    It is the Civic EK as they call it.

    Yung 1998-2000 yung SiR body, basically a facelifted version with larger, sharper-curved front headlamps and tail lights.

    Not all have VTEC sa stock engine:
    1.6 VTEC = VTi and SiR
    1.5 non-VTEC = LXi

    The pre-facelift versions (1996-1998) all came with black bumper and side strips as well - that's one big giveaway.

    Hello Pre,

    The 96 and 2000 vt1 actually have the same body platform. The difference is that the bumper front and back are bigger, rounder, and without the bumper protector. It has bigger lights too.

    The engine of the VTi is actually the same.
    except ofcourse the SIR which use a DOHC Vtec, compared to the SOHC of the VTi. The LXi on the other hand has the same engine block, and is a non-vtec engine.

    the variance: EF body - Is the box type civic
    EG body - is the ESI body with no grill in front
    EK body - is the SIR body with variation
    ES body - is the body with a triangle light on the back VTEC3
    FD body - is the current civic model

    Im not sure, maybe im wrong.

    Just comment.

    My Habanero Red Civic's H logo looked like one because of the body color.
