    Hate them, theyre all boxy and most that i see look like shit.


    If someone shows me an exceptionally clean EF(not rice) i MIGHT change my mind on them.

    Personally I don't like them either. I had a CRX for a while and I liked it while I had it.. but I just had to move forward a generation or two.. lol I feel the same way its something to do with the shape.. but if they are done right some of them can be super clean.

    I have loved my EF hatch for 20 years and counting and my CRX for 10 years and counting:

    Likes:

    Light
    My suspension makes it ride like a dream, corner and rotate like a demon
    Just so simple
    Easy to work on
    Body Style
    Pocket Rocket
    Headlights are brighter than my EG
    They make me smile everytime I enter my garage
    Keep these cars stupid simple and they'll run forever
    I owned my hatch before anyone ever thought about stealing them

    Dislikes:

    No cupholders - just one would have been nice
    Body parts and transmissions are becoming harder to find
    Kids still steal them
    Insurance is high

    Isn't that bottom pick one from All Version? If so it came out to our CRX meet and is just so freakin clean!
    if you can only race me in a straight line then whats the point ...91 SMF SCCA

    I see people out there spending money on the car to improve it … If you spend half that effort just working on your driving skills, making you and the car work together as a team, then you’ll go faster – period. To make the car go a second faster on the track takes a lot more energy and money than making yourself drive it one second faster.

    Just put a dc integra center console in, then you get an armrest and 2 cup holders. It fits really good

    Likes:
    1 Lightweight
    2 Easy to work on
    3 Can be made killer fast around corners. one of the only FF cars that can corner as well as say, a miata (when done correctly that is)
    4 Can be made killer fast in a straight line. Swap the stock motor out with a B, F, H, or K series and you have dramatic increase in acceleration. A beefed up all motor K series CRX can whoop some serious ass down the 1820. Or slap a turbo on a D series motor and it will walk right by much higher horsepower cars for dirt cheap.
    5 No nonsense design, look elsewhere for girly frills.
    6 Aerodynamics (CRX) very low drag coefficient (Cd 0.29) along with a drag area of less than six feet equates to better top end acceleration and gas mileage
    7 Gas mileage: I regularly get over 50mpg on trips, and over 40mpg in town with a cam'd D15b7 making more than double the stock horsepower for the car.
    8 large aftermarket support
    9 newer/better OEM parts interchangeable. How many people run DA hubs/trailing arms/brakes on their EFs? just about all of them. Want an S2000 gauge cluster? no prob. Hydro tranmission? there is a kit for it. AWD? do you want to run D (wagovan), B (early model CRV) or K (late model CRV) series motor? the list goes on.

    Dislikes
    1 most EF owners let the cars fall to shit
    2 Rust, mainly from owners who let their cars fall to shit
    3 wiring, mainly from the asshole owners who hack their shit up
    4 theives target them because they are stupid easy to break into and steal.





    Some of my favorite EFs.... the SSworks CRX, Jeremy Croiset's NASA Honda Challenge CRX, the Bergenholtz CRX, the Top Setup K20/K24 CRX, the Bisimoto NA D15 CRX, both of my current CRXs, and my brothers hatch.
