Re: Is this the real JDM 7thgen??

Basically, take off our side door guards, swap it to RHD, and you got a JDM Civic Ferio... maybe a few interior changes as well, as i see an 04 that has exposed cup holders, and a different radio and an ash tray...maybe just the DX version though...

whenever I want to see REAL japanese cars, i go here:

here ya go Gearbox... REAL JDM used cars for sale!

http://www.tradecarview.com/used_car...=2000&jid=2006

or here...

I'LL TAKE TWO OF THESE AND DRIVE THEM IN THE MORNING!

Re: Is this the real JDM 7thgen??

Re: Is this the real JDM 7thgen??

hey gear check on ebay.co.uk they have cheap folding mirrors and most will ship to the states at low cost. Seems like its worth a try just make sure u get the right ones but im pretty sure i saw sets on there for less than 100 prolly not power folding but the price is right.

Re: Is this the real JDM 7thgen??

Last I checked japan did not have a 7th gen coupe or sedan at all.

So JDM on a 7thgen is B.S.

The thing is the 7thgen civic was made at the Dayton, Ohio Plant in the U.S. all the ones in England were shipped over to England from the U.S. plant from what I gather there are some that were shipped over to the Philippines. Now Honda Imported the 01-02's and possibly the 03's over but not the 04-05's.

The UKDM versions have heated leather seats, power folding mirrors (required by the UK), different tail lights, a rear fog in the bumper (also required by UK), I believe that they also don't have the amber pieces in the headlights but I can't remember its been awhile since I have been back over to the UK. Oh and it is tagged over there as the honda civic coupe v-tec(it just has v-tec on the back bumper) not as a DX,LX,EX,or Si.

I don't think they imported the sedan to England but I think they did to the Philippines.

Also the older civic's it was easy to convert to RHD cause the Firewall is flat but it isn't flat in the 7thgen and alot of cutting and reshaping is required to convert and no one has done it yet.

and the EUDM/EDM would be LHD cause they drive on the same side of the road as we do in Europe except in England and Ireland

well, i know it's hard to find a pic of a 7thgen civic ferio in japan, seeing how they have a hell of a lot more models to choose from...but as for your comment about the 04-05...you may want to check the following link

http://www.honda.co.jp/auto-lineup/2005/civic-ferio/

notice/\ 'co.jp'

(and it's got the clear corners for you too gearbox! no amber on the front of this JDM Civic! )

but as for the 01-03s...i'm looking around, so i will update.

http://www008.upp.so-net.ne.jp/rssync/sound-on.html
each kanji link goes to a pic.... (coupe RC car on here as well :P)
