Being near standard, the condition of this car shows evidence of indoor storage and the lack of stone chips, scratches to bumpers, zero scratches on wheels, expensive tyres (Bridgestone Potenza -
This Type R FD3S is as shown, in stunning condition and we're confident it'll be one of the very best examples in Europe, shortly. Mechanically it's only been lightly modified, with an ECU chip upgrade by Knight Sports (to run just over1 bar of boost) and a Knight Sports Legal Sports muffler. The rest of the performance modifications are handling, braking and cosmetics, with gauges and an audio system in the car too. An FD3S RX-
Exterior upgrades: The front bumper is Knight Sports' latest design, which is visibly inspired in it's ducting by McLaren. The ducting is for function too, since it enhances air flow to the oil coolers on either side of the bumper and also air flow through the radiator and intercooler. Being Knight Sports it's of excellent quality & fit. RE-
The rear spoiler is a To Bounds Type 1, which is adjustable for angle. It's of similar design to the original 1999+ rear spoiler, but this design suits the more aggressive Knight Sports front spoiler to a tee.
The overall effect of these styling upgrades combined with wheels, exhaust and lowered suspension makes for a stunning looking package. Finally, note the headlights have a PIAA HID conversion. This again is an expensive kit in Japan, clearly the previous owner was careful to choose quality regardless of cost, he simply wanted the best where he upgraded.
Engine Performance Upgrades: Although standard in engine mechanical & turbo specification, the previous owner selected some well chosen performance upgrades, which were supplied & fitted by our favourite tuner in Japan & our first choice for our own road going example: Knight Sports. They re-
Braking & handling Upgrades: To improve handling & braking, there's a set of Cusco coilovers. 17" Advan RG-
Interior Improvements: There are four neatly fitted Defi Advance black faced 60mm gauges for water temp, oil temp, oil pressure & turbo boost with the control unit hidden beneath the dashboard's centre console and the controller tidily placed just right of the steering wheel on the dash. These gauges are neatly housed in a KSP pod for the 3 centrally mounted gauges and a very rare (long discontinued) KSP boost gauge pod to the right of the instrument cluster.The hifi is a 200W Carrozzeria FH580, which plays CD/Radio/ USB and allows the user to set the desired colour for it's lighting. There's a cubby box instead of an ashtray, since the owner was a non-
Test Drive & Condition: This is a one owner car from new and has been regularly serviced and well maintained. With a recent oil change this car runs very sweetly. We drove this car several times before de-
It's incredible to see such condition on a car of this age, really but another indication of the care that has been lavished on it. Wheels are in near new condition and we found no scratches on any of the rims. The tyres are also near new and of top quality for Japan (very expensive too). All indicators show this car wasn't driven hard. There's also no corrosion at all to any of the wheels nor the underside, a sign this car's never been driven in salt or grit conditions. Inside, we could see this car has never been smoked in. There's not even an ashtray. Seats are in excellent condition with none of the usual bolster wear found on higher mileage examples. The boot also looks to have no marks and the spare + tools have never been used.
Externally there's one very light dent on the top of the passenger door near the handle (to be professionally removed as part of full UK preparation) and some stress cracks on the corner of the front bumper. These are only noticeable when looking closely and could be repaired if desired (at cost), but we feel it's better to wait some time and do the repair when stone chips, or such need repair in future. Being satin black, it's an easy colour to DIY repair too, which is useful.From the care it's had & the incredible condition, we know this car belonged to a mature owner since new who liked to have a nice performance car but hardly used it. It's evident this car was always well cared for and not driven hard and also been garaged since new. It's in stunning condition throughout.
