  1. Customisation and Accessories

    This week I am having the dealer fit the Genuine Koba Tow Bar Wiring Harness, but no tow bar. I am going from this -V- To this -V- So that I can power up THESE!!!!! -V- These are running lights and brake lights and I am not sure if it is legal to have them come on with the other running lights in WA, but they are Brake lights as well. Now if there was a blinker/brake/running light replacement I would be tempted to buy and install those since I will have blinker wiring on tap going to waste.

    That is the difference between the original design team and the follow-up hazard removal team. I expect that the original design team considered the design from a human factors perspective and ease of removal for racing as opposed to the engineering risk of someone placing items in the hole rendering the brake switch ineffective. We live in a world where the lowest common denominator has to be factored in at all levels.

  9. Rattle sound from under dashboard

    Could be the GPS antenna has dislodged. I think Chitty mentioned that when he pulled his head unit out the GPS antenna was hanging loose.
  10. CH-R recall

    Only one recall so far... No bad for a new model on a new chassis. Waiting for my letter.

  13. C-HR Head Unit

    I updated the Startup Logo on my unit to a modified C-HR Club Logo of 1024 x 600 pixels.
  14. C-HR Head Unit

    I repurposed the speak button as a mute button. Other than that all buttons retained their original functionality. If I can find a way to use the speak button for "OK Google" I would be extatic. Total install time was less than an hour.
