I have read the forum rules and will follow them to the letter.

I am located in Solihull and am selling my beloved Type R. Bought last year from DT Performance. My circumstances have now changed and need a larger car. I was planning on keeping the car hence all the work completed. The cars in excellent mechanical condition for the age. I usually buy cars and keep them for c.5 years hence all the work completed.
Beautiful engine, sounds absolutely incredible.
Simply the best handling car I’ve driven. Always filled at Shell & heating never used until car has warmed up.

Milano Red with full Type R GT Interior and options (which include)

CD MP3 Player
Auto Wipers & Lights
Full Dual Climate Control
Cruise Control
Folding mirrors

In addition also has;
Factory Upgraded 19 inch Alloys (Rage)
Factory Sat Nav (with full screen)
Sport fuel lid (although could do with a refurb)

Work in my ownership -

When I bought the car I treated it to a full service at Honda HQ

The car has wanted for nothing mechanically. (both keys available).
