The New Type-S

Hi all,

Went to view the Type-S that I will be picking up on Tuesday.

Garage have just replaced the brakes and pads, completed a full service, Tax and MOT'd the car for me and it comes with 40k on the clock, full service history and only 1 old lady owner.

In my opinion the car looks pretty damn clean, its not got a scuff or stone chip in site and the wheels are, from what I can tell, not damaged and look new.

Anyway, what do you guys think?

Hi Wardy, thanks mate, its the 2.2 CDTi and it was the 40k miles that was the selling point for me.

I will also be in touch at the end of September to get my key converted, saw the thread and your work is amazing

Make sure you park at the opposite side of car parks where people are too lazy to park

That's a good mileage! Plenty left in it! Looks well kept in the pic, too!

What's the plan for mapping? And any other mods wanted?

40k on an 08 plate can also hide a whole list of horrors. This one looks good, I purchased my 08 2.2 on 35k..... and its got some skeletons in its closet!

Mileage doesn't mean anything mate that's all I was trying to say. Neither does purchasing from a main dealer it seems as they are quite happy to sell a crock of crap if they think they'll get away with it.

I saw a Milano in the flesh for the first time yesterday, polished up nicely and looked absolutely stunning.

I have her booked in for the 27th October with Celtic Tuning and will just stick to cosmetic modifications like the grill, spoiler, lowering springs and maybe in time the GP kit. Also interior styling like a new dash for a screen and iphone connectivity, gear knob etc.

What should I be on the look out for? The garage has been really helpful and unlike other main dealerships they deal with discretion for 3 months if there is a fault... obviously wear and tear isnt including but we will see what happens.

On the plus side, my friend works for a Ford dealership who also have Honda attached so he can do a deal with trade prices and cheaper labour.

Yeah this one cosmetically looks like its come from the showroom. I have never been overly fond of red cars, but the Milano red does look stunning!

Thanks for your honesty though Mike

I've got it booked in for the stage 1 and I think after reading a lot of the feedback I'll put some money away for a clutch and flywheel and see how I get on!
