    When did you buy the car?

    November 2012

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I have much experience with these cars as have previously owned two Civic Aerodeck VTIs and an ESI N reg.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Because I am yet to find a more reliable manufacturer than Honda and the VTI-S is a very good performer as a fast road car whislt still returning 32mpg from 170bhp DOHC that revs to 8,500rpm - it's amazing, basically it's a detuned Integra Type R for £800 - amazing!

    What was the dealer like?

    Normal chap just wanted to change for something cheaper.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    With the standard ARB and shocks/springs a little unresponsive but I swapped mine out for Integra Type R set-up - another good reason to buy is that the are interchangeable parts with higher spec models.

    What's it like to park?
