Just upgraded from 97 auto to 00 SH
model. Base model is nice, but SH is
a must for true performance. The SH
offers dramatically improved handling
and whips corners as fast as the
driver can handle. The car has ample
power, but anything could use more
power. Add some bolt ons for a few
more horses. Love the styling (the
headlights grow on you),
but interior is a bit bland, and
can be unconfortabe for a taller
person. Good gas mileage unless you
push into Vtec on every gear. Could
use a 6th gear for better hwy mileage.
I have some worry about my clutch
already making noise at 44k mi. But I
bought it at 40k, and I don't know how
it was treated.
Handling, stock radio pretty good,
good looking stock wheels, good looks,
smokes V6's regularly. Way underrated,
huge bang for the $, not many of them
Swap to performance tires, had to
upgrade stereo system, japanese front
lip and fog lights, will probably
upgrade intake and exhaust, maybe
suspension and wheels. Needs
telescoping steering wheel, wheel is
too far away fron the seat.
