Type R (mine) VS P1 V 22B

I'm considering to sell my Type R and I was wondering what is better.. Everyone seems to say that the Type R is the best of the three, but with the hassle I'm having with this 6 speed box, I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as I'd hoped

Any ideas guys and gals??

Something like that mate.. But which one is better? I notice the P1 didnt have the center diff control, is that right?!

Whats the diff with the 22B then? What makes that so special compared to the P1 or Type R?

a p1 is basically a type r thats had all the nice jap bits taken off , ie dccd . But it's had a few nice bits from prodrive put on ie , wheels , front end , rear spoiler , suspension ....etc
Now the 22b is another step up from the type r , different suspention , brakes a few mods to the engine i think plus an ajustable rear wing & not forgetting the lovley wide arches ............... 8) 8)
If i was you phil i'd keep the type r & start saving if you really like the 22b as you can add 10k + on top of your car for one & thats just a jap import not a uk car ............ :wink:

So whats a 22B UK model going to set you or I back?

I think with that the parts I'm going to be changing, I'm going to be basically having a 22B but with a 6 speed box!! Now the rear arches, would that cost a lot to have done?

22b also has a 2.2 litre engine... think thats right... if you can afford one of em go for it... something completly different in style / handling / engine to the norm... absolutly stunnign motor....
