Shane's CW FD2

hey guys! Been on here for a while but havent introduced myself. Im living in Ireland and I bought my FD2 on January 24th this year and i absolutely love it I was trying to import a blue one originally but they were going for crazy money. The guy i was getting to import was Al at flatoutimports, really sound guy. He owned this FD2 and gave me first refusal when he decided to sell. i went and viewed it and could not walk away from it! I bought it with 29700kms on the clock, currently 33000kms. It has the Koni yellow rear shocks, factory reverse camera and a K&N drop in filter. I swapped around the brembo pads for EBC Yellowstuff from my DC5 before i sold it on. Other than that i think its standard. I put in a Pioneer Appradio3 to keep me entertained. The car is spotless and hopefully i can keep it that way! Only plans so far are to get an FRSU and maybe a Flashpro. Heres a few photos hope you like!!

A few photos i was sent before i looked at it...




After a recent wash and wax...





And finally a recent trip up the Knockmealdown Mountains...

2-3 mths of saving I've gave myself then it's import time but if a nice low mileage facelift pops up before then you never know but yes I really do need to pull my finger out

Welcome along Shane. Are you based in Dublin?
I knew that was Al's FD2 as soon as I saw the pics . There is a few of us based in Dublin with FN2's. Would love to meet up at some point to have a closer look at that FD2. Haven't got a chance to see one properly in the flesh yet!
