Oh yes the K20’s an animal 🤘

I’m really looking forward to a dissection video of the FL5 version, the FK version was very cool
I prefer the fk2 over the fk8 and the fl5, fk2 definitely on my list that's if they drop a little down on price!
this was my thinking, my champ white I own it and the upgrade price to an FK would be chopping that in plus adding 10K++ , so instead I’ve decided to charge the FN2 for around 5k for the bits to appease my need for speed 🤪

Makes sense, the prices for fk2 are just out of reach. Decent around 20-25k. If your car is in good condition and will last a good few years the it makes sense. Just wish I had 6k spare, I would do it in a heart beat. My car with a charger, yes please😂

Px'd the Si 1.8 for a Jazz 1.5 Sport.
Now the wife is happy.
Surprising car, not much difference in internal space or performance vs the 1.8.
Tax is £60+ cheaper and should do more MPG.
Hope it does you and your charming wife (whom it was very nice to meet, I wasn't expecting that when we rolled up to Simply Jap) well Mate. I found the one I drove as a lone car to be quite nice. I guess the only downside is now you have to alter your Signature on the forum!

Replaced my condenser after finding a massive leak in it after a re-gassing at Kwik-Fit. Managed to get a refund from them, so that's a bonus. Broken Air Con during the heat wave... not so much.

This was the first big (well, big for me) mechanical job I've done on the car so I'm very happy with myself.

Now I'm awaiting my mobile AirCon specialist to come and fill'er back up.

Question - does anyone know of a good quality mesh I can use to make a protective barrier so that my new condenser doesn't suffer the same fate as the last?

Cheers all!

Out of interest how much did you get for the 1.8?

WBAC £1815 - F off!
Honda dealer £2750 - 10 reg, Si, 63k miles.

Jazz £13,890 after they knocked £1100 off in the "sale".
68 reg, 27k miles and bonus - 2 years left on the service plan!

Brilliant little motor with 130HP, didn't really notice any difference in performance vs the 1.8.
