My name is Ian, im 26 - From Merseyside and have only been driving a year lol!
I traded my 54 plate clio 1.0 in for a brand new 08 plate sexy as hell Millano Red Type R GT.
Just coming upto the 3k milage mark now, and I can already feel and hear a difference. Every day it just gets sexier and sexier!
This is how much a noob i am: I only just realised you could turn on the i-vtec dash light a few weeks ago
So why am I here?
Well when i baught the car, I said to myself - its nice enough, dont get into the whole boy racer thing and start kitting it up...
3 months down the line, I saw a black or bronze if you want to get technical Type R with the Type R badge on the grill....
That was it! I must have one haha!
Searched ebay and other sites and couldnt find the same badge...you can get close matches but, I dont want some true civic junkie driving past thinkin "look at him there with his fake grill badge" lol
By fluke - I found Civinfo....its a tresure trove!!
I cant stop readin topic after topic haha!
Ive already placed my order with Holdcroft_Honda and im looking forward to pimpin my ride haha!
I did somthing terrible today tho - i scuffed an alloy getting out of a parking space - god no!!! So now im after some new alloys...
Looking around everyone seems to think the Rage 18" are the way to go, but I dont know...there are some sexy as hell alloys out there.
My head tells me to wait till i need new tires and get a job lot with some new alloys, BUT I want to stay true to the Honda Type R image...and with not knowing a great deal about the world of Type R I dont know which wheels I can get with the red "h" on or weather its just somthing you can stick on to any alloy.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers guys and gals
