Must just add my comments.
JUST MY PERSONAL OPINION
I am not mad, neither am I rich but I have worked hard all my life and due to early retirement, was in a position to "treat" myself.
What to get?
I bought my first Civic in 2000. Brand new. 1.5. Serviced once a year. Part exchanged in 2003 after requiring one stop light bulb.
Bought 2nd Civic, 2.0 S. Brand new. Kept that for four years. Serviced once a year. Needed nothing. Part exchanged for my 3rd Civic in 2007. Type R GT. Best value for money car I have ever had. I must admit, I did have to replace all the brakes and discs, well you would wouldn't you?
All the cars have done similar mileage (10K a year, which I accept is not huge), and in similar circumstances.
I have now gone mad and spent nearly 30K on a .......Civic.
I have professionally driven BMW - Mercedes - Jaguar
This current car is as good as, if not better in certain circumstances, than anything the above can provide with a similar spec and price.
Problem is, it's a Honda!
I am sitting down and ready for the comments........
