Hi from South Africa

Hi all.

I am a new civic owner from South Africa.

I previously owned a 2000 Civic Hatch 1.5, then a 2006 Civic LXi sedan and then for several years had several bikes only and the a Jeep Wrangler 2 years ago.

I sold my Jeep 2 weeks ago and then bought a 2006 Civic Hatch EXi - our model variations are a little different it seems. Mine has 16" alloy wheels, fog lights, single zone climate control, cloth interior, no cruise control. It has/had some cosmetics things that needed some attention hut mechanically seems great with 103 000km only. I have already replaced a fog light, painted the window control panels in aluminium, painted the scratched shiny black instrument cluster surround in a glossy gunmetal colour and a couple of other smaller things.

So far I love this car. One thing that still bothers is really dismall radio reception. Still trying to find the source of the problem.
