Hi all, lookin to a civic VTI or VTI-S and wanted to know the differences between them? They are both 1.8 and think the engine power is the same, and have been told that the difference is the VTI-S has an LSD, shorter gear ratios, front splitter and only comes in Pirate Black. Is this correct and if not exactly right can anyone let me know the real differences in them?

Differences are.....civic VTi-S (MB6) has over standard VTI
Full lip and sideskirts kit, with deeper front spoiler.
ltd edition vtis alloy gearknob
ltd edition vtis mats
Different alloys to standard vti ones (2 style offered by honda, only available on vtis)
Only ever available in Pirates Black Metallic, although there are loads of red, blue, silver, green MB6's advertised for sale in autotrader etc as "ltd edition vti-s" these are not vti-s.
I was under the impression too that the standard vti didnt have the lsd, only the vti-s, but later found out that lsd wasnt just found in the vtis but all mb6's.

Oh, and I found the site lmao Its http://[email protected] Theres a cracking vti-s for sale on there right this very minute mate! :cool:

Yeah all the above info is correct there are a couple of silver VTI's knocking about with the VTI-S lip kit. Doesnt make them the genuine article! As with any honda, aslong as you regularly change gearbox oil, the diff is good! The VTI can torque steer if ya burn off in 1st then chuck it to second but the diff will prevent you from going in the ditch and its brilliant for pulling ya round bends! Oh and if you find your left wheel stuck in the shit at the side of the road the diff will pull ya right out! haha

i have a vtis and its the proper one. main problem i find is that the back end tends to go very sudenly. it has loads of grip and then jus lets go! this is very annouying as i jus upgraded from a peugeot 106 :rolleyes:
but back to subject jus look around for a bit and take your time and you will not need to find the car, the car will find u!!

i used T1r's and thought they were pretty good (on my old EJ9) then changed the Goodyear Eagle F1 GDS3's and the difference was stunning
