Check for clutch and timing chain being done. Could be looking at £1200 for those two if required.
Not massive miles thankfully. All quite local work but there is some travelling involved for daily work but nowhere near as much as i do now. Mostly town driving thats the only thing that makes me wonder about the FN2, ie the ride etc.Ads I'm all for the honda but what does your daily commute look like in your new job ?
Il be looking at moving soon and il be doing much more city driving, with city driving in traffic etc the FN2 is not the best tool. However the Honda trumps the BM in reliability.
All depends on needs and situation. Currently it's a want more than a need I take it? Be patient type r values on fn2 look low at the moment. With covid the economy etc I'm sure cars won't be in short supply.
I know several people looking at selling their cars owing to working at home more and getting no use of their cars
As much as I like my type r considering my commuting I may be looking at going back to auto but I'm in no rush
A higher milage r look at if the clutch been replaced, valve clearances done & general servicing obviously.
Once lockdown lifts and things settle if I were you I'd test drive a variety of cars to pick what's right for you
I wonder If going for one with some work done is better way to go actually. As a bit of an update I managed to get out and see the one I was looking at online today while things were quiet.Flashy do you know if the timing chain is checked at the point of doing vavle clearances?
I'm aware of those people tend to do the FD2 delete at the time to save on labour
Ads I'd budget around 500/600 for the timing belt alone
If your set on an FN , why not get a slightly older model that's had some work done ?

This one has decent milage, brembo 4 pots, nice rims, eibach springs (,their comfy had them before) & HKS kit for
£3,350 or best offer is not bad
Yeah it doesn't have an LSD however you could save up and get an MFactory or Wavetrack diff down the line if you wish and sort the minor bits out as and when
At that milage you got time to sort the chain and other bits etc rather than have more outlay
Seller reckons the brembo kit alone is 1k, effectively your buying a 2k car , sell yours to recoup some cash and it won't be that bad
