    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!!!

    Suspension too hard - help

    The suspension in my DC5 is just not able for the crap roads where I live. As much as I love how it can handle the corners, and I am sure it would be a dream on the track, I will never be on a track. I really need to change the suspensions for something still good handling but slightly softer...

    What are the service intervals for dc5

    Just got my dc5 and there is a sticker on the fusebox from honda japan to say that the oil was changed at 16000km and the next one is due at 21000km. Is that the correct interval - 5000km. How often should I change sparks, air filter and everything else that needs changing?

    what octane petrol???

    Just wondering what RON petrol you all run your DC5's on. I saw on the spec page that it is supposed to be 100RON. I havn't got my car yet but when I do I'm not sure what to do. Petrol in Ireland is 95RON, 97 is few and far between and costs up to 35c a litre more. I have been looking into...

    DC5 supplier in Ireland

    Hi, I have just ordered an ITR from a fella in Dublin called Arthur McCooey. I was looking for one for a while and he was by far the most organised supplier I could find. My 2001 white DC5 is leaving Japan today so I should have it in six weeks or so. He had imported over 600 cars and is very...
