    Hi

    Hi, I'm Matt, 25 from Derby. I've just bought a 54 plate 330Cd M Sport and loving it It's been standing a while so needed a good clean but just passed its MOT with a couple of easily-sorted advisories so I'm really happy with it

    Here's a pic of it when Mat (Previous owner) owned it,



    At the moment it has a K&N filter, bigger front mount intercooler and a remap to 260bhp/420 ftlb. The next thing for it really is to replace the exhaust with something a lot better flowing and then it should be up nearer 300bhp and 500ft/lb I hope, but I have to finish my other car first...

    Not sure how this is going to go down but I am a massive Honda geek, I also own a Honda Integra Type R DC2 which I've rebuilt from an almost bare shell and converted to K20 (2.0 6 speed 240ish bhp) since August. I work for a Japanese car parts specialist (Tegiwa Imports) am a Honda specialist mechanic on the side so it's been pretty quick progress





    And a pic of them together



    This is the first daily driver I've had that I can be proud of so I'm looking forward to attending some meets in it!

    Cheers, Matt

    Thanks, yeah they're chalk and cheese haha. The Honda is a lot faster though

    It has an Eibach pro spring kit on it, I've just replaced a couple of worn bushes on it this morning. To be honest I think it handles fine as it is, you can really throw it around and have absolute faith that it is going to grip. IMO it sits well on the 18s so not looking to do anything else on the chassis at the mo. Might look at importing a set of BBS LMs though when I'm feeling rich haha, we do containers from Japan every few months so I can sneak a set in for free shipping!

    I am on the lookout for an exhaust though after hearing how they sound with an Eisenmann or similar!
