    3-stage VTEC D15B is a great engine.

    I've been tempted on a few occasions to buy one in a hatch with the CVT transmission.

    They'll sit at redline and accelerate all day.

    Pretty nice ride! Are those rims factory? I don't recognize them as original Civic rims...?

    Those rims are some Aftermarket ones, but they look ok.. give it a bit better then stock look IMO.

    That thing is so awesome! I read up on those D15B motors, fascinating, they use the high lift Vtec at low rpm to entirely close one intake valve so it'll go into lean burn mode, then you get the full 130ps 7200 rpm VTEC at high.
    MAN I love this thing! value value value value and fun! #1!

    I like how all the cars come with those toll-booth things in them now and you get the cute Japanese girl talking to you when you fire it up. Anyone know what she says?

    This car didnt have one of those. Which i assume is why it has such low mileage the owner didnt even take it on the highway.

    She says "Insert Toll card please. " or something that basicly means that.

    Ahhh thats what it is! I had one on my old Celsior, oh I miss you Celsior, its just the Focus is better sadly, but doesn't make V8 noises like you did! and have leather and look so awesome, SIGH!
    What a waste of money to buy a car brand new and only drive it 30,000kms, that is some costly vehicle ownership!
