Cool iixLiam - Type R

So after 2 and a half fantastic years of owning my Type S it was time to sell up and move on to a new car. I test drove a few different performance hatchbacks including the gen 2 MPS and a GTC Astra VXR... both of which just lacked something, something which made me love the civic! So I stuck with what I love and bought myself and FN2.



My 2010 Deep Sapphire Blue Type R.

As many of you will know I loved my blue Type S and couldn't say no to a Type R which was a little bit different to the normal and as a bonus is quite rare!

Ebay got abit of abuse over Christmas as i ordered all the little bits (footwell lights, wind deflectors etc..)

It wont be long until I start working my magic on this one... watch this space!

Looks great Liam. I'd get rid of my 2.2 for one but as it's still running well for now and I still have my DC2 to restore, I have my hands full at the moment!

My plan (if I can talk myself into it) is to change to a Type R this year.
Problem is my Type S is a great wee car and hasn’t put a foot wrong in over 3 years.
I probably wouldn’t use the Type R as it should either

I've never seen one in that colour in the flesh, looking forward to seeing it. Congrats on the purchase and well done getting an LSD equipped one - still on my list of things to do haha!
