Currently waiting on the boat to take it to Ireland!
I had been bidding on stock Bb's and then saw this one come up and had to have it. Its a 2003 and I hope to have it on the road here next month or early October.

At the moment Im just trying to find out as much information on it as possible and to start getting some parts together before it arrives, I have an FN2 Type R civic as a daily driver so I'd like to mod the Bb and make it something special.

I dont like the chrome mirrors so they'll definitely be going, and I'd like to get a stock looking spoiler on there too and possibly change the rear tail lights to led's and Im unsure about the wheels for the time being too.

I'll update this thread with more pictures ect when it arrives!

I'd love to get some engine work done and have a nice little wolf in sheep's clothing but its going to depend on how easy/hard it is to get hold of parts for it over here.

WOW! Congrats! Probably the coolest bB you can possibly get. I really like the wheels. 16's?
If you get it can you please post the pn# of the ECU- there was some discussion on here recently regarding the upgraded TRD computer that this car is supposed to have.

Congrats on yhe new ride. Im pretty sure the mirrors are just covers but even if they are they might not be in very good shape after ripping them off the oem mirrors.

I'm taking a guess the owner just removed the radio and fitted a blanking plate. Japanese radios won't work on our bands here so I would have needed a new one either ways.

Yep the wheels are 16's, I'f I can't get a picture of the p/n I'll take it when I get the car.

I'm abit worried about the supposedly modified ecu. Unleaded petrol in Ireland is a max of 95ron or E5 Which is allegedly 98 Ron but even so a lot of jap performance cars suffer from knock on our fuel without a remap.

Wow that thing is awesome. Shame on Toyota for not giving up cool options.
Can you guys not import cars from Japan into the USA? Apart from the steering wheel being on the wrong side would there be much to it?

hmmm interesting so much I would like to learn! well it seems like it's just a turbocharged 1NZ-FE, but 150hp is pretty respectable
