    i have always wondered this too after looking at the VIN plates and doing sum research into what country each colour VIN plate came from.


    seen here.

    it says on the bulk head either on or near the VIN plate, mine being an em1 says honda motor company america or usa forget which it says but its american either way , others I've seen have said honda motor company japan so im guessing it will say uk or maybe europe if its built here

    JHM on chassis place is built in japan and something to do with plant name/location.


    All eu Civic hatches/saloons are made in japan(apart from some US models), coupes in the US and 5 door hatchbacks in the UK(eu 5drs, asian market 5 door hatch- domani are jap)


    so your car is JDMy0 as in japanese built/an official eu import. but its not a japanese domestic market model.
