Hey everybody I'm Adam, or as my friends call me TheAsian. I just traded in my 16 sport for a 19 Modern Steel 2.0T 6spd. Spent a week trying to get another dealer to trade us their Still Night Pearl and they absolutly refused to trade. So besides that I'm in my final year of college finishing up an Engineering Degree. I've been working for Honda for close to 10 years now, and I'm one of three Master Techs at my dealership. Other cars in my garage are a neglected 98 Integra, JDM ITR front end and engine swapped. Unfortunately, its sat for the last 5 years with the engine in pieces since I have been in school.

Plans for the car, Not really sure yet. I have new door visors sitting next to my box that I'm going to get on this weekend. I think once the factory warranty is up, likely putting an LSD in it.

For now I got a lovely little shot of the old next to the new.

Wow traded your '16 for a '19....did you roll any negative equity into the '19

I have a 2019 2.0T 6 speed in White Pearl, it's awesome, have fun!

Thanks, It's been a blast so far, should crack the 100 mile mark today. No negative equity, I got a fantastic deal on the 16 and a really great deal on the 19 (Honda employee). Pearl white was my number three color of choice. I love it but so hard to keep clean.

Congrats on the new ride. If you are wanting function rather than looks w/the door visors you will be disappointed. Unfortunately due to the way the windows go down (especially the rear ones) the ability to leave them cracked and protected from rain isn't as functional as they should be.

Great choice of color. Are you planning to get some sort of paint protection done?
Although Honda's paint quality is great and has proven to be so for many years its a great precaution to take.

I recommend XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection. You can go to XPEL's web site, put in your zip code and they'll list any certified installer in your area.

Thanks, I like the looks of visors, and as long as I can crack the windows and get a little air I'll be happy. Thanks for the advice, I'll check out xpel. I've been looking at places ceramic coating places near me.

Understood, me too... I like the look, and the reason I had them added prior to delivery.

Xpel has been getting some negative feedback lately.
If anyone here plans to go with Xpel, please do your research to confirm it won't be problematic.
Apparently within the first year they can start lifting.

I'm going to talk with a few companies local. One came highly recomended and they do both ceramic coating, and clear bra protections.
