The visible bits of dash look strange, is it alcantara or something wrapped? And more importantly (sorry) is it hiding some damage on the dash (guess it's impossible to get anyone to tell you this honestly, though)?

I personally don't like the look of the blue calipers and it looks like the steering wheel has been polished one too many times (I like a nice factory-matte steering wheel :D) but that's my personal preference.

85 000km is good though, and it otherwise seems to be in good shape from the pictures. Try to see if they'd take R220 000? :D

Please guys, can we get this poor person a FN2 already :).

Have you considered an FK2, though? Looks like they're starting to reach the same prices as those you're looking at for FN2s: https://www.cars.co.za/for-sale/used/20 ... s/4786671/ - I realise that's a lot more KMs, but it's also 5 years younger.

Hi Shrimp.

Thanks for the input. Test drove the car:
The dash has some alcantara wrap, 1st i saw an alcantara fn2 dashboard.
Best deal on the price, R230000.

New OEM Honda clutch + honda flywheel fitted.

Dashboard info display (the one displaying time, etc.) also replaced (they showed honda invoice and oem info display, R7K i think on invoice).

Just wanna make sure... All the feedback much appreciated.
