    There is a wealth of information and very helpful members on our site. If you get stuck, just ask.

    Seriously? Their must be something going on around your parts, I haven't seen one on the road in many months! Sounds like spare parts shouldn't be too hard to source :Laughing:

    That is reassuring to know, they are quite susceptible to the tin worm, but otherwise ultra reliable cars.

    You may find the window rubbers are discontinued, but worth giving @Holdcroft Honda a call, as for the alloys - I'm sure they can be refurbished :Smile:

    If I'm honest I did try to find the engine out of one to go in mine after the wife passed I i don't need to ferry the kids round then I saw how low the numbers were and though best leave it in case a Type-R owner needs one lol

    Aha, that's a pretty charitable act, though if you do decide to go that route in the future - I know of a few people with engines to spare :Smile:
