    just wondering if these swaps (b16a) are out of 91's and 92's how can these internet spots say the engines only have 50,000 max miles on them?

    the only way you know for sure is to get a frt clip with the odometer in it. Alot of older civic's and crxs will have 80-120 km or 60-70miles on them when shipped over. How do they even know for sure?

    Japan has some funny tax laws as I understand.
    A new car carries very little taxation and the taxes
    on that car increase as time passes, making it
    cheaper to trade the car in at about 5 years.
    They lose 40% of their value after 1 year.
    This coupled with the fact that it is expensive to
    drive in Japan (toll roads everywhere) tends to keep
    the milage down on vehicles.
    This is how it was explained to me by the Japanese
    guy at Pacific Motors.
    This is just good for general info because it all comes
    down to trusting the people you deal with, and the only
    way to really know the mileage is to get the clip.
