#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.
#569 of 758 Sport Fog Lights as DRLs

Has anyone figured out how to always turn on the Fog lights when the engine is running? They would function as Daylight Running Lights and always be lighted. Maybe a switch could be installed to turn them off, when needed. Thanks..
#570 of 758 What do YOUR 2 original keys look like??
Aug 13, 2008 (9:56 pm)
Upon delivery of our new vivid blue, I see that one of the two keys has a shiny "H" Honda logo on it, while the second key is simply black hard rubber with NO SHINEY LOGO " H"!
Is this standard, or did the dealership key one of the two original "shiny H logo" keys and give me a copy?!
