I imported this to the UK in 2016, at 19200 miles. It's now on 53400, and a joy to drive, as long as there are bends! In Japan, it was registered and sold as a "330s", basically copying a UK uprated model of the time. That consisted of Cusco sway bars, a HKS mid pipe, and numerous STI options.
I have had a custom open source map for UK fuel, one step colder spark plugs, HKS actuator, Perrin fpr, AEM panel filter, Samco airbox pipe, and RCM fuel pump, seeing 357bhp on an oem catalyzer

.
The sway bars and drop links have been uprated again to 22mm adjustable, and STI front and rear flexible support and strengthening kits added, similar to the R205. Other options were Recaro seats, STI rear sports muffler, STI front lip spoiler.
Future plans will involve a titanium single exit exhaust and Sard sports catalyzer, heat management, water/meth injection, and AP racing brakes.

Thanks. Calipers were, and are, gold. It's the only distinguishing mark on a spec C. Sorry for the delay in replying.

Thanks. As it is Jdm, it has twinscroll headers which are equal length, so no rumble, pretty quiet until you open it up, and then it sounds more like a Jap bike. The back box is an Sti option. Planning to swap to a straight through titanium exhaust shortly, saving 26lbs. It's a different car from the UK or US versions....2.0l engine, twinscroll, lightened glass, small battery, aluminium hood, no sound insulation, 13:1 quick rack, chassis and bushings uprated, vf53 etc
