  1. Off vs. Parking Lights vs. Headlights

    I've had this discussion with a few other car owners and wanted your thoughts. The 3 dial settings on the Civic is "Off", "Parking Lights" (two light bulb symbols facing each other), and "headlights" (big single bulb symbol) which also engages the parking lights of course. Pretty much all...

    Interior Problems

  4. Idiots!

    I stopped @ the post office to pick up my mail. I couldn't have been in there for more than 5mins. I come out and some idiot hit the front driver's side bumper of my Si. No structural damage, but the paint has been completely scraped off (about the size of a softball but oblong). I consider...
  5. Parking Brake Wire

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    I'll be installing a Pioneer AVH-P3400 into a 2012 Civic LX sedan tomorrow and the only thing that is completely unclear to me is how to access the parking brake wire. I do not want to bypass this safety feature as the car doesn't belong to me (it's my brother's). Has anyone else installed an...

  8. Drove over a parking lot divider

    Today after leaving a customer appointment for work I was straight up just not paying attention and didn't remember that one of those concrete parking dividers was right under my bumper. The parking lot was open but a fair amount of spots were taken, so I didn't remember that those were even...

    Detailing, Wash & Wax
    Hi everyone, I have a 2012 Si and I am used to driving alone or only having one passenger in the car. However, the other day I had a fully loaded car and didn't think about how all those people will lower my ground clearance and when I pulled into a parking spot, I scraped the bottom of my...
  10. Coil spring binding noise?

    Drivetrain Problems
    Metal bang noise Anyone hear that when the car is not moving? I heard it from the front of the car with either the engine running or not. What are some likely causes? It sounds like some popping of the metal. Sent from my HTC Desire HD A9191 using AutoGuide App
