    Price £15,500ono (no px or swap)
    Description;

    Didn't think I would ever do this but a few things are needing done in the house and I am just not driving it as much as I would like. Owning a car I don't want to drive because I don't want to ruin it or put mileage on it is just silly.

    So my pride and joy is for sale. Even though I have only had her for just over 6 months I have spent quite a bit of time, effort and money to improve it.

    Mileage: 67.5k (will go up slightly)

    Works wheel nuts and valve (locking wheel nut included)
    Ad08r tyres all round with excellent tread
    Meister R Coilovers fully adjustable (on softest setting atm and great to drive around town etc. No rubbing on speed bumps etc
    Red stuff pads

    Engine;
    Gruppe M Induction kit (comes with aftermarket scuttle panel which is fitted. Don't have Oem one)
    Magnetic drain plugs on engine and gearbox
    Toda manifold
    Sports cat
    Ecu remap with hondata flash pro. Vtec is set as 4.6k (going for a dyno run to see what power it has as remap was done in 2010)

    Extras;

    Spare brand new Oem petrol cap flap
    Spare wheel, tools and jack
    Reversing camera
    Hondata flash pro

    Car comes with a **** load of paperwork history. I am the 5th owner in the UK. It was imported new in 2008 by Litchfield imports. It has been serviced very regularly. Very very well looked after car, drives like new, interior is immaculate apart from a small scratch on the glove box handle. Gearbox feels perfect. Just changed the engine and gearbox oil (3/7/17). Have a small interminttent issue with it starting but will have this sorted ASAP as I have bought a new clutch switch. If not that then I will replace immobiliser unit as everything else has been ruled out.

    In the time I have had the car I have fitted Oem Honda clips to the engine bay that were missing. Replaced coolant and brake fluid. Secured the aftermarket scuttle panel and Gruppe M properly. Replaced pollen filter. Fitted the interior footwell ambient light kit (red). Repaired the boot around gear changer. Fitted an Oem exhaust system (this was like new sprayed in high temp black paint) sorted out a lot of loose wires. Spent £650 on a full correction detail by Paul Smith detailing including;

    Stage 1 machine polish
    Ceramic coating applied (if looked after properly will last for 2 years)
    Bonnet wet sanded and polished as it was looking flat as it has been resprayed previously for stone chips. Looks amazing now.
    Wheels removed, detailed, sealed and ceramic coating applied
    All black trim restored
    Interior oem black type R mats shampooed and restored
    Seats shampooed and protected
    Full underseal at Automek. This was a proper 2 day job. Underneath is like new.

    Will add anything else to this if I have forgotten anything. Genuinely gutted to be selling as it's such a stunning car. Extremely rare in silver. But needs must unfortunately.

    Bad points;
    Few stone chips on bonnet and front bumper but nothing bad just age related really
    Very small scrape on drivers side of rear bumper
    Aircon not working. Had it checked and needs a new condensor
    2 alloys hav scrapes on it. Others are fine
    Broken captive thread on passenger side on rear spoiler.

    Been as honest as I can be ;)

    Any questions let me know or any pics required just ask.

    Price: £15,500ono (no swaps or px)
