Greetings from SATX! Just bought a 08 Ex, love it already! Bought it from my best friend, so I’m the 2nd owner. Learning the quirks of this unique vehicle. Anyone in the San Antonio area?

Welcome! Looks a lot warmer down there than Cincinnati. My son has its 2007 twin.

All maintenance up to date? Just based on the one photo, night be time to clear up the headlights.

I’m planning on taking it to my dealer to have a once over. I’m having issues with the blinking drive light intermittently. Yeah the headlights need some TLC. What would you suggest. I used one I thought was good on my previous vehicle which eventually got worse.

1st try Mother aluminum & Mag wheel compound with buffer.

If that doesnt get it the way you want, then do it the right way
with the wetsanding...800, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and then
a ceramic coating spray or applied.
Meguires has a good setup. Just search YT.

I've used Meguiars medium kit with good success.

Wow! That looks great fleetw00d. How long ago did you clean them? How well has it held up? My '08 SC is getting to the point I'll have to do something. I used a kit (don't recall the brand) on my '00 Civic back in '11 or '12. I seem to recall they got foggy again in about 6-7 months.
