I bought the car when I was 21 and was over the moon with it. The noise the standard engine made would put a smile on my face and driving it round town would always make me feel like the king of the road.....Ive been into car forums before as I was an active member on cliosport.net before so I came in search of one for my Type-R and ended up at CTRO. I soon realised that it was mainly for the ep3 and was pointed in the direction of this great forum!

Anyway...enough boring stuff. Heres what I have done so far in the order that the mods came in.

- Mr. JP's Headlights
- Mr. JP's L.E.D Sidelights
- Mr. JP's Interior lights (RED)



Next up I saw a milltek come up on the forums so I bought that and on she went.

After some good reviews on the forum I decided to order some team Heko wind deflectors mainly for the looks :)



I then decided that I wanted a more sporty stance and I also wanted to improve the crashy ride a bit. I was torn between the tein 25mm's or the APB eibach 30mm's but in the end I went with the 30's.





Result:






I had always loved the cars on the forum with the GP splitters and nearly cried when I saw how much they are. I couldn't bring myself to spend £700 on these things so I decided to wait around for a used set to come up. A couple of months ago they did :)))







Lastly I purchased a bit of engine bling. Hopefully there will be some more engine bling going in soon.





I have a friend who is a photographer for his carear so I take advantage, Here are some of the photos that we have taken.

















Hope you enjoyed :)

Well my milltek goes a bit quiet for me in the vtec zone so I was thinking about an RSK and a tegiwa carbon plug cover. Not sure if this will look a bit strange above the silver engine cover though.

Had a problem with my MOT the last day or two but thank fully everything is sorted now. Turns out my milltek was leaking in 3 different places. Honda have taken it off, added paste to all the problem areas and also added 2 new clamps where two have corroded. It sounds even nicer now all the noise is coming out the back and not all over the place haha!

Made a small change to my engine bay today:



Gone for a Gold Oil Cap instead. Anyone got any tips on cleaning the red area? I find that when I use products on it, it reacts and turns a white colour?

Also I gave the exterior a clean so heres a snapshot from my phone:
