Thumbs up My first civic NHB

Just exchanged my Focus to a 06 civic 1.8 SE. Afraid that's all I can afford!. I'm slowly doing it up when I've saved enough. Next step, front fogs fitted from my mate with mates rates! Will post pics soon.

Honda service

I picked the car up on Monday 17th Sept from Chatham Honda, All I can say is the service was excellent, fully valeted, serviced, decent part exchange for my Ford. Top Gear was right when they say customer satisfaction from Honda was No. 1, 2 and 3!

This is a 1.8 and some letters after it, seems to be quite gutsy so far, I don't want to stress the engine too much...yet. I don't know it's full potential yet but so far so good. The 6 gears takes time to get use to. This has only done like 5k miles for a 1yr old car! not bad

Haha, I thought I might give it a different look instead of the usual horizontal look. Clutch control is essential!!

I'm on 17'' now

I managed to get old of a mint condition 17'' with new mitchellin tyres @ a knock down price. Just standard Honda 7 spoke but what a difference to the look!

I must admit, the Focus wasn't a bad car to drive but Civic is streets ahead in terms of style. I definitely will not go back!

It's a big thumbs up for the change of alloys.

I'm off to the doctors now with a bad neck.
