    Hey forum
    So I'm on a strange but fortunate position where I have am choosing between a 98 vfr (FiW) and a 2000 vfr(FiY) both red. Is there any reason to go with a 2000 model over the 98, all else being equal? What would you choose, or does it not matter?

    I'm in Australia btw

    I think the 2000 has the wax unit auto choke thing, the 98 has a bar mounted lever. The 2000 has more restrictive headers with cats and o2 sensors the 98 doesnt and the 2000 possibly has the honda hiss system anti theft doo-dah. Think thats it, id go with the simplest 98

    My votes for the '98 as well
    No cat's, a little better performance.
    Enjoy!

    Although I have a 2001, I too would choose the 98 if given those two choices.

    ditto. If they do it the same down under with the cat, then go with the cat-less.

    If this is a trick question, then my answer would be "the one that is running"... :D
