Benjy's alabaster FN2

After having my R for a year now I thought it was time to post a few pics , one from the day I picked it up and one I took this afternoon.
Looking on this site and seeing what people had done to their cars soon had me wanting to change a few things... and I did.

Carbon fibre door handles and cap cover
Black mirror caps
Pressed plates
Civic badge removal
Various bits carbon wrapped
Alloy referb in gloss black
Tegiwa wheel nuts
Fly eye on the front and rear lights
Footwell lighting
Interior LED lights

I think that's it although I may have missed something !
Next step might be Hks and/or Miltek/martelius just not sure how the neighbours will take the 5.30 am wake up call......

Hey mate thanks, springs could be a good call but would I need to have a FRSU done and hadn't even thought about spacers.... got a feeling I might be spending a bit more than I thought....

You don't need the FRSU but if you do get springs/spacers it's definitely worth it, such a noticeable difference.

I waited until ABP Motorsports Christmas sale to pick up mine mate, there 30mm springs are cheaper than the 15mm drop but I was to scared to go that low.

There something to think about mate, suspension and brakes in my eyes are the main issue with the fn2.

Thanks Dogfish, I got the caps from Cox motor parts I think they were about 60 quid.
