Looks tidy that - usual caveats apply, suspension bushes / look for accident damage.

Listen to it start from cold, check clutch pedal feel is light and isn't on the way out .... no odd noises, doesn't pull or wander under brakes / under load.

90k miles is going to need some attention somewhere but if the base car is good, that's half the battle.

Thanks for the help. Does the paint look right to you. Iv also noticed through mot search that front tyres keep wearing on the inside. What could be causing this, anything significant(expensive).

Bushes / incorrect geo - too much toe in will cause that. Car needs suspension setting up correctly.

That said, you'll be lucky to see 15k out of fronts and 8k out of rears if you drive it hard

It does look tidy.. there can be seized adjusters on the suspension meaning it cannot be setup correctly, if you don't mind the DIY it's not a nightmare but it can be time consuming and the bolts from Honda are pricey

i like moonrock

It's not a AP2, just a facelift car

Well worth a look imo
