  1. Installed a Ebay Replica Wing On My Gen1

    Installed my ebay replica wing today. Took a bit of body work to get right. I painted it myself using some color match rattle can mixed up by a local company, NH552M Sebring Silver Metallic. They warned me the color might be darker but I guess it looks okay. I wet sanded with 1500/2000 and waxed...
  2. How I Installed Amp/Sub in 2008 Honda CR-V

    Mobile Electronics
    I have been meaning to do this for more than a year but keep forgetting. When I got this CRV It took me a while to figure out the best way to do a stereo install. My problem is the amp is to big and even though there are a couple of nice installs floating around the WWW, very few helped me out...
  3. 2006 2WD KYB rear struts installed

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Just swapped out the factory rear struts with 128,000 miles on them after the driver side rear had been clunking for about the last 10,000 miles and was slowly coating the lower control arm in oil. Went with the KYB Strut-Plus all in one struts since the rear was sitting a little lower than it...
  4. Honda 19" Rims Installed

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Got my new Honda 19" rims installed today. Put on Michelin Premier LTXs. This combination is fantastic! The car is very smooth and quiet - quite a change from the winters I had on (Nokian WGR3s). The car handles better - quicker turn-ins. Takes corners more 'like it's on rails'. Well, really...

  6. Have you installed roof rails, cross bars, moonroof windscreen, mudguards? Would you?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi, I'm receiving my EX-L next week. I was looking for a specific color (exterior and interior), so had to find one that was "in route", so I had no wiggle room with the sales manager and price. There are some options that I would like on the vehicle, but from what I've seen, they are fairly...

  9. Amp & Subwoofer issues with 2017 CRV LX (just installed)

    Mobile Electronics
    When i accelerate between 1000rpm and 1800rpm the sub pounds like a mofo. My amp has a built in LOC. Been using the same amp for 4 cars. I used pin 25 as remote wire and used the front speaker leads from the head unit. Does my car have active noise cancelling or is that just higher up...

    When I start my new CRV with the remote, the alarm goes off. Honda requires drivers to first click the lock button (which activates the alarm) and then do the start button. Anyway to start remotely without the alarm going off? I did try to start it remotely with the doors unlocked but it...

  12. Curt hitch #13306 installed, pics

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I had the Draw Tite 2" hitch installed on my CR-V. I didn't care for the quality of it (receiver was slightly off plumb, canted clockwise) or how much of it was exposed under the vehicle. Looked clunky. I'm not all that worried about appearance, but I do like this look better. The main...
  13. Anyone have a pic of EGR Superguard installed?

    I emailed the company asking them if that had any pictures of a Superguard installed on a 2013 CR-V or a vehicle similar to it. They basically said that they emailed the company headquarters in Australia to see if they had any pictures. I would like to see the look of it before pulling the...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Has anyone installed a cargo liner? Here's a link to it on eBay. I looked through the instructions and it involves drilling. I'm a little apprehensive to do it myself. Just wondering how involved it is to install.
  16. Installed new LED headlights & fogs today

    So with a 2016 EXL I hated how the stock fogs and headlights looked compared to the LED DRL around the headlight assembly Took care of that today by installing LED hi beams, low beams and fogs, I think it looks great, perfect match for the LED DRL These are fanless ones from Stark...

  18. Installed Touring headlights on my 2015 LX plus other goodies

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I had a thread on here about is it easy to swap in the touring headlights for the stock halogen housing. The answer is yes except you have to wire in the LED going around the housing which is simple. I will be doing that next week or so. The connector is the same 3pin connector found on the MAP...
