I did have all sorts of ideas before buying one what I wanted to do, but now I've got it and driven it a bit, all I want right now is my headunit and some decent door speakers! Hope to enjoy her as she is for now! 

 

Took it straight to my brothers garage, got her on a ramp and he says there's nothing that needs doing!

Welcome to the club mate, I love mine even more every time I drive it! A decent headunit does help a lot but the speakers leave a lot to be desired! Enjoy it! Less than half the mileage of mine haha

 

Other project cars EP3 takeover? I think so.

We can try! :lol:

 

I have a set of DB Audio mids in my room, 5.25" too so I'll get myself the adaptors and bung them straight in! Going to order an ISO adaptor and new DAB aerial and provided it's dry at the weekend I'll crack on and get at least the headunit in!

Haha, they might be like rocking horse poo next time I want one!

Also as seen in my build I did the Hondata airbox mod, and it keeps a nice standard look under the bonnet and really improved performance, for the princely sum of £0. So consider it :)

 

Oo I wanna do either component front speakers or just better coaxials, anything would be better than standard tbh

The DB Audio T-Rex's I have are components, but I probably won't want to be spending too much time on it fitting the tweeters too this week so may leave them and just do the radio first. I'm still recovering from jet lag and catching up on stuff at home. :)

How are you finding it in comparison to the MB6? Having been in @Roj MB6 and then my EP3, they're completely different cars but excellent in their own ways!

 

Yeah the tweeters are the one part of stopping me from getting comps, because I'd need the A pillar triangle trims.

Feels much more pokey driving around town and feels like it has better low down grunt! Also the EPS makes my life much easier, I was beginning to struggle with the heavier steering of the VTi-S because of problems I've got in my hands/arms. The EP3 is just so nice to drive! Exactly what I wanted after all the messing about!

 

I might fit just the mids and see how it sounds without the tweeters, or just buy some regular speakers to put in?

You're probably going to change speakers before me so let me know how components sound with just mids, I may just try some JBL coaxials I have lying around somewhere from my starlet and see how that goes, I know the standard front speakers clip in and aren't even screwed so that makes life easier, a good headunit/EQ setup helps these dramatically though! I do have a rather powerful subwoofer so I do need speakers for vocals more than anything else though!

 

The EP3 is a joy to drive in town, the steering is light yet somewhat precise, the K20 has low down grunt and also the ratios help a bunch! Plus its surprisingly good on fuel!

mmmmmm, I love spending money on car audio! Speakers will make a massive difference mate. Thinking I might change the ones in DD and Roxy too

My friend with the FN2 changed his speakers out and also put a double DIN stereo in the dashboard, the sound quality is so good and the FN2 feels so solid and rattle free with decent bass/clarity, do it!

I already done the double din conversion mate, and even just getting rid of the standard stereo makes such a massive difference. Got a Pioneer touch screen, check out my project thread bud. Right, speakers are deffo next! lol

Looks nice mate.

 

When I changed my headunit, the speakers sounded soo much better, so i would change it first before you go and buy any.

 

I have also did the Hondata airbox mod, it does feel smoother. It will do unti i get a teg m lol
