    Hi and welcome to Civic5 Anna, our Trader 1000rpm should have the ABS box of tricks you need.....dmrichards scrapped an aerodeck recently so he may have what you require. @1000rpm @dmrichards Good luck with the repair.

    ES could also mean "Evo Slayer" That's an impressive spec. list from 20 years ago....cruise control would have been the icing on the cake.

    The story of my MA8!

    I quite like the silver wheels . You'll be needing good brakes once you drop the 1.8 lump into your car.

    It's the hours of stitching that was putting me off but once I have the steering wheel cover....I'll just get stuck in whilst listening to music.

    That's the style......you've now got a solid car that should be good for the foreseeable......isn't it a great feeling when your car passes muster Ricky Rust has been ousted.....your anti roll bushes and drop links have been renewed......tis time to enjoy your new improved car.

    Driving in heavy traffic can be tiresome.....the upside is.......others will not be able to master your car without practise.

    Competition clutches tend to be snatchy by nature so you'll have to get the hang of it as the disc beds in. Snagging is to be expected so good luck with the minor oil leak.

    Wow ! that's a finish you can be proud of......your car looks brand spanking new. Was it a competition clutch you used ? seeing as it's so snatchy. Is it an oil leak you speak of ?

    X Reg MB2 1.4S auto

    I thought my old shocks were adequate but there's a marked difference....so much so....I thought I was in a different car. The new rear caliper means I'll be using less fuel and not wearing out the the new disc and pad . To treat me and the car....I fitted new black mats with red piping.......he he .... I have a thing about red and black combined.......I'm tempted to get a proper black leather steering wheel cover with red stitching.....that's the height of my mods

    The 90 bhp 1.4 models are acceptable power wise but try and avoid the lesser powered version....you'd get bored on the way to 60 mph. Hope the car you're interested in turns out to be a goodun

    It isn't bad enough for "Car SOS" but you'll find it needs a fair bit of work once ground back.....looks like you caught it just in time. https://alvadi.ee/en/carparts/honda/civic-lb-5-d-eu-mb-mc2-1997/sill-repair-part/
