Finally got the camera out.

Well, for Wheelchair and everyone else waiting for their Civic fix here are a couple of photos I took yesterday.

We got the car on Wednesday night. I decided to take it to work on Thursday morning, big mistake. When I came out to go home that afternoon I couldn't believe how dirty it was. Therefore it went for it's first wash on Saturday afternoon. We went for a spin on Satusday so I didn't have time to take any photos then.

The first one is her pride and joy on the left and mine on the right. It really should be, my pride and joy on the left and mine on the right



If you look at my nickname you'll get an idea what I used to do at the weekends (and hopefully will from the start of next year). so the registration plate is very appropriate.



Thankfully the rain hides the dirt.

Indeed, that was my first thought when the salesman demonstrated how the seats folded.

Well by the time I got the computer fired up (these steam powered computers are so slow ), and then uploaded the photos to photobucket it was bed time. Apart from that, I thought you'd enjoy them more if you had to wait.

Well it was worth the wait, your car looks very smart.

There's not many of us on here with those exclusive and rare wheels!

Yea I know. I just thought we'd be different and go for the flashy wheel trims instead of those nasty and cheap looking alloy wheels

I was a dubious to start with, but once I'd got the car I thought they looked ok. Especially the colour of them, the dirt wont show too much.

The 1.4SE 2005 model had alloys but they looked so dull, you'd have never guessed they were!

Great car.

You're not supposed to say that. But you're right. I still like the Focus as well.

There's not much between them. And I didn't notice the shine on the focus until I took the photo. Not bad considering I haven't had the polish out all year.

Great car

I know its your personal opinion but you cant really compare the good looks of the Civic to a Focus. Thats wrong !!
Nice pics and great car though (Civic I mean)
