I think in addition to the Mugen front and rear splitters, 19" Honda Lightning and Mugen badge on the boot they also replaced the standard number plaque above the gear stick with a special ultra lightweight Mugen 200 number plaque.

Oh and they didn't have any more champ white mirror caps lying around in the factory so they used black ones instead...

Bit harsh eh!!!!

Tat :(
What else would you call it, it doesn't increase the performance in any way does it? Just look better innit :)

I'd rather have my DC2 any day of the week. And it would make mince meat of that overpriced mugen 200 or whatever it is for £38k

Mugen 20 has had the engine stripped and rebuild by Mugen so is much faster than the m200. But yes the m200 just has visual mods to make it look better, looks good though :)
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the FN2 CTR, it just makes my blood boil that Honda should have done to the CTR what Mugen did (apart from removing the rear seats). If they did, I would have had one from new. Honda seem to have gone soft since the 'engineering' days of the original Type R's. It seems it's the accountants that govern what bits to fit and not the engineers.

it would have been too raw for most so yeah you're right the accountants won as it made business sense. But as far as I'm aware HUK is still a business at the end of the day.

Sounds like you want a M20 at stock FN2 money?

No thanks. A FN2 with more power, more feedback, better handling and the flexibility of being able to do the school run in as well as a few trackdays, just like my proper Type R (DC2). Sadly, Honda never made that car in FN2 format.

M20 is way overpriced and too extreme. You could do a better job with a supercharger and a proper geometry setup for WAY less than an M20 would cost.
