I’ve had 3 EP3’s the last was a 2005 & was supercharged. The FN2 in comparison Honda went for cabin comforts & a less Raw car to draw in a wider crowd . It payed off in terms of sales , but sadly the purists didn’t take long to see that the money spent went in all the wrong places biggest gaff ( no independent rear suspension ) the K20 is identical with revised timing so around the same performance as the EP3 but with the extra weight. Saying that the EP3 was tail happy so your wife will almost certainly feel safer in the FN2
As mentioned the rear calipers suffer badly , give them a good clean up on a sunny Sunday & itl Be spot on .
