Extra Extra read all about it.........

Hi all,

Next saturday I'll be driving this beauty, because than I will be handed over the keys. I'm leaving my Renault Megane Privilege Grand Tour 1.9 dCi behind and hope for very very pleasant kilometers. I thought I would go for a very reliable car this time and never make a Renault mistake again.

I will post some more pictures without the transport material, but for now it is all I have.

It is a 2.2 i-CTDi Executive and as you can read in my signature I have added some Honda accessories.

Take Care,
Jumpman23

Today cleaned it for the first time. In 6 days I have driven 1800km so the car was dirty as hell , that's what you get when buying a NHB. But when you wash it it pays of very well..

Next week I drive to Paris so I probaly can wash it again when I return form Paris.

Looks like I will be washing it every week

NHB is a right pain to keep clean - but when its just been done, no ther colour comes close

(In my somewhat bias opinion anyway )

Very nice

After 3 weeks already I have driven 4000km (2500miles) and loving every km of it. This is is a picture of my Civic at a parkinglot at Disneyland Resort Paris. The engine is just amazing always got the power you need, and a decent mileage as well. It is a shame they did not fit a bigger fueltank (50ltr) is a bit small for such a car which makes driving sooooooo much fun. How is it with a petrol one I ask myself? but on the otherhand the V-power toy Ferarri collection is almost complete.

Next week I am getting my wintertyres fitted, has anyone any experience with a Civic with wintertyres?? Maybe some Civic drivers in scandanavian countries?? They will fit Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 225/45R17 at my request.

Well yes - but I use studded winter tyres.
Have Pirellis on the Civic - not the best, but OK.

I think studded winter tyres are illegal overhere (the Netherlands). But thanks for your respons. I'll let you know how the Michelins are doing in a couple of days.
