Here are a few photos of my ray of sunshine haha. It is pretty sweet living in Japan especially if you are really into Honda's.

Thanks guys!! I really love it even in yellow. My plans are pretty simple. A set of coilovers and a CTR front lip to begin. Let me know if anybody has a CTR lip that they are trying to sell. Here is the story of how I became a honda lover if anyone cares to read it.

I got to Japan about two years ago. I am in the military and was very excited to get this assignment. My wife drives a Subaru B4 and I was driving a beater when we first got here. I met a guy that worked in the office next to me(also Air Force) and he had mentioned he needed a ride to pick up his new car. When we pulled up all I saw was a white honda but oh was wrong. He had just bought a 98 spec Championship White ITR. We went for a drive and he was revving it to high hell. I actually had said not knowing a thing about hondas "I don't think you should rev the engine that high it might explode." What an idiot right? I started searching for a honda because I had heard the sweet sweet sound of Vtec crossover and I was hooked. I ended up purchasing a 1993 Integra SiR. The outside was beat to hell but the interior was sweet. I was happy for a while but then I saw an ad for a guy on base selling his ITR for cheap. I knew from the nature of my work that the guy was being kicked out of the military and had to sell it cheap. My friend and I eventually purchased it for $2000!! We completely disassembled the whole car and kept numerous parts. I currently have the b18c sitting in my garage. After the Type R I settled on the dream of an EK. I searched but could not find anything that wasn't beat to **** or $12,000. I went to another city about 45 minutes away and stumbled upon this bright yellow gem. I looked it over and it seemed perfect. I was reluctant because of the price and left unhappy and without an EK. About two months later I was driving down the street and there it was the same exact car in the city I lived in. I went and inspected the car and this time I knew I wanted it and I finally purchased my dream car.

Very nice car man!

Can I ask, what prices do EK4's, EK9's and ITR's sell for roughly over there? Are they still very high priced or are they down around the 3000-4000 mark?
