    im gonna replace my cap and rotor soon. where should i order them from? id go down to acura but im sure that they dont stock it and would have to order it anyway. so i want to just order it online. i went to acuraautomotiveparts.org, but the site is down.

    i searched but dont know who to trust and what not. who did you guys order them from?

    I usually use the aftermarket parts from your local auto parts store. They work just as great not to mention the lower prices. There's also brands that makes them from Japan like Standard. It's cheaper too, if not then go with the Bosch. Works just fine.

    make SURE you torque down the rotor screw REAL GOOD. ive had a couple of rotor screws come loose and fall off while i was driving. the engine just dies and will not turn over. it needs to be very tight....at least check it for tightness after 100 miles or so. also check the tightness of your cap screws. they came loose on my crx after i had my header installed. probably came loose due to the increased heat.

    why pay for oem when aftermarket is half the price and works just as good
