I've had the car now for about 3 months and you could say I've got the R bug or civinfo bug. As I've got big plans for it, I thought it would be easier to post a project thread rather than individual threads.

I previously owned a EP3 and also spent a lot of time getting it like I wanted. My new one is a Type R GT on an 08 plate and I plan on keeping it for sometime. I pretty much saved for years for it and I'm so pleased with it. Makes me smile everytime I look at it.

I have got the cash to upgrade and pretty much finish where I want to be. But I don't really want to use a large proportion of my savings to spend on the car. So right now I'm enjoying upgrading parts each months, its all part of the fun.

Here's what I've done currently;
- Rages
- Heko's
- Sumo Oil Cap
- HKS Rad Cap
- HKS RSK (may change in near future)
- HKS Replacement Filter (Red)
- Carbon Roof/mirrors (Wrap)
- Samco Hose's (coolant)
- Samco Hose's (breather)
- Skunk2 Gear Knob
- Battery Strap - (Rick R)
- Interior Lighting (Rick R)
- Upgraded Bulbs
- Type r grill badge
- Type R Side Decal
- Spoon Socks

Next Up;
- Eibach's
- Rear Windows tinted
- Custom Exhaust Build
- Fast Road Set Up
- Grooved Disk & Green Stuff
- LSD
- GP Kit
- Mugen Wing
- Possible Charger (next year)
- Stage 1 Clutch Kit
- OEM CTR alloys painted gloss black (winter tyres)
- ??????

The Day I picked her up & said goodbuy to the EP3;




First addition; Heko's & Type R Grill Badge (yes it;s not straight) It is now :D



R Badge relocated correctly



Rage's - very happy with these (before the R badge was relocated)



Added; RSK, Sumo Oil Cap & HKS Rad Cap



As I bought the RSK second hand, I couldn't be sure of when the filter was replaced, so swaped for a new nice red one. (Thanks Sumo)




Carbon Roof & Mirror's wrapped



Spoons Arrived & Fitted



Samco's Arrived & Fitted

Lovely looking car mate, where did you get the side decals with the white outline? The standard ones looks rubbish on the milano imo.

Fantastic addition!!!!

What's next?
:facepalm:
Eibach's & FRS, ordered the eibach's yesterday, so they'll hopefully arrive for the weekend.

I also think I'll be buying a brake upgrade at some point today. Seems right to do the lot whilst I've got the wheels off ;)

Bit of an update, moving quite quickly now;

Eibach's were on order but Eibach have just rang me to state they are out of stock and won't have any in for 6 to 8 weeks. Did'nt fancy the wait so they refunded me the money instantly. Can't fault that service.

So instead I've ordered;

- Tein S -Tech, be with me for the weekend as confirmed stock :)
- Grilled & Groved Discs & new pads, also be with me for the weekend :)

Also just booked in for my custom exhaust build & fit for the 5th July 2011.

Due to the fact I may be getting a charger in March next year and by then everything will be ready for it. I am going to go for an increased bore. Normally 2.5 but I'm going for either 2.75 or 3.00, with a temporay resonator to reduce sound until the charger. Other wise it would be too loud for my liking.

Now just to explain to the Mrs that I've spent another grand & she's still not got an engagement ring. lol

Hope to get over to TDI north in July for FRS & Flashpro. Be interested to see what my BHP will be. Hopefully around the 220 mark.

Just picked up on that. Haha. I'll learn to spell check. Just had a quote to fit the lot for £190, disc, pad's and springs. Not too bad. If I had the time I'd get them done myself.

Amber performance, for the both coolant and breather it was in the region of around £160 delivered. However the rad hose's are a bit of a pain to fit. Pretty simple to do if you take your time.
