    JBL is a brand of audio equipment, so maybe but probably not engine related. JDM is Japanese Domestic Market, is that the acronym listed? briefly, Civics in the US (until recently) came with the D-series engine from Honda, while Integras (and a few special Civic versions) had the more powerful B-series. In Japan the B-series was available in the CRX though, and there are lots of low-mileage B-series engines floating around japan for companies to ship over here, so a "JDM swap" is in theory at least a Japanese-market engine installed in a car here.

    Don't know how they are in price... but you could check out BMW 316Ti Compact.

    The engine (M43) in these cars are amasing... keeps going forever and for beeing a 1.6l engine... it delivers 103hp with out any breathing help.
    In other words... quite possible to drive very economical if needed.

    the car handels very good, and if you get the M-sports package or perhaps bilstein suspension... you've got yourself a realy good and nice car

    I had a 1994 model some years back, and i had bilstein PSS9 suspension on it.... out drove a Porsche 911 on a curvy road

    That's if you don't mind paying an amazing amount for BMW parts . . . I suspect Honda or Toyo parts are way less -- and on an older car, you'll need plenty of parts.
    .
    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, no old school Euro cars. You end up spending so much money. Plus I have a fear of BMW. My friend was going 140 MPH, when he was coming around the corner, the electrical system shut off, which controls 99.9% of the car. I kept telling him to claim the car was a lemon but BMW would not trade out the car. He couldn't turn the car because the electric steering and braking where gone and he flew over guard rail and fell 2 stories off a bridge. The car then slammed into the floor, continued to roll and exploded. Him and his wife died. I went after BMW with his children, but when they didn't care that their parents died and only cared about getting money, I withdrew all my evidence and what not.

    I agree, I had a Porsche 944 and when something breaks its so expensive. I had to get the timing belt changed that was $400.00 dollars. After sinking so much money into the car, the control arms went bad, they told me it would be like $700.00 per side to fix. I called a school and donated the car to them. I then bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee, the engine imploded, sued the dealer ship, they refunded me my money and I bought the Durango.

    What Crinos said about the BMW 316Ti Compact sounded very familiar:

    That's a lot like my Scion xB: 1.5l engine, 103hp without any breathing help.

    I run 225-40R18 Goodyear Eagle GTs on it, plus a rear sway bar. With the stick 5-speed, it's a blast to drive, corners like a skateboard, and is capable of cruising at 85 or 90mph. It'll run up against 30mpg every day.

    But I don't think there are too many bargains in xBs out there -- people seem to like 'em. They're inexpensive and fun.

    If you look for one, go for the stick shift. It makes a tame car into a fun toy. You run out of horsepower about 4000 rpm, but that's right when the torque really gets on, and off you go; it feels like you opened up another set of injectors.
