My civic R

Had the car for about 2 months now. It has far exceeded all my expectations.
previous car was a turbo astra which developed numerous problems and failed its MOT so i binned it.

Anyway as with every car i've had i cant seem to leave them alone so as soon as i bought it i registered on here and gathered as much info and wisdom as possible

started off with some new drilled and grooved front brakes and mintex pads. Made a good difference! found them advertised on ebay for 79 for the EP3.

Then came the double din install shortly after.

I then Ordered some decent mobil fully synth, some Redline transmission oil a filter, and a K&N panel filter from opie oils.
Delivery seemed to be taking a while so a PM to Oilman and he sorted that out quickly for me (cheers Oilman)!

Then the reversing camera! thanks to MrBozo for his excellent item, service and extremely helpful advice.

Then i decided to go for footwell lights from RickhondaR, again speedy delivery and value for money with technical help throughout- although it was the easiest job of the lot.
