    Log Sec Corporation, a CSC company. Pay is good, and benefits are better.

    No swaps planned, no performance upgrades at all are planned. Maybe a K&N filter, and that's it. I plan on installing keyless entry, fog lights, USB attachment for the stereo, a ham radio, and maybe interior illumination.

    Fun car to drive. My commute this morning was fun, this car is so much fun to drive.

    You're taller than the average American male. However, I'm 5'9" and it's hard for me to have both my leg-to-peddle and arm-to-steering-wheel length comfortable in my gf's 07 fit

    I am 6 foot and I felt comfortable driving them at the dealership. But I only would drive them around the parking lot so I really cannot say. I am trying to talk my Dad into buying one of these. His only real concern is being able to put his bike in the back seat.

    I was just thinking are these the first hub caps from Honda you don't have to take the lug nuts off to remove the hub caps?

    Well, I got the antenna finally. Now I dunno where to put it.

    It's glass-mount, so I'm thinking right-rear quarter panel, but I'm going to get a second opinion first. Maybe even talk to a couple other hams and some commercial radio installers.

    I went to the dealership tonight to price out getting keys cut/programmed, and the keyless entry programmed, and it's going to cost $150 for my current keys, and the two remote/key combos. I dunno. I'm going to have to think about it.

    DOne. A bike will fit easily in the back if you take the front wheel off. Maybe even if you leave the wheel on.

    Yeah, these are snap-on.
