Nighthawk black ctr gt

Hi Everyone

i thought i'd get a build thread started for the new car which i brought last month ive had a few EP3 CTR in the past but this is my first FN2 CTR

SPECS
2007 CTR GT
56K miles
FSH and one owner from new

i know the FN2 CTR gets a bad rep due to Jeremy Clarkson but i know they are a capable car and so much better to live with day to day basis than the Ep3.

Hi
i have a list as long as my arm ...same as you probably as for what i have done so far

Brakes were quite rusty when i brought the car so stripped the brakes down and gave them a good clean also repainted them gloss black to keep things stubble.

Also done the hondata airbox mod smoothed out the airbox and replaced the filter with a HKS panel filter ..,throttle response seems to be a bit sharper and a bit more noise.

HID headlights also fitted with led sidelights ....more to come...

well some things just needed sorting...i will be looking at a proper intake and exhaust myself later ...been looking at lowering springs too... Because the back end of the car is so high had some eibachs on my ep3 which were excellent so will be going will them again along with some 15mm spacers all round for good measure.

My fault 15mm wheel spacers all round so the wheels are level with the arches ...not only looks good but a nice bit of track for better handling once lowered ...

I originally bought spacers but never fitted them. Got some lighter alloys with a better offset that gives me 16mm wider stance anyway.
