New CTR owner in Leicester

Hi all, picked up my first Honda just over a week ago - silver 2008 FN2 CTR on 42k - and I've been on a forum with my previous Astra for a couple of years, so here I am!

Not got any major plans (moving in with the missus is stopping me), just spending some time undoing all the bodging and neglect it's suffered under its previous owner at the moment!

Poorly fitted HIDs removed and replaced with Nightbreakers, manky side stickers replaced, rusty calipers now painted red, new pads all round as their squeaking was driving me mad, Bury Bluetooth Kit from my Astra refitted (dismantling the dash was an adventure!), and Skunk2 gear knob fitted so far

Well if it's in the layby then it's a comfortable 2 car meet or a cramped 3 car meet

Thanks all!

Awesome, locals!!! I was on Astra Owners Network with my old car, there was only 2 other members in Leicester so I almost never went to meets - EM ones were always in Notts or Sheffield! PVS and Trax was about all I managed!
