Had some time yesterday to go out to take some quick pics of the Type R with the full Mugen kit now on. I know what some of you might be thinking – “that’s not the full Mugen kit, you’re missing some pieces” – and I know but I just don’t consider two plastic covers on the front grill worthy enough to be part of the kit lol. Same with the carbon mirror covers. I think I’ll be eating my words down the road because something will compel me to end up getting them anyway to fill the Mugen void, but for now – I’m happy as it is and can live without those pieces…
This is the first time I’ve pulled the car out to actually see the wing myself in all its glory as well. After installing it, I hadn’t taken it out because the front lip was still with Nick after he painted it. It looked so weird and naked without the lip so I never bothered to pull it out. I ended up picking it up a few days ago and Tommy wrapped it in 3M for me yesterday. I got home and installed it pretty quickly and ceramic coated it all over again lol.
Anyway – not a whole bunch of shots cause I just drove around the neighbourhood quickly to get some full body shots. I’ll try to get out for a full photoshoot soon before the season ends.
While I do like the OEM wing, I think it starts to become out of place once it sits with the rest of the Mugen kit.
I love the profile of the wing. Different for sure.
I think one of my favourite views now is for sure the rear. It’s such a wacky (best word I can find to describe it) combination of Thanos chin, a weirdly angled wing and thicccccness I love the thing profile of the wing from the rear too. Everything ends up fitting so nicely.
Also enjoy this angle. Mugen wing or not, this is the best angle of the FK8. lol
And home together with the Fit. I absolutely love these two together. I wouldn’t say it’s my dream spec but it’s pretty damn cool to have a Mugen and a J’s Racing (almost) catalog car in the garage side by side.
It’s hard to choose what to drive lately… But for the most part, it’s been the Fit because it’s still “new” to me. It’s also fun as hell despite how slow it is compared to the Type R. After driving the Type R yesterday, it felt so tame and refined. It’s also hella quiet and comfortable lol. Weird to say that…
