That's a hot hatch!!! Congrats, that is a proper civic, and one of the only Civics I would own. Too bad they don't offer it here. Enjoy

K20 = best 4 banger on the road. I'm not into the Honda scene (save the NSX) but that motor is really something else.

It is, and you very clearly have a Civic Type R, which is a great car that we here in the US are always deprived of.

Another example of Honda's poor decision making and why the Korean's may send Honda the way of Suzuki and Suburu.

As a former CRX Si owner, every CRZ I see makes me die a little inside. They could so easily stick a good motor in that thing and have a cool car, but some idiot at Honda refuses to have any fun.

All they need to do is put the K20 from the DC5/FD2 with 220bhp and they wont find a shortage of customers wanting it.

I owned a first generation CRX si for 13 years. Honda lost its way years ago and appears to be on a very steady decline - like Sony.
