Eco display Eco display
Looks very good in silver and a nice glance
You'll love it when you can give it the beans.
The first time, keep the revs around 4000 in second and then put your foot down, the most impressive part of the 1.8
Happy cruising

Very nice.

I waited 240miles until the v-tec rev lights got the better of me. lol

26k miles later and its still as fresh as the day it was delivered.

Happy civic ownership.
