Update by David S. Wallens to the Honda Civic Si Coupe project car

Springtime’s nearly here, meaning it’s time to get the cars ready, right? We took our Civic Si back to the dealer for an oil change–at less than $40 for a synthetic oil change, how can we not? 

Also on the service order: We had just noticed a blown brake light. (Actually, someone behind us noticed it.) To date, this is the first thing that has gone wrong with the car. No issues, no problems, not a thing. After more than 8700 miles and several track miles, this was our first issue.

The dealer charged us $3.10 for the bulb but not the labor to install. Yeah, we could have just purchased the bulb elsewhere and done it at home, but we were already in there.
