    I haven't post anything for quite sometime, here is some update to the car (JDM EK4),

    Real Racing R2 wheels, (very rare forged wheels), 15"x6.5 +45 offset

    Aragosta suspension, first time getting a good suspension!! F:5K R:6K (yes that is original setting from Aragosta). It is very comfortable on the street and ok on the mountain road!!

    Spoon calipers, finally putting it back on the car. No spacer needed with this R2 wheels.

    nice ek, whats it like owning a EK (especially a bright yellow one) in HK? am tempted to get one when i move back myself. but heard about police always stopping the civics and the silvias alot for illegal mods?

    Love the wheels. Was considering buying a yellow ek4 aswell, but went for grey, the wheels suit your car to the ground.

    Thanks guy!!

    Got that suspension from Yahoo Japan.

    I plan to keep it nice and clean. I had the engine rebuilt this year, replaced all the bushing and repainted the car 2 years ago. It is almost like a new car now!! I Might hit the track when a chance come up!

    Yes, drive a yellow EK hatchback is like a police magnet. 2 years ago i got my car impounded and had to restore to the car back to stock. It was painful experience and hurt my wallet!!
