1998 Toyota Chaser Tourer V

Hi Ben,

Picked up the car yesterday - LOVE IT! Still drives like new, love how the boost comes on so early for Chasers. Condition of the paint is very good, I initially thought it was flat white but realized it was actually pearl when I saw it in the sun after a good wash. Just need rims, factory lip and sports grille (all sitting in my garage) and it should be the perfect daily.

Once again thanks so much for all your efforts and help. The guys at Import Factory were great too. One day when I've got the money for it I'm going to look at importing a manual JZX100 so you should hear from me then haha.

Pics and info for:

Honda Civic Type-R (EP3)

The EP3 chassis Honda Civic Type R began production in 2001 and even Japanese sold models were manufactured in the United Kingdom.

Japanese specification Civic Type R's are the highest spec of those sold, featuring Recaro seats and helical LSD as standard, and a higher output 158kW (212hp) engine with different camshafts, intake manifold, exhaust and engine management programming. Weighing around 1,200kg handling is excellent and they are a blast to drive... able to change direction in the blink of an eye and the roar of the VTEC engine at high rpm is what motoring dreams are made of.

Like previous versions the Type R received additional seam welding of the chassis for a more rigid frame, uprated brakes and a 6 speed manual transmission. The unique mounting point of the gear knob out of the dash is a memorable design feature of the Civic Type R and is perfectly located next to the steering wheel for quick access, with the throw is short and direct.

Other standard and optional features include dual airbags, ABS brakes (with electronic brake distribution), electric power steering with variable gear ratio, and a leather Momo airbag steering wheel.
