Hi guys just going to quickly introduce myself, im dane im 19 from sheffield and just bought my first honda civic. Now dont get me wrong i wanted the type R but due to the high insurance and my age i had to settle for a red type sport. ep3. is this a decent choice or am i just trying to make do as i cant have a type r? my plans for this are to make it look like a type r and just wanted a project too really. i have just paid for this car and am waiting to pick it up from the garage in the next few days! thanks for any suggestions and hope to chat to you all on here! dane

yes i cant wait to pick it up, like i said im just waiting to pick it up from the garage as its in for service and mot. well before this i had a bmw318ci (on ebay if any1s interested lol) and decided a change was needed. what plans u got then rachy? my first plans are to make the exterior look like a type r, this includes changing all the badges adding a type r spoiler and some type r wheels, maybe even have to lower it a little to make it a replica? any advice any1?

The Sport is the EP2, the type R is the EP3, TBH I wouldn't bother making it a type r replica there isn't really much point.

All the type r (EP3) extras will fit on the Sport (EP2) but with regards to the seats, the airbag light will come on as there are no side airbags in the EP3 seats, so nowhere to connect the EP2 airbag connector.

Type R wheels will only fit the 2004> Sport as the previous years are only 4 stud

Type R spoilers i`m not sure about, i`ve heard stories of having to file down the EP3 spoiler to fit, but other people say no need :-

EP2 is a great wee car, I had one myself. If you need any more advice, feel free to ask.

Oh and welcome to HCF 8-|
