I doubt the shift light will function with the CEL on. Try to find out what you need to put in to get it running right before you buy it.

I paid $2100 for mine in Aug 2007, no body damage, no CEL's, and it passed CA smog with no maintenance required.

VX Bubble?

The VX, CX, HF and even DXs seem to be in the midst of a price bubble right now. This is a very tough decision, made worse by the fact that you tend to have to make it quickly with incomplete information. Remember, the CX line continued into the next generation, and the HX is also a possibility. With a VX of this vintage (and it's a good vintage!) I think what you have to ask yourself is "How much work are you willing to do?"

It seems that a lot of people would be willing to buy a VX at almost any cost in this forum. I am among them. But almost no one is parting with them. I guess you know that all too well. But here is the great news. If you get a VX, it seems easier to deal with a burned out engine than the wheel wells! You can't drop a wrench in here without hitting someone who has done a DX to VTEC-E swap. Honda engines seem to pop in and out like Legos.

If you are willing to swap an engine anyway, it seems like the ideal solution is to find someone with a VX with good peripherals (body, suspension, interior, transmission) and do an engine swap. VTEC-E engines are supercheap because Tuner kids have spent the last ten years pulling them out of anything that rolled to make their Fast and Furious cars.

So, where are you on what work you are willing to undertake?
