Yes spent a fortune on my type s, I hope I gone the right color, but after seeing your the white and black looks awesome . Do you find the car a better ride than the 8th gen?

The 9G is a better 'ride' than the 8G but I think a set of 18's is going to take some of that away.

I can answer that.
9th gen feels a bit spongy but comfortable in comparison to the type r but it's supposed to be.The type r felt like a go kart so completely different.
This doesn't directly point to boring though cause imo it's a lot more fun to drive then my avensis I recently switched from with the 1, 8 engine aswell.

The avensis, although not as exciting seemed to be more stable - but I'm having a run to the dealers on Friday for a check because imo the steering on my civic is a bit off.
When I set the steering wheel dead center, the car wanders slightly to the right.

From your opening thread, it appears you have picked up either a second hand, or pre-registered car as new registrations started 1st March?
I assume it is the 2012 model but just seems odd and also interesting, why the previous owner would sell after less than 6 months ownership.
I must admit, the white with contrasting black does look good. Mine of course is just black!
Anyway. Enjoy it.
Keep us posted with the new wheels.

The car is a 62 plate, and was owned by the Honda factory in Swindon, looking forward to having it

I have the exact same issue with the steering - veers slightly to the right.

Hmmmm that's odd but interesting.
A alignement should fix it.
If the dealer refuse and say it's fine, I will have to pay a shop to do it myself.
I'm very picky when it comes down to basic things like this.
What if I don't enjoy the car as much as I could be doing cause of minor alignment issues.
Tires can get worn wrongly and cornering/cruising can suffer.

I remember having an issue with my fn2 ctr where it tracked too much and I had to correct steering more then usual.
Dealer salesman who owned a ctr himself drove with me and said it was normal and nothing to worry about.
This didn't go away until I got new rims and tires down the line but it was surely a difference to me.
It's a 50 minute trip to where I bought it from and I feel I will get screwed over again going there on Friday.

It has been annoying me as well. I thought it was related to my brakes as I felt some torque steer when braking, but the dealer insists the brakes are free so it must be wheel alignment.

It still drifts slightly to the right, and just doesn't feel normal. Will be interested to hear what the dealer says to you.

I know it's of no consolation but mine is fine so it's not a generic problem

It's a know issue, so if the dealer tries to fob you off... show them this service bulletin...

Mine is slightly like it and will get it looked during it's first service.

Thanks for that mate. Reassuring it's not just my car or that i'm going mad.

I'll get it booked in, and will use that if they insist there's no issue.

Fantastic!

I will e-mail this to the dealer and call them up to make them prepared.

--edit--

I just phoned them and with this bulletin they understood me better.
They thought I meant it Always wander to the right (when I let go of the steering Wheel) but it's actually only when I "force center" it.
So the steering Wheel is probably one step wrong on the "cog" sort of speak.
I'm going there tomorrow already and hope for a Quick fix
