try DIY

Try doing the spark plugs yourself, changing yourfluids, and anything else you may want to try yourself. Don't forget to gap and torque the plugs. Get NGK's, a lot of guys of forum recommend them i think.

Hmm maybe I can help you in another way to get the needed tranny mount. I got this info what has been written somewhere in Honda forum. As far as I know tranny mounts too. But I'm not sure. Here the info... -Mike

Ever had a Honda/Acura that was smacked in the front and the motor mount bosses were broken off the engine? If this is the case you need a "Bolger Bracket". Joe Bolger has been building bracket kits just for this situation. He has shipped over 30,000 motor mount kits which use different engine bosses. I have personally used many of his brackets which fit well and look OEM.

For additional information, or to order engine brackets, contact Joe Bolger.

Check some other places besides the dealer seach the web and see if you can come across a acura/honda wholesale parts place. also auto zone and advanced auto has some of these parts too. I just trust manufacture stuff more.
ngk plugs is what I have and nippendenso is another good brand for spark plugs.. I had those before too.
$745 is high to me for a tune up what all are they changing?

place I take my car to get worked on sometime they use pretty good parts its a honda acura specialist. plus they cheaper than the dealer

Call Acura of Augusta 1-800-736-6818 for the mount. You need to stay away from the dealers unless they promise to give you free water skiing lessons using the boat you will be buying for them.

Seek out an independent to service your vehicle. Ask whether they will install OEM parts you provide (you buy at discount from source like Acura of Augusta).

You own a old vehicle. Most of its components are at or are near the end of their service life. Age is catching up. The maintenance repairs are going to be often and expensive as you cannot perform any DIY minor repairs. You might be better served with a newer used Asian auto having less mileage and age.

-rear tranny mount: try acuraparts247.com (christmas "sale" going on) or acura of augusta

-right lens case: im assuming you mean ur corner lights. jsut buy some clear corners from ebay for like 30 shipped and install them yourself. DIY is on legendtuner.com... its really easy, with step by step instructions.

-tuneup: 745 is too much. think i got mine for a local acura/honda specialist for like 250-300 or so, cant remember. basically they jsut change out all your fluids and plugs. (helps to bring your own plugs, ngk or denso, so you dont pay $15 per stock acura plug) BTW, i'd do my tranny mount at the specialist at the same time... might as well get it all done at the same time, probably a lil cheaper that way.

Find out where the other MD ppl go to. hope this helps. :)

Yea its a "sale". They sent me an email saying theres a special sale and on the front page it says "25% off entire inventory". Most of the stuff ive been looking at is cheaper: front brake pads are 35.xx instead of 40.xx, rear pads are 43.xx instaed of 49.xx and the nsx oil filter is down to 11.57 from 13.12. A lot of other stuff is cheaper too... except for the springs. :p
