Finally got a clean

Finally got some decent weather today so got to give the car its first proper clean.

Had it six weeks now, totally impressed by it.
Never thought of a civic to replace our Mazda 6, but when we found out it does double the mpg, half the road tax & can tow the same weight as a mazda we decided to go for it & found this.

I like the wheels, if you get it colour coded though it would look amazing.

Love that colour, was gutted when I went to order mine to be told that Honda had just stopped producing the Tangerine.

+4 for colour coding

Thanks folks
I don't know what the story with the alloys is. I've not seen another civic with them.
I was sitting next to another Type S GT in the same colour & same year on sunday & it had different alloys.

Clocked an accord with them on once.

I'm trying to pass colour coding past the "finance commitee", I'll let you know what she sez!

Lovely! Don't colour code it, it's one of the few civic colours that suits the grey body kit and the contrast makes it really stand out, especially when you spend a day cleaning it!

Maybe think about getting the new Type S spoiler, it would really finish off the look.

Hubby has been trying to persuade me that the perspex grill will look so much better if it was changed for the newer Type S one or the Si grill... one of the cheaper mods to do but we'll see. One of the things I love about the car and colour is the front end.
