Ive owned it around 6 months. I purchased the car off a friend of mine who had the car from new. it was his pride and joy but due to ill health I persuaded him to part with it. I always admired the car and I knew how rare they were getting especially in this condition. I love this car more than the wife. :clapping

Women don't often get as attached to cars as blokes.

That is what you meant, I'm sure :wink3

It's a lovely looking car. However, if you say "no negatives", it's not really feedback, is it? ( what you're really asking for is rear end kissing :). )

The Honda D16 engine is a lovely engine and generally is reliable, although you can kill any engine if you try hard enough. It has a few foibles, the ignition system for example.

The comparison is always made with the K-series, which is also a lovely engine provided it's well looked after, but expecting a 20-year old engine to have been looked after for all that time, by all previous owners is expecting a lot.

Both engines respond well to a little, or so sometimes a lot, of performance tuning.

In which case you don't need to say "no negatives wanted"

Graham, really enjoyed browsing those pics. The best examples are the unmolested ones like yours, simply stunning. The guy you bought it from definitely found the right owner to take it forward.
