I'd have to go digging but im sure on the options list for mine the original woman who picked it spent £650 on the GP kit and £1900 for the 19" rage alloys.
After that it was a standard GT version with no sensors or camera's

Holy s**t, 1900 on the rages?!??!?!

The GP kit and rages set it off tbh. The only problem with the wheels (apart from the original price)with the diamond cutting and lacquer is the weather but when done the car what ever colour its in looks ace.

Ive always been house first car second for most of my life, you'll do it when your ready, but if your enjoying cars at the moment then there's nothing wrong with that.

Man maths. Refurb my own 18s and buy 2 new tyres, 400 odd quid. Sell the oems and buy new pro race in a better offset so don't need spacers. About 50 quid more.
Plus if I order pro race now I might get them in 2 months ha, so can split the cost.
Ep3 wheels I'll keep for winter and ep3 wet days.

It honestly makes naff all difference to rear view. Maybe lose a cm or so of the bottom of the perspex.
I like the spoiler blocking it to be fair, blocks the glare of those audi and bmw bellends with ridiculously bright headlights when sat on your arse on the motorway.

The split window is great for working out if some c**t is too close. Lights above spoiler, they are far enough away. Lights blocked, fine. Lights underneath, being a c**t

Decent deal at ATS for ps4 this week guys.

Just ordered 4 225/40/18 for 275 quid (with quidco cashback too - 295 without).
PayPal credit limit has also dropped so anything over 100 is interest free for 4 months.
Also might have placed an order with Rimstock for another set of pro race in 1.2.
Best get my other wheels on ebay, pronto.
I have a problem.

Well that's a bonus. Just had a call from tdi north to say I've won the raffle for the mugen short shift, from the competition on their fb and web page. Sweet!
Should arrive tomorrow.

Got to try it out first. Didn't like the shitty ebay 15 quid short shift so took it off and hoped one of these would come up used. Supposed to be quite good.
Only thing is cos they're so expensive with the exchange rate, it's not much more to get the awesome hybrid shifter unit so these never come up.

Will be doing cs at Blyton in June I reckon and defo another day early May.

Nice win! Congrats.

Anything left to do?

I could do with a new windscreen. Mine is hazy as f**k. Loads of micro scratches from the wiper.

Yeah, need to do something with it. It’s really annoying at night time. Might try and polish it first and see how that goes...

When are you getting your new steering wheel?

I’ve got a few things left to do before I call it quits and start saving for a FK2. It’s booked in to have some paint sorted on the rear drivers arch and front wing. I’m also planning on getting the wheels refurbished (shadow chrome) and then finally the double din installed. Once that’s sorted I think I’ll leave it be. I might be tempted to fit an LSD should the clutch start slipping but that’s a big if.

I have a mate selling an fn2 box with a quaife diff. He's only in Congleton, I bought my ep3 lsd box off him.

You could get 400 odd for your stock box. :)

I should get my wheel soon I reckon, probs be first week in April now after my hols. The pro race are apparently going to be done by mid April but I won't hold my breath. I've booked the tyre fitting for the end of April so fingers crossed.

Still not heard back from this bloke about the rear GP splitter.

How much does he want for it? What kind of mileage has it done?

Are you going to boost yours haha!?

Boost!? Don't swear at me!! ha. I sorta get supercharging to a degree, but turbo'ing one of the best (and last) n/a engines is criminal!

£900 he wants, it's off a car he bought to break for the JRSC. Had loads of goodies on it but all been sold bar the box.

Car dropped off tonight so it's stone cold for valve clearance service tomorrow morning.
Also getting him to check over a couple other things, think I'm getting the annoying subframe click so will sort that.
Clutch damper bypass hose going on too and a fresh fluid change.
Oil and filter and genuine rocker cover gasket.

While the scuttle is off I've taken the opportunity to get a spare scuttle off a breaker and wrap it gloss black. Not a perfect job but will look better I'm sure. Was gonna get it dipped but not sure it'd look a bit ott.

Apparently valve clearances needed sod all adjustment, so guess Honda actually did them previously rather than just take the rocker off and pretend, ha.

Service done for 2019. He also cleaned out the subframe bolts as per the Honda bulletin and doesn't click at all now. Winner.

Clutch damper bypass is a good mod too. Bite point is slightly higher, pedal feels a tad lighter, the bite point is more pronounced and just feels sharper through the pedal.

Also fitted the gloss wrapped scuttle on today, cleaned the bay a bit and gave the car a much needed wash and wax. Collinite > fusso KOG for me, it's so good.
