4 Hours and Counting....

Well, the day has finally dawned. We`re picking up the Civ at high noon.

-Type S GT, Vivid Blue Pearl.

Severe weather warning appears to be in force. Bl**dy typical... ;-(

Planning to take along the camera and snap a few at the dealers when picking it up, so will post something up later on.

Hope the thing doesn`t leak!!!

Well, finally she`s home and safe!

Despite the truly horrible weather, it was a great day. The car is gorgeous, and drives just wonderfully. Many thanks to all the excellent staff at DeVries Honda for their help and attention to detail.

Time to start looking for some 17" alloys now I fear.

The spaceship`s now taken her place in the stable, where she`s in good company. Heavy cleaning day tomorrow I think

Yes, very nice in Vivid Blue!
Not bad with a Ferrari as a daily run about either though...

A very nice looking car you have there, and that red thing ain't too bad.

The spaceship has 17" alloys already, you need to be on the lookout for 18" alloys

If you are leaving the gray trim unpainted then the Blades look the dog's dangly bits

I thought they`d look pretty good Foggy. Did wonder about colour coding the gray bits, but to be honest I think they`ll be better off left alone. Cheers **.

I have a vivid blue with 17" Pentas, which are grey too, I think it looks great against the trim.

That is a first rate polish job.
