If i bought the fn2 i would be modding it quite heavily, mugen rear wing, mugen alloys, lowered, uprated brakes hondata flashpro etc, induction kit, exhaust system, very excited about the project but with the price of mugen parts i wonder if i should save time and money and just get a scooby wrx sti for the same money

Mugen body parts don't make you go faster.you will just look like half the other civics out there. Get performance mods instead. So your car will be faster.

the fn2 feels more planted the ep3 and some people see this as a bad thing. Its definately not as thrashy or scrabbly as an ep3 (the vsa helps with that but you can turn it off and the car is more ep3 like). Its much nicer inside and i think sounds better as well. Its a little more grown up than the ep3 but with a few mods (filter, flashpro, frs) its a quicker, better car than the ep3.

you only live once, get one.

a scooby will be cheaper to tune and give more punch but i think the fn2 is a better car to drive...nothing better than a lightly tuned fn2 screaming in vtec.

If your looking for the mugen look, check out type r kits there kits are very similar to Mugens but a lot cheaper and good quality ;). On the other hand a genuine mugen kit looks very amazing

Finally got my fn2, was initially dissapointed with it but having had it a couple of months it has grown on me, i have lowered it on eibach springs, got a tegiwa induction kit on it and uprated the brakes so far, going to order some rota wheels and a toda exhaust system tonight, thanks for the replys

The ep3 i had for nearly 3 years, i loved that car, was the first honda i ever owned, i just thought the fn2 would put as big a smile on my face as the ep3 did when i first drove it, but it didnt, i guess when i drove the ep3 first time i was new to vtec. Fn2 defo nicer inside, bulkier seats sounds meatier etc, ep3 felt more nimble, lighter, which it was i guess, but all in all i think the fn2 is the better car

If you open an account on Photobucket.com, you save your photo's on there, copy the link in a thread and magically photo's appear.

It's the devils work!
