Well KC is going to hate me but I'm getting the stock one. Took it for a test drive at the weekend and I could not fault it on anything. It is as clean as a whistle save for the tiniest bits of surface rust at the hood hinges. Interior is spotless with just that familiar bulging of the centre console around the A/C unit. Drives perfect, idles like a dream!
I don't care if it is ugly at present. Cosmetically it won't stay stock for long but I have no plans for performance mods, I just want to keep it reliable.
Due to the new Environmental Protection laws, newly imported 6G VR4s can no longer be registered in Hong Kong until they are over 20 years old. So this car won't be eligible to be registered until around mid May. The seller is really cool though and says after I pay a deposit I can take the car and stick it in to have work done on it in the interim.
Car currently looks like this:-
Future mods are based purely on stuff I have lying around from the other build and don't want to waste: -
JDM Hood (hood will need a respray so I may respray bumpers and side claddings to match)
New Grille (probably Kevin's for this car)
5-lug swap and EVO 8 wheels in black
3KGT front brakes.
KCs Hybrid Headlamps
GTS 32 rear wing like this one
Rear Window Sun Visor,
Rain guards on side windows
Hi amp alternator
Koyo Evo III radiator
Refurbished JDM ECU
I might pull the ABS but I really am not sure on that yet.
I also want to black out the JDM Fogs, like these:-
