That's a tough choise. If you just want to drive fast, the R is a good choise. The s2k is a little more fun because it's rwd. And it's more comfy, and I think it looks better.

It all depends on the amount of money you want to spend. Both cars are great. The only thing I realy miss after selling the R, is the brutal vtec kick, and sometimes the space in the back

The black things in front of the headlights are something all cars with xenonlights must have here... Don't know the english word, but they are there to flush/clean the headlights.....

could they be headlight washers? thats what they look like. mainly the higher end luxury cars here in the US come with them. My VW GTI came with them.

^^^^^ In europe those headlight washers are a must because the country rounds out there suck so your **** gets mad dirty. Most new cars in europe come equiped with them. our cars dont have them here cause theres really no need. And the luxury cars have them here just as an extra feature think about it I have never seen anyone use them here in the u.s. Its just like volvo having lil headlight wipers its pointless over here in the u.s.

Oh and btw the top looks sick

Wow, no wonder people worry about flooding the eninge with AEM intakes.
Didn't realize it looked like this after cutting the plastic to get more air... It was optional, so I had to do it



Removed the hood insulation today. Looks cleaner, and gives more of that good engine sound

It's just as high as all the other pics. The camera angle is messing with you

I share that same opinion. It FEELS slower, but I guess it's just because it has a different power band. My R had some good bolt-on's, and I felt a bigger kick when the vtec hit. And it had shorter gears, at least the first gear....

But aside from from that, I'm very happy with it. RWD is more fun

I've only tracked it once, and it was pooring rain, but I drove much faster then with my R, so I guess it works as it should.


I'm gone get a new final drive this winter, so I will get shorter gears
That's the only thing I miss now....

Y so he can spend more money to only lose power???

I agree with his decision 99%, I would have gone with Injen instead of the AEM, but thats just me...


OP: ohh and another thing... are you running stock lug nuts with your Volks... if so, take them off IMMEDIATELY!!! get yourself some tuner lugs ASAP!!! the obvious choice would be the Volk lugs...

ohh and ur car looks s3xy

The AEM is cheap, and gives good sound and performance. It was supose the be the V2 version, but Kingmotorsports sendt me the old version.... Don't know how they messed it up...

And, I'm not using stock lug nuts. I use some cheap black ones... Volks are too expensive.... Not worth it in my opinion.

did you get money back??? I would have been pissed...

well according to this pic, they look like there stock:



also, just curious how you dont think there worth it, when you spent 2g's on nice *** rims only to cheap on the part that holds them on... also, the volk lugs are extremely light... they do shave off a little more than a pound and a half for all 4 wheels which is pretty good for rotational mass... and they complete the look... id def go with a set,... i did and im really happy with them

Those aren't stock nuts. Just something I used for a few days...
I don't think the stock nuts even fit Volk rims. They use different cones.

I'm not saying the Volk nuts are a total waste of money, but to me they aren't worth the $$

The nuts I use now are very light too. About the same weight as the Buddy Club nuts.... And extremely cheap. I could get 10-15 sets of those nuts for the price of a Volk set

edit.

Here you see the black nuts.

Oh, I thougt the volks costed more... But I also have to pay 25% tax, and freight to get it to Norway. So then it would cost me $170-180....

The ones I use cost about $20 here in Norway. In the US they would probably coast halvf the price, since everything is extremely expensive here
