Bronze Civic Type S GT with 18" blades (1st look)

Well it's a small world, my brother-in-law was over at our house today telling me he picked up my car (works for car transporter company) and dropped it at his yard prior to be delivered to the dealers on Monday. So off to the yard with my camera I went, luckily it was in view from outside the security fence so managed to get a sneak preview.

More pictures will appear later this week.

It's ok, he assure's me its very safe, he also informed me that it wouldn't start, hence it abandoned. He said the battery must be dead, something I'll take up with the dealer on Monday.

It will look a lot better once the coloured splitters fitted and the protective covers removed.

Oooh just had a thought

If he is delivering yours - he will (or the firm he works for)
will be delivering our civic when it arrives

Who are they - where do they hang out ??

Looks good. I bet you can't wait.

Is it just me or does Deep bronze look a lot like black when the sun isn't shining?

Looks very good and I also think it looks like black when the sun isn't shining. A lot of fun with it

When we 1st seen the car in the showroom, we thought it was black, until the salesman pointed out it was bronze when standing in one position where the sunlight was striking the car.

I can't wait to see it in the summer, it's very much like my bike, as the orange looks totally different when in the sunshine

Wink Dirty car's....lol

Battery is ok, b.i.l. must have been winding me up as it was working fine when at garage. Car looks dirty, mind u not as dirty as the Accord just now.

Noticed a chip on the door on the N/S edge, will await PDI to see if they spot it and fix it.

Next time I see it, it'll be clean & the image pack will be fitted.

Until Friday.......

Question

At the dealers late last night dropping off the certificate of insurance, car was on forecourt with number plates and the image pack fitted. It was too dark to take photos but it'll look well wicked on Friday in the daylight.

Is it Friday morning yet??
