Electron Blue Honda Civic Si Just Sold for Big Cash
Unicorns also come in Electron Blue. Check out this immaculate EM1 Si!
Here we are again with yet another perfect example of a clean EM1 Si that recently sold on Bring A Trailer. Something is telling us that it might be ideal time to shop around and pick one up. This particular EM1 Civic Si is a 1999 model with 97K miles in the ever gorgeous, and sought after, Electron Blue. Currently located in Deerfield, Illinois, this EM1 stayed with its original owner up until recently. It was purchased brand new in California and eventually made its way to Michigan, then Illinois. The seller states that the car was never driven in the snow, which is satisfying to hear. A clean Carfax, records from new, the original window sticker, LoJack registration and a clean Illinois title in the seller’s name will comes with purchase.
98% bone stock is still stock right? Or is it…
Looking at the exterior, the original Electron Blue paint looks to be a great condition. The seller states that front driver’s side fender was replaced due to a minor fender bender incident and notes that warranty certificate for the repair is included in the file. The headlights and window glass are all original OEM. A small chip on the front windshield was noted and can be seen in the photos.
According to the report, the EM1 remains mostly stock minus the adjustable front upper control arms and Neuspeed lowering springs. The factory dampers are still in place. The seller mentions that the ride is a bit bumpy, meaning the shocks should probably be replaced soon.
Did the owner even drive the car? Check out the interior!
Taking a look inside, it’s like being transported back to 1999 with how clean the interior is. The seats have minimal signs of wear that look in better condition than the ones in my 2012 Civic Coupe. The radio buttons do look a bit worn, however, all the other buttons and dials seem to be in better condition. The A/C works and the seller notes that the passenger side power door lock doesn’t work, but can still be operated manually.
The B16A2 DOHC VTEC inline-four engine remains stock, with the factory intake, header, and exhaust still intact. Records of the most recent service done in July of this year shows the EM1 was taken in for a multi-point inspection, oil and filter change, a new valve cover gasket, and a new engine air filter. Another oil change was done last month as well.
After 15 bids, the EM1 ended up selling for $9,300. As good as the EM1 is, nine grand is crazy talk, at least to us. Would you have pulled the trigger for this Si? Let us know on the forum!
