RS6, Aston, now MUGEN!

Just had it yesterday! Well chuffed! Its a Mugen 200 (number 012) Type R with Honda Sat Nav, Bluetooth and a Mugen Wing! Always loved the wing from the first time I saw it now Im very happy to have one! Also, as my last Type R was a non LSD version the handling due to the fitted LSD Ive got to say is far more positive! Im well impressed!

My mod list for early next year is - Tegiwa Exhaust, Manifold & Intake, FRS Stage 2 (ABP or TDI?), Mugen QS, Mugen Grille, Carbon Bonnet. Then apart from maybe a few more engine bits its done .

Those other two cars are my Dad's, obviously neither are as nice as MUGEN

Looking fantastic, will this be your last civic though? Can't see how you would get a better one

Unfortunatley though, the front bumper under the head lights does not sit flush, and there is a slight discolouration between the Wing and bodywork on just one side. As it was picked up from a dealer 133 miles away a revisit was never possible. Im hoping the bumper can be rectified locally and the paint possibly touched up but if not will never prob be noticed...

These are just little things that am sure can be easily rectified, hope it doesn't spoil the new car for you though, i know i hate these little things before they are fixed, always the first thing you look at when you walk up to it in the morning, even though nobody else would even notice!

I was planning to wait but this particular one I couldnt let slip, the mods will start in the new year and prob throughout 2012. I want it to be loud first!! Then handle better and look nicer after

Looks great, would love to see a Mugen wing in person, as I dont think its very photogenic.

Have got the same issue with the small gap between one of my headlights and bumper. Most likely due to a bent bumper support beam from a small fender bender... very annoying. Will have my bumper off soon to see what needs to be rectified to fix it.

In terms of the wing, in person its such a looker! Even in the understated black all over, I saw TP's from TDI North and wasnt convinced from a photo, in real life its so very boner worthy lol!!!

Im sure the fender issue will be an easy fix, just a refitting issue.
