Congrats Hunter - happy motoring! Picked mine up on Friday - 130 miles on her now. VTEC a couple of times.;);) Still getting used to having no turbo at 2,000rpm but car looks the biz!! Would also like to lower driver seat a little more (yes, down as far as it will go)...

Anyway, happy motoring!! :p

Sounds great! picked mine up today too. Planning on waxing mine some soon too but got loads on so won't be able to do it for a couple of weeks at least :(

Enjoy your motor, and the VTEC!

Apologies if this is a stupid question: is vtec an absolute 'no-no' until after 600 miles? (Have been in that rev range a few times ~ 6000rpm... 200 miles on the clock). I'm getting conflicting messages from a number of sources. (Miss my turbo low-down in rev range...:()
I have covered 330miles in my Type R, i am using Pottsy`s method (see "running in" thread posted by zippy)

I thought you were supposed to avoid motorways for the first 600 miles?

or am i wrong??
