At this rate, i'll just end up keeping the Jazz until it dies
It won't die (ditches & random drunks excluded).  While costs are low there seems little point selling, hadn't planned to keep mine for 15 years, but when you've still got good tyres / brakes / battery / exhaust lifespan it's always 'one more year', then any replacements mean '3 more years'.  Gear shifts into 1 & 2 were getting a bit notchy but fresh oil plus a Xado additive and it's back to normal.  Plus there's no sign of a new Civic Tourer yet.

I know what youre saying.

Considering all the mods I've done to get it to where its at, its still relatively cheap for what I want to sell the car at.

My target market is very limited/ niche so I doubt I'll be selling it any time soon.  That said, should someone come along with my asking, I'll be sad to let her go but happy at the same time.

This Jazz is by far the longest I've ever owned any one vehicle (8 years and counting) and I'd never thought that would be the case, but its been pretty faultless so long may that continue

I got them from a US website

https://www.partscheap.com/2010-2013-honda-fit-interior/

Was also charged customs and vat so ended up being quite expensive pedals  :(

Ah I see, hrmm I have that dilemma with a rear spoiler I want to order, I'm concerned it's going to amass a big customs fee.

It's the only place I've seen a US sport Fit spec rear spoiler, the UK versions are a joke, I haven't seen that style anywhere in the UK

As you can see in my build, unfortunately you tend to pay top dollar as they isnt any UK companies stocking goods for our Jazz.

The front lip spoiler I bought was from Singapore and iirc, the part itself was only 150, but was another 150 for shipping then I got stung by customs for another 80, then paint and installation was 120

Yikes! Scary to think how much ive spent modding her to what she is today lol

At least you get a free usb cable with it

I dont think there would be much of an extra cost on that as its from china and normally items arent that bad when coming from there
