EK9 Civic Type Rx & VW Golf MK4 R32
Good morning all

Long time EK9 fan, and finally after relocating to the UK I found myself in a position to acquire one. I found myself a 99 Type Rx which is happily at home alongside my other dream, a VW Golf MK4 R32. I am the second UK owner of the vehicle and it's currently on 158 000km (+-98200 miles). The vehicle came originally with some tacky extras fitted and no service booklet so I got straight to work and have done the following in my 2 months or so ownership :

Spoon ECU
Spoon blue wide angle side mirrors
Spoon blue rear view mirror
Spoon strut bar
Spoon magnetic drain plugs
Spoon replica valve cover
Spoon reservoir socks
Spoon radiator cap
Motul coolant flush
Tegiwa header (Toda copy)
Skunk2 plug cover
Tegiwa silver dress up washers
Yellowspeed coilovers
Black battery tie down
Black radiator stay
Spark plugs
Ignition leads
Honda transmission fluid
Honda oil filter
HKS engine oil
Skunk2 oil cap
Pro ram black filter
Pro ram black silicone coupler
Black silicone hose
Tegiwa 15mm front spacers
Tegiwa 20mm rear spacers
Tegiwa black coolant hoses

I left the M2 whale peni* intake (albeit with some tasteful changes from red silicone to black), the ASR Beaks subframe brace, tie bar ,skunk2 LCAs and Spoon N1 style exhaust (can't find any info on manufacturer)

It's a work in progress and I could not be happier so far, I signed up hoping to get a little info into some things that were not clear in all the google searches as most pertained to GSRs or B16A2s on HT, but will post up in the right section.

Car looks well and you've already done some tasteful mods. Looking forward to seeing how it progresses further.

Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated :)

Not much has gone on apart from replacing the N1 style exhaust with a J's Racing C304 catback and awaiting arrival of my BNIB Toda A cams due this afternoon!
