    Hi Chris. Sorry for the late reply to this. I really want to get the car up on a ramp / lift soon and have a thorough health check done. Which bushes usually perish and need replacing? The car handles amazingly but I would like to make it as tight and fresh as it was from the factory.

    I知 seeing Grinspeed soon so will ask them to have a look.

    Oh and it seems the FRSU comes highly recommended. I知 going to get some new tyres then perhaps get the geometry sorted soon after.

    Just an update I went ahead and bought a brand new Quaife ATB and OEM Honda bearings from Momentum Motorsport. Now thinking if I should fit immediately or wait until the clutch needs doing? I thought my clutch was faulty but realised the pedal stiffness was due to me being used to low mileage moden day diesel VW's and Audi's with soft easy to use controls. After a few weeks of EP3 ownership I've learnt to use the car properly!

    An EP3 clutch should be very light.

    If it catches near the floor or has a firm pedal it's likely the clutch is an issue.

    Clutch is about 」150 quid, I'd just do it while the box is out regardless. Small potatoes when combined with the cost of a diff.

    The clutches go stiffer on the pedal the more worn they are, if its stiff get a new genuine Honda one fitted.

    Thanks guys. I need something to compare the car to. I don稚 know if mine is normal or stiffer than it should be. It catches halfway between the floor and top of pedal travel.

    The usual tell tale sign is difficulty shifting at higher rpm.

    It seems to change gear fine at all revs to be honest. And no crunches or other funny business
