So, I went and bought a sensible saloon...

If you want a fast Honda engine, myself, Mook and Duisberg (among others probably) know a chap who will build (properly) an engine to whatever horsepower you want!

Thread resurrection apologies but how did I miss this thread? Lol

I thought you were inferring that you had driven one when you replied to my DC5 thread but wasn't expecting to find you had bought one! Very bloody nice.

The only one I have seen in uk roads was in Shoreham near Brighton last summer. Made a lovely noise so it did! +++

Aaaaaaaaaaannnd it's gone. 7 years, 2 months or so and many many grin inducing miles were had and now it's the first time there hasn't been a Type-R on the drive in 12 years, 14 actually if you don't count the minor indiscretion with a certain Frenchie for 9 months. :(

They came to pick it up driving an Integra Type-R which took me back, they both looked awesome sitting there on the drive. :cool: 

Oh well, life moves on and so do cars. :)

Very nice, and so much easier on the eye than the new one.

It is the new one, isn't it?  Or have I missed something?

Arch has the 4th Gen R, the newer 5th Gen is even more angular and pointy.

Its the one that took so long in dev from concept, that the new platform came along about 5mins after and replaced it! Supposedly that means there's only 2500 in the UK. FK2 (mine) i think is the better looking car, although FK8 is meant to be the better drive.

Ah, I see.  I must admit it does look a lot better than the thing I saw on The Grand Tour now that I look more closely.

My other half recently bought a 16 place Civic Type R.  The looks aren't entirely to my tastes but she loves it.  The thing is a riot to drive and I adore the gear change.
