My brother will be moving to Germany in September - thought I'd have a look at the local Honda scene before I visit. Plus - it makes picking up used EDM parts a lot easier. :)

Hi,

where exactly do you live? We spent our honeymoon in Canada, made a trip from Calgary to Vancouver.

Canada's absolutely adorable. Never felt so good.

Well, that's the first I've heard that car covers are available in Canada. I guess I can ask at the dealer... I am not hopeful, though.

I'm in Eastern Canada (Ontario) right now.

EF9? Marco the EF9 wasnt released in Canada! And why are you looking for EF9 tails - you just have them installed http://www.civicvtec.org/forums/Smileys/default/cheesy1.gif Or are you after some USDM tail lights?

Oops, yes, lots of USDM taillights here. They will probably cost me about $50 at the junkyard. So, add shipping to Germany, plus my time ... what is a reasonable offer?
