    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?

    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.

    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.

    is it a car that came from japan?if its not a jdm car it isnt an sir. if it has a dohc vtec 1.6 engine the engine number should begin b16a.it has to rhd etc etc. just post pics of your car and we will tell you what it is.

    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??

    no the lid is the same on each hatchback, us/eu/jdm, there are differences on the sedan civics.

    It isn't SIR

    sometimes it seems as if you guys get so caught up with the JDM thing. the EK SiRs that came here between 96-00 were almost identical to the Japanese Domestic ones minus maybe the Japanese labelling. They were in fact referred to as SiR-II's. The B16A4 engine output the same bhp as the B16A.

    vti b16a used a b16a1 pistons as well, hence the compression and hp different between the vti b16a and the jdm sir b16a.
