I should be ashamed

For a long time now Iíve been driving simply to get from A to B, I would happily leave the car in the garage all weekend if thereís no reason to take it out.
Well, thatís all changed, Iíve had my Type S for a week now and I just want to drive it all the time, Iím burning diesel just for the fun of it, I know thatís very irresponsible and not vary environment friendly but I just canít help it, I love this car.

It happens, it's all part of owning a Civic.

The car looks great.

It's true, it's all part of owning a civic - spending money of driving it

Very nice car, by the way

"male sexual glands" (it was "b * l l * x ") ! ... "global warming" does NOT exist ... it's the next Ice Age that is actually threatening us !!! ...

So, we Civic drivers - by driving as much as possible (and emitting lots of luvverly CO2) - are in reality saving the Planet ...

Yes indeed it seems to be the norm, once you get in a civic you just don't want to leave it. I have had my civic about 6 months now, I don't use it for work, but have done over 4500 miles in the civic just for the hell of it.

You really should take your responsibility for the environment far more seriously - it really is very irresponsible to drive the car just because you enjoy it. Who do you think you are? Jeremy Clarkson? I have to say it's the same with 'meets' - dread to think what their carbon footprint is! And others on this forum should not encourage this behaviour.

So please stop using your cars unnecessarily - think of the environment for goodness' sake.

(I just hope this will lead to more people simply parking their cars at home.....so I can have a blast in my Koni equipped, diesel powered rocket ship - oh for some quiet roads....)

Yes, I echo Morris Minors comments. You should be REALLY ashamed of yourself in adding to the already over poluted atmosphere of this world.... well, that will keep HIM happy!!

Now, go out and enjoy EVERY minute of your beautiful car!!

I’m glad you guy’s like my car and I get comfort in knowing that you’re all as shameless as me where the environment is concerned
St. Thomas, the green civic is real cool, don’t be surprised if when the new civic is launched it’s available in that green
Bludot, the Blades are not quite Black but a vary dark gray, I was told at the Honda dealer they were vary unusual.
Keith.

That looks exactly like Viper Green. Another bio/eco car if you ask me...
