They generally state if they are vtec or not in the name, unless its a type r (usually) so i'd take a wild stab as saying it's a none vtec version. it's normally the vti or vtec's that I see around.

I'd guess the interior is horrid in them, most early/mid 90's honda's are nasty. im not a fan. if you buy one just have a good look around the shell for rust and as long as the engine and box are fine, you should have a fairly cheap motoring experience.

My mate had a R5T and it was seriously quick, as for the honda they are reliable as long as they are looked after.

Ahh bless, Sunny GTi. I was thinking of getting one as my runabout :lol: Surprisingly nice to drive, softer than the R, and not that many about. Although, without the R kit, Sunny's look amazingly dull! Luckily for me though I've got spare skirts and other bits and bobs to jazz it up a bit if I ever did get one.

The problem with Civic's is that the only ones I ever see are driven by, a certain group of people, who have quite literally ruined the car for me. The older ones that is.

I hate the older civics, they look crap.. despite the figures the decent engine can get, they just look utter crap :rolleyes:
