DSR's CR-X VTEC
Weekend Toy Owned by DSR

  • I always loved this model, and when I started my search, I was aiming for an ED9, but my real dream was to get an EE8. It wasn't easy to find a CR-X VTEC in good condition, specially where I live. I've been looking for a while for one and when I finally found it, I went for a test drive. When I drove it for the first time, I loved it so much I couldn't describe the feeling.

    I looked like an overly excited kid getting a new toy for Christmas, I just couldn't stop thinking about it, for days all I could think about was this car. I went ahead, made a financial effort, bought the car and made my dream come true. I've owned it for a year and a half now.

    The car isn't perfect, it's far from that, but I'm currently working on getting the way I want it to look.

    Modifications & Optional Extras

    The previous owner made a lot of modifications, a few I've changed, and a few I've kept. It's got a conic filter, it's lowered with coilovers, AZEV Type A 15" wheels, a decat and a LASER muffler. It also has the "DOHC VTEC Programmed Fuel Injection" stickers that came with the CR-X EF8, the JDM version that I bought and installed. I got some rain deflectors as well, very handy in rainy conditions.
