Just joined, and already found touch up paint at the best price (with shipping) that I've seen online! Hoping to find tips/tricks for reducing the amount of water that gets in when I wash my car. I spend a fair amount of time wiping water from the doors/sills, and not to mention the mud and road dirt that accumulates at the bottom of the doors. Seems like Honda cheaped out on moulding that might have prevented this. Thanks for any help anyone might be able to offer.

Welcome to the forum! You might watch some YouTube videos on adding extra weather-stripping, of which there are many different kinds, to help with this. I've done it in the past on a Jeep, and on big truck doors too (for wind noise). Some kinds are better than others, so research it well for the best result. Let us know how it goes.

My ride

Hey, Larry, I love that color! I had no intention of purchasing the day that I visited the dealership, but the Molten Lava color, along with many appealing features, changed my mind. Here's my Phoenix. 41977896_10216857648814426_6680672374519496704_n 2.jpg

I see what you mean. That is a gorgeous car! So, give us your first impressions of driving it.

Oddly enough, when I sold my Jeep a few years back I swore I'd never buy another green car. Till I saw this one. Oh, well.

Well, I love the handling of the vehicle. The engine is peppy and the steering is tight. Comfort ranks high on my list of likes as well, and I love Apple Car Play, which turns turns my display into a GPS, pops up and plays text messages for me, and adds a better audio quality to my iTunes music. Oh, and did I mention gas mileage? Average is about 30 in town, as I am a conservative driver, and up to 34 on the highway. Overall, I love my new ride.

That sounds like just how I'd describe my '07. Except for the fuel mileage, which is much less. But I am a leadfoot. Still way better than my F250, which gets 10mpg. I will soon be doing a major audio upgrade and will hopefully have all those nifty features too. What tires do you have? If they are the Hankooks, I would be wary of them. They won't last long. You can find a lot of discussion on them here. I run only Michelins, but my V has Pirellis on it right now. They are loud and stiff. One thing I noticed about the new models after riding in one is that they are quieter - less road noise. Hopefully new tires will help me out on that.

Have fun!
