    So I bought myself a JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA........

    ....AAAAZ.

    We needed something more dog friendly, I tested a bunch of candidates, totally surprised myself when I found the Jazz the best fit.
    Picked up this one for a song (has a few minor dents and scratches, getting a mate to sort them out on the cheap) complete with some rather *cough* ricerish additions.





    Red badges are good for an extra 50 HP, Faux Carbon Fibre Vinyl bonnet wrap reduces total curb weight by 200 Kg.




    Proof pic, because I for one am sick of phoney try hards on the internet pretending to be Honda Jazz owners.


    The main motivator for the purchase:




    The amount of space in the back of these things is ridiculous.

    Pros:
    Engine revs up REALLY fast.
    Gear shift is amazingly good.
    Space.
    Comfort.

    Cons:
    The juries still out on this variable electric steering.
    Thats about it at this stage.

    You forgot naff steelies and hideous carbage-fibre vinyl on the bonnet under Cons. Please tell us all that you plan to change those before posting any more pictures?

    Vinyl's on the way out when I get the panel dude around, steelies don't bother me all that much so they're going to stay for the time being.

    Nice car, I've always had a soft spot for small Hondas and this one's no exception.

    Steelies are always better than ricer aftermarket alloys.

    Love the Jazz, it´s such a shame they are almost exclusivly driven by the elderly here. Design is quite modern inside and out, the quality is good and the practicality is awsome.

    But ... that pretend-CF bonnet-wrap-crap has to go ...

    Back story:
    In Perth, it is very common for Indonesian/Malaysian/Singaporean students to come over to study at university, buy a Honda Jazz new, then sell it cheaply before heading back home after completing their studies. When the owner is male, they nearly all come head to head with some truly awful customisations. This one was lucky to get away with only red badges and shitty vinyl.

    If you have an old man's Mercedes and beard to match then yes.

    Some second hand OEM alloys would be fine if you want to avoid the ricer look. Most Jazzes in the UK have factory alloys and look fine.

    Of course. I was merely stating that the steelies aren't half bad, and that it could be much, much worse. Besides, the Benz is now almost exclusively being driven by my wife.

    Actually, a lot of people are putting steelies on their Fits here because of a rash of thefts of alloys. The steelies in this case go with the car. As the only Fit owner on FG who actually admits it (until now), I highly approve. Get rid of the wrap and carbon fiber bullshit, though.

    Is this an '09 or '10?

    Wish there was an '08 available to you. I personally think they're better-looking, and the interior is far less playpen-like. Yeah, they've got a little less power, but you still have to live with those can-operate-with-mittens controls. If you can stand that, the trade-off for lower mileage is worth it. Still, you own one, so welcome to our little club of two. The dogs get honorary membership.

    Well, yeah, but I still don't want another Fit owner to have to live with this abomination for very long. The ricing isn't your fault, but it's now your responsibility to rid the world of it with extreme prejudice.

    When I pulled this up on my smaller screen, the thread title was:
    "So I bought myself a"

    And then, when I mouse-over-ed the thread title, it continued with:
    "....AAAAZ."

    I was confused...

    Yes my attempt at bait and switch humour was thwarted by the forums software.
