    Nice. I see the car has an rbc, aftermarket tb, teg/gruppe m, exhaust and coilovers. I liked my satin silver ep3.

    Cheers guys. Yeah i’m very very pleased with it! It has some very tasty parts on it .
    I Think I may need to invest in some new tyres *** as what are on it feel useless in the wet �� (nangkang ns-2r)
    Any certain tyres you guys recommend for the winter? Cheers

    Eagle f1s are good on road. I run them on my dc5 and beemer. Really good dry and wet grip pretty quiet and cheaper than the Michelins.

    Goodyear AS3 are great on my FN2, no reason why they should not be same on an EP3.

    SK-R advice is sound if you have the funds, he knows what he's on about - seen him driving his EP3

    Looks nice that mate - very nice.
    I also used to have a silver EP3, (and a silver FN2)

    Tyres - avoid Bridgestone too - no good at all in the colder weather.

    Michelins are at the higher end of the price range, but very very good.
