Did you do rust proofing? Or are you just going to keep it as clean as possible?

FYI clean the inside of the rear wheel wells as best you can (especially at the top)

Hondas/Acuras are prone for rust in those spots fairly quickly (i.e. < 5 years) if ignored consistently (probably most cars are)

I've driven everything from a 92 VX Hatch to this Type-R down here in lower Michigan and rust isn't a huge issue. It is in the Upper Peninsula where road salt/dirt mix is common and this car probably won't be exposed to that again.

You are probably right in your area.

I am from Canada so salt/dirt/snow does a real number to the rear wheel arches if not kept clean.

Salt and corrosion are major problems in Ontario/Quebec, but not in the West.

Agreed. None of my vehicles have had any rust issues (at all), living in Alberta. I'm now in BC and we get tons of rain but virtually no snow (in Vancouver area). While the air may be somewhat salty, vehicles here still seem to be quite clean, even after 10 years. I think the constant washing by rain helps them out...

It might be my imagination but this car seems louder in the cabin in colder weather...like the exhaust drone is louder. I started to realize it when every single person I talk to over bluetooth has commented that there is quite a loud drone when I am going 75+ on cruise.

Are you wearing a hooded winter coat thatís perhaps cupping the sound near your head?

Winter tire roar.

How are panel gaps on your CTR? Iíve heard build quality is just ok. Waiting to see what else Honda has in the pipeline but may pick one up.

Indeed - it's mostly noise from the hard steamroller tyres.

But also, rubber suspension bushes lack compliance and even damper oil is gloopier. So NVH goes out the window.

It's particularly noticeable in the S2000.

Also - a cold flute sounds horrible and so will your gun.

Be careful not to mix these up. Sticking a bank up with a flute, and turning up to orchestra practice and pulling out a gun would both be eventful, though equally unsuccessful.

Been a good week. Just endured a 3 day power outage in 12-20 degree weather, curbed two of my wheels and had a guy from Lowes drop the generator I bought into the hatch and it destroyed my back trunk latch trim. Looks like that will cost about $30, but the generator saved my house so I'll give the Lowes guy a pass.

What generator did you end up with? I was looking at some the other day but didn't pull the trigger. We had a 4 day outage due to an ice storm a month or so back.

I didn't have a choice because this was literally the only generator available within city limits, but quick research didn't put me off:

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Briggs-Stratton-StormResponder-6250-Running-Watt-Portable-Generator/4727149

When your house hits 38-39 degrees and you can see your breath, you'll take what you can get. I honestly don't know why I didn't do this sooner...having your furnace alone during shit like this is worth it. The generator ran for 25 hours straight, and during that time it only used roughly 7 gallons of gas. On full load when the furnace was catching up, it ran at 20% load. Once the heat caught up, it ran at 2% and I will be preparing to run the refrigerator/freezer also next time.

Thanks. Luckily I have a gas furnace so it shouldn't require much to run the fan. I think I'd run that, the fridge, and the water heater. I put in an on demand gas water heater a few years ago. This would be perfect for that load.
