    Flew over to Ireland last week to pick up this Mugen kitted CL1 Accord. Still yet to have it registered here in the UK, but that hasnt stopped me from taking it out for a jaunt along some backroads.

    So i got the car back after a long day travelling to Dublin then to the port for the ferry and a six hour drive back up to Scotland from holyhead in Wales. What a great scenic drive. The weather was spot on and the car didn't miss a beat or use any oil.
    After all the stories i've heard about people buying rotters from Ireland i was somewhat skeptical and anxious about this car and its history before arriving. turns out the car is in tip top condition apart from a bit of paintwork needing done. It flew through its MOT on Wednesday with no advisories. Also had it round to Automek for an inspection and check the wheel geometry (Small Adjustment). Its a really clean chassis with no rust anywhere or signs of bumps/welding. This purchase has payed off.

    Heres few pics that i have taken on my phone, i apologise for crap quality, going to take the car round to my dads tomorrow and spend the weekend ,tar removing and clay barring with a good polish and wax. will take more pictures this weekend.

    Got a few plans for the car, once its registered its gonna go on the rollers for a few power runs. wouldn't mind the odd track day before the summer is out to see where it can be improved.

    - Aftermarket Shifter
    -H2b S80 Conversion
    -Bracing
    -Coilovers
    -ECU/Remap

    Cheers man , bit the bullet after getting through to the guy. dont understand why all the cool Cl1's are in Ireland ? yawl must love your cool five doors.

    Last time i read Ross there are two in nighthawk registered within the UK. It could quite possibly be the only one in Scotland, a very rare car indeed. are your Advans in 17'' that would literally make my day.

    Isnt the worst , takes a bit of getting used to. You have a switch for the EPS to make it heavier or lighter, to be honest i feel no difference.

    Lovely Cl1.

    Drive the buddys a fair bit and love the Lighter EPS setting, effortless

    Do you mind me asking what firgure you gave? a rough estimate would do, My buddy is thinking of selling hers to the UK
