you know when the back of your ed/ef is a rolling auto shop
you know when your car has a craving for whatever lives in your pockets

when you can feed your woman and the beast for twenty bucks

You know you drive an ef when

- you keep matching parts from different honda models to yours, even new models (prelude brakes, da knuckles, dc consoles, ek seats, fit wheels, etc...that tsx steering wheel humm, it may fit! :) )
- ebay springs, coilovers, short shifters, boots, tie rods and other suspension parts, corner lenses, bumper lenses, hid kits, etc, after a while they are not so bad at all ;D .
- you like eg, ek, dc, dc5, s2k, 3g tl, 1g tsx and dream of having one but still wont get rid of your ef.
- your driver seat keeps ripping apart but still is very comfortable.
- on crowded streets you easily find a parking spot.
- one week after changing the oil its already black ???
- you can drive a shit load of miles/kms with the gauge on E
- replacing the alt for the first time can be a real pain in the ass if yu don't know the easiest way to remove it...
- you have seen the wagon attack 2 vid on you tube at least 10 times and say "I will have a shuttle sometime..."

- you feel represented in more than 80% of what has been posted in this thread.
real good one there

You know you drive an EF when...

-You look at power options as just another thing that can break.
-Your intermittent wipers won't work.
-You can feel the wind blowing against your car on the freeway
-People in front of you can't tell if you're taking a turn because your turn signals are on the corner lights.

Get out get 12mm out do nut up and continue driving.

Now this has to be a culture difference. All of my power equip that I've had(this ED4 and my old one) have worked, nothing has ever fallen off or broken down. I've also yet to see a non-VT with a sunroof. :D

it is since the USDM EFs are either DX's or SI's. it annoys me how much our cars are so watered down compared to the rest of the world.

You can have a half hour conversation about 4G civics with just about any random person that you bump into who also happens to drive one.
These conversations usually end with "If you ever want to sell it..."
And will an acura crx seat on the 90's era fit my 90 dx?
