Random topic title. I know very little about the fundamentals of motor technology. The benefits, the differences and etc. But I'm beginning to learn slowly, however my time is short as it is, especially as University is about to start again. I'll need a lot of help and discuss certain aspects of changes of modifications when the time comes, but before I begin with all the enhancements, I need to bring it up to standards as the previous owner didn't quite look after the car. It didn't occur to me at the time as I was a bit too excited and was a bit careless and reckless, but I don't regret on the purchase, I mean, its my first car after all. I have a lot planned and money never bothers me. Bear with me for this project! It may take its time, ha. So again, not quite a project build yet, but soon. To do List Clutch Replacement - Some bearings are loose and sounds horrible, especially through 1st gear and second. This will set me back around £700-800. Air Conditioning - Supposedly something is preventing the cold breeze from coming out, need a further investigation and no idea on cost. General Body work - There's a few scratches and paint work seems to be fading in certain areas, or rather the impression of a cheap job was done after a crash of some sort. Absolutely no idea on a respray cost. Tint work damaged - Not VERY noticeable but it can be when your investigating closely. So will need to get that sorted when I can. Raise the exhaust - Not pleasant at all to hear the scratching sound when you pass over a bump slowly... Question, is it really worth me modifying an EP2? And if so, how far really? And at what mileage is considered best to sell? I will most likely get the Type-R in a few years. Not sure how much a 2 years no claim will reduce the insurance on one of those, may need to check. And if its within budget, preferably less than 3k then I may buy it next year. Please note, I've only been driving a few months but my insurance company gives me 1 years no claim in half a year, pretty good to be honest.
