Thanks brother. your ride is just as nice mine is now almost 7000kms driven.
One brotherly advise for you and all Aspire 1.5 Manual owners, open the hood of your car and look down at the bottom of your engine. you will notice that there isnt any protection cover installed at the very bottom of your engine bay to stop any dust or rainwater seeping in from the bottom especially if you drive over a pool of water with a bit of speed.
when i took my car for the first mobile oil change, i asked them if they had any such cover and they said they do. it cost me about a thousand rupees but the plastic cover was perfectly designed for the city. i had it installed straight away. so my advise is to buy it for your car aswell. the honda mechanic told me that in the Prosmatec version the whole engine is covered from the bottom but in manual versions, they dont put in this cover. when i asked them why is this, they said they dont know but thats how it is.
i will try and take an image of this cover in daylight and post it for your reference. The technical name for this cover in the receipt was "Splash Guard, CTR". though it doesnt cover the whole engine but provides some cover and as a wise man once said, something is better than nothing. Image of receipt coming up....
