I'm not there yet but I hope to be soon. I'm in Boulder. I'm looking for a Milano Red/Ebony 6MT no-nav. It's looking to be as easy as finding that proverbial needle in a haystack. Maybe by the '07 model year.
Has anyone worked with RSX Club? Apparently they are based in Denver and are Hondata dealers. Once I have the TSX I'm considering a reflash (& maybe CAI) but that's it. I've heard you need someone to 'refine' the reflash just a bit after it's done for best effect, and am wondering if they can do this.
exciv2000, thanks for including NM, that's my home state and it's a good one. Sparsely populated & dirt poor, but good nonetheless .
ClubRSX is located in Colorado Springs. If you need the reflash, go to TC's Performance at 59th and Sheridan. He is the only Authorized hondata dealer in Denver. He can also take care of all of your maintenance needs for any Acura/Honda at cheaper than dealership prices. He used to work in a dealership and he is the only one I trust with my cars. His name is Tobi. Tell him Scott sent you. If you need additional contact info, let me know. I have plenty of cards, website address, phone number, etc.
I take both my TSX and our Pilot there. He just recently did the 15K service on the Pilot, and he follows the Honda specs to a T, and checks everything the dealership would. The only thing he doesn't do is warranty work.
He also has a stock of parts if you want to buy something like the Hondata intake gasket, and he can get just about anything for great prices.
I finally got my Milano Red/Ebony 6MT no-nav. It's a great car, I averaged 29.5mpg on my first tank... I hope I can do that good once I'm through the break-in mileage and can drive it somewhat more aggresively.
Anyway - I was wondering if you've had experience with dealers in the Denver area. I was working through Flatirons (in Boulder) but also talked to a guy at Courtesy. I'm looking to see who won't bitch about a CAI and/or reflash. That's about the extent of the mods I'm considering (besides, eventually, wheels), so hopefully somebody around here isn't uptight about such things...
I average about 28 most of the time, even with some agressive driving, but I do get some highway driving in there as well.
I don't think anyone will bitch about the CAI or reflash, unless it causes a problem with your car and they therefore have to void your warranty. The chances of that happening, though, are pretty slim. I got mine through Mile High, and I think that they might be somewhat receptive to mods too but haven't really checked into it since I'm most likely going to leave my car stock. The car was running good today though and I popped the hood and the intake manifold was very hot, so I'm sure a CAI would help quite a bit, but I don't think I want to make the jump. The reflash would also be good but telling my wife that I can't drive for 3 days would probably piss her off... I did all my mods on my previous civic so I kindof got that bug out of me.
exciv2000, are you about to be a father? If so, congrats! My daughter (1st child) was born *today*, 9 hours ago! I'm killing some time while mother & baby sleep in the room - they don't need my noise. Good luck with the final months & delivery! We delivered @ Exempla Good Samaritan in Lafayette, they did a great job.
Yep, in November! It will be our first too, and will be a boy. We've already got the name picked out but don't have much else for the little guy yet. I think we are delivering at Exempla Lutheran in Wheat Ridge. Just an FYI, if you get Discovery HD, there is a good program on between 12:00 AM and 1:00 AM called "The Baby Human". I've learned quite a bit from that show. It's hard to stay awake for it, so an HD DVR would be best, but I've just got a SD DVR currently and it's not on the regular Discovery channel.
Saw ABP with Phase bumber going east bound on the 54 this morning. Just want to say that your car looks real nice man, I had not seen to many TSX's that are fixed up here in SoCal but there are alot of TSX's here in San Diego nowadays :thumbsup:
I hope this finds each of you in good spirits as we trek through a suddenly cool Fall. I for one think a more southern location is in the cards. Perhaps a mid-Winter trip to sunny, warm Austin, Texas?!
For the 6th year in a row MVP Track Time is headed to Austin, Texas for...
Hi, I'm new to the TSX club but I have owned my 04' TSX for about 6 months now. Anyone know about any meets coming soon? I'm from San Francisco and honestly I'm down to see other cars and meet other TSX owners too
Ok so who's had this done to their TSX?
Our 1st gens are a decade old.
I can't be the only guy that needs this done.
Where did u go?
Any issues since then?
OEM or aftermarket?
+rep for quick responses.
Ahh what the heck +reps for everyone!!
Does anyone have any recommendation for a really good shop? I've had an engine swap done to my '04 TSX since my original fried up. 3 days later it stalls on me and the engine icon pops up and once I try to start it, it cranks but doesn't start and a rapid clicking sound comes from below glove...
