I've bought 07 Civic Sport 2.2 recently and would like to thank you already for the amount of information available on this forum.
After many years of driving mainly German cars last year I bought myself my firs Japanese car. It was Lexus LS430, lovely car to drive, comfortable and very powerful. Unfortunately due to change of jobs I have to commute to work on my motorcycle now. Because of that I drove Lexus only 300 miles in 8 weeks and couldn't justify to keep it. Since I was very impressed with Lexus I decided to buy small Japanese car. I have to admit that even after 10 years Civic still looks good. I have to say that fuel consumption from motorway journey showing close to 60mpg is a bit a relief after 16mpg in Lexus.
Unfortunately paintwork on Civic is a joke and I never saw so many stone chips on bonnet and front fenders on a car with less than 100k on the clock.
So far I managed to clean the car properly inside, then gave paintwork a bit of spa (wash, claybar, autoglym deep shine, farecla g3). Plastic trims has been restored to a former glory. I don't plan to spend to much on a car but few things will be done. I've ordered cobra flush parking sensors, both side skirts (old ones have most fixings broken) and air con need to be looked at as it's not working at the moment.
Maybe at some point I will remap the car to unlock the potential but only of I can find the place that don't charge to much.
