I had an '87 Accord EX 2.0, '99 Civic 1.4 3 door hatch, '99 Prelude 2.2 VTI and '01 Accord 2.3 Type-V....
Out of all of them the best one was the Prelude, because it was Japanese built, and had a 200 bhp H22A8 motor that went like stink. I think the UK civic coupe's were Jap built too, which is far better than the US built line up (looks excluded)... have a look at the last Accord coupe and the Civic IMA, they are not the same as the Honda's built in Japan... that's my view.
It was also a shame that Honda stopped making the DOHC VTEC engines, and in lieu of that, the best alternative nowadays is probably something line an Insight.
Honda's 90's coupe's were brilliant cars, long lasting and reliable and looked good.
On balance, I prefer the UK Civic to the US one... but saying that a US civic coupe would be nice to see on UK roads... the Civic has got too sensible... hopefully the forthcoming Type-R will be good, but Honda = VTEC and high revs in my view, and that is a different animal.
