I found it on a salvage site and just had to have it, its done 33k GENUINE mileage, log book arrived the other day, 1 owner, i was like wow wee!!


Image



it is really clean and i havnt washed it yet,its paintwork is in good condition, there is a rust patch on either rear arch but only surface so its not going to be a problem restoring him!
When i got it back it started first turn of the ermmm, lol, switch??

tow bar is DEFO coming off, will be putting it up for sale someone on here will want it to go with their roofrack etc.
fog lights i might leave for now. get them HID'd!
its got a 2nd numberplate and numberplate bulbs/housing built onto the rear centre light cluster, annoyingly its going to leave open holes in the cluster as this was where the bolts were for the whole plate set up. so if anyones got a centre light cluster for me HELP!!
The mileage was such a good find, a truly one off. i am pretty sure i OWN one of if not THE LOWEST mileage ED 1616 in the country. quite a big statement but someone prove me wrong!!
more pics to come!!!

Also bought me a nearly new 4-1 manni,hopefully this should release some sleepy horses out the engine:-

Image

Image

Got my momo to put on aswell maybe tomoro!! NEED A MOMO BOSS IF ANYONE HAS ONE!!

Image

Will keep up with the progress as things go on,next to do:--
#fit momo

#its done 1500 or less miles a year so im not sure wetha to service it if im planning a 18c4 or 6 conversion so do i service the 1.6 or just give it death!!

Good work, if you need any tips on tuning the a9 then give me a shout as mine is pretty brisk :)

Thts really good news to hear,my plan engine wise is;-

#-Fit manni and straight through 2 1/2" exhaust
#-panel filter. which brand???
#-Good set of leads? again,any good makes? earthed or not earthed?
#Might service it,im not sure whetha to bother as its done 33k and its had like 25 HONDA services,done like 1500 miles a year,the oil in the engine is transparent and im not just saying that,come friday ill have some more pics for you guys.
#-Put some decent plugs in? any ideas?

It should be pretty quick to be fair!!
