    I've got a Type-R Replica spoiler, and it has cracks on both sides near the top. They are just hairline cracks, but they run all the way down and are spreading. I'm not sure how deep the crack is because I haven't taken the paint off yet. I was reading some how-to's that says you need to put...

    Hi I recently acquired a 2002 RSX premium. The driver's seat is thorn on the seam in the middle. It might be possible to re-sew it but the leather seems to have shrunk a bit and I'm not sure I could do this by myself. I don`t want to replace the full seat as it's heated and might be a little...

    On the inside of the RSX, you know those plastic pieces that cover the location close to the side mirror units? They have a shape that resembles a triangle.
