The wheels suit the car quite nicely, but can't say the same about the pretend Type-R badge, sorry.

What does the exhaust sound like?

Won't people notice that it takes you about half an hour to get to 60 when they're behind you looking at the fake badge?

...Because mot people will know that your car isn't a Type-R.

I really like the front spoiler though, is that Honda's own? And how does the new exhaust sound?

So DanKo, your car looks very cool, I really like it!

But why didn't you buy the i-VTEC engine?

LOL

I wondered when this sort of thing would happen

someone 'badges' their car, and people jump in


hey - I wouldn't, by why shouldn't he?

it's not like it was up for sale as a Type R - what harm is it doing?


Just my 2p - I've just seen this sort of thing kick off elsewhere.
It's very easy to pass a 180 TT off as a 225, and owners were getting well wound up over it.
"Devaluing the brand" was the most oft used cry.
And when someone put an RS badge on.... blimey!
And Audi don't even make a RS TT

Live and let mod

I think the only thing I do like are the tints. How heavy is the tint, cost etc. Does work very well with the Blackk. Could you not have got the storms, which IMO opinon, again on NHB look awesome?

I guess it is common place to make a 'lesser powerful' car look more potent for the younger drivers. Certainly round here, they have exhausts the size of bin lids, great at 2am (not !!) - Carlos Fandangio wheels, and picnoc tables for spoilers etc. But, there cars are allways immaculate, I just wonder how they afford it..................Oh yes I remember, no mortgage, no bills and no kids.... LOL

Danko, You go for it mate, if you are happy that is all that matters.

Your car looks lovely. The tints and really nice rims. (sorry al i have been watching to much pimp my ride again...) Badge or no badge it looks good. If you like it that is what is important.

To be a hypocrite though I wouldn't have the badge...but as I said if you like it

Just a quicky though how much of an effect as a % increase is this haveing on your insurance? (don't need the quote in £(none of my bussiness as I am sure You feel) just the percentage increase) thinking of having a pop at my Civic soon and just wanted an Idea.

Cheers and happy Cruising
