Danith's facelift Fn2 Civic Type R

I had a look at the shadow chrome but against the car it looked a little naff.

Its tricky to gauge what the car will look like with the actual wheels painted rather than just a rim plonked in front lol
I'd go for a darker silver. To be honest, these hi power silver would look good too (same as my 18s pro race) as they look a bit of a titanium finish rather than sparkly silver on my ep3 wheels.
I think if you had a gp kit you should get darker wheels like gunmetal but without silver would look tidy

I would get darker but not too dark. Silver is a mega safe bet though isn't it, just that some powder coaters have a really s**t selection of silvers

I agree mate. This guy is local so will stick the car on blocks, collect and deliver the wheels.

Problem with powder coating the pictures don't look anything like the wheels do in person. Plus silver cars are a pain.

Do you think the wheels in the picture are too dark?

Nah I like gunmetal wheels on silver, just hate black and white wheels full stop lolz.

Gunmetal would look gash on a dark car tho

Cheers mate!

I think I'm going to go for them, fancy a change and bongo silver is dull as dishwater.

Just got back from our Nurburgring trip yesterday. Haven't done the full drive since I first went, 6 trips ago! The place still amazes me and never feels exactly the same (unlike some track days). Scorching hot weather, which led to a fair bit of chaos, but that's what I love about TF.

Fn2 was the right choice (over the ep3) - air con and cruise control. The meister coilovers were so smooth for the whole trip, only firmed up to fully hard on the tourist laps I did with my mate as passenger. Loads of traffic so weren't fast laps at all, but again, it's TF so it's about the fun and experience not willy waving laptimes.

I genuinely think that it handles better than the ep3, it's so much more planted. Obviously lacks the punch of my ep3 with standard engine/exhaust and no map, plus a car full of crap! A/C on a lap aswell was a god send!

Loads of crashes on the Sat/Sunday - so satruday I just watched with some beers. Sunday we had an 'M5 competition' ring taxi (as recommended by @james) and then I did my final lap, which was pretty much yellow flags all the way to the end from Brunnchen.

Love this car it's such a great all rounder and I actually love that people hate it, for some reason it adds to the appeal.

Mate came in his rs3 too, had a lap on Saturday in it. The thing is savage! Sounds amazing and never seems to have any lack of power at any revs!

You defo made the right choice taking the FN over the EP. F*ck driving all that way in a tinny track car. I cant go 10 miles in the MR before it starts to annoy the sh*t out of me. I'd 100% take the Skoda if I ever do a ring trip.

They feel way more than a generation advanced over the EP3 tbh. I was never impressed with the one I drove many moons ago
Million times better steering (ep3 was never going to be hard to beat to be fair) and much more planted car. When I get the chain done I'll be doing the balancer shaft removal to make it a bit more revvy like the ep. Just got 91k almost, on the trip.

Defo. It was harsh enough in the fn2, I think I'd have binned the ep3 off by Watford gap :)

It's now worthy of the sticker. Brand new genuine fn2 type r badge too. The fk8 one looked a bit odd

Absolutely gutted for you with what I just seen on facebook.

I've shared the post, fingers crossed you get some info.

Might be worth sharing the post on here for others to see and share?
