    Oh Mike there are times when reality is not necessarily correct, even if it's right.

    The metaphorical, existential, metaphysical heft of this post is profound.

    That looks like a bargain to me and what a fun introduction to the car driving it home. If it's anything like any other Beat you will board the ferry with a very silly grin on your face.

    Hello Jc

    I'm afraid I haven't got a slave cylinder but I really enjoyed reading your previous post, I was there with you pulling the clutch pedal back up!

    That looks lovely main issue to address is that you fit it okay and that it revs over 7250 rpm.

    The biggest issue I've come across is wheel alignment. If it feels uncertain get it checked.

    Honda Beat Ecu illustrated far left third of the way down.

    It's very sad but I recognised the picture of it before I read the words.

    The best 50 I spent on my Beat was getting the immobiliser/incredibly annoying alarm professionally removed. I even used some of the miles of wiring that resulted for something else.

    You are totally right, they were all glancing blows rather than total thumps, a bit of motorway ballet and gather at the side. I was joining northbound from the M3, and the M25 traffic was slow and...

    Thank you. You're absolutely right, ultimately a car is a contrivance of metal and plastic that will hopefully save your life at some point, but is fundamentally disposable in achieving that aim.

    Accident

    After spending a fortune on making a new radiator and repairing the front to back pipes I was bashed into the middle lane of the M25 by a beer lorry today into the path of a taxi. I was spun fully...

    Hello Nas

    I think the only way you'll find out what the insurance is like is to ask for a quote. There are several Beats for sale at the moment so you could use their registrations.

    In Adam's first post on this thread he stated that he lived in 'the relatively boring state of Ohio'.

    With at least three Honda Beats in it, this cannot be true!

    That is very cool - good spot (wouldn't expect to see a S800 on Autotrader). If I had the money I'd bring over a couple of containers of them I think they'd fly off the shelves. Loads on Goo-Net.

    Both Beats I've had have had an annoying rattle at about 2800 - 3000 rpm, especially on increasing revs. The only cure is driving it harder so the period affected lasts less.
