Tomorrow I'm going to look at an EM1, it's done 200,000kms and needs the left hand side ball joint replaced and rego expiring in may. . The guy wants $5,500 and I'm keen but the high mileage worries me and also I don't know how expensive replacing the ball joint could be.
I would like some opinions, and also things to look out for would be great as I don't have much experience in civics.
Yeah, I got a good mechanic, I'd like an em1, but I won't go for it if I have to spend like 1k just to fix it, when rego is due in may. Guy won't budge, he's adamant that he wants $5.5k for it.
Theyre the second nicest looking civic imo. fd2r being first (Yes they are near impossible to get in Australia.). Just get a decent civic. daily it until your on ur fulls then go turbo. whole honda fan boi phase avoided

If you can't be the fastest.
Be the most entertaining.

Bought my old 97 prelude with 170,000km. Got an exedy heavy duty clutch straight away and did the timing belt at 200,000km. No major problems til 300,000km. It never missed a meat. Just look out for normal wear and tear items here and there.
Look after it.
I spotted a Civic EK D16 at Hannys. 186,000km. Needed a head gasket...oh well.
