The resale value of the CR-X's seems to be going down hill of late, a good siR will go for around USD $6,600 - $7,600 depending on condition and mods. Ones with a Mugen kit will fetch a bit more. I think the problem is the prices of Integra Type R's have come down so people tend to sway more towards them when it comes to the top end of the CRX price bucket.

What's the situation where you are?

Say for example the following car was a Si (USDM - LHD), with the same mods, what would it fetch….





The car is currently in Netherlands, was imported from the UK, which was originally imported to the UK from Japan. It's now for sale again in the UK (RHD).

It's advertised for £6,000 (USD $11,400) with all the mods, or £4,000 (USD $7,600) with a B16a1 and cheap wheels.

Here is the spec…..

General:
- Honda CR-X siR
- Grand Prix White
- Genuine Mugen bodykit

Enginebay:
- B16B CTR engine (20k KM)

- Teflon headshield gasket
- Short shifter
- WAI
- ALB removed
- Climate Control removed
- Wire tuck
- Relocated battery in the trunk
- OBD2B conversion, harness and ecu (ready to install)

Chassis:

This is the crx from the other thread on here. It'll probably sell for over $10K.

I don't know much about pricing of JDM crx's...
But the regular ones here seem to be staying the same price or going up!
There are less and less of these cars out there every day. The price can only go up.

That white one is from a friend of mine.
Not a fair comparison, as it was recently fully painted down to th elast nut and bolt. A bunch of stuff was replaced, shaven, or whathave you.

The B18B is also hard to find here in europe, since we did not get the 6th or 7th gen Civic R.
What a small world!!!! The car was originally bought from a mate of mine in the UK when it used to be black.

Typo i assume?
b18b is 2nd gen Integra, b16b is CTR and a 7th gen Civic R would have a k series in it, right?

Back to topic, finding decent stock Crx's locally for me is tough, nice, non rotted all to hell ones will pull a premium, but are few and far between in the NE US.

I'm from Indiana, and I couldn't find jack sh*t. I had to go to NC to get my rex and still pay a premium (bought it on Ebay)

From what I've seen CRX prices hit their low (in the U.S.) about four or five years ago. In my area back then you could get a decent, clean Si for less than $2500. Now that same car would fetch >$4000. The price is steadily climbing, just look at some of the insane prices unmodified CRX's are getting on Ebay. It's supply and demand.....the number of CRX's is shrinking, the number of people who want one is growing.

Just wait until the Gen Xer's (like me) start to retire, have a lot of disposable income, and want the car they drove (or wanted) in high school/college. Like the baby boomers wanting the Beetles, Mustangs, and Camaros they had in HS/college, the CRX will be a highly desirable car. Prices will rise significantly. CRX's will never be cheaper than they are right now.

But to everyone looking for one, keep searching, there's still deals out there. Since we're only now starting to see prices climb some people price them low thinking they're still just a cheap, old, economy car. Hey, if you look at the prices in KBB or NADA they are a cheap, old, economy car (but it's been a long, long time since I've seen a clean CRX go for KBB or NADA's pricing)......

I haven't ever had a problem finding CRXs for decent prices, although I'm willing to drive to get one. I drove up to Detroit to pick up my first car, found on AutoTrader, a 89 Y-49 Si with 104K, for $3000 (I think I might have talked him down a couple hundred bucks, maybe to $2800). The next CRX I got, as kind of a winter beater, was an 87 Si with just over 100K...I paid $2000 for it, and it was just a few miles from my house. My friend saw it with a "For Sale" sign while delivering pizza to the guy's house, and got his number for me. My current CRX was a straight-up trade for my almost bone-stock (intake and exhaust only) 91 Integra LS that had just turned 100K (I paid $3200 for the Teg at a dealer when it only had 72K miles on it). I found a guy from Chicago on honda-tech with a 91 CRX DX with a SOHC VTEC ZC swap, header, exhaust, intake, Si seats, a recent paint job (decent, but not great) and lots of other goodies who wanted to trade his car for something a little bigger -- a DA was on his list. So, we met up, checked out the cars, drove them a bit, and ended up agreeing on a straight-up trade. So, I'd say if I paid cash for it, it would have been around $2500-3000.

There are a lot of overpriced CRXs around, but there are also plenty of reasonably priced cars. AutoTrader has a LOT of people asking way too much for their cars, but if you check out honda-tech's classifieds you can get stock or swapped cars for awesome prices. People generally know what the cars are actually worth on that site, they don't try to act like a simple ZC or B16 swap adds thousands of dollars in value, and therefore the prices are totally reasonable.

If you don't mind driving a little bit to see a car (or if you live in a major area...California has TONS of cheap CRXs), you can find very good prices on honda-tech, and save a ton of money by getting a car with a lot of performance parts, engine swaps, etc. Even if you plan on putting your own engine in, you can save a ton just by buying a swapped car and getting the engine mounts (for a B-series, for instance) and everything else the swap requires as part of the purchase price of the car.

If nothing else, and if it means you save thousands of dollars (and with the prices I'm seeing on this thread, that WOULD be the case), you buy a plane ticket to sunny California, buy a rust-free car for a few grand less than you would at home (if you don't like the one you went to see, there are PLENTY more), and enjoy seeing the country and getting acquainted with your new car by driving it home.

Prices may be going up and cars becoming hard to find in your area, but there are still plenty of CRXs at great prices around. Just look in the right place and don't be afraid to drive a few hundred miles, and you can get the right car at the right price.
