    My dad has a Accord 2.0 vtec, not quite like the Type R but it is a brilliant car tbh. Quite tight in the cabin, but has a nice bit of power behind it. In fact I was driving behind a Type R this morning and couldn't stop staring at it, lol.

    Very nice cars indeed!

    really nice cars, most powerfull of all type r's at the time with the 2.2 engine. more powerful that ek9 type r,dc2 type r and ep3 civic type r.

    my mate had one and the seats where really good.

    he also replaced the twin rusty exhaust for 5zigen exhaust and it sounded really good

    as far as i remember he had no problems with it at all

    My mate has 1 of these.

    The noise when you get in to the vtec is something else. Good solid cars and will go forever if looked after.
