ek4 sir specs/vti differences

decided to start this thread due to arguments and misinformation i saw in another thread.im not researching any of this im doing from memory of owning many many hondas so ill try be accurate any mistakes point out and any more differences stick em up.

vti has chrome tint lights sir has bronze
vti has blue chassis plate on bulkhead sir doesnt
vti mph odometer sir kph
vti b16a2 sir b16a
vti has 2 sidelights on top sir has all 4,top and bottom
sir has the little clips on rear number plate recess
vti is 160hp sir is 170
ecu is different
both were available with those blade alloys
sir had climate control,dont think vti had it just normal air con?
sir had wind deflectors vti didnt
sir came with flare,vti didnt

all i can think of for now,add more if anyone wants.

Re: ek4 sir specs/vti differences

the center consoles are different, Sir has heater/ac dials that go vertically down, as ek9, and better dials (white) iirc, seats are blue patterns, vti red etc.

Re: ek4 sir specs/vti differences

A few SiR-II's came to my country buth as 96-98 and 99-00 models. they basically came loaded with everything: sunroof, ABS, airbags, auto climate control and a 170ps B16A4 engine.

Re: ek4 sir specs/vti differences

is'nt the boot lid different between sir's and vti's, the number plate recess is alot skinnier than in a vti because of the different size number plates??
