Cursed my lack of patience. LOL Went ahead and Sharpied the letters in the Crosstour cluster and slapped her in there. For a mod I wasn't that crazy about doing I sure do LOVE the way it looks. Now I have to figure out a permanent way to get rid of those danged letters, because the only thing worse than my impatience is my OCD. ;p

Ordered a new shift boot from Redlinegoods.com Grey Alcantara with quad stitching in black with blue accents. Needed something to brighten up the interior a little, that ought to do the trick. Going to "customize" my Crosstour cluster this weekend. Once its done I'll figure out how to get some pics on here.

Washed the bugs off it from a 3500 mile trip to KC Mo and back. Then rotated the tires just for good measure.
I avg'd 29.3 mpg for the entire trip according to the computer. Have multiple pics of it showing 32+mpg during the trip.
Couldn't have asked more of the car. Only thing that would've made it better is if it didn't have the HFP package on it as it got a little stiff on those long days behind the wheel.
Four days out, three back with 5 days spent there.

I have been watching my wife drive mine since june the 13th. I spiral fractured my right ring finger and have been relegated to "automatic only" driver status. The wires come out this friday and I plan to take the Accord for a celebratory cruise.

Sounds unpleasant. You don't expect it to be pretty darn sore for a bit after they remove the hardware?

I do actually, but it isn't going to stop me LOL I find it difficult to express how little I like driving the wife CRV, its like a punishment. I have grudgingly agreed that if the "test cruise" doesn't go well I will continue to drive the CRV until I have recovered further range of motion. I'm sincerely hoping it goes well, I miss my car terribly....

Maybe just try to shift with your car stopped before you go on the cruise.

And yeah, driving an AT temporarily sucks...

Good luck. I remember breaking my thumb years ago. I was so anxious to get the cast off so I could get back on the motorcycle.
But, when it came off I could not operate the front brake lever, hand was so stiff and weak. Had to squeeze that rubber ball and whatnot a while first.

Wish it's that simple, though the RX-8 does have some desirable traits.

I will wait until the compression is low, then I might look again.

Fed it a 6 ounce bottle of Gumout Fuel Injector and carb cleaner along with a tank of top tier gas.
Have not been feeding top tier like maybe I should, so Gumout.
Tank was pretty low, so will see what MPG is next time I fill er up.
Label on the bottle says put this $4 stuff in every tank.
I don't think so.
