My name is Eugene (Or Eug) from Sydney, I run Team HKR and currently own an '07 black Honda FN2R "EMI", previously I drove an all out CH Lancer "HKR", a Gen 1 MX6, 2 Cressida Grandes and a full blown '83 911 Turbo

No major plans for the FN2R yet, as I need to save money for other important things in life and don't want to void the warranty yet. For now I have just done minor enhancements (bulbs, accent lighting, powder coated rims etc)

petrol 400kms for 40l of vpower so economically pretty good....the seats r nice tho :) definitely bang for buck here

Don't worry, the mileage will only go down from here. This is when you get used to the power and will unconsiously push harder. My new ralliart colt fetches 7L/100km when i first bought it and now, its drinking average of 8L/100km

eug4emi
12-09-07, 10:03 PM

nice one.. what's up with the rear wheels?

eug4emi
21-09-07, 12:39 AM
rofl knew some1 would ask, getting the other 2 back tmz, because i need to drive my car everyday so i used my bro's spare rims but the front brakes too big to fit his rims so i did 2 at a time, u get the drift, was a hassle but worth it hehe :)

Although makes no financial sense, but spray it yourself! :lol:

If you spray it CW, you're probably the only FN2 in Australia which has CW.

I am never a fan of FN2 but your wheels looks good with the colour of your car.

lovesil
27-09-07, 10:02 AM
Welcome to the dark side. If anyone wants to practise on washing a black one, i'm most willing to let you wash mine too :D

BTW, CW FN2 has been done in UK. Someone already resprayed one into CW there.

eug4emi

You should really open the window up a little bit if you leave here in there for more than 15 mins on a hot day.

eug4emi
20-10-07, 01:12 PM

20-10-07, 10:36 PM
thx boys
yeh i thought abt black plates too but theres too many other colours on the car, such as the reds, i need something to balance it out, but i guess when regos up i will try black plates ehhe....i would like illegal tints too but this is via company lease dont think the leasing company will like it haha...i am trying to play legal for this car :P

brian j i sure will, let me search ur posts to see what ur IS looks like first, cheers

GTking
24-10-07, 08:24 PM
20% tint is legal anything further is illegal

Cappuccino
24-10-07, 08:42 PM
Love the black on black like everyone mentioned

GT King - i thought 35% was the legal limit?

GTking
24-10-07, 08:59 PM
Cap yeah your correct
didnt really look into it that much just aways thought 20% was darkest legal tint

llama_au
24-10-07, 09:31 PM
35% is darkest legal. Apparently they have to be able to wind the window down to test it, so you can get away with the back window darker.

sub11z
27-10-07, 02:39 PM
Nice car mate, test drove it the other day, it really likes to rev

jz4sho - yeah I was about to get black nuts but our wheel nuts are tapered, very hard to find tapered ones for our car, stupid UK models, I heard Audi's uses same nuts as our cars, not sure, i cbf researching haha...

fly - yeh I think H&R have ones that fits my car, but i can't get into my car park lol, steepest m'fkn entrance you will ever have seen haha....when i move places i will make sure entrance is low enough, then i might drop it if it doesn't void my warranty / insur etc :)

Knight Rider
03-04-08, 12:56 PM
May-be.

One of my friends went for a test-drive in the new CTR's.

He says its a very grunty car and has extremely firm suspension...

Have you watched the Type R Comparison on TopGear??

What are your thoughts and opinions on that?

eug4emi
03-04-08, 01:07 PM
There are no doubts the FD2R has more Type R blood in it in terms of grunt and suspension, looks etc, but at the end of the day, this is what I can get in Australia only and I am happy with this :)

I use it as a daily anyway, so the 'matured' status of this evolved CTR suited me :)

Thanks all for the kind words, yeah it's a hassle and I did love my car, the massive dents on both rear ends is pretty painful to watch, I will upload some pics mon or tue.

To keep it short, the merc didn't see me merge lanes and hit me, which pushed me to hit the ute on my side. By law, because I am merging into the merc's lane, it is my fault.

Another $400 or so gone...sigh

If you're not happy it's being fixed will you sell the car straightaway?

eug4emi
04-08-08, 02:27 PM
Can't sell because it's on a novated lease through my company and the depreciation first 2 years or so is shithouse...

In my eyes, it isn't really what I want because car harder to sell (buyers will talk it down etc) and I know for sure the rear suspension will still be a bit fked no matter how they fix it, due to past experiences with my other cars

Whoa, that is quite a nasty damage to the Civic there.
Ute's built like a brick. Merc's damage isn't too bad either, but probably need to see them in real life for a clearer picture.
Let's hope that she'll be back on the road looking better than ever in no time at all.

good time to seam weld the farker and call it a track car.

I can tell you from experience after stacking the FD sports twice, that repairs will never be able to make the car the same. With the curvature of panels on car designs these days unless it's from factory the panels never line up perfectly.

either way hope your back on the road soon.

Was about to sell for a X, but now that it got owned, I will keep for a few more years until early years financing pain is over, also bearing in mind that people will talk me down due to the acco :(

Don't think so. No-one will buy it after seeing this thread.

Thanks, I don't mind if people know, I am always open when my car sells rather than giving the buyer a nasty surprise afterward.

meh it was only panel damage anyway, if it's repaired well there's absolutely nothing to worry about. not like you heavily damaged a chassis rail or anything.
