\Hi one and all
Iam looking to buy my first civic. One has caught my eye, its 07 i-ctdi ex black 5 door 2 owners and 50k.
Im looking for some info in what to look for when i view it at weekened.
Very impressed by all the reviews and cant wait to see it up close.is there anything i should know before i buy it or any questions that need to be asked. I have owned audi's for the last 10 years but im ready for a change...any help would be much appreciated .

thanks

Sorry to be the one pointing it out matey, but you'd be better posting in the more appropriate 'General Discussion' or 'Introduce Yourself' sections.

Welcome by the way!

Welcome to the forum mate.

Like coste1l said, the clutch and look for stone chips and ask them to fix it or knock some money off
