Description: yup, it's an EX, stock drive-train which means short gearing and plenty of power that I don't need. But it was the right buy at the time.

I only have a 4.5 mi commute, so the engine hardly get's warmed up with the EOC cycles. I know this is hard on the engine... but it's my only real option. Thinking about a block heater...

Current Mods: Engine Kill Switch
Upper grille block
LRR Tires KUMHO Eco Solus (so far about a 5-7% drop in economy over very old tires- only 1100mi on them so far)
0w-30 oil- never saw any benefit there...

Planned Mods: WAI
Underbody Paneling (probably not complete)
Smooth Hubcaps (maybe)

My Wife doesn't want it to look stupid, so I can't do too much...
