Thumbs up Mihail's FK3 Dream car

Hey everybody! First time posting here, but a long-time reader!

My name is Mihail, I'm from Bulgaria, and I just bought my dream car about 2 weeks ago

It's a 2006 2.2 iCTDi FK2, bought from Honda Bulgaria in May 2006. I managed to get a good deal on it, it had 83k miles on the clock, which for a 9 year-old car around here is pretty good
So, here's how it looked when I first got it:







As you can probably see, it had this little "dusty front"-look, and i was sceptical, as it looked kinda like it had dust inside the headlights. I managed to give her a good clean and went to have the headlights polished, so the problem was soon gone:



After that, I changed the knob gear, as the old one was pretty worn out:



I also changed the clutch cylinder, as it had the annoying squeaky sound, which was driving me insane Thank God now it's all smooth and sound-free

Now the car feels and drives a lot better, it's a beast on the highways, i managed to get 44 mpg on the way home after buying it. So i'm pretty chuffed about that.

My plans for the future include replacing the speakers (atleast the front ones), as the quality is worse than I expected, maybe changing the front grille (i'm still thinking about that), and just keeping it nice and simple basically. I'd like to change the armrests, both the driver's side and the passenger's side, as they are also worn out, or maybe wrap them in cabon foil, i'm really not sure..

The weather is quite bad recently so I'm waiting for a sunnier day so I can wash her well and snap a few pictures with my better camera.

Cheers!

Welcome to

Some TLC has nicely brightened up the front of your car. A grill change would help lift it further

Enjoy the torque of your starship

Lovely colour that, looks a tidy motor, especially now you've cleaned it up.

Yeah mate, I plan to get matte black Hole`y Sumo vinyl for the back + for the break lights, once I change back to summer tyres I will plastidip the wheels in matte black
I will also change discs and pads in the near future
I was considering changing the grill, but figured I'll keep the oem for now

Looks good. Does it still reflect a lot of light?

I wouldn't say a lot mate, it's definitely less than before, but because of the holes in the vinyl, light is still easily coming through

Thanks mate!
I remember wishing I had this car when i first saw the commercial ~ 10 years ago.

Long time since then, and when I was choosing a car initially i was going for a 2004/2005 Audi A3 2.0, but then i figured i should put a bit more cash and just get the car i wanted for so long..
Next thing is saving up enough money so i can mod it as much as i want

I agree mate! There are a lot of curvy nice roads,which give a huge amount of pleasure to drive on

I do have a lot ot plans for it indeed, the only thing limiting me for now is the funds Just moved in with my gf in a new apt. so the car is not my 1st priority unfortunately.

BUT I just ordered 5 cans of black plastidip spray, which i plan to use in the spring, when i put my summer wheels back on, and i'll also dip the fuel cap and maybe the door handles.
I'm also looking at purchasing a type-r rear spoiler (maybe in black, as i plan to have a gray-black theme going). And a grille swap is also a plan for the future. Those are really the main things I'm thinking of, other than servicing and the regular stuff.

Looks nice mate, interested to see how a black type-r spoiler would look on a grey civic as mine is the same or a similar colour and eventually I'd like to get a black spoiler with front and rear GP splitters

Little late to the party, but I got my Mercedes bootlid gas struts today, they are really nice! I'd say a big improvement over the old ones!
I also got my sports grille from cox delivered today, so next week I'll put it on

Great, no more bumps on the head for you then

The grill will take years of the car and make it look more up to date (IMO).
