I'm not sure of exactly how I want to build my car, but I'm kind of leaning towards something similar to a Spoon Sports build but with my own twist.

Below are a few pics I've taken.

I will be updating the list of parts over time.

Oh wow, you managed to get a Hatch ST 6MT. Did you have to wait a long time to get one in? Any mark up over MSPR?

Edit: Also, would you mind taking more photos of your car, please? The bronze on white is a great look that I'm thinking of doing.

I also see you downsized from 235's to 225's. Any reason? Fuel economy benefits? Has the handling changed?

It probably took me maybe a month to find the car. Most dealers in my area only had it in Sonic Pearl Grey. I got lucky going into the dealer to try and reserve one and they had gotten that the day before.

There was a markup with dealer installed accessories, but was able to have them price match another dealer’s pricing that was way lower.

I’ll try to take more pictures, but I normally don’t unless I’m modifying or changing anything.

The downsize wasn’t intentional, I had those wheels and tires previously on my 10th Gen Civic. The wheels are 1/2” wider than the stock 18” wheels, but haven’t noticed much of a change in handling or fuel economy. I plan on getting new tires eventually, but that’s what was on the wheels and they’re still pretty new.

Small update on my car, I have installed the Acuity Shifter Cable Bushings and upgraded the shifter base bushings, but went with the Seeker Super Shift Collar bushings from Japan. Instead of aluminum bushings like Acuity, these are made of urethane. Zero vibrations what so ever and it gets rid of the spongey feeling when shifting. The shifting feels even better with these upgrades.

I also removed the resonator from the intake air box and charge pipe and installed the PRL Resonator Delete Kit, does increase noises from the intake and turbo, but its nothing significant.

I almost forgot, I also did a chrome delete as well.

Added door sills to my 2023 Sport Touring. They are apparently stainless steel and from Honda Access Europe. Liked them a lot better than the illuminated ones or the film door sills. They are a little pricey with the exchange rate and international shipping, but look so good.

Here is the site I bought them from.

Also, I finally dusted off the KTuner V2. Still running a stock tune, but I reduced the rev hang.

Just had a set of Spoon Rigid Collars installed on my FL1. Definitely a worth while upgrade. Its weird, but the car feels more planted and stable, but there is a softness to it. There does seem to be a little less road noise and NVH as well. I'm really liking it.

The shop I had it installed at told me that they've installed different rigid collar kits from other companies, but not from Spoon and that the Spoon kit was probably the best one they've seen in regards to quality.

Now I gotta decide what's the next upgrade to do.

Saw your FL1 on Fitment Industries...Great looking car man! I'm on about the same track with mine, just picked it up so I'm working on some very small interior/exterior mods at the moment. PRL HVIS and Remark catback are next I think.

Thanks, appreciate that.

Nice! I'm leaning towards a Spoon build myself or at least close to it.
