What's the power like in comparison to the ep3 and fn2 as I know there meant to be a little more savage and less refined
I've never driven either and doubt I ever will tbh! I love my little 'basic' hatches too much! The electronics taking over everything just doesn't appeal to me at all. I'd certainly have an ek9 over an ep3 anyday too

Picker her up tonight from the bodyshop
It's gunna be pic overload city this weekend ha
This is literally straight out the bodyshop, so it's still covered in dust. I'll be washing and detailing it tomorrow...

















Photos are awful - I really cant do night time car park shots
SO happy with them, turnarounds been immense and everythings just perfect. He's replaced everything so it all sits right too After a polish, my bonnet and roof look horrendous, so many imperfections! - they'll have to be next on the list now! And if im doing those, the side skirts and bootlid may aswell be done too - Full respray then

full detail tomorrow

Looks like a nice job on the paint. The EK9 type r is one of the few hondas that I really like. Looks particularly good in black.

The photography will get better with practice. The first, fifth and sixth pictures you were getting it right and the car was looking it's best. You also got the right angles so that you didn't get your own reflection in the car. Not a bad thing in this case but generally you can make sure your reflection is hidden.

As mentioned above a tripod will help you steady the camera but you can still get it in shot.

Practice, practice practice is the key.....
