Civic Sport with extra Horse Power

This is my Civic with one Hp extra. It was the first time with this car to tow the trailer with the horse of my daughter. I found something new when the trailer electric was connected. The rear sensors where automaticly shut off. That's nice when moving backwards to park the trailer.

Peter,

Just take care that your civ reaches your destination sooner then the extra horsepower.
Nice pic.

Peter.
Did they fit the tow bar and electrics at the garage before delivery, or did you get it done later?
I sometimes pull a trailer (no horse) and was wondering................
Also, any comments with the i-shift?

They fixed the towbar before delivery. In the manual from Honda they advise to drive in de automatic mode so the electronic can control the gear.

Interesting.
In Sweden, according to the catalogue, you cannot combine parking sensors and towbar.

Also, I am guessing that that one extra hp is the most expensive hp gain tuning EVER.
And with the decrease power to weight ratio, I am not entirely sure I will go the same way.

That is why the advise a removable towbar. Normal driving has the towbar in the trunk.
