UPDATE: This 2000 Honda Civic Si Has Only 5,600 Miles On It, Looks Factory Fresh

The Type R is what everyone wants, but the Si is the more affordable way of enjoying your Civic in the twisties as well as on the straights. And in retrospect, the Si badge is the older of the two because it goes as far back as 1984.

This fellow here is a sixth-gen Civic Si two-door coupe from 2000, the final model year of the breed and arguably the best-preserved example out there. Only 5,600 miles (9,012 kilometers) were put on the car in two decades or so.

Listed on at $27,250 and with four days of bidding left, the Electron Blue performance model doesn’t shy away from what it hides under the hood once you lay eyes on the VTEC side graphics. To the point, the front wheels are driven by the B16A2 inline-four engine and a five-speed manual tranny.

The 1.6-liter motor is factory-rated 160 horsepower (162 PS) at 8,000 rpm, and it’s a very different animal from the turbo engine in the outgoing Civic Si. Not only is this fellow here lighter, but you need to rev the heck out of it in order to hit peak torque. That, of course, is what makes N/A VTEC so much fun!

According to BaT, “the coolant and oil were changed most recently in 2017.” Long-life coolant doesn’t degrade in three years, but the engine oil loses its properties in this timeframe. As such, changing it with fresh 5W-30 should be the priority of whoever gets his hands on this time capsule of a fun little coupe.

Oh, and another thing. The May 印象彩票app下载 Carfax report shows that an open recall for the steering-wheel airbag was issued in January 印象彩票app下载 but the fix hasn’t been performed yet. Otherwise, the two-owner car has no accidents or damage reports to speak of.

In addition to the car, the selling vendor is much obliged to add the original window sticker that reads $17,985. In today’s money, that’s $26,780 adjusted for inflation whereas a 印象彩票app下载 model year Civic Si Coupe kicks off at $25,200.UPDATE
As fate would have it, someone paid $50,000 for the Civic Si.
