Thanks for the replies guys, ironically I did wire one of these many moons ago on a Mk1 fiesta I think I wired it between the sidelights and the door switch I think.........

The tyres on my car are just what was on it when I bought it. Nothing I recognise name wise. I'd neither recommend or decry them.

Yes the Jazz is a bit noisy on the motorway. But it's nothing compared to how noisy my Punto used to be.  :D

I think it is a reasonably smooth ride and I find it comfortable on the motorway. It does depend on the surface. There is some newly relaid surface near me and its very quiet but on the rubbish stuff on the A11 it does lump a bit. 

I changed my plugs this year. I did a post about it. Took me a little over an hour to do. just make sure not to cross thread them!

I just drove back from London to Norwich which was as easy journey. But my back box is currently sitting on the approach to the Barton Mills roundabout. So I need to get that sorted on Monday.

Thanks again TG. The gearbox bearing was done by Honda at 49k along with a new clutch kit and oil so the gearbox feels absolutely slick and I guess should be good beyond the scheduled service point?

I will check the spark plugs. Often wondered if a bad spark plug can do any actual damage or just affect performance/ economy?

I notice a slight growl at around 2500 - 3000rpm when the engine is cold and accelerating, pretty normal I guess for a cold engine?   

Cheers Oli

Yep, quite noisy at 60+, I don't think the load cover makes any difference to noise so I leave it at home. 

Worn rear wheel bearing will be obvious at this speed as wear increases if one side is still OK.  I got fobbed off by Honda within the 7 year extended warranty as 'road noise'.  When it gets bad you will find it rough to turn when jacked up.  My replacements (150 & 25) have now equaled the originals and are still fine. 

Pull out a random spark plug and if it looks OK then wait till next year, repeat as desired - if you are doing them yourself then you can keep them on the shelf and change the set any time you wish; if done at service then you have predict the plug's health over the next 12 months so tend to change perfectly OK plugs. 

You are at the time interval for new gearbox fluid, but still have low mileage, if engaging first is a bit 'notchy' then new oil will help: 1.6l of MTF-3 or equivalent.

They are fairly common at around the 25 mark at the local factors and on eBay.  I have one side a generic at this price - the other Honda at 150, still can't tell the difference after 6 or 7 years.

Thanks for the reply, my last vehicles were a Passat and a Volvo V40 I wasn't expecting the the ride or noise to be near these really.

I am happy with the Jazz's engine, gearbox and handling.

What tyres would you recommend?

Yeah, I have mailed them to clarify, as the title says for discs and abs but it then says Note for drum brakes. So not sure where the mistake is...

Note that it says for DRUM brake models. My 1.2 S Jazz has discs on the rear.
