Looks well.
I drove a 2L vtec Type R the weekend, (DC5 teggie) and I got a bit of a fright when it hit vtec, maybe its cause it was manual it took off or the fact it had 6 gears, but I wasnt expecting it. Seems to be the same bhp as the Euro R, you'd get a great kick out of that. Wouldnt be any comparision to the Z though I'd imagine!!
PS - Still much prefer the FTO for looks and in general and basic mi-vec ability in case slating starts by the way!!

That does look very tasty indeed - Very good performance and handling for a 4 door saloon.

I think I'll nip down and take it for a spin, I've seen a few in the flesh and they are tasty and with a nice recaro interior to boot, at least I won't mind driving the family car if we're going anywhere!!

So.... anyone want an Opel Astra??? :lol:

I'm thinking what you need is a nice discreet Lexus.. ;-)

Seriously - those Euro R Hondas as lovely.. a couple of them new and old knocking about Blanch, Drogheda and Ashbourne.. I'm forever doing double takes when I spot one cause the differences are quite subtle.. I like it..alot.

Dave, it's currently top of my list to get now that I am in the market for a new saloon. Well, the EVO8 is but a bit too steepto buy and run. Love these Euro R's

Another one that's nice!!

I had thought about an evo or even a scooby but in saying that they will be expensive to run and I want something reliable, which honda's usually are!!

Nice but wrong colour and wrong wheels for that colour, I'd stick with blue, black or maybe red if were buying a Euro R
