    Finally got it! Wanted one for years. After being let down with a green EG6 complete impulse buy on Honda Parts For Sale on FB I was properly on the hunt for one. Decided it had to be a genuine EG6 as I can't insure an engine swap and they have the best spec - rear discs, fold flat interior etc. 

    B16-z told me he had a UK EG6 VTi for sale soon - viewed and put a deposit on this in November and picked it up on Saturday. We had an absolute mission on Saturday as my mate had bought a DC2 which was in Somerset and was due to be picked up Saturday afternoon.

    Got some plates made and drove it home:

    4F665118-9AD7-4E9A-824E-17849DDA0703_zpsvpexwchc.

    Got us 180 miles to Somerset to get the Integra

    Hit a rabbit on Saturday night which made a bit of a mess:

    FA6F52AF-1252-4D57-A44C-B0ED88A103C5_zpszbpx1kde.

    Pretty pissed off but what can you do?

    362D03C1-AB12-44DC-8768-F6F02C9AB1FC_zpsd5qs37on.

    Fleet is back up to 3!

    Really happy with it, needs a few little bits doing but they'll get done soon. Engine seems really healthy, no smoke and it's pretty quick! My Accord Type-R is a bit quicker but there's not that much in it. Think the clutch has started slipping slightly :Frown: Surprised at how smooth the B16 feels around town, feels really smooth and refined compared to the D14.

    Plans:

    Spoon N1

    Manifold

    Denji headlights

    Fit my coilovers

    White Slips or bronze TE37s

    And a few other little bits.

    I'm absolutely knackered now so I'm off to bed, sorry for the lack of detailed post! Thanks Zed, Ishy etc  :Smile:

    Was loving this on Sunday night, was surprised at how rapid it is.


    Backbox is fucking hilarious. Doesn't sound as bad as it looks though.


    Was a proper squeeze in the back doe.

    It was an awesome day yeah! About 500 miles, 425 of those were in the EG6 :Smile: Don't worry, exhaust will be one of the first things I change...

    As soon as I decided I was after an EG I decided I wanted a VTi as I can't insure engine swaps. Plus they're that much rarer and more special!

    Sounds OEM from inside tbh, dunno what it was like from outside?

    I was originally gonna buy a Tahitian Green one but got messed about, I put the deposit on this one in November I think! 

    DC2 next I think :Wink:

    And yeah there's quite a bit of room at my parents house, part of the reason I don't wanna move out :Tongue: although they're kicking off about filling the place with cars...

    Well worth the wait mate! The engine seems sweet as a nut, hardly uses any oil, can't see any smoke and it pulls hard. Yeah I saw the car under the skin which was nice as I knew exactly what I was getting! 

    Got a few little bits to do but she's gonna be sweet! I've just dropped you a text actually.

    Honestly mate I'm well happy with it :Smile: Impressed that it got us to the DC2 with no issues after such a long time parked up too!

    It does have a sunroof yeah, colour coded so may be difficult to see.

    Did the EVO Triangle with Loplop and Antisanta a couple of days after getting my ATR, will definitely be heading back up there this year! 

    Absolutely love it man! You should get an EG9 :Wink:

    Yeah we missed all the NSX guys unfortunately :Frown: Was a good day regardless doe!


    Haha, I'd have to have four doors if I was gonna get one Jakk, the rear seats are just too sexy :Wink:
