Anyone still about?

Just bought a 2011 Sport, looking to mod a little over the summer and would love to meet up with any of you!

I'm in Berkshire but work/photography/having fun driving takes me anywhere south of Yorkshire pretty much.

Doing some work on the car to migrate the Sprintex installation from piggyback ECU to KTuner.

Any UK owners removed the front license plate??
I'm having an issue with removing the front push-pin type located in the middle of the plate. Any help would be much appreciated!

I also dreamt of owning one from the day I saw one at a dealership but I was about 17 at the time earning £2.70 an hour as an apprentice :p

I've taken delivery of a Mugen-style spoiler which was colour coded (the colour is a shade darker than my car but whatevs) and I'm now looking at wheels & possibly a centre exit exhaust system & diffuser but money is tight as we've not long boought a house

I'm originally from Wolverhampton but moved some 8 miles down the road to Walsall. There's a CBP Z 2 mins from my work and a White one by my Mrs Mom & Dads with a black Mugen? spoiler. Other than that I've not seen many/any on the road.

I was lucky enough when I picked up mine CRZ that the previous owner had already done the centre exhaust that I was going to do. They even managed to get it to work round the factory rear bumper. Have a look at this http://www.crzforum.com/forum/new-member-introduction/87794-i-m-back-honda.html
In the words of Jim Carrey... I LIKE IT ALOT! She's a beauty!

Correct me if I'm wrong but your rear diffuser is part of the sport pack? I'm on the standard GT trim with the slightly crappy looking grey plastic diff.

Thank you very much. It certainly turns heads, but at the moment its what i call 'all show and no go!'. Hoping to start adding a few performance mods in the future with the end goal being the Supercharger.
The rear diff is from the Sports pack, but is also the revamped model with the li-ion batteries and S+ button. I think it meant a few exterior cosmetic changes - front and rear bumper.

Just out of interest how do you find your CRZ on Uk roads and your average MPG?

Hey guys!

Just purchased a lovely 2010 CR-Z GT-Nav yesterday and I'm in love with her. Been looking for one for ages when i spotted an immaculate GT in black, with Dynamic and Glow pack, so i just had to have it.

Words cannot express just how much i like my CR-Z. It's quite a bit different from my old Mk2 Clio Diesel that it replaced...

Often driving throughout Worcestershire, Birmingham and Sutton so if you see a shiny black one flying past, it may be me!

Welcome to the forum, but I'm from the US, so you won't see me in your neighborhood, but love the CR-Z just as much too!

She look's smart but I know what you mean, supercharger seems to be on everybody's mind on this forum :laugh:

As with all UK roads I'm forever avoiding potholes, but general comfort is pretty swell. My daily commute is only an 8 mile round trip and I tend to do roughly 100 miles a week so i'm not really giving it much of a run for MPG... I've done about 300 miles since I bought the car, its been in sport mode 24/7 and I'm getting 32.8 which is a far cry from the 55 I was getting from my Diesel Nissan Joke... but isn't that the point?!

Yeah, my daily drive is around 11 miles each way. Probably another half mile added just to dodge the pot holes :laugh:

In the winter i was getting around 41 mpg, but as things are now (at last) warming up I seem to be around the 45mpg mark which I'm happy as my last car was a Remapped Saab 9-3 with 240bhp and returned around 50mpg.

Dear CR-Z lovers,
As I'm new around here, I need your help.

I met my CR-Z from 2011 about a month ago and It was love at first key, So i took(bought) it without considering that it had no history nor a second key and the dealer didn't knew to much about it. I just did it.

So, for the helping part:
1. Wich oil is better taking in consideration the 67k on board 0W20 or 5W30?
2.It seems that i'm missing my "maintenance mindr" on board. Don't know if it was not activated or removed at some point.
Is it possible to activate it again?
3.From where can I purchase a second key at a resonable price.

Thank you kindly for you help in advance :)
