Thank goodness we don't have DCT, MFT, TiVCT, etc cluttering up the 2nd gen forum.

If anything, we've got the best cars here.
When done right best looking cars as well!

Digging the stripes man. Sticker on windshield is too big for my taste though.

I couldn't agree with that more! There are a few members of the second gen crowd that belong on the honda forums lol but for the most part people here do our cars right, sleek, yet sporty looking.

I hear you about the lack of posts on the MK2 thread. I do visit this site, but I just spend my time reading about all the weird problems on the MK3 and thank my lucky stars I have a rock reliable...

Some nights FF is slow others my phone gets notifications every five mins. Just gotta get around the forums more and talk it up. I hang out in almost all the sections no matter what I drive. we all share the same passion. Nice ride BTW.

Like someone else says of your board hit up that "New posts" button.

Haven't been as active as I used to be but here are a few new "mods"

Rear disk break conversion.... Still haven't hooked up my e-brake

Also traklite rims (changed them out for stock 17's for winter) and rally armor mudflaps that are helping me keep A LOT of crap off the whip.
