Original post & how things looked when I first got the MB! (so much has changed :D)

 

Hey all, 

            Just wanted to post some pics of my latest addition. Super stoked and excited to get started with some subtle mods etc. Picked it up a couple weeks ago, only had 1 owner from new, 51,000 genuine hpi, dealer and M.O.T backed miles!!! with a full, and I mean every single stamp for its age service history from a main Honda dealer! Couldn't believe how clean the car was underneath / arches etc. Drives like new and has had no expense spared. Couldn't have asked for a better start for a project. 

 

Hoping to start with some small things like some new mats, skunk2 gear knob, clear side repeaters...that kind of thing. then looking to upgrade the brakes, suspension and Chassis. Once all thats sorted I'll take a look at the drivetrain, As after giving it a good couple runs I was thinkin that I want just a little more out of it. don't get me wrong, Im very pleased with the performance as it is and I love the sleeper vibe it has, surprises lot of people  :wink: which is why I deffo want to keep the body stock over changing for the VTI-S kit. But I figure a stage 2 clutch, flywheel, Full exhaust incl headers and cat, decent CAI, Skunk2 Inlet mani, Cams and a map along with a couple other supporting mods would go along way in making the car stand out from the crowd and keep me satisfied for a good while. 

 

Anyway will keep things posted as I get on.

What an amazing base mate !!

 

Welcome along! And what an entrance you have made!

 

That kind of milage/history/condition is nearly unheard of with our cars !

 

So what will be your first "personal" touch???

Cheers Mate! I know, the mileage and condition surprised the hell out of me and after a test drive to see if it felt the same I was sold!

 

TBH, I can't decide what to make my first 'personal' touch, there is so much more available for these cars in all departments compared to the last few projects I have had so choosing where to start and what to do will be tough...might have to give it a week or so and check out some more of the forum for inspiration. I think things like clear side repeaters are a given for most....so maybe start with some small touches like that.

Yeh I was surprised to see that it isn't bubbling anywhere. 

 

Also forgot to mention that it also came with all three keys including the Red Coding key still in the blister pack, love little things like that when you buy a car.

My red key came the same! Was well impressed! :)

Our rocker covers not bubbling is nearly a miracle!! Lol

Check out most of our build threads, I'm sure you'll find plenty of inspirations and ideas!!
