Default Glad to be back @ Honda

Hello dear Honda friends.

I'm Michel from The Netherlands, Rotterdam.
I'm from April 1984.
I'm a lorry driver with chemicals in all sorts and forms.

Because there are not many Honda forums in our language I thought, let's see on Google and here we are.

I'll not bother you to much with my blablabla.
Pics, that's what we like.

My car history:

Toyota Corolla 1.6 GTS-i from 1991







My second car.
Mitsubishi Galant 2.0 Automatic.









My third
Honda Civic Coupé 2001 1.7 v-tec full option with leather interior.




No nonsense and clean!



My fourth car
Honda Civic 1.8 Executive Full options

Then the important bit!!

Then the day comes that I've got tired of al that modern cars so I bought myself a nice Honda Accord Coupe of 2001.
It's imported in 2008 from Toronto.
Al the papers of all maintenance are with the car.
It has 113000km on the clock and it drives like a dream.













I hope to see some nice ideas and tips here.
To begin, my SRS light is on all the time and I'm going to search for it on the forum.


Hopefully you'll like my topic and this is enough and I didn't MESS up your language to much

Glad to here that because it was a hell of a job haha

Thank you for that wonderfull flag

Hope to find lots of information here like the size and offset of my rims, cause I think my tires are a bit to wide.
With 4 persons in the car it scrapes the rear fenders over a speedbumbs and the SRS airbag light lights up all the time.

Just found out that my car has the F23a1 engine.
Probably because it's imported from Canada.

F23A1

This engine was used in the 1998-2002 Honda Accord LX, EX, and SE, LEV models, and in the Acura 2.3CL in North America.
Specifications

Bore × Stroke: 86.0 × 97.0 mm
Displacement: 2254 cc
Valve Configuration: SOHC, 16 valves, VTEC
Compression ratio: 9.3:1
Max power: 150 hp (112 kW) @ 5700 rpm
Max torque: 152 lb·ft (205 N m) @ 4900 rpm
Normally these cars in Europe have a F20 or the 3.0 V6 so I'm very happy with it
Hopefully the parts are easy to find in my country.

Just fixed the seat, the bracket of the electric height adjuster was loose so the seat moved when I was driving haha.
Only in the lower part of the backrest there's an annoying bar that's poking my back, hope to fix that soon.

Yesterday I took a look underneath and she is rockhard.
There's a SRS stainless steel exhaust after the cat.
Rest looks pretty virgin.





This weekend I'm going to polish the car and shoot some nice pics.

Also build in a 2 din radio in the Audi of my best friend.
