JDM civics came with the EPS - you can convert it.. Here is the shopping list
EPS Contol Unit
Harness from the Rack to EPS control Unit
Spare time (abt 2 days) to try to wire up the systems high current and low current system and then spidering into the dashboards multiplexer too - to enable an EPS warning light.
IMO its not that much of a difference.. to me it feels more remote and stupid
