Does anyone know how much the optional extra honda access suspension cost when new and how much their worth now? Been trying to find more info on them and not having much luck, apparently their made by showa and are the same as the mugen gold but without the height adjustment

Their red and yellow and ive only found a couple crappy pictures so far and the only info ive come across is from here

I have a set for a integra dc2 / civic SiR and want to know how much their worth, also want to find the integra or civic access options manual as it must be out there somewhere!

:nice:

It's gonna be very subjective if you don't know how many miles are on them IMO

agreed miles make a difference but its not something i usually see when selling suspension, take meisters for example, the Zeta S and R range change hands for 300+ if their in good condition

Going by the price of standard dc2 suspension which seems to be £100 - 150, these must be worth 200? 300? they seem to be so rare i cant even find another set to price them

As mentioned price is subjective on how much someone is willing to pay, most people would rather go aftermarket.
You can always put them on ebay bidding and let it go to the highest bidder?
Whats your reason for sale, why dont you just use them?

yeah true, but there must be a average price they go for and i would like to find out what that is. Not a fan of auctioning things on ebay, a lot of things dont reach the price their worth so definitly a buyers market IMO

Im currently using them and the 5 way damping is great, im just toying with the idea of selling to get a more track focused setup

Found the Civic EK Access page and they are listed at 148,000 Yen for the Type R which works out at £1001.58 in todays money, bear in mind this was 20 years ago, thats some expensive suspension! Can anyone work out what else it says?
