I had one, but to be honest; I was not that impressed. It much prefer the B16/B18 engines as opposed to the 2.0 one. Yes it has more punch; but the VTEC rev range is so small on these engine; you really need to trash it to redline all the time in order to be quick.
The suspension/handling however is really great, much better then the later models with the cheaper suspension. I also liked the shifter and gearbox; very short and precise.
Main thing: the steering rack; find a plat piece of road; and let go of the steering wheel and give it a bit of throttle (slowly increasing); if it keeps pulling to the right the steering rack is fucked (worn rack sliders inside, they're plastic) these steering racks are expensive; over a 1000 Euro from Honda.
Things to look out for; rust besides the normal locations: underside of the bonnet in the edges, hinges, trunk under the carpet at the sides. Also; these engines and boxes should be dry completely. Honda engines are not supposed to sweat a single drop of oil; if the engine bay looks like an oil-rig: stay away. If the engine rocks a bit during on/off throtthle this indicates that the engine/gearbox mounts are on their way out. If the valves are noisy (rattle/tick) the clearances have to be adjusted; this should be done every 80.000 KM or so.
Other than that; more or less bullit-proof.
