gtdreams hey everyone, I'm a newb!
Well,i like it except for the hood.I dont know too much about these cars but i am guessing there will be a better fuel economy even with the turbo.Would be easier to fit into smaller parking spots.Plus the paint color is awesome,at least i think so.I say if youre bored with the GA,and you like this car ,do it.Its fockin nice...

The hood looks like it's taken a couple of 30mm hits from a Warhog....

The car looks pretty cool overall though.

I have to ask...Why is the guy wanting to getting rid of it already ?

The thing just got plated in Ontario.
(That is like a recent/new licence plate !)

it is a clean civic with a stick. but the GA would be more unique and youd probably be more proud of it since you built it yourself.

Those are impressive times, but a b16 will never be a k20.

I dont like it. Maybe im just lazy but i like things like automatic window switches. Are the door locks manual too. But if you just want something to run at the track a little faster than go for it but if not I would reconsider

It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile- winning is winning. Ask any racer out there...

First off, what is with all the F&F references by sik lately? Second NOOOO!!!!! Too bad the hood really didn't take a couple 30mm depleted uranium rounds. It may be fast but it is still a civic. Finish the GA please!

Why would he? On automatics a tack like that is stupid but it's a manual so he actually needs it on that car, and if you look at the stock gauge cluster it doesn't have a factory tack.

Don't do it unless you really just want a fast car.

It's a little **** for my tastes. I don't know a whole lot about Honda stuff. My neighbor has a 92 hatch with a B18c1 with a Jackson supercharger, coilovers and some 16" wheels and everything else is bone stock, and it's fast as ****. I drive it whenever he's out of town. There's tons of aftermarket support for civics which is a + (if I got that car I would have to tone it down a bit). Don't really know about the B16. Not a big Honda guy here.

he was going to meet me in NY, reason he is selling he's buying his cousins mustang. As of the civic, i dont understand how a civic runs 12s, with tvs in seats, etc. with subs. unless he guts it out b4 track time.
