posted this over on OzHonda as well . . . . cheers

Well after nearly 8 weeks (since my accident) I finally took delivery of my brand spanking new White Orchid Luxury 6MT Euro.

With no white luxury manuals in WA or coming in any time soon and the prospect of waiting for one to come from the factory (estimated late August) I was desperate!

Thanks to Burswood Honda - they scoured the country and found one in Adelaide. After some delays with shipping, etc, etc, I was able to pick it up from Perth today.

Here are a few initial pics at the dealer and around the traps.

I got the Modulo Aero bar and sports grille and in the flesh it looks awesome and super sporty. Looking at lowering (not much), have already fitted the Enkei Raijins (no good pics yet) and cannot get over how much fun and how comfortable it is to drive. :cool: :)

love at first sight


3/4 profile is stunning




looked so good with the OEM wheels on I was tempted to stick with the stock wheels


anybody recognise this shot? - not expecting many of our American mates to come up with the goods!


baby waiting to get new shoes


rear


flush and needs a drop?


looks like lots of poke . . . but . . .


this doesn't look too bad


Stay tuned for more pics. I must say that the Raijins look heaps better in person - have heard that often on other forums - so it is my goal to capture that and bring it to the forum!! :)

Cheers

Why does every country in the world get a better CU2 than the states? SMH

Nice ride like the modulo, that front bumper is so nice

Awesome looking Euro,just persinally prefer the factory alloys.

Better luck this time around though...
Thanks for that Ant. When I first saw the OEM's I was like " . . holy [email protected] they look good!" and had a moments hesitation about taking them off. However in the flesh the Raijins look better, much better and it gives the car a wider and more compact looking stance.

One of my work colleagues (whose in-laws have a stock standard CU2 luxo) accused me of getting a special sport model and he swore black and blue that they were not the same shape! :)

cheers

I think the car and wheels look great. A subtle drop will be the cherry on top for sure. Congrats on the pick up!
Thanks man - I feel like it is Christmas in July! :D

Just have to wait a month or two for the drop - looking at Pro-kit for something subtle but not super stiff and will go easy on my stock shocks.

i agree!!!

cars looking good! what size rims?
Thanks man. 18x8.5 ET35 - just right size imho (but sorely wanted the deeper dish look that the 9.5 inch rims deliver!!) Would definitely have required a fender roll and pull, especially if lowered a bit.

What size tires are you running? I'm about to slap on 18x8 +38 VS-XX and I'm not sure what size tire should I put. I kinda want to put 225/45/18, but I recently lowered the car too. Also, is your car lowered? Thank You

Do you have the "fog light" in the left side tail light?
Do you have power / auto folding mirrors?
thanks

Hey mate - sorry for slow post - been out bush for a while. Tyres are 235 x 45/R18
i.e. they are stock boots.

not lowered, however have been considering - the wheels, offset and the larger tyres fill out the wheel well quite well so I am debating about lowering!

Cheers
Greg
