My 6th Gen EK

I just got done putting in the new pedals, footrest, shift ****, shift boot, handbrake and handbrake boot. Gave it wash, cleaned inside, feels fresh

Some will say the ****/handle are rice, but I'm going to say they're smoking something others don't have.










and my r/c cars, just to share

Car looks good...nice and clean....needs a drop though!! Also pick up a set of OEM floormats!

Lovin' the carbon fiber body on the RC

Re: My 6th Gen EK

lol those are oem floormats. Either the logo is faded or the camera settings didn't help, made everything bright.

But yes KYB AGX shocks/struts, H&R springs, and Skunk2 pro front/rear camber kit(come with polyurethane bushings) are next.

can't wait

Re: My 6th Gen EK

i thought 'EK's were the hatch, and the couple/sedans had a different coding...

the car looks great, nice and clean....i'm not a fan of the fake CF...but it looks good as a combo there.

the ebrake handle looks good, i just don't care for the fitment (the small stock button sticking out of a loarge opening...

well I've asked/searched numerious times and I've heard hatch/coupe for both ej's/ek's.

I will fill the gap from the momo handbrake/stock button. Just get some rubber, create a hole for button and glue/jb weld rubber to inside of tip of handle. I'll probably get the button painted black as well.

lol. well, i thought the hatches are EK6, but are called EK9 because the Type R is EK9...lol.

but yeah, check your vin...says there...

but it's good to hear that you're planning on doing something with that gap....not just someone throwing stuff on their car, and saying 'look at me!' good to hear that you want to make things fit properly
