    After selling most parts and saving up a little only had a budget of 5-6k for a new Honda
    Always wanted a EG hatch but waited for the right one.
    and then a mate of mine msged me saying he has a EG5 Vti for sale for a great price so I grabbed it straight away

    Mechanically was in decent condition stock D16Y1 motor, sunroof and interior was clean but the only bad point of it was the paint as you can see in photos.
    Clear coat was peeling every part of the car.
    So the very first thing I did was give it a full respray . A slight different black was told its an S2000 Berlina Black

    Few days down
    A friend of mine was selling his eg so i asked him for his duckbill
    Offered him swaps with my stock spoiler cash his way.
    Drove about an hour there and hour back from where i lived and picked it up
    The clear coat on it wasnt in the best shape so i gave it few layers of clear coat

    When I first purchased this car Ive made a decision on what set of wheels to get.
    From the very start the plan was to get a set of Enkei Silver RPF1's
    But recently a friend of mine offered me his set of Work Meisters that I could not deny
    This set was privously owned by a close friend of mine and was White with a little damage but my other friend that bought it off him fixed the damages and powder coated to Lambo Titanium and wrapped in new Nankang semi slicks

    As these wheels were powdercoated the "Work" stickers have been removed so i had ordered them few days ago and they arrived at the perfect day when i picked up the wheels

    As much as i want to run these wheels right now after test fitting them with stock suspension and height the wheels are putt aside for now
    I probably buy a set of king springs temporary and upgrade to Coilovers in the near future

    This is how the car is now
