Haven't done it yet, but bought a portable garage that I am going to set up tomorrow.

Black car, pollen/dust infesting the car within minutes of being washed, so this will be a much welcome relief. Maybe I can get away with just 1 wash per week plus California duster in between.

I bought the Kicker 11HS8 Hideaway powered subwoofer and had it professionally installed today!

It is such a great improvement to the stock sound system for the price and form factor. I am so happy to finally have some depth to my music!

Well, if you don't calibrate it at 100K miles your odometer will only read 90K Another reason I don't buy used!

I drove to pick up my friend, then to the lab for our blood work. Then to lunch, took my friend back home then drove to work.

What I did NOT do today is have my keys locked in my trunk when said friend shut my trunk after I laid my keys down to retrieve her purse! :-)

Did some errands today...I'm liking this Honda more and more every time I drive it. Kudos to the posters above that did such an awesome job cleaning up their cars, they look great! I'll likely be doing a clay bar and polish/sealer and wax treatment in the next few weeks..Additionally I'll be ordering the rear lip spoiler and a few other goodies.

Bought the JBL MS-62c kit. However, I didn't have time to change all the speakers so I decided to just do the tweeters because it looked easy... and it is ! the panels pop off so easily and the old tweeters get removed with ease. I then put the new tweeters in and use some adhesive to hold it in there, along with some closed cell foam stuffed into the tweeter panel pod when putting back on. Sound is now at least 500% improved from the tweeter change alone. I may not even hurry to change the woofers on the doors at this rate. Amazing how they decided spending a few dollars for better stock tweeters would undercut their profitability... the stock tweeters are just so awful!
