Always wanted to get one of these started so here goes.

Bought her back in Feb 2010, low mileage with a few bits done, she was owned by a detailer so body work was mint, tiny lil rust on rear quarters so thats what i wanted to get sorted pretty quick.

Stuff already done;

Buddy Club Pro Spec Exhaust
Tein Basic Dampers
EK9 Headlights
Tints all round

as a vti-s it comes with some goodies anyways;

full extended lip kit
mid spoiler
limited edition interior
ac
full electics
sun roof
vti-s wheels

oh and theres 250 of them made n they're all black.

basically my plans where to make sure it could all be reversed, its a lil piece of history so wanted to make sure its pure OEMness could be kept if needs be.

Day i got the car






quickly removed the front tints for a more JDM look




decided to drop the coilovers to the floor and fit some genuine wind deflectors



then fitted a tegiwa torque damper and a carbon whale penisssss





went for a few nice pics. at this point i had all the rust sorted on the rear arch and tidied up my front suspension with a full respray of all the arms etc.





then got a jdm front plate sorted n my bbs so repped this look for a white n sorted some vtec dohc decals in white.







also along the way i added a few stanceworks stickers and then i took the adjuster out the front to fix the reverse rake and also tilted my spoiler




erm then i got a camera for my bday n took some nice pics. these are the last ones i have on the bbs, ive got some new wheels lined up but they are a secret Wink







heres a photoshop of what the car should look like in a few weeks time



oh it also got a decat which was done somewhere along the line and the rear is stripped out.
thats all folks, watch this space.

future plans,

colour code
tint the sunroof
get enkeis fitted
get a teg airbox fitted (so the whale penis is up for sale)

Nice VTI-s, glad to see another one. You will be happy to know that there have only been 200 made not 250. and i think that includes the MB6 models as well. how much did you lower yours? looking good though cheers

yeh my log book was all messed to too. it was lowered on both, it had the teins when i bought it, then i wound them all the way down while still on the speedlines, then added the bbs n noticed reverse rake n then i took the adjuster out so it dropped another 10mm so it sorted it out.


@Cus

yeh should look good, just gotta get it all sorted now

erm im not sure on the tri-pod pretty sure its a camcorder tri-pod, extends really tall.
