brakes are spot on mate. no screeching at all. heard a few people complain about noise but if you bed them in right you should have no problems. notice the way the discs are on aswell. maybe that might have something to do with it

brakes consist of

grooved discs all round
ferodo ds2500 pads all round
goodridge braided hoses all round
ate super blue brake fluid

got hold of a front upper strut brace ( to go with the 2 i already have on the back )

got it off someone on CTRO

how it was when i got it


decided to freshen the ends up, so from black to....



all fitted ( excuse the dirty bay )


also found a nice big split in my air pipe :'(

ordered a SFS blue silicone hose but it will take a few weeks to arrive. so its bodged up for now lol

also going to take the BMC off when i fit the new pipe and go back to the standard air box with hondadata mod

just fancy a change with the BMC

going for the ITG in the future so the hondadata is just a stepping stone. just fancy seeing what its like

defo going for a spoon oil cap and rad cap just like spending money on other things lol but they will come eventually

want something to cover the top of the struts to clean it up a bit but havnt seen any sort of covers for them

Edit:

well aint been on here for a while so thought id share a few new pics with a couple of new mods

first up some piccys after a clean. shame the pics were taken just as it was getting dusk so not much shine showing







had to change the air pipe as the OEM one split so went for a SFS hose. also changed the BMC for a ITG





supersprint unsilenced mid pipe was next. jesus was it LOUD with the spoon n1 tho, so back to standared back box

the back box had only done about 20k when i took it off but had a bit surface rust so thought id clean it up a bit before it went back on

as you can see a bit rust showing


even had a little helper lol


after the paint, looks miles better than when i started


all done


next up some tein springs to drop it a little


Before


After



pics were taken straight after the springs went on so its a little lower now they have had time to settle. wish i had got these sooner to be honest. looks miles better with a subtle drop and handles just that bit better now

last but not least got these buddy club wheels


they were shod in some yokos after being impressed with them on my other wheels. they are now on the car but no pics of them fitted yet

think thats just about covered everything lol
