Honda Civic Type-R EP3

customer feedback

2004 Nissan Skyline 350GT coupe

The condition is amazing considering it's a 5 year old car. The previous owner really looked after it.

The guys inspecting the car at the licencing centre initially thought it was a brand new car and could not believe the features it had for the price.

I'm really impressed with it. I hadn't driven one before mine. I was just going by reviews. Although I did drive a couple of 350Zs which is close enough. It's a big step up from my old R33. Handles brilliantly and I don't miss the lag!

Thanks once again

Honda Civic Type-R (EP3)

The EP3 chassis Honda Civic Type R began production in 2001 and even Japanese sold models were manufactured in the United Kingdom.

Japanese specification Civic Type R's are the highest spec of those sold, featuring Recaro seats and helical LSD as standard, and a higher output 158kW (212hp) engine with different camshafts, intake manifold, exhaust and engine management programming. Weighing around 1,200kg handling is excellent and they are a blast to drive... able to change direction in the blink of an eye and the roar of the VTEC engine at high rpm is what motoring dreams are made of.

Like previous versions the Type R received additional seam welding of the chassis for a more rigid frame, uprated brakes and a 6 speed manual transmission. The unique mounting point of the gear knob out of the dash is a memorable design feature of the Civic Type R and is perfectly located next to the steering wheel for quick access, with the throw is short and direct.

Other standard and optional features include dual airbags, ABS brakes (with electronic brake distribution), electric power steering with variable gear ratio, and a leather Momo airbag steering wheel.
