Hi people,

I'm Dan 44 years and Honda-fan for the past 25 years.

I've owned and driven many, but still most attracted to 88-2000 models.

I own a EK4 4dr for the last 7 years and a CRX VTEC for the last 1,5 year (my 7th CRX actually). And I recently sold a mint EG5 I owned for 9 year.

If there is interest to see the cars, I will post up some pictures of them.

Cheers!

Thanks Gents

Here is some on the EK4Dr:









On the Ring:



Very good factory blueprint, notice high and flat torque for stock B16A2




Some details to the car:

This is actually the first LHD EK4 in Europe, 95' pre-production model for certification only.....never ment to go from Honda to public, but I got my hands on it because the Honda dealer in Belgium, that was ment to keep and allowed to drive the car, went bankrupt and sold the car anyway. So I got my hands on it and imported the car to the netherlands.

Mods I did sofar:

EK9 suspension
DC2 subframe
DC2 front upper strutbar
DC2 front lower strutbar
MC2 front swaybar with MG ZS bushings
MG ZS quickratio steering rack L2L 2.69
MG ZS front lower arms & ball joints
MG ZS steering arms
SPC caster/camber upperarms with MG ZS alignment
MG ZS trailerarm bushings
ASR rear brace
EK9 rear swaybar
16" Enkei Ep3 Reps
15" Mini R81 Imola (because the weigh only 5.4kg's)
15" TD Pro Race 1.0
EK9 downpipe + midpipe
DC4 rear silencer
J's racing decat
K&N drop in filter
B&M FPR + Gauge
EK9 frontlip
EK9 frontbumper (had a EK9 grill too but sold it in favour for the large "H")
Coupe rear bumper
VTi-S 4dr rearlip
M3 E46 trunklip
4dr Window visors
EK9 cluster
Type R steering wheel (actually now ATR)
EK9 shiftboot
ATR shiftknob
DC2 quickshifter + linkage
EK9 cupholder

I was inspired to mod with several MG ZS parts after testdriving a few, they drove fantastic through the corners even without lsd, basically because the Honda suspension geometry was finetuned with more caster, so I wanted my ek4 to steer and handle like one. :)

Before the EK4 4dr I had a mint EK4 3dr.....sold it with only 24Tkm(!) on it (also because I wanted a 4dr...I have kids):

Thanks, I especially liked the color. :)
Sold it to a German boy who just had his license....I'm not sure what happened to it. It was 7 years ago, lost contact.....he told me he was going to baby it. I'm sure he had fun with it on the Autobahn, everything still being new it had great stability on topspeed.

Here are some more pictures:

I took the 16"s OEM Enkei of my limo and put them on my CRX:



The CRX might soon go to make way for something else, might be RWD.

Also purchased an EK3 Facelift for my Mom, the green one in front.

The EK4 Limo is now on winterwheels, the 15"s lightweight OEM Mini:



I like these wheels a lot, being lightweight, room for bigbrake upto 294mm, unique look and Honda Spec. :)

Ik ben zelf ook aan die mini wielen aan het denken geweest, maar zijn deze niet redelijk smal (een 5.5 ofzo).

Anyway, welcome to the site

Thanks!

@Goosse: Klopt zijn VTi EG6-spec, 5,5JJ. Ik heb er een hele goede wegligging mee, gebruik ze ook op de Ring zoals je kan zien. Heb nog een vrijwel nieuw wit setje over mocht je interesse hebben. ;-)

Thanks very much for the double Welcome haza! :p

@Laurenz: haha, I guess you are that JDM itr driving through my street? Acquainted with Elio?

Switched rims again on the CRX (sold the Enkei's), now I have both cars on the lightweight mini rims and saves about 15kg's compared to the Enkei's. :) :
