  1. Thanks for your support @shadow79; appreciate that brother.
  2. That's correct if someone buy a complete new assembly with mirror. But I am asking if someone is interested to buy only the inside mirror and not the whole assembly, is it separately available new aftermarket?
  3. And how about the price of inside mirror only if, by chance, one breaks it while un-mounting?
  4. @shadow79, is AED 315/- price for whole mirror with assembly or only the inside mirror? A couple of months ago, I inquired by calling a spare parts shop - the mirror with assembly cost AED 850/- in Sharjah.
  5. @shadow79, yes it is with auto fold with press of a button.
  6. @shadow79 any recommended workshop for this paint job? and any estimated time would they take?
  7. @shadow79, you are absolutely correct with the vital checks. I have actually made both checks already and there is no smoke in either case. I assume I got the oil level reduced bcoz of long duration i.e. 6 months use without a change.
  8. @shadow79 There is no smoke at all from the car. @Fuad, it might appear after completing half of rated oil mileage.
  9. The Castrol 5w-30 I tried was to be changed at 10K KMS but I found it decreasing oil level too. I am using Adnoc Voyager Silver Semi-Synthetic 10W/40 (a bit yellowish in color) in my vehicles since 2012 and don't have any complaints in any other car even if I hit a 100KM more than the scheduled mileage. So, I don't think changing oil to HONDA Engine Oil would make a big difference.
  10. Thank you guys; just to respond your queries that there is no leakage, I tried Castrol 5w-30 grade earlier but it got reduced too, oil reduces around more than half a liter. If it is normal in every other Honda, then it's fine - I can live with it as I don't face any other issue. I 'll take care of changing it a bit early.
  11. Dear Friends, Honda Accord 2012 is reducing engine oil - this is what I was told upon last oil change from Adnoc Lube Sharjah. I use "Adnoc Voyager Silver Semi-Synthetic 10W/40" which is rated to stay for 7000KM. My vehicle took around 6 months to make it to 7000KM after which I went for oil change. Additional FYI, that my vehicle recently passed RTA test and there is no smoke what-so-ever from the engine. Compared to Toyota Corolla 2009 (my last car), I also feel that my Accord 2012 is bit sluggish at start when take off at a signal but later it's good. And I heard from mechanics that initial run of HONDAs are always bit slower than TOYOTAs. Any recommendations on how to deal with this engine oil reduction?
  12. Any idea where from can we buy only the glass instead of whole mirror assembly?
  13. @shadow79 I heard this glass doesn't come separate; you have to buy the whole assembly with glass which is expensive - like around AED 850-900.
  14. Really, a great supporting community. I just joined back yesterday after a long break. Thanks guys
