Here's a shot or two of the RA that I picked up last week - April 18, 2018.

Bought it fresh off of the truck, pre-PDI, so please pardon the roof, wing, wheels and anything else that's still covered up.



I had to have it delivered, couldn't leave my office to pick up the car - Empire Towing FTW!

The RA is garage queen status, my GD is living the daily life - nothing new or exciting for now.

I'm looking into a few things for the RA, but it'll be a little while before I start putting some money into it - namely because I just don't want to touch it.

I hope you get one man, do it!!!!

Updates!

I sold my GD in February of this year and bought a '15 Honda Civic Si as my new daily.

Last weekend I finally rolled the RA out, for its first detail ever; the RA wasn't even dirty, dusty at most, but it was nice to see it shine.

Yes, all the factory interior plastic covers are still in place, along with the window sticker. Mileage is 7.2.

Quick Shots of the detail!

First of all I am still sad to hear about you selling the GD STi :cries: But how come you haven't driven the RA yet? I mean 7.2 miles? Come on man... That's a SIN!

That has to be the lowest sold RA in the States.

Also here for the Si

I'm still sad over selling the GD myself, but I appreciate the empathy bro!

I know, you're absolutely right - it is a sin! As crazy as it sounds, I'm perfectly content with the car being parked (at least for now) while I navigate some trying family matters.

I've already amassed quite a few parts for the car and will, at some point, get to taking the car out. At least that's the goal, but it's definitely nice having the lowest mileage RA in the U.S. (most likely). xD

About two weeks ago I picked up the STi performance exhaust, STi rear quarter spoilers, STi carbon trunk trim and STi side skirts. There's a couple other items I'm waiting for, but I also picked up a Quick Jack lift for the RA as well.

I don't have any photos of the Si, but I'll get some posted soon enough. I've always been a Honda fan and was quite happy to have found a '15 Si with a little under 23k miles and one owner with amazing service history - bought it within a few days of selling the GD and love how fun it is, even if it's slow.

Thanks man, it was a gem in its prime; I never imagined I'd sell it, even after I had torn the build down and rebuilt, to an extent, but it was time. It's got a good new home, couldn't ask for more than that.

Nice man, it wasn't too warm up there when I was there too. Thank you Jesus.

Sorry man. Didn't know about the family matters.

Glad you picked up some parts for the RA! I'd like to get a Quick Jack lift but I don't even have a driveway so no point now in me getting that lol

It's all right bro, you had no way of knowing, no need to apologize! I've simply had my hands full of some not so fun things, but those matters will eventually pass and things will be better. For now, the RA is a solid stress reliever just getting to detail things on it, it's quite therapeutic!

Yes, I was happy I finally got around to getting a few things and seem to find myself wanting more and more for the RA - despite it having not really moved all that much since I bought it.

I still need to assemble my Quick Jack, another thing to do on my list of things to do that I never can actually get to. It will happen though!

My goal for the RA, if a proper build comes of it (still torn on modifying or leaving it alone) would to focus on a weight reduction build, with JDM items if possible haha.
