Couple of weeks ago, a member and friend, Brian came up to Auckland on a parts mission. We got together, caught up and took photos.

Brian, after having the 2007 Honda Civic Type R groomed and looking clean, sent me a text message to see if I was free and wanted to take some snaps of the FD2R. A few messages later, with a time and location organised, we met up and whilst having a catch up and talking smack, I took the following photos.

Brian hasn’t owned this particular Honda for too long, but has added a few touches to personalize this unique model to make it his own, with plans for many more modifications in the future.

18×7.5 Advan Connoisseur 151c all round in a custom red by GTRefinishers, Brian didn’t want anything too aggressive so he could preserve the handling characteristics of the Type R.

Up front the Genuine Backyard Special front lip is a perfect fit and the shape follows the factory lines of the car perfectly!

After having a good ol’ chat, Brian left to meet up with another friend to collect some car parts. It’s always a pleasure when another member and friend graces us with their presence. And it was great catching up with Brian!
Brian would like to thank his partner Leanne, Moonlight Racing and GTRefinishers!
