    So I sold my DC2 just after Christmas and regretted it straight away, I turned to the dark side and bought a Fiesta ST for the commute to work but it was horrendous to drive.

    I only lasted two months in that before selling it on and purchasing my first EM1 b16a2 coupe last weekend, 19/04/2014

    I've always been a jap man at heart and this is my 7th car in just under two years. 6 of which were Jap, and I'm happy to be back! (none were written off, I just like to swap around)

    I purchased this as an ideal base to start making it my own. It came with a fresh 12 months MOT, substantial amount of servicing receipts and 98k on the clock.

    The only modifications when I bought it were some v-maxx coilovers, Kenwood USB/AUX headunit, and a crud MOOGEN POWA oil cap.

    The interior is immaculate with no signs of wear on the seats and no noticeable marks anywhere on the dash. It also came with original tool kit and brand new unused 5th EM1 spare alloy wheel with brand new tyre.

    Since buying it I have already debaged the boot apart from the Honda badge, fresh wipers, FAR-OUT decals, Tegiwa shift extension, fresh full service and Cambelt/Aux belts all changed. I also have some fresh 13x6.5 plates on the way and a skunk2 weighted shifter.

    Some plans I currently have include some new wheels, fresh coilovers, Airwalker front bumper, EK9 front grill, catback exhaust system, intake and some blue DC5 recaros if I'm lucky. 

    I'd like to go with a blue theme against the VSM and maybe go with some bronze or polished rims.

    Anyway heres a couple of photos I took today, thanks for looking...

    Yeah he bought my old ej9 off me, I'm guessing you seen it, the beige one slammed on klutch wheels?
  11. willowwonka Club Member ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    Nah man I didn't see it but i've seen it around before, he didn't have it as his house when i picked the EM1 up. Think he just loves buying and selling Hondas haha!

    So over the last couple of days I picked up some fresh 'DOHC VTEC' side stickers from stickerdude, Hekos, EK9 style grill and some 13x6.5 plates.

    I'll fill the holes in the bumper and boot recess over the weekend and repsray.
