New SH

Hey all,
I just got an SH and have a couple of questions:

I need to change out the brake pads and I want to replace the stock head unit. Will the head unit require anything special as the stock head unit has some security code attached to it for the battery I was told. Or will it just be a strait forward swap?

I need to replace the pads. Any recommendations besides what you can get over the counter at the local parts store?

Does anyone have any leads on an OEM shift knob?

Thanks guys,

Pete

Re: New SH

head unit should be direct swap, the code is built in to the stock unit so nothing to worry about there. as far as brake pads it depends on what you are trying to get out of your brakes. personally i get mine from autozone because they have a lifetime warranty, but
I'm not looking to get great performance out of my brakes either.

Re: New SH

here is a shift knob, I'm sure you can find them elsewhere that was after about 2 min of searching.

Re: New SH

Thanks a lot for all of the info.
I am just looking for basic pads, nothing special. I just want this car to last. I am not looking to race it.

I searched quite a few Honda OEM sites and came up with nothing.

Thanks again!

Pete
