right i got a coupe dx i.5 lsi but im already getting bord !
i want to stay with honda so what next?
i like the civic aerodeck 1.8 and i need a bit more space anyway (2 step kids and 2 dogs) but if it comes to it i can run two cars
i like the 97-2000 shape hatch backs. i want as much standard power as possible. any views on jap imports?
got 2k max plus my car when its finished which i value it at 800 (to 1k on ebay) so a dealer wood say 400 max
in a couple of months im 25 and will have 5 years ncb so insurance wont be a problem for anything

any ideas for the next step?

Maybe a EK4 (VTi) 96-00 Hatchback? They have the B16 engines and are 160 bhp standard. They go pretty well!

How big are said step kids? Reckon you could get them in the back of a MK2 CRX :p?

the s&g motor company 1 £1800 near enough. silver r reg with the lip spoiler
the cheap green one at the top with 80 odd k on, it but its being tit (tow) bared. there only got for fcuking up tailgaters

if only seen one accord type R they do look good but i kept up with it up to a ton from a standing start (he might just be a sh!t driver) in my 1.5 lsi.
im not really bothered bout faster than that wot with it being a ban no questions. and i drive for a living going to do my hgv class1 soon
still going to look around for one its another for the shopping list

Do honda make rear wheel drive or four wheel dive cars ?
i no they make 4 wheel steer

s2000. but way out of your price range, and theres the NSX which u wont be able to afford
CRV is 4x4 but is a 4x4 and slow.

for 2k the fastest car your going to get is an eg vti or a buggered up ek vti or half a broken ek9. i'd probably go with a nice eg.

for more space the aerodeck will suit you. find a nice one

For your predicament, i;d say the aerodeck. i have the b18 hatch and its got plenty of space for my little one. Infact why dont y ou look at mb6's? The boot is huge, not quite the size of my old bora but big enough.

You are indeed wrong. The mb6 is the 1.8 VTi hatch same engine as the aerodeck but slightly better looking. Its the car i own.
