A nice looking car you have there
What type of wheels have you got fitted, they look like the ones fitted to the EX

Yep.
I'm sure there must be a reason for having a Skoda keyring in a new Honda.....perhaps Robbo51 got it for such a good price that the the dealer couldn't afford to give a Honda one? Or perhaps it is a technique Robbo uses to stop someone nicking his keys? (not that I have anything against Skodas!).

What's the reason Robbo?

Terry: sharp eyes to spot that! And love the "stop people nicking the keys theory"!

It´s probably all part of a masterminded scheme to lobby for more Civinfo merchandise, like key-rings..

I might of guessed there would be someone who mentioned the key ring. Yes Ive just traded in a Skoda Fabia vRS because I needed a bigger car. The Skoda was the best car I have ever owned. Very quick, well built and economical. As you no doubt know, they are part of the VAG group. I will always keep the keyring on and continue to go to 'Briskoda' meets with the Civic. I do hope you will be friendly in this Forum?? Comments like the Skoda keyring make me think otherwise. End of rant

They couldnt get me a red Type S GT with the standard wheels. They had one with Anthracite 18" ones BUT wanted 600 extra. I said NO, so they swapped them with an EX in the showroom

No offence taken.
I used to get ribbed at work about the Skoda.
I was comforted in knowing that they knew bugger all about cars.
Ive been ribbed now because there is a perception that Hondas are for 'old' people!!
..kin idiots!!
