    Anyone know how to get air into these valves?

    Got my car 2 weeks ago from Japan. It has Advan Racing wheels but they dont have standard valves. I managed to get the unusual cap off but they need some sort of attachment to get air into them. Has anybody ever seen these before? Is there some sort of attachment I can get to pump them up or...

    I'm not a DC5 owner anymore

    I know, It so needs a spoiler. Not so sure I'm lucky, really miss the ITR but everyone is giving out to me cos I have a skyline. They just dont understand. The only thing that is making me feel better is that the skyline cost me just over half what I sold the tegger for.

    I'm not a DC5 owner anymore

    :cry: Its a sad day - I sold my DC5. Financial commitments with a new house forced the sale and now its gone forever. Its not all bad though. Got myself a nice R34 GTT skyline instead so that has softened the blow a bit!! Here are some pics of my new machine...

    No automatic function on the drivers window!!??

    It costs a good bit less to buy and I need cash to put into the house at the house at the moment. Insurance is less than the ITR so thats not too bad. Will defo pass on the website details to her. already told her about it so i'm sure she has been on for a look already.

    No automatic function on the drivers window!!??

    I have another problem with my auto window though. It goes up to the top and then jumps back down an inch or so. Only happens on auto though for some reason. Anybody ever had this problem

    Yipee!!! The Key cut from a photo works!!!!

    Got my Key in the post last night from adz and it works. I am very impressed because I didn't think it would work, then again what do I know about cutting keys. So anyone who only got one key now has a way to get a second one without even making the journey. Fair play to you adz!!!

    FAQ Section

    I think a servicing section too. Even things like what type of oil is best and online places to get service parts. Here in Ireland Honda dont know what a DC5 is so there is no chance of me getting them to service mine so I have to know the details so I can get it all done somewhere else.

    On the way!

    That is such a good price. Believe it or not I got a better rate on the Yen when I bought mine I think it was about 196 yen to a £ or 135 yen to a €. That means that to bring my car into the uk it would have cost me about £11000 and that was back in july. Thats if I include 10%...

    what octane petrol???

    @rich - not sure if I would go there, I would be a bit sceptical about changing the ECU, I mean honda spent a long time developing the one that is in the car and I dont think its right to be messing with the revs and stuff????? I have no experience with this but its just my gut feeling.

    DC5 help & general questions.

    I suppose your right, but now that we have the best of the FWD cars outside the door, what comes next?? I am thinking for me possible an RX-8 or an R34 or possibly the new slivia s15. There is one thing for sure (it wont be german!!!!!).
