Danith's facelift Fn2 Civic Type R

To be fair I thought they were 200 new, I'm sure I was told through internet rumours.

Still, 135 for a fascia is harsh! But good that you can get them. Should be easy to sell on too as people were keen for the one I managed to snaffle.
Yes mate!

I’m fortunate as my car has the an iPhone Aux connection installed by the previous owner so I can connect my iPhone via the cable which routes through the cubby above the gear stick.

If I didn’t have it I’d definitely go aftermarket. I’m just not sure the £200 for the facia + cost of stereo and connect 2 is worth it for me.

Yeah no chance I'd have paid 135 just for the plastic! Was going to get an ebay one til this popped up for the same price.

@Danith seems I've bought D2R bulbs but taking the broken one out it seems to be D2S. Are they interchangeable in these lights?
Sorry mate just seen this. Tapatalk being crap.

D2r are for reflector style headlamps and d2s are projector I think? So they're sort of interchangeable but they'll dazzle if not matching correctly with the headlamp unit.

Glad I didn't wait for you, was bloody freezing. I'd have been dead 😂
The D2S that was there was definitely wrong, you could tell it was dazzling compared to the other side (which was a D2R). Both D2R now and sorted.

My neighbour had some scrotes trying out a skeleton key in his van the other week. Chased em off, only for them to come back last week and take the van with all the tools etc. Scum.

one of my mates is a joiner, he texts me weekly on vans been stolen and broke into, 2 of his mates transits have gone, never to be seen again.

im not on facefuck, but my mrs is on some local group thing, plenty of vans/cars and houses being broke into.

its certainly made me up my security.

edit. apart from the galaxy, the alarm keeps going off, so ive left it sat on the drive unlocked hahaha!

Where do all these vans go?

Wouldn't be leaving my tools in one overnight. Sounds like a ballache to remove every night, but it should help stop them going missing.

peel and steal is also a concern. takes all of about 3 seconds to do this, no tools required. t***s

Haha nice work, the joys of running a shagger! They are absolute w*****s though, I need extra locks on my side doors to prevent this. I remember getting smoked off the local window cleaner in a cab Sri, ladders on the roof and all, me in my 205 1.9 gti, made me look a right c**k lol.

Ahhh the 205 gti days were good. Remember getting my first one from Euxton and that old school cable throttle in a car that weighed the same as a tinned fart, felt rapid!

Noticed today I’ve got water in the boot! Common problem apparently but do you know how to fix it?
Think it's a bit of an old car prob. I noticed some on my ep and fn and I solved mine with trial and error. Rear light foam seals (ep didn't even have one on one side) and refit spoiler And foam seals (after removing for aftermarket).

Have noticed others have small cracks in the joins between panels and also a common place is the joins on the perspex lower window thing on the tailgate.

Best way is to stick the hosepipe on the tailgate and get in the back and look for leaks, if those areas above don't look obvious culprits.

Yeah I’ll do that this weekend. Exciting! Can’t seem to find a guide to remove all the boot lining and trims, have you done it before?
No, thankfully I didn't need to once the spoiler refit sorted it.

Looks a bit of a mission, there's a fair bit of trim in the back!

Check the fuel cap drainage hole (use a straw) and the roof seam/trim (where the trim meets the rear window.

I had the same problem. Cleared the drainage hole and re-seated the roof trim and job was a goodun...

Well that's me skint 'AF' for the rest of the pay month.

Gambled on a double din deal being sub 300 in the post Xmas sales and the sph da230dab actually went up from 315 to 390!!
So gave up on that and instead got a whiteline rear arb kit which were on offer (roughly 20% off) from Abp motorsport down in Crewe, not far from me. They also had the stoptech pads on offer from 70 to 40 so bought a set for spare when these wear out.

Then I get home and ebay have a 15% off deal til 8pm and the sph da230dab was in the offer. Typical.........so got that too as was a cracking deal that I doubt I'd be able to get again, after my last discount gamble. Good thing I don't go out on the lash anymore.

Also this textbook amg parked outside, perfection in estate/white/bbs combo

Good stuff!

You’ll have to let me know how you get on with fitting the new stereo! I’m really tempted as I’ll love DAB and the ability to play music wirelessly via my mobile.

In other news we pickup the wife’s new civic next week. Looking forward to driving it...

It’s a limited edition sport line. Basically the 1L Turbo (130ps) SR (auto everything) with nicer wheels, full leather and black skirts.

0% finance deals over the Xmas period so it was a no brainier really.

Won’t be quick but according to the press they handle so well. Feel so much bigger then the FN2.

We’re a proper Honda family with an S2000, FN2 and 10th gen lol.

Looks tidy that. Saw a white non R today and did think it looked a nice motor. Hasn't half grown since the original back in the 70s!

If any of you guys are after any specialist mechanical work then feel free to PM me. My best mate owns a garage and is very very knowledgeable. He does a lot of specialist fault consultancy work for a few local main dealers but predominantly works for himself. I know of no better mechanic and he’s done all the work on my FN2 and S2K. He’s based near Nantwich but his rates are very competitive.
