Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: What shade of silver.
« Last post by RichardA on October 14, 2018, 12:14:05 PM »
There were two shades of silver (three if you count Storm Silver) - Satin Silver and Alabaster Silver. I can't tell the difference between the two.

A 2002 car will be Satin Silver (see link above).

I wonder if there is a trade in scrotes trying to con people into buying a reconditioned (read: stolen) CVT box when all is needed is a system flush and oil change.

Perfect thanks.

I don't know why I wasn't coming up with that when I searched.
Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: T ROC
« Last post by RichardA on October 14, 2018, 11:44:44 AM »
I guess the T-Roc is a Qashqai rival and the Tiguan is more CR-V competitor?

I'm normally ambivalent about VWs, I find most rather bland but the GTI/R models and the Scirocco I quite like. The T-Roc is in the latter category, I particularly like the funky Morphy Richards DRLs. Shame the interior quality isn't what you'd expect from a VW, that is after all main reason for buying a VW  ;D. I hear VW are going to clone the Seat Arona to pitch below the T-Roc, I hate to think what the interior of that will be like.

Did they give you an idea of delivery? I was thinking of replacing my Jazz with a Seat Ibiza FR Sport 115 or 150 or maybe a Seat Leon, but I often hear about quoted delivery times of 12 weeks or more. And some engines are unavailable or on restricted supply due to some WLTP cock-up by VW group - the last time I checked the Seat configuration, the Leon was only available in low spec trim with nothing more than a manual-only 115PS three cylinder petrol or DSG-only 1.6-litre diesel.

Honda do not fit Apple Carplay (or Android Auto) in the Jazz in the UK and presumably not in the rest of Europe either. The Jazz/Fit in the US does come with it but Honda for some reason chose not to offer it here.

I'd say it's unlikely a software upgrade would be available. I read that Mazda offer a dealer-fit 'box' on the MX5 to add Apple Carplay/Android Auto to the infotainment system, so one would presume there would be more to it than a software upgrade.

I'm not sure if swapping the headunit would work. Even if it did, you may lose some other functionality - I'm not sure if the US has DAB radio or RDS - I believe they have HD radio and satellite radio instead.

People will still want air conditioning when the sun goes down but that could be handled with some thermal ballast which gets cooled in the middle of the day when there's surplus solar power.

When we lived in Sydney a lot of the larger buildings used to do the opposite,  they used surplus nighttime energy to make huge ice blocks and then used them to help the aircon cool the buildings during day.  One thing we did notice about buildings in Australia is that architects had lost the plot.  The older buildings had high ceilings, smaller windows, overhanging roofs (to keep sun off the walls) and ventilation built into ceilings and walls.  The newer buildings had massive areas of glass, no overhanging walls and low ceilings.  The fact is the older buildings did not need aircon and felt cool inside even on the hottest days,  the new buildings needed massive amounts of aircon even in the winter - WTF !

In Car Entertainment / Carplay support?
« Last post by holovicc on October 14, 2018, 08:40:52 AM »
Hello, i have read that in 2018 Jazz/Fit models support Carplay. I am about to buy a brand new Jazz, and my dealer tells me there's no such thing in current Jazz models. Maybe Carplay was for US models only?

What options do i have?

-is there a software upgrade or anything that enabled Carplay on the current Jazz i am about to receive?
-or can i order a new head unit from the US and replace the one in mine?

If you lived in Europe and you can purchase a Jazz with Carplay support, please let me know, too!

I hope someone here knows this head unit stuff in and out.
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / K&N Air Filter exist?
« Last post by bus_ter on October 13, 2018, 11:17:11 PM »

The K&N website says I need one of these for my 2006 Honda Jazz:

However I'm pretty sure this is incorrect. I know the correct official filter looks like this:

Does anyone know if this is in fact correct? Or if they make a filter that will fit?
