im finding it rather fun, more then i expected. knocks the rubbery socks of the fto interms of .. well ..everything.
if i wanna drive sedatly it likes it, if i wanna hoon it around, i loves it and after 300 miles in it already the tank isnt empty! the fto struggled 250 miles to a 60 tank.

the light isnt going to be an inyour race light, im hoping to place a small bit of EL sheeting behind the Type R logo between the fuel n temp guages that will softly light up when in the zone, the huge v-tak lights from buddy, greddy and iceman are just way to ott, this way its a little understated but cool.
plus no ones done this yet.

booked some time with the car into the bodyshop that looked after the fto to have it all buffed and polised up by myself and a portacable orbital gizmo.
they are gonna give my wheels a going over with a healthy dose of CW to.

so much for keeping it standard lol

sexual indeed.

ive seen it on the jackson charged ep3 but that was millano red with cw rims.
im gonna do a photoshop tomorrow and get opinions on it. i think black sparkle is to dark for a black car and silvers just.. well.. silver.

oh had some guy in a yellow mg zr try and get one over on me, needless to say, VTEC FTW!
its bloody addictive that feel/sound/rush
