Hi guys wonder if you could help me out a little.
I got a Civic VTI 1.8 and am looking to get some bits (body kit, lights mainly and maybe some engine goodies :) ) imported.
What would be the US model type of this car?
Mine is a 2000 model just like this one but black

The only model in North America that would be its equivalent would be the Acura 1.6 EL. Which is only available in Canada, and I don't know of any companies in the U.S. that make kits for them either. Maybe some folks from Canada might be able to help you out...

Thanks for the info people...looks like this is going to be harder than I though :(
Found that CA Automotive site hc99si1, got some bits there I think I'll take a look at later.

Small world as they say :)
As the engine in my car is a B18C (similiar to the ITR I believe) would some parts from that fit straight on...in particular a air filter and a new header/manifold?
I think the changes to the integra engine where internal mods (cams and the like) but the external pattern where things fit should be the same...or am I way off track here?

actualy i believe with a little work you can get a full kit from a 4door civic to fit
i saw a guys el online a long time ago who trimmed a mugen front for a civic to fit the El

and if it's 1.8 dohc vtec there's a plethra of parts that will work on it, just need to know the engine code
