    Default Loxy's Type R #5 - Milano Red FK2 GT

    Picking it up next Saturday all being well.







    I am happy the saga of replacing the CW is finally over. Rather aptly this is the exact same first FK2 that I drove 14 weeks ago and what started it all off in putting the idea in my head of selling the CW FN2 and ordering an FK2.

    Milano GT, registered July 2015, so a 15 plate and at the minute it is on about 1,200 miles, so bedded in and ready to go.

    I'll be adding bits to it as I go, probably start with some of the carbon interior trims and some wind deflectors, but I'll have to buy some more of deflectors as I put the first set on the wife's 1.8 FK2.

    The first mod will be a 2nd set of alloys and winter tyres. I'll be sorting them asap.

    I will say that I am never placing an order on a new car again as it is far more stressful than it ought to be.

    Great stuff Loxy. It's personal preference at the end of the day, but I'm really glad you've gone for the Type R. Plus the EP3, FN2 (x2!), FD2, FK2 run is an awesome car ownership history I'd say.

    Not that you need telling, but many many updates, pictures, videos please. Haven't been many from forum members yet!
    Type R #3 - FK8

    Welshy I had to edit this and Loxy will get my Joke.

    I hope it is the Type-R loxy and not the Jazz that is sat there.

    Joking aside, I wonder if Matt would be able to get you the Honda Access JDM deflectors or Mugen wind deflectors for you for the FK2?

    DAFUQ did I miss John?

    What stopped the beemer purchase? & how many of the 1200 miles were done whilst cold at full throttle?

    ...in fairness, I've heard that's the best way to run a modern engine in anyway lol
    UKDM y0!
