Honda Civic Type-R EP3

customer feedback

2 cars incl. 2000 Nissan Skyline GTR V-Spec

J-spec's understanding of customer expectations was excellent, this is specially evident in the fact that my budget was limited, yet i was after a limited edition 70th Anniversary coupe. After a few auctions later I found and imported a V35 coupe in 2008 and was very happy with it, all my shipping, customs and compliance was arranged by J-spec as well.

It is import to note that on both occasions in 2008 and 2010 and over 2 very different cars, J-Spec has imported exactly what i wanted and within agreed budget without me having to worry about anything. I would based on my personal experience alone highly recommend them.

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.
