    Hello hondarians,
    Just wanna get some opinion from u guys about accord euro-r cl7....now im looking forward to own one preferably a recon model,but im not very sure about the maintenance cost and availability of the spareparts here in malaysia since the car is very rare.i have a few questions:
    1)does it share same engine parts with fd2r,since it also uses k20a?
    2)have you guys ever encounter any cl7 halfcut in klang valley area?is it hard to get one?
    3)could u guys suggest any reputable workshop for it?bcoz now using EK used to send to 'under tree' workshop...hehe
    4)any known problem about the car.....
    hope opinions from u guys could help...cheers...:driver:

    As for engine, as long as stock and maintain intervally, shouldnot be any problems.

    As for bodyparts, u have to cry first..then may be u get small parts. No hcut available yet. Just pray a lot. But not to worry, s'pore a lot!!

    Service centre - any normal workshop can do. Don't too much believe on workshop reputation, especially in sunway areas.

    Thank for d info Aja...now as far as i see the problem is to get the bodyparts.for engine i wont worry much since honda is very reliable.nowadays also most of recon car dealer not interested to import the CL7 model that make it more difficult.they said theres no demand and something to do with honda malaysia policy,to avoid competition with malaysian accord something like that.but i believe theres fans and owners of CL7 model out there(ada ka?if so can be my future sifu la...hehe) :adore::adore:

    hcut should be coming very very soon,...
    aprox 2004, now 2009,... lai lai lai,...

    CL7, ada,... got many in malaysia already,...
    we know there's abt 5,... from havoc and zth and mttrader forum,...
    out there on the road,... maybe 100-200,... the R and also the 2.0E and the 2.4 CL9,...

    helmi, no need look for future sifu,...
    bulet's original CL1 is more rare than the CL7
    u can buy orange/apple for sifu aja / sifu bulet / etc.

    anyway, the policy of honda malaysia,...
    nowadays not applicable liao,... it was in the early year 2000s that the policy and AP law was in-force, thus, recond hondas (those celebrate 5th birthday) at that time,... u pay a high premium compared to buying an evo/scooby/garisan langit,... etc,...

    thatz why the EK9, EK4, CF4, CL1,... and such,... byk kurang in malaysia.

    as aja said,... negara singa banyak!

    so far i have only come across used CL7R twice... the first one a 2006 model that was on sale in 2007 for 206k complete with some mugen parts and then another one last year in MT... a 04 model asking for 16xk while unreg CL7s were selling for 15xk...

    DMG told me once that they can order the car for you... put some deposit and then they'll search the car for you.

    the one in NAZA... which one... in TTDI with mugen exhaust or in PJ. in PJ it's an 06 model explaining the high price... well in fact the high price is not really explicable in the first place

    the k20A engine is practically (almost) identical to the dc5's / ep3's ........ shares alot of common parts , and inter-swappable.

    just worry more on the parts like the funny pins / links, especially in the undercarriage , lower arms, mounts, etc , which are not common with other Honda models.

    nope,...
    thread starter asking abt CL7R,... only one spec,...

    tim,... euro-r only got two types in the world,... one is the CL1 and the other is CL7,...
    in europe got ATR, using same h22a as the CL1, but due to emmision constraints,... lesser output a bit.

    abe bulet,... CL7E, EL, CL9 variants,... got,... but all embassy cars, etc,...
    sell me ur CL1R cheap cheap lar,... u buy CL9 lahhh,... the 2.4 can stroke to 3.4,... makan all the other Rrrrrrr,...

    bro, is there any problem with car frm DMG?so far they offer the cheapest but it seems they finished their stocks already. The one in Naza i saw twice, once in TTDI another time in PJ, both also 2005 car black colour offer at RM180+k, discount only minimal amount. so far seem like CL7 is the optimum car for me as i travel a lot and it's 4 door.

    bros, what is the power (hp) for CL9?? i got malaysia fren driving one in singapore. but somehow dunno the engine is high power one or same with local honda accord 2.4 which is 170/180hp..
