It is still a Honda you'd be please to know! I have loved every moment of owning this car.
It's done me proud in reliability, performance and looks. Its needless to say, I spared no expense.Cal the man himself Jesse Halford. Switchable Maps due to it being Type R GT (Cruise Controls allow map switches). Features: Variable Launch Control Pop and Bang Burbles Auto Blip Flat Foot Shift. Note: Map 1 disables all added features for normal commuting but still runs the full 235.5 bhp and 154.4 lb-ft. Oil change intervals were done between 2500 miles and 3500 miles though I tried to do it as soon as practically possible within those parameters.
I religiously allow the car to warm up for about 1-2minutes (until revs drop to 1500RPM) everyday of use and limit RPM use to around 3500 RPM until Engine temps are nominal. After a long or joyful drive I ensure to keep engine running for a couple minutes before switching it off.
