My New Type-S =)

Hi, i joined this forum a few weeks ago and picked up my 2007 Type S GT 2.2 CDTi last week. Have only just had a chance to give it nice clean and get some pictures.
Im loving the Civic, really nice to drive, full of gadgets and pulls really hard. Alot better quality than my last car...a peugeot 207 gt turbo.

Its standard at the moment apart from the front grill which i think looks really smart but i have a few plans such as the type R spoiler and maybe lowering it plus some other accessories. Maybe colour coding too.

I fitted some Type S decals today and also have some wind deflectors on order =)

Nice motor mate.

Get it colour coded. A few people say because it's black it won't make much difference but it does.

One of the best things I done to my CTS when I had it.

There's a type s spoiler in the for sale section.
Not as chunky as the CTR spoiler but still looks good and easier to fit.

You may read on here that some have had problems with their Civics, but I didn't have a single problem worth mentioning with my 2.2 Type S GT, in the 4 years I owned it.
