- Foxy the 2009 Civic

Here is my 2009 Civic ES 1.8 I picked up 3 weeks ago

I have named her Foxy (due to the numbplate, I'm not a weird pervet, lol) She's car number 7 and my second Honda - I seem to average keeping my cars for a couple of years, but this one I feel I'll have much longer.

I was after an FN2 Type R originally, then started looking at a Type S, due to the glass roof and being a HGV driver a quick car is a big no no - I need to keep my lisence clean.

This one popped up when I was going to give up my search and was only in the next street.

She isnt't spotless, there are a couple of dents and a few jobs need doing, but the service history is simply ridiculous, theres so much of it and the engine runs absolutly superb! The previous owner had the car for around 8 years and was being sold on behalf of his son, as he sadly passed away - it was a very sad experience as it was his pride and joy.

I have a few plans, boring jobs are a clutch peddle adjustment and the steering wheel is slightly out - better plans are a rear whiteline roll bar and just enjoy it.



Heres a couple of pictures next to my dads mk9:

Looking good!

It’s amazing how you build a list of jobs for a car that is in pretty good condition. I’ve had to constrain the budget for mine, so I don’t go silly.

Cheers buddy - it's in good condition, just a couple of bits bugging me

I might ignore the couple of dents, I'm a bit weird when it comes to parking usually

Not had chance to do much with the car due to work.

Got up at the crack of dawn this morning to have a little blast, I'm starting to gel with the car now, but starting to wish I maybe should have gone for a Type R

One thing I have noticed is I haven't seen another Civic with the same wheels, not sure if they are original to the car as they look like they are from a Type S Accord?

Cheers guys! Those cars look lovely

Already got a love / hate thing for this car - it's currently having a brand new clutch and rear axle bushes fitted, I've gone for powerflex polyurethane bushes, as it was such a good exuse to

It's currently had a wheel alignment and fresh clutch fluid in an attempt to fix it's clutch and floaty feeling issues, but didnt work, so new clutch and bushes. It's a big cost, but didnt have a choice unfortunately.

Hopefully the car will be running correctly when I get around to picking it up

And a couple of pics of the car with a better camera




















Really starting to enjoy this car now after all the bits are sorted. She's off for a trip to Dartmouth in September too, cant wait
