Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / What would you change for the MK4 JAZZ?
« Last post by Jwright558 on Today at 01:12:33 PM »
I think I would add another engine maybe the 1.0 civic engine and leather upholstery in black, grey and beige, introduce a Sporty model with Type R style upgrades.

I asked Honest John { ) if this would improve the ride and tyre noise levels and got this reply
"It is improved by switching to 15s and preferably Michelin Cross Climate tyres that also give a better ride, but one reader found that you can get compliant Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons all weather tyres in the rare Honda 16-inch size. No worries about speedo, etc swapping from 16s to 15s because the rolling circumferences of the deeper profile tyres are roughly the same."

The smaller rim has a deeper profile tyre and is a more comfortable ride with less road noise. I would be interested to hear from others experiences.
If the overall diameter is roughly the same I can't see why they look odd in the wheel arches.

I'm thinking of fitting 15 inch alloys to my 2013 Jazz in place of the 16 inch ones and wonder if the wheels from the Civic will fit the Jazz ok?

Why 15's?

They'll look lost in the Arches in my opinion.
It will most likely be whatever 1.5 engine they use in other parts of the world. The UK market is too small to make a specific version of an engine for. The Honda website says a 130 bhp 1.5.
Didn't mean to press this - perhaps admin can remove?
Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / The Black Pearl - Build Thread (Pic heavy)

Hiya guys, my name is Rhys and I'm from Chelmsford in Essex.

My partner and I recently bought a 2013 Jazz Si, we came from a Honda CR-Z which we loved but unfortunately it wasn't very practical so I managed to convince my other half to sell the CR-Z, buy an S2000 as a weekend toy/project and buy a Jazz as a daily driver. My partner uses the Jazz to commute to work and fortunately for me I can cycle in.

The idea was to keep the Jazz standard and really concerntrate
I've used forums in the past and quite often actually for inspiration and to find out useful information, but would really like to document my progress on the new projects.

Hopefully I can get these images to work - it's been a while!

Our CR-Z

This was my inspiration...

Here's my S2k  :P

Some boxes of the best type of deliveries

First thing was some wind deflectors and I really liked the OEM ones so...

Then the head unit I had in my CR-Z went in...

I had a GE8 Manifold on the CR-Z which fits the Jazz, it has slightly bigger internals and should make the car breathe a bit better, so here's the joys of adding this - god the engine bay has no space to work!

Air box and battery all had to come out just to get easier access...

The two side by side...

Finishes project...

Then I got a reverse camera which fits in place of the number plate light unit and began trying to run the wiring to the rear light - what a ball ache! Because number plate is on the tailgate running the wires was super tricky, in the past all my cars had the number plate located on the bumpers making life a bit easier...

I've yet to finish the reverse camera install, I just need to tap into the reverse light wire (if anyone knows which one it is that would be helpful!) and then run the video camera wire to the unit and hopefully it should work - a job for the weekend.

Other mods so far:

  • Armster armrest
  • Lowered by 35mm on springs from demontweaks - some German brand.
  • K&N drop in panel filter - already on the car
  • Day light running lights on the front bumper - already on the car
  • Philips LED side lights and Osram Nightbreakers dipped beam

I will update as I go! but not planning on too much more (he says..)

I still have some stuff to go on, front lip, rear spoiler and hopefully some new wheels! (Si wheels will go up for sale if anyone is interested).

Go to Canada oif you want Canadian fuel prices. Any comparison without mentioning UK taxes on fuel is meaningless.
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Anyone changed Whole Exhaust For their Jazz?
« Last post by TG on Today at 11:47:03 AM »
Access to the cat flange bolts is not great if they need cutting, but with patience and a decent blade it can be done.  O2 sensor wiring is a nearby so gas might not be a good idea which puts off the fast fit garages.  My cat flange was very rusty, to the point the garage refused to touch it and quoted for a new cat as well as mid exhaust.  Lifted the driver's side up quite high at home with decent stands to make life easier and parked inside garage.  Would rather pay money than do it outside in winter without decent supports and time.

After fitting make sure rear and mid section still have a moving spring joint with donut washer between them or the lifetime will be greatly reduced.

Guide here:  > Windows and Wipers  >  Front Corner Glass Replacement

Guide mentions specialist bonding materials and primer, but you may be able to use double sided glazing tape as used for sealed units in household windows.

Ideally Autoglass or similar should do this under your insurance for a nominal glass excess.

Problem is I forgot to ask if Canada has imperial or US gallons.
Canada appears to use Litres for their fuel measurement. I don't know it that is just the French Eastern areas or the whole country. The Canadian guys I chat to on Fuelly, and the like, all quote their Fuel Efficiency in L/100km. I believe Canada went metric in the 1970s.
