Hi guys I bought my car in August after wanting one for about 2 years. So after I ally landing the dream job first on the list was the Type R!

After searching for a few weeks I pretty much raced over to Manchester to buy this one:





2007 with 26,000 miles
GP body kit, rage alloys and sat nav

By the time I picked up the car the week after I already had a pile of bits for her:

Gear gaitor
Before


After


Team heckos


Folding mirror mod

Next a few engine bits




Fog light covers




I also started to gather a lot of cleaning stuff


The egg yoke look started to bug me a little so got rid of that



Also some Cree sidelights


6000k headlights


I added a little bit of colour to the key without having to blow money on new keys
Before


After


Then I finally got into the serious mods

Japspeed short shifter


I had to file a lot more than what I thought or wanted to to make this fit but is great for the price!

Next was the Skunk2



I think it's the fake one but for £15 on eBay it was an absolute bargain!

And then my favourite mod so far...

The HSK RSK with heat shield




I can honestly say this has been the most fun mod I have done so far. Then noise is amazing and I would recommend to anyone!

Thanks for the comments guys. I've had it on the other forum for a while but I've found myself over here recently so thought I'd put her up and see what you thought

Had my car serviced by Grinspeed yesterday and just want to thank them, especially Stevie, for sorting everything out for me. They provided a brilliant service at the best price I could find and Stevie Couldn't have done more for me! He constantly got back to me quickly when I messaged him and went out of his way to make sure I could pickup and drop off.

Thanks again guys for the service the car feels brilliant. Much smoother on idle and gear changes have benefitted from the oil change. I'm sure I will be over again soon for more bits doing...
