    Does anybody know much about the Euro R CL1 ? Does it cost more to insure as it's an import and are parts hard to come by for the same reasons

    I know its a great car it has the H22 engine and a gearbox which does not have the gearbox issue like seen on the ATRs CH1

    build quality is epic but you will need to get a proper alarm like Clifford and rust proofing.

    [quote data-cid='1940575' name='Sandy.' timestamp='1376844702' post='1940575']Car for sale: 2000 Accord Euro R CL1

    Mileage: 137067km around 85000 miles

    Condition: Good condition, more information detailed below

    Location: Cirencester

    Description: Link to build-up on here

    The time has come to put my Accord up for sale, pains me to do this (actually feel sick posting this) but a few things may be in the pipeline and I can’t afford to use it daily or have this sitting around.

    It was recently featured by Banzai magazine will include this issue with the sale.

    It is one of two Nighthawk Black CL1's in the UK.

    Very brief history of the car since being in the UK …

    It was imported originally by Livvy (EK9’s R’us)
    Julian from Rarerims then purchased it
    Then it came into my possession.

    It has not wanted for anything over the time I have had it. I have a lever arch folder that is full of receipts (add up to around 3.5k) and that does not even have the invoices for the clutch, flywheel and gearbox rebuild parts.

    Is due an oil and filter change, will be carried out in the next month or so.

    Three keys are included, along with two alarm fobs and the Honda Clio folder and manuals from when it was in Japan

    Julian got a cambelt change carried out with new auto tensioner and water pump when it was in his possession.

    The car was fully undersealed with 3M products by Endless Horizon not long after it came into my possession. The underside never saw a winter, before it had this carried out and was spotless underneath.

    It has had the 5th gear and synchro replaced, at that time an OEM clutch and XTD lightened flywheel was fitted along with Amsoil gearbox oil at the same time.

    The clutch master cylinder was found to be leaking not too long after that so it was replaced with a brand new OEM one from Hond-R.

    It has a Clifford Concept 650 alarm with proximity sensor fitted.

    Tax until: 31/05/2014

    MOT until: September 2014, due next month but will be done before its sold

    Bad bits Stone chips on the front bumper and some on the bonnet

    Was hit by a road gritter a year ago these stone chips were filled, flat sanded and polished so you can hardly see them

    Side skirt and rear lip have scuffs on them, they are close to the bottom of the car so not really noticeable have pictured this

    Speedo does not start at 0kmph doesn't make much of a difference

    Clutch release bearing is noisy at times, common thing on Accords and was not deemed to be an issue when the gearbox was rebuilt

    One of the wheels has some powdercoat flaking have pictured this

    Passenger seat fabric around the harness holes at the top un-attaches itself not a major issue though

    A few of price options for this...

    £8000 as it is but will not be including the Project Kics wheel nuts

    Not really after a P/X for anything as I have something in mind, unless you have a GE Honda Jazz :Wink:

    And I am not in a rush to sell, it gets put in the garage over the winter so won't be accepting silly offers for it!

    Sound good but personally red not my colour. It should be white or black but my personal view.
  15. Rhys Valued Contributor ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    Red does look nice but I do have a soft spot for a nice white car ;-)
  16. Rhys Valued Contributor ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    Insurance far too much on them just checked :-( I'll just have to keep searching for Type-R :Smile:

    if you tried with a japanese import insurance specialist provided you go in for a high excess you can get cheap insurance. lets face it a low excess on a jap import is worthless as they will write it off as you can't get body parts cheaply.
  18. Rhys Valued Contributor ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    I didn't know or think about that to be honest but the bids on the car went up higher than i wanted anyway and finished with the reserve not met so I think I'll stick to finding a decent ATR. Thanks for all the info on the CL1
