Hi from Sunny Scotland

Glasgow to be precise !

After many weeks deliberation and a few test drives, I've decided to take the plunge and go for the Type R. I was interested in a few cars including the Evo X which is awesome to drive if anyone gets the chance, but at the end of the day the deal I was offered on the Honda was too good to refuse.

I'm actually making a good sum of money by selling my existing car and changing over, which means I'll have some spare cash to put it through a few upgrades as well, as well as boosting my bank balance, so couldn't say no.

Car is about a week away, and I'd just like to say thanks to all on this site for their informative posts. The amount of info on here is incredible ! It went a long way to helping to tip the balance in favour of the Type R over the likes of the Focus ST and Leon Cupra.

Anyway, hi folks - its good to be joining you

A few miles outside Glasgow, near to Cumbernauld.

Not got a photo yet I'm afraid, just ordered the car so it'll be another week or so by the time it arrives.

Whats the best ECU remap to get ?

I'll change the exhaust to a Milltek (can't argue with 399 fitted!) and remap the ECU after 2k miles, not sure what else I'll get up to yet, maybe an LSD and upgrade the brakes and suspension. And a geo setup for the track, and I can see a few days out at Knockhill and Oulton Park for me next summer
