Sooo this is a bit of a downgrade from my Evo, but I needed something a bit more economical and with the price of regular unleaded fuel dropping think it's a good choice.
Went for the FN2 because I've already had an EP2 and loved it but these new shape CTRs are sick looking IMO. These cars get a serious amount of hate and I really can't work out why?? I think a lot of it has to do with that **** review JC gave it on Top Gear. Yes it's heavier than the EP3 and yes it does have torsion beam rear suspension, but it honestly drive brilliantly!
I decided to go for the lighter non-GT model as I really didn't need the extra stuff it came with (AC, dual climate control, cruise control, fog lights etc etc) because I don't believe any type r should have all that unnecessary weight! Anyway it's obviously a lot slower than the evo but it does have that old classic hot hatch feeling that I love where you can chuck it round a corner and power out the other side!
The car itself is in what I would say is very very good condition. With a few wee bits and a visit to PMG it will be sitting mint! Have a few plans to make this car stick out like a sore thumb and one of them parts has already been ordered
Should be a fun wee project!!
