Civic VTi
hi guys.

i am new to the forum and looking to buy a 1997-1998 civic VTi so i can relive my old days and since i am abit old and my ear not work too good so the Vtec sound shouldnt be too loud lol..had most the civic since 1989 to 2000 and stop with the K engine start..had few imports too with wild setup and many euro hot hatch but they dont make the noise like the honda so i feel its time i pick one up and relive the sound.

what kind of money do i need in 2019 to get one?.

i would buy a yellow jordan but i had many yellow colour car and dont fancy another one then the EK9 import is not doable with the insure cost so the UKDM civic VTi is my best one to get.

I see some for sale and price are going for some not so well look after is around £1500 also see one in the bay and its a VTi S for £5000.

when you say rare dose that means there is no many made or still on the road or its rare for the VTi?

will try go check some out and see whats out there and also any good rust proof place you guys can recommend near the northwest of England?.

Rare because they are old now, mostly broken for parts and scrapped because of rust. Rust is your biggest enemy. Best bet would be to find one that's had the arches/sill redone properly, rust cut out and new metal welded in (Pictures taken though each step of the work is always good). Or buy a freshly imported Japanese EK SiR.

I have look at few since I last post and I found one with 1 owner on S reg and 90k with some history but its asking for £2900.

when down and had a look and all the oil is dark which I think its been stood and not been use much also rust had set in the rear under floor and exhaust will need replacing..no rust on the arch and sils..paint is good but had a small repair and not so good finish on the work.

you guys think £2900 is ok for that or should I look again?.
