I don't have a FD2R but I have a DC5R.

You can search for info on overseas Type-R forums or local FB pages, or even Youtube.

I saw a few on mudah but very hard to find a non modded one. Just wondering if there is closed forum somewhere which people go to.. might have better options there.

A nice car. But I think you have to pay the 80k cash for these cars.. which is kinda heavy.

Thought of it but......abit too much to risk given that I have relatives who died cause of it. Parents would definitely lose their minds....

1. Stock FD2R not easy to find
2. Under 10 years can loan, just don't expect 90%

The car you are interested is below 10 years? Anyway prepare a sum of money for these cars for repairs, they tend to be abusived instead of sedated driving.

Tips for you,
After the car is hot (maybe after 15 minutes of driving), revv the engine to 5k rpm a few times while looking at the exhaust when stationary. If white smoke/blue smoke comes out, the engine is about worn out (full overhaul required).
Also during first start, if there is a puff of smoke no matter how big, the valve seals are worn out (top overhaul required)

Don't really expect the car to be driven in a civilized manner but also don't expect the car to be driven as though the world is ending tomorrow. Just looking for balance.....

Yeah.....would be wary of those signs....Basically, I'm currently driving a 14 year old Accord as well with 310k km already and am looking to go slow with this car. Will reserve it for long distance driving as I commute between PG and KL pretty often........while the FD2R will be for zipping through short distance.....

As for the loan, anybody has any experience on getting a loan for a car beyond 10 years?

Owner who join forum/group won't stay stock/original. You should try your luck at branded cars dealer like BMW and so on.

Also, I don't think you're serious here. Did a quick search and it do appear https://www.carlist.my/used-cars/2008-honda...eat-car/2731295
