The 19 inch Rage are even worse than these. If you can get a fair whack for these on Ebay or similar, and I admit I dont know the market, I'd sell them and get the Honda Type R 18's that it should have or if not at least get a decent set of another brand.



I'll be burned for this probably, because people love replicas, but for me a CTR should have its proper wheels on and no silly Mugen spoilers. Its either a Mugen 20 or its not. Its either a so called UK Mugen 200, or its not.



The car looks lovely tho, aside from my stubborn views, its Milano and shining like Jack Nicolson
People love replicas, because they suit their needs obviously. Each to their own, but if money wouldn't be a factor, then I would of course buy original Mugen or brand new TE37 wheels. Unfortunately in this material world there is always other financial commitments, therefore Rota Grid Drift, Bola B1 or Inovit ST16 always will be considered.
I agree that 18" suit this car better and look good as well, but those Honda M200 wheels came with the car and are lighter then OEM 18" wheels, so no point of changing them for OEM, lightweight aftermarket only is the overall consensus of people owned both. Team Dynamics looks cheap on this car, from multispoke my choice would be OZ Racing Ultraleggera/Enkei RPF1.
Its good to have a forum where we can share our views and help get our cars better (or worse is some cases).

Honestly prefer grey/anthracite to black or bronze on Milano.

Wrapped the car battery the other day to hide distracting stickers and make bay look tidier. Also changed key for battery just in case - will see tomorrow if I have to go through learning procedure, as some had trouble to start the car after battery change.

Replaced OEM wipers for a new set, as they start to show ageing signs.


Cleaned AC system with aircon bomb and pollen filter replaced during which discovered red foot well lights installed, definitely they could be brighter.

Agree, gun metal looks nice but get the wheel centres painted to match or it will look daft.

That red LED looks like an after market add-on.
The original Honda is behind the blue cover to the right in your pic.

If they are functional then take the cover off and drill a 1/4 inch hole - then you will have 2 red LEDS.

That's true, will have to find the time to do it.

I will do investigation on this. Also wanted to fit LED indicator bulbs, but it looks like only way to do it without hyperflashing, is to install resistors. Which I don't like - don't to cut original wiring.

Had same problem so I just went back to original amber on the back, couldn't be bothered to even consider changing the front.
Here are some good LED rear/brake bulbs if you haven't changed them already https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153002090291

I will have to remove front bumper soon, so might do it, but I need more information. Strangely, couldn't find any information about repeaters converted to led.

Cleaned air filter to be ready for intake, it wasn't too bad thought.



Got a new horns instead of OEM which doesn't sound good. I had this set before and they are much nicer to ears.



Also managed to get OEM shifter modified to TEGIWA spec for a 3rd of a cost, which is always nice. Hybrid Racing bushes for better feel as well.

Had a bit of time and replaced coolant and brake fluid. Big thanks to my mrs for pumping the pedal for me. Wanted to flush clutch fluid as well, but need a strategy how to tackle this task first - nipple located just in the middle of everything and clearance not great.



Old vs fresh fluid. Wasn't too bad tbh.




Installed short shifter, HR bushings and Skunk2 gear knob. As mileage on my car is not high, the difference wasn't night and day, but gears has now somewhat "fixed position" feel, together with shorter throw it improves overall experience. Hope is not going to put too much strain on gear cables. Gear knob has similar shape to the one in EP3, so its not something I need to get use to. Aligned with 3 washers and ptfe tape to make it straight. Feels good.
