Danith's facelift Fn2 Civic Type R

Looks good mate! I hate emblems, is it really noticeable!? I’ve not seen a skunk2 in person but in pictures the emblem looks really noticeable.
Nah not at all mate. To be fair on a genuine skunk2 it's not that bad either. The oem polished up looks ok to be fair, but after using a weighted one it feels proper light and vague

Good to know mate! Blox Emblem less visible than the skunk?

Have the rainsports settled in yet.
I think they are such a good tyre for the money.?

Settled in yeah mate. They're coming off as soon as I get my pro race tho. Really good tyre for the money but I can really feel then flex, especially with the whiteline fitted!
Great tyre for the cost tho.

What are you going to go for next. With the 225/35/19's on mine there is zero flex and ive found them really good.
Just curious what your plans are.?

Already ordered some ps4 for it again. 225 40 18 xl.
The pro race are 18 x 8j et42.

Sold my oem wheels this weekend which still had good tread left on ps4 but the price ats are selling them at I'd have been daft not to get new for the new wheels.

For the money and what I actually use the car for(school run twice a week) I cant see me replacing them with anything more expensive.
Fantastic tyre in the wet im sure you'll agree.

Yeah mate they're quality. Handled the pm

So rapid delivery of my latest buy.

He kept reducing them on civinfo so i gave in as they rarely come up for sale for the fn2.

Done 8k so relatively newish.

In two minds whether to get the springs redone in powder coat or not? Or just hammerite them?

Not sure when they'll get fitted so no rush. Should finally help the harsh ride if I turn them down to soft. Also get rid of the remaining rear arch gap that's been annoying me.

Nice one! will be interesting to see if these sort out the ride comfort issues.

Are these still available to buy new?

Nice, had loads of Meisters over the years on my Hondas. Good quality and value i think. I would get the springs re power coated and then when you fit them get some coil over socks to protect them.

Just worried excessive heat might balls up the springs?

Are there any aftermarket sets that improve the ride but retain the standard ride height?

I think it would be fine. Are they not powder coated from factory anyways. Plus it would take a lot more heat than they use to cure powder coat for it to affect the steel.

Don't think so. Prolines like I have seem to be the closest. Drops the front 15mm but the read I'd say 5mm only.

Something's missing?

Yep you guessed it, STILL waiting for my pro race wheels to turn up. ATS guy was proper sound though and said I can go back for fitting whenever.

Wonder if my wife will notice them when she comes downstairs.

I’m moving shortly but still no garage. Although I’m mechanically incompetent so i’d have no use for one anyway.
