bigpmcd's FN2 Alabaster Silver

First post at civic info. Hey all. Came from the EP3 scene to FN2. Owned an alabaster silver for a few months now, loving it, Clarkson doesn't half talk crap.

Pics from first day of purchase and now.

Future plans, as in the next month are;

Mugen rep rear splitter
Mugen rep rear wing
Mid pipe straight through no silencer
Painted calipers red
Back 3 windows tinting
Carbon door handles and fuel cap

Old EP3



Day I bought her



Fitted some Phillips 5k diamond vision bulbs and LED side lights as first mod.



Wheels refurbished and colour changed to gloss black, huge difference.





Carbon wrapped fuel cap but not good enough quality I feel so going to get it done professionally.





Meet up with old EP3 (FN2 is exact same in speed if not quicker)

thanks for comments guys much appreciated.

Had the car tinted (back 3 at 20%)
debadged civic rear badge.
Pressed plates.
Painted calipers red, but don't like it, to much for me so going to change to silver with the 'type r' in black/white.

Couple of quick snaps from today.

thanks stevens! Was just curious to see what others thought of best caliper colours.

Thinking engine mods next on the agenda.

Very nice!

I owned an EP3 about 3 years before my FN2 and I've got to say, from what I remember, the FN2 is a much better car. (I loved my EP3 at the time for what it's worth! and still do rate them, but the FN2 really is the better car)

People that say the EP3 is better haven't driven or owned both most of the time to make a fair comparison!
