Wait the Sport has a an all black trim piece? I never noticed that when I did my dad's Sport haha. Or maybe it changed from 2014 to 2016. If you're handy, you could vinyl wrap it in black, but I'm awful at vinyl wrapping. But yea, definitely not worth paying for the Metra kit just for the black pieces. I think the silver accent matches the center shifter panel pieces pretty well if you can't paint it black.

Wait did they change the center dash that much? What is that giant circular thing??? And where's your USB/12V below it? The silver vents look solid to me, they match up with the silver trim below.
The giant circular thing is my magnetic iPhone holder. I removed the USB/12V and replaced it with USB/HDMI input.

A nice little maintenance session today. Oil change with Castrol EDGE 0w-20 and a Fram Ultra Synthetic filter, 2nd drain and fill ATF with 3.4qts DW-1 and removed and cleaned some leakage off the top of the battery. Not sure why it was seeping but Im going to keep an eye on it

Since I use ACP, I don’t use Bluetooth.

I’ll take a pic soon, but they look exactly the same to me. Took them about 2 hours, and no appointment was necessary.

Completely forgot to post the picture, but here it is. The new headlight is the one on the right.

New set of snow tires. Even though my friend's post-graduation roadtrip to BC is likely cancelled, and the fact that Pittsburgh barely had a winter this year, I still put them on for peace of mind.

Also, desperately needed free car wash at dealer.

I'll get the oil changed next week, unless i start driving like crazy like i did Monday.

Changed oil and transmission fluid last night. Car has just shy of 40,000 miles. Wow what a difference shifting from Park to Drive.... almost instant instead of a delay. Tires getting rotated tonight along with changing engine air filter

Brought her into Brandon Honda for a “free alignment check” since I wanted to pick up coolant anyway.

My last set of tires wore perfectly so I just wanted the readout for warranty purposes. Before I could even get out of the car they were convinced I needed to “go ahead and have the alignment done” because I had four new tires and it “always needs to be done at that time”

I told them that wasn’t the case last time when I did pay for it and it and they said it was still within spec.

When I go to pickup the car they said it does need an alignment done. I asked for the measurements they gave me last time for proof and they “don’t hold onto those” and changed the story to “it can’t been too bad otherwise they wouldn’t let you leave”


New accessory belt at 132,000. Not sure how I missed replacing it sooner. FYI the air conditioning line is right up against the tensioner so you’ll definitely need a thin 17mm crescent wrench or similar to fit. I got by with locking pliers but that did chew up the “bolt” a bit.

Low beams on, drls off.

Next project is replacing the high beams with leds and, if necessary a decoder harness.

How is you DRL off? Don't you have the led strip on bottom of headlight ? What trim is yours ?
Your DRLs turn off once you turn on the low beams.

Look at pic above, brights are not on, fogs are on with low beams. I believe on my 17 exlv6 the dlr strip stays on when brights are on , low beams on too, fogs turn off

Sorry, let's clear that up. Mine is a 2016 LX-S. The high beams are the drls as there is no led strip in lx headlight units.

I'm also going to replace the incandescent turn signals. Making it a clean sweep, I am.

But it looks like the drl strip is there, just not lit up. I do not recall seeing that part before. It was obvious if it was lx trim by seeing drl in brights on road, I just do not remember seeing that strip on the bottom that looks like drl on higher trims.
