    What car to choose?

    Ok...so I'm selling my car soon (this month or during next) and i'm looking at gettin a new car.

    I've wanted an Sri-T for ages now...like ever since like october and it's been my priority to get.

    HOWEVER....

    after going to a Jap car show the other week (JTS at Silverstone) i was met with a Civic Coupe (like the ones in Fast and Furious 1 - the black ones used to hijack the trucks) and also ones in a supersonic hedgehog blue with carbon bonnets. Now these cars look fooooking lush as well right.

    Heres the Dilemma.........
    Either get an Sri-T.....or get a civic coupe (Em1) and change the engine to a b18c (if any of u know what that is...those who don't...its the same engines they use in the integra type R). Also plans would be to turbo it....if not too expensive.

    What you guys think the better option would be.....handling...speed...acceleration....looks... quality etc etc etc.

    And please.....don't be biased!

    you could always go mental and buy a robin reliant and spend the left over money on pimpin it out to the max

    (summat i'm determined to do before i die lol)

    being sensible though maybe you should take a civic for a test drive and weigh up the pro's and cons for each??

    Get the SRi Turbo or just buy a Type R! I have driven a Honda accord type r and it was brilliant!
