go with the hatch, in the long run you wont regret it. VTEC doesnt really make the car much better. its just a matter of a few horse power.

I wouldnt say just a few horsepower... depends on who you talk to...

But I will second the HB though. Get the HB and feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel the slowness of a cx motor and when you swap it will be like night and day! You'll appreciate it!

The CX would be just as cheap as the 4 door. CX is base model, no power steering, no tach, a few other things like lower horsepower. To the insurance company it is a pretty basic affordable economic car.
Personnaly my brothers eg hatch is cheaper than my si(canadian yes) coupe of the same year.

seems too good a deal on the hatch to be true. if its in great shape, get the hatch. I mean, the 5th gen sedan is hideous and boring as **** looking. the CX is better, and has serious potential. Plus its OBD-II, easier to work on in my opinion, more ready for higher level upgrading, better car i think. hey, its your money, but my vote is the hatch.

hatch it up , i was looking for the hatch, but i found my 2nd sedan for 700 on h-t (vouch for jsw1gga) and its great, but i still wish i had a hatch.
d series turbo it up!!!!! with the money u buy the b18 for u can have a newer d series motor and turbo kit. but thats my opinion

Hatch Pro's -
Light
Good milage
Excellent potential
Friends less likely to bum rides
Easy to put stuff in the back

Sedan Pro's -
Power lock/windows
Easier to get a child seat in the back
