2 Years ago a 2005 Type-S was purchased after driving 3.5 hours from DC to NJ as I had to find the perfect VBP for me. This was the car I was going to leave alone and keep stock... but that didn't happen. I have to find the purchase pictures later.

Build Purpose:
Auto-X
Daily Driven
Balance (I am a huge fan of building balanced cars. I can do everything a stock cars can do ;))
Not really a show car so I'll save that till I'm happy with the performance ;)

How it looks now (no more splitter though):

After all my header swapping/experimenting fun I took this picture when they were all out between the install (DC5 Type-R, Spoon and PLM front left to right):
