My milano red type R GT

Well got my type R a few months ago and I love it. It makes my daily commute more bearable than it is and puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it.

So far I'm not added much modifications yet as winter is here but once it passes and I get some money saved up, a chip,induction kit,getting FRS and upgrading the splitters.

so far the only mods I have added is tints and upgraded my bulbs, still waiting on my diamond visions though

Very nice indeed, your rages look shinnnney!

Chip first, then exhaust, then splitters. Get the induction kit last

well that was quick, thanks for the comments.

yeah, I take some time to wash them but its worth it in the end.

as for modifications, definite chip but not so sure about the exhaust as I don't want too loud of a system. Will wait to see what people think of the toda system

Very nice!
The splitters will certainly finish it off well!

the plastic section was left alone as the finish wasn't a very good finish, many people have taken the same route as me. As for the chip, looking at the chip currently being sold by tdi-north or cpl but would like a mappable kpro

i wouldnt get a chip, id get a remap..
i think it was stella artois or some one else on here... and had a remap and gained throughout the rev range...rather than a chip that might get you 4-8hp..not worth the money...

No Chips or Remaps (well nothing to write home about) available for the FN2.

A few piggy back ECU's available but Hondata (replacement ECU) is the only way forward atm I believe. I'm sure this is what Stella had too.

Because it's the best colour.

NEEMSTER, if my mpg goes up anymore then I will be in the diesel club which I wouldn't be complaining about, I will have the best of both worlds

the chip I was talking about was the replacement ECU,if I was to get a supercharger then I would upgrade my ecu to a mappable chip.

Red is the best colour followed by black and sliver

Thanks for the comments

Yes the Hondata ECU is the one I ment too. It's great Ive just fitted mine. Totally transforms the car.

Will have to disagree on the colour thing though

Finally get to see some photo's!

Wish I had bought the rages when I had the chance. My custom splitters will make a difference tho.

Where did you get the windows done??
