Thanks for the kind welcome

Well my 2 Children are getting bigger day by day to need something a bit more suited towards them also. Lack of airbags in the DC5 plus how tight it is in the back is made me decide to sell it for something a "little" more family orientated

I want to give the FN2 a chance, plus my other half loves the FN2, she hates my DC5 :rolleyes:

Stick it up for sale here on the forums and see if anyone wants it. You never never know, may even get a part ex on the go ;)

FN2 is very practical I must admit :)

Yeah the DC5 is a lovely car. Ill post a few more pictures up

Very true. The only thing i would of liked the FN2 to of had from factory is an LSD. I know the CW comes with one but thats a bit over my budget. Not too fused though as it is a family hatch to be used on the roads

hello and welcome ,lovely dc5 !
Cheers buddy

After mid 2010 they were stock on all CTR's. Also there are plenty about with aftermarket ones fitted. Check out the for sale forum, they crop up quite often :)

Nice pics, too ;)

to be honest, for road driving, a standard FN2 with a fast road set up would be plenty....it kills the bit of understeer the FN2 has.

you could spend some pennies on an HKS RSK and a flashpro then..;)

I just dont want to catch the modding bug. Its so tempting just to go and get flash pro and run a generic map just so i can raise the limiter from 8200 to 8600, so use to having my last 3 Type R's with a limiter of 8600

Fast road setup made a huge difference on my EP3, could also be tempted to do this aswell but that where it all starts :p

Welcome Bud!

Love the DC5, probably my favourite Type-R :p
Yeah its deffo my favourite too but the FN2 has grown on me lately. Might just be me getting older :sad:

Welcome.

Love the dc5, would have had one when I bought my ctr but got a whiff of insurance costs for men over 30 and almost fainted.

If not for that I'd have one tomorrow.
