Thinking of getting the Spec R actually as the Torques will be slightly out of budget.

Some updates real soon (that you know about  :P)

Hi Joe,

Cant really say for sure about the mpg with the K&N filter as I started a new job which involved longer distance travelling which helped the mpg.

See this post for some info as I've been tracking my FuelSaver consumption.

As for performance, maybe its all in my head but I do feel its improved slightly and more torque, and slight increase in noise but I dont mind that coming from a modded EP3 Civic Type R  ;D

Looking great! Those are awesome looking seatcovers. Looks pricy but the results are just plain awesome. Would love to have like those.


Kat my dear- these are not seat covers- they are proper recaro bucket seats!

Hi James,

Sources for my GE are as follows:

J's Racing (replica) front lip spolier- Solomon Brothers Singapore
J's Racing front strut bar- Touge Distribution
Bride seat rails- Touge Distribution
J's Racing oil and rad cap- Sumo Power
Recaro- forums
DC2 gear knob- forums
Mugen pedals- personally bought from shop in HK
Key cover- ebay seller from Japan
Eibach lowering springs- local autocar garage
K&N filter- POTN website
Wheels (next week or so)- forums

If you're getting a GD- theres a UK company called Replikit that does replica Mugen bodykits, but they dont have anything for the GE just yet :(

Thanks!! u know much about replikit?? fitment and quality of products etc??? the rear M spoiler looks nice and at a reasonable price too =)

What wheels u looking to fit onto ur GE??? ive sourced a set of bronze volks ce28n!

im guessing the bride seat rails must have cost loads!!! im looking to fit DC5 recaros into mine but seems a very expensive venture to pursue especially as this is my daily commuter  8)

No- I dont know much about Replikit apart from that they are a UK based company that does bodykits for the Jazz (GD). However, reading around, they seems to be quite reputable so I cant see them being a problem.

obviously, the best solution is to pop down to their workshop and get them to fit the bodykit (or whatever parts you want) but realise this isnt practical due to location.

WOW- CE28N- thats well  8) How did you manage that one James? What size? condition? pics? Do you mind where you got them and price you paid? (PM if you prefer) They are well nice and proper JDM!!

As for me, I should be getting my hands on some Enkei NT03 15 x 7 ET 35 with Toyo T1R 205/50/15

Teaser pics:


The Bride rails were pretty expensive (crappy FX rate etc) but I couldnt see/find an alternative. I contacted Recaro UK, who referred me to Recaro Germany, and then they referred me to Recaro Japan, only to be told they dont have anything for the GE just yet. Tried other companies as well but hand no luck. So Bride it was!

As my previous car was a modded EP3 with the 30AE all red recaro, and I had that for 7.5yrs, I was so use to the recaros that it was such a shock going to the standard Jazz seat. Now that the recaros are in, I just feel so much more "at home". The Jazz is my daily drive and granted its not that fast (compared to my EP3), but with all my mods to date, I'm loving it as much as the EP3. DC5 recaros and Evo MR recaros are very similar, but you pay a very high premium for the Honda ones. Evo ones can be had for cheaper- thats what I did :)
