Hello all,

I recently bought a facelift FK2 1.8 Honda Civic EG in black colour. I had the prefacelift FK1 1.4 in silver before. So basically, I am going for the Type R styling route. After a long time of research and collecting the parts that I need, the journey has finally started.
318729

318730

It started like this, honestly the car looks great with the red accents and facelift grills, but the look of Type R is way better ofcourse.

318731

318732

Started with taking the bumper off and installing the Type R headlights. It wasn't a straight swap. There were some adjugdements needed to be make on the existing cables in order to make the lights work. Thanks to my friend for this part, he is a professional in this job. And also this thread Head - Need headlight connector

318757

318733

Follow up, the Type R low and fog grills are installed. I also changed a new front garnish panel (without the red garnish trim on the middle). The look of the car has become more sportish, but it is unfinished. More will come in the future.

I ordered the complete FK2 Iconic Type R body kit. It comes with the front split, side skirts, diffuser and the 4 exhausting tips unpainted.

Because of the existing exhaust system on the facelift is different than the FK2 Type R, I had to make sure that if it was possible to customize the exhaust system to be able to connect the 4 tips. The answer is yes it is possible, but the rear end silencer have to be removed. So we tested the sound without the rear end silencer (unscrewed bolt somewhere in the middle/end pipe). Surprisingly the sound was not only bearable, but it made the sound of the car way better than before (And should be able to gain a few hp because of more airflow).

Right now I am waiting for the body kit I have mentioned before. When it arrive it has to be painted together with this spoiler, bonnet (got a few stone chips) and 4x wheel arches. More pics will come in the future.

Ps: all the parts are from either honda dealer or 2nd hand from allegro.pl.

Cheers,
Chrono

Anymore pics of this with the kit and exhaust sound?
I wish I had pictures to show. The production and shipping of the body kit has been delayed. I hope to receive it next week or the week after. Next week will the bonnet and wheel arches be painted first.

When everything is finished I will be buying new wheel alloys and tires. The plan is going from 17' to 18' borbet y glossy black.

Ahhh yeah my front splitter took a while when I ordered it. I like them wheels as look similar to the original ones. I've not painted my arches yet just never got round to it. But going gloss black.

Been waiting for over a month now. Personally, I like the wheel arches to be the same paint colour as the car.

Looking slick buddy, looks 10x slicker with bodycoloured.

You know what would finish it off and balance the sides, crazily silver (machined alu could also work) mirror caps to match the honda badge and alloys.

The red looks good but with going high gloss black front inlay maybe back to high goss black caps might also look good.

Thanks mate. Still unfinished but the improvement makes me happy. Good idea with the silver mirror caps combined with the honda badge. But I am going for the the red Type R Honda badge and high gloss black alloys as above mentioned. I might change the red caps into carbon look or black in the future.

Ay guys, a huge update. The bodykit finally came 2 weeks ago. The package delayed quite a long time because of the new NL tax law. I spare you guys the detail. Anyway I gave the bodykit together with my spoiler to the paint company. After the painting was done, first step was making the exhaust and putting on the diffuser.

The car is making crazy sound without the rear silencer. Can confirm with my feeling that it also increased a little bit hp, should not be a placebo. More pictures will come for you guys asap.

That is the real beast right there. I still need to put the red stripe on mine upfront and in the back.

I tinted the two windows in the back. I like the sporty mystery look now.

Next thing to do would be painting callipers, fitting the side skirts and the stripes.
