Here we have for sale my 2000 Honda Civic EK9 Type R RX, 147,000 mix of kilometres and miles, True miles are around 110,000. The car was imported from Japan in 2008 through Duncan Crawford a well renowned importer of ek9s. I have owned the car just shy of a decade, purchasing the car in 2012.In my ownership it has been looked after to a very high standard. It has always been on a strict diet of 99 ron v power never have I used normal fuel in this car. It has been serviced every 4000 miles using top quality oil and filters. I have never had a spirited drive in this car unless all fluids etc have been warm. In my ownership I have gave the car a fair few upgrades mainly augmenting to an already great seam welded chassis out the factory. Innovative 75a solid billet engine mounts. Meister R ZetaPro w custom spring rates. 12kg front / 10kg rear.
Tegiwa 3 point strut brace. Hardrace rear trailing arm bushes. Buddyclub roll centre ball joints.
Skunk 2 lower control arms. Strong flex yellow full polyurethane bushes. Custom alignment A line Dudley.M factory final drive 4.785. I have just freshly serviced the car with new oil and spark plugs, the alignment has also just been done. The car can go lower but Ive kept the ride height practical. The engine is your average b series thus does use a bit of oil but nothing major and as long as you service it as recommended its completely fine, vtec comes in at 6,100 rpm it's very aggressive. Cambelt and water pump was done by HONDA hq Cannock before Nurburgring 6000 miles ago. Gearbox has been built to a very high standard the layshaft and mainshaft bearings have been changed, I also fitted a new oem lsd with fresh bearings. The forged mfactory 4.785 final drive gives 12% more virtual whp than stock, its semi helical so does make a nice whine through the gears. The bodywork has a few age related marks due to being 21 years old, there is the odd dent and mark to be expected, dont expect a showroom example, under the bonnet has some surface rust which could do with some tlc. I have had one of the arches professionally done along with the front bumper freshly painted, the passenger arch is showing signs of rust and in my opinion could do with being done soon. Whether its just a refresh or a new arch its up to the new owner it doesnt seem too bad.
This is a reluctant sale due to me no longer having access to a garage, in my opinion its unfair for this car to be outside. The market is on the up right now, the word is when these cars are 25 years old they are going to shoot up in value again due to being eligible for USA import.
