I posted this in another section of this site, but i'll post here as well since i see you all are talking about customizing.
"Has anybody done anything yet to their fit in the way of customizing? I bought a black 2007 base model about 1 month ago with 2800 miles. So far I tinted all windows except windshield, put in subs, amp, and sat radio, installed keyless entry (yes, the base didn't have it), upgraded to 15" black rims with performance tires, vent visors for all 4 windows, new shifter knob, racing pedals, injen 5" exhaust system, custom spoiler, and I have an injen cold air intake coming this week which will mount behind the front bumper. I def dropped some change on this car so far, but I don't want to look the the others on the road."
#560 of 758 Fit Armrest
Jul 28, 2008 (5:21 am)
Just bought an 08 fit and have been looking at the armrest you replace the entire console(300 plus dollars), but have seen another one that may work. I believe that 'havingafit' posted pics a couple of years ago. The one that he had installed in the back cup holder like the others I have seen, but has a moveable top which is essential for my wife since she has to have the seat almost all the way forward. I found one made by an Italian company(Wood company) and have emailed them about a local dealer or if not a local dealer, the cost from them. If anyone has this one, let me know where you got it. If I cannot find this one, I guess I will have to get the 300 dollar one and replace the whole console.
#561 of 758 Bugflector / bug and stone deflector for 08 Fit hood
Jul 30, 2008 (5:38 am)
I just bought a 2008 Fit. I always install the tinted plastic bugflector stone-and-bug deflector on the hood of my Hondas... i find they work well to save paint chips from the low nose, and thus, prevent the little rust bubbles so common on the edges of the hood's front. However, I'm surprised to learn that I can't find one ANYWHERE on the internet! Anyone have an 'unadvertised' source, or any source? I don't want to go with a 'bra'. Thanks.

will the hood deflector affect mileage in anyway?

Not quite sure. it looks like air can easily pass under and over it. Therefore, if it does effect milage, it should be minimal. I put on a new exhaust system and cold air intake which are both supposed to improve milage. So, if i lose 1 mpg do to bug deflector, so be it.

New to the forums - just picked up my manual 2008 Sport this Tuesday. Loving it! I just put in 1/2 tank of gas and got 31.8 MPG with mostly city driving. Pretty impressive.
To fitf4ife1... which brand of vent visors did you buy? Where did you get them? How was the ease of installation and how are they working out for you?
To anyone else... what is the story with the 2008 Sport and splash/mud guards? Are they really necessary? (I live in the Northeast, btw.) Has anyone been able to purchase/install them? I'd like to avoid another trip to the dealer/expensive OEM parts if possible.

While I was installing the bug deflector, I had problems with the 4 side clips popping out everytime I tried putting in the screws. I ended up sanding down the clips a bit to make them fit better as well as applying lots of pressure. They're on now, and look great. My next mission is to install these side molding strips I ordered.
