    My Honda Accord Euro L doesn't have the "euro" badge, only the "Accord" badge.

    It does bug me but not really enough to order one and stick it on.

    I took the 2.5 turbo bits of my stickers off my car lol.
    Just a 20DE bro

    Someone replaced the badges on my Fuga with Infiniti badges. You can only tell it's a 450GT by looking at the exhaust as the model badges are gone too. /shrug life. I kinda like the clean no badge look on it. I'm a bit of a poser by proxy, I cbf restoring the badges to Nissan ones.

    I'm pretty sure my mates one came in to the country with Inifinti badges on it too.
    Maybe they were sold like that in Japan?

    Nah, they're Infinity M45 in the states, Fuga 450GT in Japan. USDM spergers like the Nissan badges, JDM spergers like the Infinity badges. You can tell by the Nissan light plates in the door sills that mine came out of the factory a Nissan.

    Maybe the last one didn't so I stuck Sti badges everywhere. Pretty much added at least 20 points in street cred

    I prefer a clean/de-badged look myself. I would prefer someone underestimate my car than over estimate it.

    Another one.

    Gotta love reading these stories about numpties blaming everyone except themselves for their own mistakes.

    Yeah I lol'd. Good job on saving that $6 at the pump.

    I've seen 2 in the media now, both VAG cars. Don't get me wrong it's not the cars fault, it's the type of people that buy them, more concerned about looking luxurious and/or with money than caring about care and maintenence, it just seems to be the "type"

  16. Post
    It's why those cars do just over 4l/100km.
    Lots of boost and a lean mixture.
    There are 2 sittings at Simon's workshop ATM for the same reason I believe lol.

    I'm sure it happens a lot, it's just always that "type" that end up in the press blaming everyone but their own negligence

    Are they imports? Japan didn't use the Euro badge because they didn't have to differentiate between the 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder accord models.

    Problem is a lot of the cars that are recommended to run on 95, have been fairly resilient and survive on 91, although would run better on 95. Then along comes something like the 1.4 TFSI which is pretty damn sensitive to the fuel grade it runs, and bites these people in the arse.

    Its a hard lesson to learn on a little bit of self education, some are trying to argue its unreasonable to know these things but I've always checked what fuel is appropriate. My station wagon is a 1jz-fse, its non turbo, still needs 95 because its a high compression motor that's meant to run lean for fuel economy, 91 won't kill it but you'll get worse fuel economy and pinking.

    Its a bastard buying a nice 2nd hand car in NZ sometimes, previous owner could've run it on the wrong fuel all its life and you're inheriting a ticking time bomb.

    Most of the current Mazda range (everything aside from the MX-5 I think) recommends 91 or higher and will run just fine on 91. This includes the turbos too.

    Yep the CX5's and CX9's all recommend 91 from work, including the turbos.
