thanks for the help. I am assuming that there is no A16 service and its just the combination of the A1 and A6 services. Is this correct?

A16 means A1 service + "6" which indicates a rear differential fluid change.

Does that mean you had a B1 + 6 (rear diff fluid change?)

I just had to have my A16. I checked with an Acura dealer, and was quoted the cost of $189+taxes. I went to my local Honda dealer and had it done yesterday for $131 inlcuding taxes.

The A16 was as described by JMJ3rd, except for the Cabin filter change and headlight adjustment.

Probably cheaper to do it all yourself, but if you like the convenience, then try your Honda dealer - same parts, same service, better price.
