I bought my FN2 as a stop gap 4 years ago. Absolutely love it and spent loads on bodywork and interior parts to get it looking as fresh as new as feasible. Parts include…

Rear lower perspex window - £1k
Double din with OEM fascia and rear camera - £600
Condenser - £300
Full OEM damper refresh/replacement - £600
Bodywork - £1k
Calipers - £200
New door card - £300
Refurbed alloys - £400
Mugen gear knob and steering wheel retrim - £300
Rev Meter fascia - £150

The time has come to sell next year I think. Always wanted to own a V8 so the next car will be a 6.2 C63. I feel that this will be a last chance opportunity as soon V8’s will be gone forever. The 4 doors will also make life easier with having the little one.

I’m fortunate enough to also own a S2000 so can get my vtec kicks in that.

I’ll miss the FN2, no doubt. TBH I never expected to have it as long as I have. It’s a great car even though it’s crashy as anything.
They get under your skin which is unusually for a Japanese car (ish) 8 cdti then 9 R for me

They do. TBH I’d have loved as a 20 year old lad. Now I’ve got 40 and had one for 4 years it’s time to move on.

I’ve owned my S2000 for over 12 years. I can’t see me ever selling it.
I was same with my 59 plate Rocco TSI GT but sold it to my little cousin n at 50 decided sod it I went for a 9g r when I bought Rocco so I hought hell why not when Honda dealership phoned 3yr later

Bought my fn2 in milano red as a stop gap till my ioniq 5 arrives. Used to have an ep3 and had forgotten how quick these cars are. I got a bit of a bargain and only plan to keep 3-4 months so im debating whether to have the bodywork resprayed as the front end needs a full respray along with the roof above the windscreen or just sell as is and lose little if no money. Mechanically the cars spot on so its a bit of a conundrum
keep it as your toy, thats what im going to do with betty :) im waiting on work doing leccy car to work scheme, we installing high output chargers in the next few weeks onsite, they doing brabus smart 2 for £300 all in a month (servicing tyres, insurance & lease 60k mile deal over 36month)off top line before tax off salary full deal everything inclusive inc charging at work :p i want a Honda E though, not on the list....yet to us oldies the E screams mk1 civic....i love them in the green and ofc the blue, it woudl fit my needs perfectly i live 16miles away from my place of work 150 mile weekly commute, that drops my monthly miles on the type r to under 500miles a month.

What provider does your workplace use for the electric cars? Our place are going to be introducing it soon using Tusker but it is difficult to find any example prices without having a log in so dont know if they are competitive or not.

p.s. I am also an oldie and love the Honda for the same reason as above :)
not sure, check the AA they also do leccy car leases, thats what i have been basing our plan on.
