Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Highly sought-after car holds value very well. Performance-wise, nothing even come close with this sort of money. Insurance is hell expansive.
Fuel economy is very good if you don't thrash it hard. It eats front tyres.
On the road
Supurb driving position and visibility. It gives you the thrill no other car can give you.
Unbelievably quick for a 1.8 engine. Superb handling and steering.
Living with it
100% reliable mechanically and electronically.
Only people who know cars will know it. To most others, it's just a normal Honda with boy-racer's spoiler.
Very stiff suspansion, very firm and bumpy ride in town though it has more comfort than I expected. Anyway, comfort is not an issue for a strip out racer, right? It has room for 4 and a big boot, what can you complain about?
Security and Service
Cat 1 alarm + immobiliser fitted. Steering wheel lock used every time as I don't have a garage. Security on this car worries me a bit, but so far it's ok.
Generally friendly and helpful, though not as good as a local garage I used to go.
