Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: Frozen windows

The quickest way for me to defrost is to bring a 3 liter can of cold or room temperature water and walk around the Jazz while pouring the water on the windows. Normally the water would then freeze after a few seconds, forming an ice layer on the window, which is difficult to see through. However I have a water repellent treatment on the windows, so only 10 to 100 water drops remain and freeze to the window, giving good visibility. After this I go inside the Jazz and start the engine and drive off.

Water also cleans the window, and doesn't scratch the glass, unlike scraping. But be careful, there may be a risk that the windows could crack, especially if you use hot water.

They do say that recently no two Fords are the same  as there are so many options.  But the insurers will also know that.       But I dont think the Jazz had much variation in their build sheet.   They know that too.
  An  optional extra that was supplied and fitted by the Honda dealership  might be ok ,but even some of those might be regarded as modifications .Especially if it was  a one off customer request rather than a listed  option.  Different fancy alloy wheels  for instance. 

The recommendation from  Adrian Flux insurance  to notify any modification is a good one.      But i would add a further word of caution.  Not all insurers will accept an 18 year old anyway at reasonable cost.  When you start enquiring about proposed modifications, whether they are chargeable or not    it may ring alarm bells with them .Even if you decide not to go ahead.   And the industry share information.  Once you tell one insurer   they will all know.       But if you do them anyway and dont tell them ,its still quite likely they will look more closely at any claim from an 18 year old for possible modifications.  Or any car insured by mum or granny etc  being driven by an 18 year old.  It could mean the insurance is not worth the paper its not even written on. 
    Sorry. I was an 18 year old driver once.   I'd recommend sticking to  absolute standard  until you have enough age and  driving history for premiums to drop a bit to allow some declared  modifications.

The point I was basically making is that by my understanding, this wouldn't be a modification as such. It would be a factory part entirely possible to have been fitted to my car in 2007. But yeah, fair enough, Not really worth it.

I have a set of four silver alloy wheels from my 2005 SE. They are at my home near Halifax. They are in need of refurbishment due to their age and a couple of dinks. They do all have the genuine plastic Honda badge in the centre.

A token £20, which I will donate to charity, and theyíre yours.

Are they the 6 spoke or the 9 spoke? Thanks

I actually quite like it... better than some of the more 'blobby' SUV's (e.g. Mercedes), stuck-on massive grills (BMW) and certainly different to what VAG are putting out (Audi, Skoda, Volkswagen etc). I think Hyundai (and Kia for that matter) are being quite creative with their designs of late.

Also download the separate navigation manual. There are some things that aren't included in the manuals but don't worry, most are explained on this forum.

Yes Iím with Lord V in that I havenít really read most of it ! I did look up where the oil pressure warming light was on the mini dash - itís covered by a flash up message for low oil level and low oil pressure so expect it bongs as well !
