There was hardly any ep3 being sold back than, hence why they are almost pretty rare to be spotted on the street

Did she master that funny looking stick?

Anyways, OP should've posted this in the Honda/Acura Tech section. Or for that matter, look at the pictures posted in that section.

I was soo close to buying one but I couldn't stand the location of the shifter, and the fact that theres no arm rest, thats something I can't live with.

I have one. It's ok as a DD but definitely needs more power. The shifter is the coolest part! that and the hidden extra storage under the cup holders haha.

A friend of a friend had an ep3 and did a corner by burne road and flipped! I dunno if he was a shitty driver or not but I heard it was pretty bad...plus I remember reading that the cars handling sucks ass. That's why I bougHt an RSX

Drove one before, they're pretty fun and the position of the shifter wasnt that bad. Yes, its awkward looking, but quite nice when you're constantly shifting. As for the arm rest, i'm disliking my current civic because of it! Inconvenient sometimes when shifting.

I have one..
i have an 02 EP3 and 02 P11.. the EP3 drives so much better compared to the 4 banger infiniti. it is a light and day difference (k20 vs SR20) and the shifter is nice and crisp compared to the G20. The only department where the Infiniti wins is the 4 doors , BOSE audio, and armrest. the wife likes driving the ep3 more than the infiniti as well.. and she claimed it as her car
.

Not likely. I live in Victoria. The EP3 has around 40k mileage. both the P11 and EP3 are bone stock.

I've been driving an '04 around for the last 3 years, loving it so far.
Too bad I need to upgrade to a four door sedan. Anyone want to buy mine?
