Owning a type R, you become so famous, you need a pen to sign all the autographs.

Yesterday I had parked up and as I was getting out this guy does a double take at the car before stumbling. I smiled at him and he smiled back with a thumbs up and a cracking car comment.

Mark, Just going back to the Fk2 again. Somebody was having the same error codes as I had. His car was out of warranty though but Honda Foc still changed his loom too. Was exactly the same issue I had with the broken wire at the connector it turned out.

So you got any mods planned apart from the gear lever. ?
