Only for sale because we are moving from the UK to Germany and this car is a right hand drive.


Auction: 13:00 on the 16th of July in Sandown Park Racecourse (close to London - Esher KT10 9AJ)
Viewings: 15th of July 15:00 - 19:00 and 16th 9:00 - 13:00
Online and phone bidding also possible.

Originally imported to the UK in 2008, we bought it in 2010, only one UK owner before us.
Some history passed on from that owner, full history since it has been with us.

~115000 miles. No issues with the engine or gearbox. The clutch might have been more smooth when the vehicle was new. The tyres are ok but could be replaced at some point.

The large hybrid battery was replaced (by a Honda garage) at the end of 2017.
So it is now less than 4 years old and the previous battery had lasted 17 years. We have driven the car regularly, so this has jogged the battery and kept it in shape.
There is an original Japanese radio, CD and satnav. However, this is generally not very useful in the UK due to the different radio bandwidth and also the front cover does not operate properly. So, for music enthusiasts, we recommend fitting a new system. However, this is the original system and was kept for that reason.

Bodywork: Good condition for its age, minor blemishes in the paintwork. Some plastic parts on the car have been resprayed recently as they had faded over the years.
Interior: There are no stains on the carpet or the seat coverings and only very minor wear on the floor mats thanks to rubber protection mats.
The "boot-liner in the hole" under the flap in the back has a stain that should come out with a very thorough de-greasing wash.
Comes with a folder full of history, service records, invoices, MOTs, including three original Japanese Books that came with the car.

I love that color! I wonder why Honda did not bring it to the US.

Thank you. Yes - the colour is great and it matches the light blue/grey seats very well too. This is a Japanese re-import. So, I am not sure where this colour was on offer....

Where did those floor mats come from? I could use some.

Lovely car, GLWS.

I've seen another picture of those mats in a thread where Peter was cleaning his. I think they had different floor mats in the UK.
