gettin down over my megane. got to spend fair few quid on it this year as its cambelt time. also i need new discs and pads. also got few lil things need fixing like window and left axle ball joint problem.
so im going to have a look at a type r fn2 tomoz. love the sound of that vtec, and i really like the looks of them. i no its not as fast but it should be more reliable thatn the renault.
What are people views on this? what you think i should do?

Im in the same boat mate,cambelt brakes service ect, but hang in there and what ever you do ,do not get the Civic they are slow borring and dull. I had an EP3 30 th anniversary

My mates anniversary is alot faster than my meg....fact! He also spent about half what i have.

Fd2 is an awesome car and goes well considering the size of it.

Yeah the ep3s are nice but id never supercharge a very refined engine such as a v-tec, get an FD2 and order a "J's Racing exhaust" it's worth a YouTube search lol (the video where it races a scirocco)

Hes strapped a jackson supercharger kit to it with a custom 12psi pulley, hondata ecu, bigger injectors, with toda manifold and dc sport exhaust, etc, etc and i think he said it was dynod at 312bhp at the wheels!

Hes spent around 5k so about half what iv spent, but thats just engine stuff.

You can get a supercharged civic on pistonheads for about £8k now.

Can I ask why have you spent that much on it when your not using it to its full potential , surely it just can't be worth all the effort , why not just buy another faster more well specked car , I don't understand

Its just a project now mate.

I bought it as a sensible car. It was owned for about 2 weeks and it got a stage 1 map. I soon got bored and went to stage 2 with all the trimming, blew the engine up so went with a fully forged engine supplied by rstuning. Once i got the engine i decided i wanted more power, so uprated the brakes to beable to cope with the power, so here we are £10k later...

What else would i have bought instead that nobody else would have?
