Having said that, most ppl think the EP3 handles better with the better rear suspension in it. But I'm sureyou need to push it to the limit for that to come out. Damn good engine. :)
yeah a good friend of mine has one and iv driven it a few times.... yes it is slightly quicker in a straight line, and will Handel better. but only if you are absolutely flogging the living shit out of it!. its my DD, and i can tell you that under normal driving conditions (even having quite a heavy right foot) that this is actually better from a rolling start and in the corners (albeit a bit stiff)= this is unless you are bouncing off the rev limiter.... which i *cough* barely ever do....

even my mate (i let him have a drive) was convinced that it was a faster car untill i told him otherwise.

they are also a fair bit nicer inside, but thats what you would expect from a newer car....

dont get me wrong i did come very close to getting a EP3, but im more than happy i didnt in the end

Styling wise I prefer the EP, but as you said, FN is the newer car and should be better as a DD.
If all else fails...drop that K in a 4g :D

Just got back from driving the ole' Clio RN 1.2 all summer...
God bless the French ::)

And I STILL have not bought a replacement for the hatch, but I have driven every thing from a Forester XT, a beautiful V70T5 5speed with way too many miles (208k) and too many problems, a V70 2.5T, an XC70, an Outback 3.0 H6, (all automatics :( ) and a Honda Fit...and I'm going to check out an Outback XT this weekend.
In all honesty, I would have bought the 2.5T if it was a manual (They are decently quick cars) but I have not been happy with anything.
I am having serious issues driving automatics, and I may end up buying a crappy run of the mill outback 2.5 just so I can have a manual transmition.

I HAVE BEEN RUINED BY THE B16 HATCH!! :angryfire:
And will an acura crx seat on the 90's era fit my 90 dx?

Aside from a Civic, I have a 2012 Chevrolet Colorado which I just recently modified. I bought a BAKFlip MX4 Hard Folding Truck Bed Tonneau Cover from 4wheelonline, and I can say that it was easy to install. You do need a second person to assist when putting the cover on.

Looks great and very sturdy. Appears to seal tightly against water. I have washed my truck after installing it and surprisingly there's no water in the truck bed.
