Question Ek9?

I saw this car claiming to be an EK9 while browsing around a forum & thought I'd show it here. Wondering if this is a true EK9 or not. I think not personally.

Oh & they said the chassis number was "EK9B16B"

Here are some pics:

I say not an EK9. EK9 are like the 99-00 models. Looks like an EK4 to me, if anything.

EK4s are SiRs, EK9s were 97-00 so it is possible to have the 96-98 look.

THE SIMPLE TRUTH.

WHEELS

FAKE: Why? Cause the center caps are not red with white "H" logo. They are completely white with white center caps and red "H" logo. Also: the spokes are 5 spoke and not the genuine 7 spoke seen below... Calipers are also red: FAKE!!!


REAL: These are the real-deal EK9s wheels with original center caps.

FRONT BUMPER

FAKE: Why? The front bumper does not have side-indents on the side bumper. Also, the front grille has been sprayed flat white. The JDM front grill is clean and the wire (barely visible) is just stock.


REAL: The real Type R front bumper is clean and unmolested.

SIDES

FAKE: Why? Probably genuine Civic Type R decals but wrong car to wear them. The sidemarkers are probably "real". (not sure how you want to define that) The Civic Type R decals are also placed half-way and the real ones are placed higher. Also, its tinted up like a limo and maybe someone should tell the owner it ain't a VIP car...


REAL: Here you can see the stock lines and it wears the Civic Type R decals nicely.

THE ENGINE

FAKE: Why? First off, where is the EK9 chassis code badge when you open the hood? I DON'T SEE ONE! Give ya $20 if you can spot one! (doubt it) I say that was a swap all the way... The Type R strut tower bar and engine are real!


REAL: Cause you obviously tell there is the red strut tower bar, valve cover, EK9 chassis code tag, JDM Fusr Box Cover decal. (in medium green)

REAR END

FAKE: Why? Lets begin with the seemingly obvious midwing. Fascinating how I have ever EVER seen one with a midwing and probably won't see one with one... AGAIN! And! The stock rear lights are not JDM. The JDM pieces have a longer reverse white light piece. These lights are OEM stock with the orange and white.


Here is a SoCal native with the genuine real-deal EK9 and the marvelous rear end: ALL STOCK.


FAKE: Why? We have A LOT going wrong here...
1) A CTR gauge cluster was obviously swapped in!
2) Stock shift knob (not Type R 5spd. silver 'knob)
3) Stock shift boot (not Type R red stitch)
4) Stock steering wheel (not Type R)
5) Stock carpet/floormats (not Type R red)
6) Stock dash it looks like, but NO Type R emblem in the console either.
7) Stock door panels (no Type R red)
8) A CTR coin pocket was put in on the far right! (replacing the dimmer switch probably)
9) Stock pedals (not Type Rs)
10) Probably more missing, but thats the just of it...



FAKE: Why? Cause I see NO red!!! (compare it to the one below and you'll know)


REAL: Cause everything is real-deal EK9 parts!!! (another photo below for interior)


Yup, so that sums up my thoughts on this...
Thanks for reading!
