Hello from France

Hello, I'm new here and a Frenchie boy from Valence, on south east of France, and my name is Benoît.
I am a 22 (almost 23) years old car guy.

I own a Prefacelift ATR from october 1998 (the 15th).
So I think it's one of the first Accord Type R in Europe, and even the first french ATR.

For the little history, at the start I searched for an Impreza WRX, but since the dude wanted to rip me off with a Paypal payment before to see the car I decided to search for another sporty japanese sedan, then I remembered about the Acccord Type R.

So one week after that I'd go see and buy my ATR.

The actual colour is moonrock grey, but I want to repaint it like factory new, which is with White Championship.

She is not so beautiful but she give me joy to drive it.

Here are the pictures.

Yes I am interested, but the car is not perfect

And I forgot to mention that now 155 600 km (which is the equivalent of 248 960 miles).

Hi Ben! Happy to see you also here!

I think you've made a mistake about the km:miles conversion .
See you soon on the french forum!

Anyhoo, welcome along dude. And I do see why you want Championship White, I had a CW Integra so I know the appeal 😍

Yes you two are right, I made the conversion in the wrong sense.

In the right sense it's 97 250 miles

moyz: about the paint color, i suppose that it is also because CW is the original color of Ben019's car, it has been reprayed and Ben want to go back to it's original color . :agree:

Yeah, the ones sold in mainland Europe came with CW as an option. Here in the UK you only got red, silver or black 😭

I see that you remember well what I was saying on the HAP forum, yep the CW is its original colour.

It's so bad that oone of the ancient owners repainted it (and with a dirty work).

What colour is the white NSX ?

I cannot answer to you Moyz, i Don't know if you were dreaming or not :dunno:

About the paint color code, if i'm right, NSX code is NH 565 and ATR is NH0, but correct me if im' wrong :hello2:
