Hello from someplace you've never heard of!

The place is Ackworth btw, it's in West Yorkshire near Wakefield.

Hi, joined a couple of days ago and wanted to pop my posting cherry . I haven't got a Civic, yet. But I'm definitely considering getting one. I've gotten fed up of my Pug. 307 and am looking for something a bit more fun, so far the Civic is top of the list.

I also wanted to say thanks for this site, found out loads about the Civic here that isn't in the brochures.After studying the specs I'm probably going to go for a 2.2 Diesel EX, mainly because I love gadgets, will probably go for the iPod connector too. I've seen the comments, but I usually listen to Audiobooks, so just want a simple way to connect the iPod without taking half the car apart.

Based on the comments I'm a bit disappointed with the Sat Nav offered with the EX, especially from a company such as Honda, who are supposed to be innovators. I would have thought that an SD slot for personal POIs wouldn't be asking too much, plus what are they thinking charging 200 for the new disks.

Anyway I'm rambling, so I'll end it there.

Cheers

Welcome Dave!

No, never heard of it...

Map updates are not cheap from anyone I am afraid, but yes a SD slot for POIs would have been cool. Not that I miss it THAT much to be honest.

Welcome to the site and hopefully to Civic ownership in the not too distant future.

Welcome to you !

Build in Satnav whatever the brand of the car you buy are always less practical than PND... but maybe they are more efficient.

Go for the Ex...


PS : I've looked at your location with Google Earth. It look very nice.

Hi Dave
Go on do it! Civic is better on the inside that than the boring old two dial regulars!

Welcome Dave,

No never heard of the place, either!

I am not sure about in car sat nav anyway so I am glad my polish version doesn't have it.

But I think you will be very happy with a civic as it is a fantastic car to drive, travel in and to be seen in.

Hi, thanks for the welcome. I bit the bullet today and ordered a Galaxy Grey EX Diesel for delivery in March on an 08 plate. Ordered it with the iPod interface

I had a big grin on my face all the way home.

Well done Dave!
The EX is a good model - you won't regret the decision.
