    Thanks, I appreciate the rundown. That's a good point about keeping the engine for further examination/testing. I know that as a customer, I'd be happier with a brand new engine than an engine...

    Looks like pretty good fit and finish. The only thing I don't like about it is the cutout around the gear indicator - it looks like they cut it too close to the text, and it makes it look crowded.

    How large are these children? Lol. I went on a road trip last weekend, and I had my 7-mo pregnant sister, my mom, and my 17-mo old daughter in her car seat in the 2nd row. They had plenty of room.

    Well, I added a catch can to my CX-9 for a couple of reasons. First, my Accord performed so much better after doing a carbon build-up cleaning. Second, the IS250 I used to own had the warranty...

    Typically you'd have to buy the whole assembly. I don't think they sell the lenses separately because they can't guarantee that it will be installed to the headlight housing correctly.

    A leather repair shop should be able to handle it, but it's likely that you'll still be able to notice the repair after it's done. I'm thinking it'll look 90% better after the repair.

    It's not a catch can, it's an oil separator installed at the PCV valve. It basically catches engine blow-by and allows oil to drain back into the engine and everything else to go back into the intake...
