Hello from Trinidad

Hi everyone,

I'm from the caribbean, Trinidad to be exact. In my Country we don't carry the Euro Civics in our model lineup. I was looking for advice in the area of acquiring a Civic 5D 1.8 w/ i-shift as my daily driver, and was wondering if anyone can offer any advice.

Vehicle owned: 2005 Subaru Impreza 1.6TS Sedan, 16mags.

Hi A good place to start is the wiki - click on this link.
Main Page - Civinfo Wiki

Note this forum only covers the Euro Civic.

I bet the weather in Trinidad is better than it is in Scotland just now !

Welcome Nightstorm!

Are you saying you want to specially import one of the Euro-Civics to Trinidad?

Cool!
Have you found a dealer in Europe that can help you?

Just out of curiosity, which side of the road do you drive on in Trinidad?

Welcome to the forum! (Although I am new as well! )

Hello nightstorm!

Welcome to the forum.
Sounds great.
You're right about that, the 5-door version is incredible practical..
I'm imaging you'll feel a bit exclusive in Trinidad when driving around in an 8th gen euro Honda civic..

Hi nightstorm,

did you manage to ship a Civic down to Trini?

What were the costs like and if you did, are you ok with spare parts, etc from the local dealers?

My wife is from Trini and we have discussed moving down there from the UK and I'd hate to leave my Civic here..

Thanks,

Chris
