  3. Over the the top Tuned Civic? Whats your opinion ?
  4. I guess this is a question for the track car owners. I've not long had a 4 wheel alignment and I noticed the car felt different pretty much straight away and I'm sure the cars' predictability has lessened. The only alterations made were to the front and rear toe which have slightly altered the camber (~ 0.05') and caster (+ 0.05'-0.10') according to the alignment report. What the car feels like now is that turn in is not quite as sharp (like I have to turn the steering wheel a touch further), and on moderate bends (steadily powering round the bend) the back feels like it is oversteering. Also straight line cruise feels a little wandery at the rear as if there is very little air in the rear tyres. The way it drove prior to the alignment really suited my driving style, so I'm not sure what to do. Here is my before and after 'Total Toe' settings: Before Front -0.22' | Rear 0.10' | Thrust Angle 0.10' After Front -0.01' | Rear 0.20' | Thrust Angle 0.00' My question is... Could the small toe setting changes have caused these symptoms? I can provide a pic of the alignment report if needed.
  5. as far as I can see they are providing saftey to peeps on streets.. I am not bothered by them.. i don't commit crime so why should i be bothered.

    2 year MOT’s

    I agree... some company cars see 60,000 miles or more in 2 years... build quality in some cars are aweful!

    CRV Transmission problems

    Had a flashing Green D (Drive) light on the CRV this afternoon, it lasted for about 2 minutes. A minute from home we noticed the flashing D light. Parked in the drive and turned off the ignition. Checked the manual, It said 'Possible transmission problem'. May sometimes be accompanied with a warning sign as well if there is a problem. There was no warning sign that I was aware of, but I went back out to check. When I started the engine everything was as normal. No flashing D light and no warning light. I have not seen the flashing light since.. has anyone else had this?
