My 57 Type S

Just picked this up today and loving it, been using the Rx8 for the last 10k and its a little thirsty, so the type s should save a few quid
I added the mesh grill when I got back home, (ordered it last week ready) fitted leather gaiter and Black "Type" decal from Gers not the best pics as I was out with the dog and thought I would snap some pics.

Ah yes, it'll been the gold Type R, had a Supra and another 4 scoobs since that one, lol. The Gold Type R went bang on me too

Me 2nd off last one was a champagne Type R, had a 2.5 lump in it, had it running 430/434 before I got shot. Was an animal like

Then went all sensible haha

I must admit I'm impressed with the civic like, a couple of little mods, had it remapped aswell, so running a little bit quicker than standard

A very belated muly. The sports grille makes a huge difference and knocks a good 3-4 years off the age of your car !

Gers is a top bloke, and one of the best traders on here. Can also highly recommend wanner69 if you're after some front fog covers.

Sounds like you're an old hand at this modding lark. If you're thinking of lowering the car and stiffening the suspension the Pro Kit is a good place to start, and this is the cheapest supplier I could find...

Eibach Pro Kit Federn Honda Civic (FK, FN) 1.4, 1.8, 2.0 Type R Tieferlegung | eBay

...would also strongly recommend FRS, makes a huge difference. I had mine done @ Grinspeed Motorsport, linky in my signature.

Sounds like a bit of a pattern developing...


...and muly and GraemeR, would be helpful if the pair of you included your vehicle details in the "About me" section, especially if you participate in the buying and selling threads.
