I have an E61 as well. For awhile, the TSX HFL would answer the call and then transfer it back to the headset. Which was frustrating! Finally, I deleted the profile on the TSX and on the E61 and paired them up again. It has been working well since. My thinking was perhaps, there was a corruption of the profile, if that is even possible.
I have also noticed that if you answer a call using the HFL system and then transferred it to your headset the call would go through fine but after that there would be issues in receiving calls with the HFL. At times, the system would say the phone is busy when it was not or would indicate that it could not find the phone when the bluetooth was on.

Thanks. Thats a good point i guess. I will try to delete my profile too and see how it goes.
#45 of 96 Bumpy ride question
Dec 16, 2006 (3:29 pm)
Many cars with firm suspensions have bumpy or choppy rides, which is due mostly to the tires because they have stiff sidewalls. By changing to a tire with softer sidewalls most of the choppiness is eleminated. And if the owner buys tires with a smoother tread pattern the car will ride quieter. You will be amazed how much difference it makes.

Tires are a start, but sidewall stiffness, spring rate, and rebound dampening all interact to give a car a certain ride quality. Change one without addressing the others, and you'll probably end up with degraded ride and handling.
Either keep your car as the manufacturer intended, or purchase a complete tire & suspension upgrade from a reputable company that researched and tested the combination.
Honda's A-Spec kits, Comptech, H&R, Eibach, and others sell complete setups that are tuned specifically for the TSX. In many cases, handling will improve will little or no loss in ride quality (sometimes you can even improve ride quality AND handling).
#47 of 96 tsx-one month report
Dec 17, 2006 (4:33 am)
had my milano red-ebony int.6spd with nav. l month today. It has 5,236 miles of mostly highway driving. The only complaint is the paint seems to chip very easy- caused by other vehicles or mostly truck tires throwing stones. I love the 6 speed transmission. I hopefully will be able to continue driving manual till I can no longer drive- do not like automatic.

I had Milano Red too. Yup, paint chipped very easily. My hood was littered with chips after 2 years of Pacific NW driving.
If you don't have too many chips yet, consider repairing them and installing a "clear bra."

thanks for the advice but I have heard that the bra creates more problems than it is worth. You have to make sure it stays dry underneath it and other things

You're thinking of a conventional leather bra.
Clear bra is clear plastic tape that is cut to fit the front bumper, headlights, and the first 6 inches or so of the hood.
It is adhesive and never needs to be removed. Moisture does not get underneath it.
#51 of 96 TSX-Neck/Back Pain
Dec 22, 2006 (10:25 pm)
I have had my beautiful TSX for just less than a month and have approx. 300 miles on it. Unfortunately, I began experiencing a great deal of neck and back pain for the last week and a half. I feel a lot of vibration in my neck while driving on city streets. I have tried numerous seat positions and have tried not to be confined by the narrowness of the seats. I am 5'5" and not a big person. Any ideas? I did note that one reader mentioned his back pain,as well.
#52 of 96 New 2006 TSX 6-spd MT -- Is "high pitched engine whine" normal?
Jan 01, 2007 (12:44 pm)
Hello all -- I just picked up my new 06 on Dec. 20. I read messages on this board before choosing my TSX -- thank you for all the posted info, experiences, and tips. It really helps.
I am enjoying the car -- I'm still protecting it from the elements so I just have about 200 miles driving experience in it. Everything is perfect thus far -- Headlights are amazingly bright, the 6-spd MT is a pleasure, my iPod is working in the aux input, XM radio is great -- the car drives and rides like a dream.
One question for other owners -- when driving in higher gears at 40-60 mph the engine makes a moderately high pitched whine sound -- is this normal? I presume the sound is normal for this car -- I like the sound -- I just want to see if it is normal for others.
Enjoy your TSX's -- Happy New Year -- I'm looking forward to driving my TSX in 2007.
