If You Own A CRX

If you own a CRX, I strongly recommend you take a look at the CRX-UK forum.

Regardless of the age of CRX you own, the CRX-UK forum is extremely useful and almost every common technical problem relating to these cars has been covered. The majority of the user base is however the 1988/1991 Civic/CRX. From a simple lamp change to a turbo or engine conversion, someone over there has done it.

This forum requires you to register for full access to all sections as you will be limited browsing as a guest. Although registering is free, donations to the cost of running the site are accepted.

The MK2 CRX is by far the most common on the forum, although there are still many MK1 & MK3 (Del-Sol) owners. There are also a large number of JDM Import owners to answer all import queries. If you are a US/foreign CRX owner this is one of the best places to ask EDM and JDM questions, as they can be answered with direct knowledge of the vehicles concerned. Altogether an extremely useful resource with a unique atmosphere.

Highly recommended, however if you are new to the forum please use the search feature and spend a reasonable amount of time exploring the forum before posting, as the majority of common queries are covered.
