Hi all, I'm a newbie and i need some advice from the more knowledgeable members:

I'm going to look at a 5 door VTI-S (MB6?)in the next few days. 2000 on a "V", 56K miles. No mods.

What should i be looking for?

B18C4 with about 160bhp?

Does this model have a red key?

Rust?

Service history?

Anything else i should check ?

Havent talked about price with the guy yet. What should i be looking to pay for this car if it is "fair" condition?

If any body can help me out, it would be much appreciated and you never know, i could be posting pictures of my first civic next week!

cheers,

pandhandj

hi guys, thanks for the tips.

i have been trying to read up and i reckon the service interval for the MB6 is 12.5K with the timing belt being replaced at 90k miles. Can anyone confirm this...not sure if the sites i was on are telling the truth.

Just goes to show that you can find the answers to any questions on the internet, some of them may even be correct!

cheers,
