Your GTi looks nice. I'm an ex EP3 Type-R owner as well. I sold it 4 years ago but really missed NA engines so bought a DC2 Integra. Type-R's are more involving cars to drive fast and the handling and transmissions are superb. They are also surprisingly cheap to run if you get a well looked after car (hard to find now though).

The GTi is the better 'do it all' car, but reving a car to 9k rpm is a lot of fun.

As for your question..The honda is light with great handling..But you have to keep it high in the rev range to get the most out of the car..the gearbox is one of the best with the gear knob close to the driver for quick changes..put simply a drivers car...

As for the golf i'm loving it..I like the power from low down in the rev range it really puts you back...and the build quality is second to none. i'm going to enjoy modding this car...

hi....Another little update well first of all I decided I needed a new intake...and their are lots to choose from..as everybody is well aware I was looking at around the £300 mark. When I came across the Ramair kit. I know a few people on the forum already have this kit and at a bargain price of £155 why not so this arrived a few days ago.....



  IMG_0146 by deansinpost, on Flickr   



all fitted ... Well impressed with the build quality for such a low cost system.....


IMG_0151 by deansinpost, on Flickr

After fitting the kit was fitted.. I was toying with the idea of cutting the engine cover just like a lot of people have. But gave up because when I brought the car the previous owner had cracked the cover..so i might get a tt rs one I believe that fits..so decided to remove the oil cap neck so it sits flush a lot better I think

also the bonnet  lining was hanging down in places so got rid of that too...looks a lot cleaner now...


IMG_0153 by deansinpost, on Flickr


and last of all..Open Fog light gillies much better and a very good fit They should have come like this from the factory.....

Well Jayha.. just like you may have I have a long list..but I'm not going to rush this one..I do tend to rush building up cars and then get bored of them and end up selling..first thing first

New wheels .......in the shape of something bbs/maybe reps
suspension ........Eiback sportline springs/ no coil-overs this time round 
New Exhurst   ....power valve exhaust/liking that one over millteck system.

And I guess a few bits and bobs along the way...but thats the big stuff...

Hi another little update...headlights were looking very yellow so thought as a cheap fix for now replace the bulbs..the headlights themselves are OK. I guess for how old they are but will be upgrading them later...



IMG_0155 by deansinpost, on Flickr

It has made a bit of an improvement..........



IMG_0156 by deansinpost, on Flickr

also got rid of the yellow bulbs on the interior and changed to leds

IMG_0158 by deansinpost, on Flickr


a parcel arrived from awesome gti.................................

IMG_0164 by deansinpost, on Flickr

IMG_0165 by deansinpost, on Flickr

So decide to replace the spark plugs with BKR7EIX so at the same time decided to replace the coil packs not that theirs anything wrong with mine but as my car as 119k on the clock some new ones were in order..will keep old ones as spares i guess.



IMG_0171 by deansinpost, on Flickr

And all fitted looking much better and feeling better too.....



This also arrived from germany...........


IMG_0166 by deansinpost, on Flickr

my rear wiper delete kit...awesome bit of kit I must say. its one of those mods you love or hate I was not sure at first but with all the other mods planned it will fit in nicely..... I have not pictures yet but it is all fitted and save a little weight....
