Type S - 1 week old

Well, I've had my car for a week now and am loving it so far - only complaint is that it doesn't 'remember' the position of the driver's seat when you tip the seat forward to get to the back like my last car did.
I've only taken one photo of it as it was raining, but already the alloys are looking grubby.

Nice car.

Unfortunately, as you have found out, the Civic doesn't have 'memory' seats.

Looking nice

It's one thing that puts me off the Type S the no memory seats - it would frustrate the hell out of me!

Great colour!!!!

Mine is FILTHY at the moment... but still goes well.
Being a 5 door...no trouble with the seats but as has been said... Passenger side only!! should solve the problem

The car looks just so rightThe only Civic that looks better than your combination is a Milano red Type R

If the body plastics were painted,but as standard I reckon the NHB looks better than the Milano Red-but Then I chose NHB so I guess I'm biased

If you slide the base of the seat back first then raise the back rest part it does go back into place not completey the same but at least you dont have ram ya legs between the seat and the steering wheel!!! If you just lift the back rest first it wont slide back unless you use the lever!!!

Thanks for all the comments. The longer I've had it, the more I'm pleased I chose black - I think it looks smart with all the honda logos on the wheels, grill etc being in black (hey, its the small things in life)

Jayne - thanks for the tip about the seat.
