thanks for the mansplaining—you are incorrect on all countsIdle adjustment? That's all handled by the ECU, there is nothing to adjust.
The cabin filter should last a lot more than 5 weeks, it is normal for them to change from out-of-the-package white to grayish after a short time so don't replace it for that. Loose debris like leaves can be shaken out and a portable vacuum with a crevice tool can clean between the pleats. This can be done every few months unless you live next to a coal plant or an active volcano. Replacing the filter when the time comes is a quick DIY so don't pay a shop for that.
Plugs if they're due can be replaced with OEM or an equivalent, "upgrade" plugs aren't needed and won't do much more than a new set of OEM's.
$1600 for brakes, cabin filter and plugs or...? It seems pretty excessive. Unless that's just Cali prices in which case, yeah, still excessive.Time for new pads and rotors. My car has 165K miles. Car could use new control arms and bushings but there are no parts to be found at present and no estimated date
Getting new upgraded Denso spark plugs and idle adjustment since the cat converter replacement. And cabin air filter is already filthy after 5 weeks. $1600 sheesh.
You got ripped off by the shop but at least they didn't tell you the truth. Sorry I mean "mansplain" it. They just took your $1600. I'll take your money too and I won't mention the ECU sets the idle speed automatically by itself, "upgraded" spark plugs is a rip-off game, and they probably would have charged you another two grand to replace other stuff you don't need but luckily it was out of stock.thanks for the mansplaining—you are incorrect on all counts
So my Bluetooth Streaming isn't normal for the rest of you? Man I feel bad! We had a 2017 Fit and this radio feels almost the same as that one. I thought it was just a normal mid/late 2010's Honda radio. Even down to the funky HDMI input.2016 the radios were completely different from the other years from what I have read here. The 2016 radio all versions had streaming for instance.
I found them at AutoZone for like $9 each. Spark plugs seem to be one of those items where people try to reinvent them and sell them as some magic device made of unicorn nail clippings or something.The marketers disagree, apparently rubidium plugs are better.
List on the OEM iridiums is nuts, around $40-50 per plug. I found them at Rock Auto for under $12 each.

LX is the base. EX is mid trim. EX-L is top trim. The "L" is for Leather seats(at least when we bought our Fit in 2017 thats the way it was explained to us). The EX-L had heated leather seats and Navigation.That is correct even the trim levels were renamed for 2016. All other years it was base, EX, ex with navigation. 2016 they are EX, EX-L with navigation and LX. Prior years partial leather partial cloth. 2016 and I maybe wrong the LX has full leather seating. I posted the specifications for 2016s recently in one of the audio threads. The lack of streaming on the base and EX radio has been discussed a lot over in the In Car Entertainment (ICE) threads. Here are the 3 groups of specifications for others for future reference. 2016 was a one year model with different radio, HDMI port, lane watch, different interior , push to start/proximity key, electric parking brake, wider track in the rear, Etc. Many parts from 2013-15 will fit others are unique to 2016. Even some parts are usable from all years.
