Default Buying advice on Accord Type R

I'm looking at replacing my poor old Civic at last (13 years old now, Jap
import ... much better than the UK spec ones, but getting a little too long
in the tooth despite its excellent condition)!

Certain financial pressures (wife is expecting in June!) have forced me to
lower my original budget to about 5000 now. Looking through Parker's
guide, I see an S reg (1998) Accord Type R 2.2 is about that price for
private sale. As I want a four door saloon with a bit of umph that is also
safe and reliable, this seems a good option.

Anything to look out for on the Accord Type R's around that age? Has there
been a body shape change since then? How much does mileage affect them? Do
they like being driven aggressively (I come close enough to red-lining my
Civic every day ... more because it needs it to shift quickly ... and it's
had virtually no problems in 7 years of owning it)?
