New Here - Civic 1.8 Sport

Hello to all,




i am new to this, and looking at the 1.8 Sport I-Shift (5 Door) What are the different options that i can change within the Driver Computer, What are the "Extras" that you get that are not on the SE

Also Is the Garnish (Side Skirts ect) Colour Coded or Gray as thats one thing that puts me off.

Thanks.

The drive computer shows
Current mpg
Average mpg
Journey time
Ave speed
Miles to go until fuel tank empty
and something else I have forgotten for now

As for the extras on a Sport over the SE, it is the HID headlights, 17" wheels, front fog lights and a leather wrapped steering wheel.

The trim comes unpainted on all Civics except the Type R. But it can be colour coded, the dealer will probably be able to quote you for it.

the one you missed Foggy was the one which shows who is wearing a seatbelt (or not)

The same display is also used for important messages from the car like "fill up with fuel!" or "it's cold outside" amongst others

(actually these two are "fuel low" and a pic of a road with a snowflake - but I prefer mine )

blue ambient is extra (can't recall exactly how much, £70 rings a bell).

It IS great
But not entirely sure if it's £70 worth of great...

There is a much cheaper DIY solution in the How To section

The extra agressivness of the R body kit really gets a thumbs up from me too

BUT (and it's a HUGE but!)
there is a kit (Image Pack from memory) for the 5 door, which is very nice.
Beware though that parts of it come colour coded, and the plastic bits around them aren't...

The R body kit, which looks similar, but as if it's on steriods, does not fit the 5 door
Well - a couple of owners in here have managed to get it to, but it's FAR from easy
The R kit does however, fit directly on to the Type S - but that doesn't help you much, sorry!

Probably your best bet is to have a good wander through the gallery in here and see what catches your eye

Thats one thing that puts me off - the black plastic Trim on the 5door, still might get a 3dr undescided - but either way its gunna be the 1.8 i-shift -

What is the ECO and REV light for - when i was on the test drive i noticed the green eco light flashing a fair bit but not so much the Rev, ( apart from when i joined a dual carriage way)

Thanks

You can get someone to colour code a 5 door at extra cost.

The ECO lights show how economically you are driving.

The REV lights come on at high revs to remind you to shift up to the next gear. But only at quite high revs.

both are 3 sets (of 2 LEDs per set)

you can turn either / both off via the computer if they bug you, but most owners seem to leave them turned on

No... but it is in the manual.

One has not obtained the car yet so i can't get the manual, unless there is a online one?

I am quite sure that there is no online version of the manual. You will just have to buy a civic to get the pleasure of all 500+ pages unless you have a mate who has a civ who will lend you their copy.

Just a note of the ECO meter. I find this is a real incentive to drive ECO friendly trying to get as many lights lit as possible. Probably a bit sad but I have only had mine for four days. The novelty may wear off.

I had exactly the same problem, the dealer lent me one from one of the cars in the showroom for a couple of nights. That's all you need to have a good read through.

May well be worth asking them if they can do the same.
