Not that bad at all. The seats are still comfy but the frame creak sometimes. Fabric is a little bit worn but that's to be expected anyway. Armrest is a little bit worn and, weirdest of things, sticky when it's hot...

My car is a 2012, with much less miles. How are you keeping your headlights clear? I'm almost to the point of buying new OEM ones before it gets past the 10 year mark.
I got them watersanded and refinished (clearcoated) at my bodyshop about a year ago. Once you do that however, have somebody apply a 3M clear wrap or something else on them or your clearcoat will peel off with rocks, sand and abrasives inpact. I didn't and it's starting to peel off... :( I also put car wax on them like 2x per week... ;)

If you take a look at the fog lamps, the were hopeless and the right one is even cracked. Now you can see right thru it. What did i do? Sanded glass for hours.. No! I just applied some 3M clear wrap on it after i cleaned them with steel wool. It's like the glue from the wrap filled the holes and the glass became clear again.. It was a totally unintended but welcomed outcome as i only wanted the wrap to prevent the left one to crack (they are expensive..) and maybe seal off the right one..

so what type of corrosion protection are you using, if any? i ask cause canadian winters are tough on our cars, and yours looks hella clean for 400k 👌🏻
Whatever that guy is using.


He's like a rustproofing guru around here and gets lots of work from just about everywhere in the province. I personally like the fact that he won't do any holes in your car to apply the stuff, instead,he will remove body trims, clips and plugs to do so. The first time he did my car, it took a complete day. It's not rare to see a Tesla or some other electric car having done a 6 hours drive to gets their cars rust proofed. However, he's loaded for like 9 months in advance.. if not a year...

I also intend to pay that guy a visit..


He's the one that does most detailing jobs on a friend's Mercedes and Miata and boy he knows what he's doing.. o_O

Marko!

Btw, 401k Now..

....a place my car doesn't see often.. Now in for those dreaded rear calipers, the real Achille's heel of the 9th gen platform and probably many other Hondas.
