    Thank you Mr Honda for the creation and sharing the dream.

  2. MIni Honda Meeting

    During this year's holiday a colleague and former internship student during my time in Japan contacted me on Instagram and asked for a drive with the NSX. In addition, one of his friends was driving a BA4 Honda Prelude and it was immediately decided to integrate him into the activity.
    All this took place just one day after returning from Slowenia but as there was no need for preparation it did not cause much stress.

    To avoid missing each other we exchanged telephone numbers first ...

  3. Coolant Tank - Replacement

    General information

    The NSX's coolant tank is quite different from the coolant tanks used in Japanese high volume cars.

Probably rather normal for Japanese but nevertheless a little challenge for a foreigner like me.

    These items were requested by the dealer to complete the registration:

    • One certificate of my personal inkan (stamp) for official registration at the office
    • Four inkan

  5. Buying an NSX in Japan

    As some of you might know, I was living in Japan (Tokyo to be exact) during four years from 2012 to 2016. Even though you don't need a car to go about your daily life and even to travel around Japan, I was nevertheless curious about the local car market.

    With some support from my co-workers I learned that the two major online platforms are CARSENSOR.NET and Goonet. Both of them are working in a similar fashion. It's possible to search based on keywords or manufacturer/model followed ...
