My 2008 FN2 Milano Red Type R

Hello boys and girls,

I'm posting some pictures of my Milano Red 2008 CTR. I bought the car a couple of months ago, and apart from some little things (Type R decals, Senna sticker in the windscreen, Type R grille badge - not installed yet) I didn't have much time to do something "major"...
Now I've bought Staffs Deltic's 19" Rage alloys, and managed to put them in place even after a 350 miles round trip to Stoke-on-Trent (my back still hurts)... It was my Xmas gift (from myself!).
I am also posting some comparison photos, so people can see the size difference between the original 18" and the 19" Rages. I hope you guys enjoy the pictures.

Next on the list:
-Grand Prix front splitter
-Xcarlink iPod adapter
-Brodit ProClip/iPod Touch passive holder
-painted calipers (red? silver?)
-etc, etc, etc...

Thank you Frostie! As I said, it's unbelievable the difference the Rages make! They're only 1" bigger, but it looks like they can swallow the original 18"s!

If I enjoyed the little "run out"? Let's change the subject... I still have your CTR's noise (or should I say BARK) fresh in my memory!

I couldn't agree with you more, coste1l... Now I can't wait to get the GP front splitter...

I changed from 18" to the Rages and I have to say they transform how the car looks. You do pay for it though with ride comfort!

Yes Steve, the Rages make the CTR look... evil!
So the (lack of) ride comfort is a small(ish) price to pay!

Thanks, Stormrider! The Rages are, as we say, "de p*ta madre"!
