Of all days for it to rain. Today I had an appointment to replace my dash for the second time. It originally had two round spots of delamination. I got it changed in September and that one had one spot and a long groove h near the front. I am told they had the dash redesigned twice since the car came out. Hope they get it right this time. Thanks for the advice. Getting the oil changed also.

I have never had it out in the rain since I drove it out of the show room in April. This is the first time I have had the top up since August 3. All in all a very wet gray day!

Went out to the Berkshires on Rt. 2 Sunday. On the way back a brandy new Boxster followed us until it passed me in a no passing zone.
I passed him on Rt.91 going 85 (passed through a speed trap, must have slowed down in time-he ignored us).
Further down the road there is that Boxster again behind me. Followed me passed a few cars, then passed me illegally again.
Guess the only way around me was by breaking the law!

Surprised your dash hasn't got finger marks in it from passengers hanging on .

Seriously, what do delaminations look like. I noticed what look like a couple of dents on my dash over the instrument hump. Looks like someone has hit it twice with a ball peen hammer.

I was going 85 on Sunday > a beautiful day in the 70s (degrees). Monday it rained on the way to the dealers> I kept it under 50.

Last time I had the dash changed they broke a clip off the plate under the passanger side.
They are replacing that this time along with the dash. Any dents or bubbles should not be there. I called the national Honda # and they told us they had only 16 dashes in stock. They were not very helpful.
