliexpress. It has configurable high/low pressure/temperature settings. At just over 12k, I would call it even affordable, considering the price Su*L*nka quotes. I'm pretty happy with the purchase as it helped me to identify a few punctures early.

    Honda FIT GP1 - Engine Oil Burning

    Have you calculated fuel consumption from one pump to the next? From my experience dashboard indication is slightly optimistic. Mine does 16-18kpl depending on traffic. But I do not drive in high traffic regions. Worst I've done is around 14kpl per tank when I had to travel frequently in traffic during time I got wedding stuff to attend to.

    Fit GP1 Oil Level Drops

    @hondaclub How many kilometres have you done so far following the cylinder replacement? Does the oil level remain in tact between services now?

    Good dash cam for the Car

    Have been using a Transcend DrivePro 100 since late 2015. Bought it from Chel**yLK at MC for around 13k LKR. After 3 years I began to notice that every now and then the date settings reset after constantly correcting it. Now when the car is shut off for 10-15 hours the data and time settings reset back to factory settings which means the battery is shot. Apart from that, video quality is still good as it was new. When the camera is aimed at sunlight the view becomes underexposed a bit. Tried to fashion a polarising filter from stuff I bought from AliExpress and due to added weight camera began to shake when the road got bumpy. Now the model is discontinued though. As said previously in this thread, try to buy a cam with a cap instead of a battery. They will last a lot longer. If you're tight on the budget, get a G1W-C with correct chipset. Most ebay sellers do fakes. Also, try to get one with wifi so that you can stream the video on your phone - where the screen is large. That will be handy when the cops try to penalise you for some wrong you didn't commit.

    Aaaand I got the same reply from Honda Japan (See email below). If their car has a problem in Japan, in the market it was DESIGNED for, no wonder it will have the same problem as a grey import in a market it was not intended to. *********** Thank you very much for your e-mail, and we're sorry for the late reply.While we appreciate your patronage on your car, we would like to inform you that we produce our vehicles for specific markets. Even though some parts may be used jointly by different specification models underlying construction, emission system, etc. may be very different. Because each country establishes its own certification testing standards, cars of a particular specification are tested only for those markets.And if any vehicle of different specification is used, problems with parts availably, differences in construction, etc. can result in much aggravation and unnecessary delays for the customer.From the above reason, we don't recommend car import because we are not able to provide with our best assist for customers and product warranty will be invalied for parallel import vehicles and therefore, extension of the warranty period will not be applied too.Thank you very much again for you're interesting with our products. We wish you can find the one with the performance you seek at your local dealer.Sincerely yours,Honda Motor Co., Ltd.

    Fit GP1 Oil Level Drops

    That's delicate work. If the rings do not provide adequate back pressure the bearings and whatnot that need proper oil pressure will be toast.

    Fit GP1 Oil Level Drops

    I did. The problem is in the rings. "...... on the brake from mid-low speed running to just before stopping, the deposit (*) generated due to oil deterioration stays around the oil ring Then, clogging of the oil return hole....... "

    Guys can we keep this in one thread? Because we might miss vital info if we keep posting on two threads. I suggest we move to older thread that has 5 pages of responses.
