My Legend's 20th Anniversary

Any suggestions what to do for my Legend ? I'm the one and only owner of this vehicle, and next month (Sept) will mark the 20th year I've owned my 1993 Legend. I bought her brand new and she still runs strong. I recently had to invest in some new motor mounts, shocks/struts all around, as well as expected consumables like tires. I think it may be time for new brake pads and rotors too. Always garaged, she looks like sharp and shiny. Very stock except for lambswool seat cover for driver. Just last week I got a shout out from some young ( 20 something) dude: " I Like Your Legend Man! ". My wife wants me to buy a new car but ... I guess its a love thing between me and my Legend. I hope my Legend goes another 20 for me !

ERG Clean

Thanks for the tip. I just read a bunch on cleaning the ERG System. Looks like a real pain. Are there any benign symptoms or test that indicate this work needs to be done? I would rather not if not necessary. My Legend has ( only) 145K miles on it ( in 20 years). I have it serviced by pros ( non dealer) I'll mention the ERG+ next time I need routine service.... I'm not much of a DIYer anymore.

I was hoping for a sexier tip like.... a set of Brembo brakes and rotors and brake lines. (lol ).

PS As for NOX output.... living in SW Florida we have no emissions testing. Any way to "test" if ERG needs service?

THANKS !

RON

EGR cleaning is a must, especially at that mileage/age.

I suggest an auto spa day - full detail inside and out by a professional detailer service or perhaps your local Acura dealer may provide such a service. Probably cost you about 10 to 15 dollars per year you've owned her. You'll both look and feel better afterwards!
