    Hi everyone.


    I've currently got a cosmic grey EP3 modded but im thinking of selling up for either a Yellow JDM 98 Spec Integra Type-R or a CW one or i might keep the Civic.


    What would you do in my shoes?

    Spend some cash on the EP3. CW DC2's are boring and common, yellow one's have 'those' seats. Only DC2 I'd go for personally is a silver one...


    Yours can be made to handle, look and go awesomely if you spend money on it in the right places :Smile:

    Do's handle well at moment as got some coilovers's on it aswell as some good rubber. Was thinking of rear upper and lower and front upper strut brace with engine torque dampner next month if i keep it.

    Keep the Grey CTR, best colour IMO

    Just sold my DC2 because it felt mundane. Buy a B18'd EG

    had a DC2 sold it bought an EP3, after a month and a half I decided to buy a 98 spec, EP3's are rubbish compaired to the 98 spec JDM ITR, you will not be dissapointed.

    EP3 Pros over DC2,


    K20A2 (VTC,i-VTEC), Better MPG, Better ECU, Better gearbox, Its not 12 years old. Doesnt look like a rover 200


    DC2 Pro's over EP3


    Handles better, More fun to drive?, LSD, Not as common as EP3, Handbuilt (well hand ported) engine :Smile:


    I was actually going to spend

    Well definatly don't get an EP3 then!


    If i go for a drive for a good hour, i will see about 10 EP3's and 0 DC2's.


    I've driven 1 UKDM DC2 and it drove amazing, abosolutly loved it!


    Get a DC2 for about

    I've got the best of both worlds, I know the DC2 handle slightly better but in all fairness, they're not practical, I much prefer my EP3, though when the DC2 comes back out it'll be an absolute animal!

    how are they gash? Yeh they arent as pretty as JDM DC2's but they arent a bad car.
     
  17. a2k00 Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Its only my opinion bud, Lower power, Heavier, slower and uglier = gash IMO
     
  18. Lance Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    are you comparing a DC2 to a EP3? or a JDM DC2 to a UKDM DC2?

    I don't know about anyone else but i'd much rather a 98 spec engine thats machine ported than a 96 spec one that has been set about by some jap with a chisel and a case of the flu
