Hey guys, here is my newly aquired toy. Just a quick couple of pics, sorry the car was quite dirty at the time.
Pretty clean example, so far standard bar the Mugen MR5's and the 2 1/4" exhaust. This is the second siR iv owned, just a little different to regular civic or integra, great fun to drive to!
Will keep you updated with new mods etc..

new look now!
managed to swap the mr5's for some RC Starks, didnt like the look then much, so my final acquisition is a set of BuddyClub's SF's. i think i'll keep these for a while.


With the RC Starks. Just didnt look right

Sits low now! just springs for the time being. Coilovers will be one of the last things to compliment the suspension, and until i can get the most of out the car without them.

I like it! About 15yrs ago when I was doing a lot of supersprints, a friend of mine built an SiR out of an ADM CRX. Bloody hell that was fast. Your car has a lot of potential :D

i like the look of the crx's... gimic your is looking great for its age...

there seems to be a shortage of good crx's around as most of them were molested in the 90's... and never recovered...

but they were and still are a very excellent handling car... plus the light wieght, the shape... the engine options... the list goes on...
