Hello charlas!

Welcome to the forum, and welcome back to the world of petrol engines.
That's great engines, especially Hondas i-vtec engines.
I love it, after all it is (one of) Honda's trade mark.

Welcome to you Charlas,

You're forgiven because of your car

But I love the torque of my oil burner ! (Ok the Hi rev of a petrol engine miss me a bit)

Once you're used with your new ride don't forget to fill in the various surveys. And post asap a pictures of your "new pride and joy" in the gallery section

Oh and give your comments about your dealer in the wiki section.

Thanks and congratulation

Will clear the M5, M6 etc so you can give it a "run out"
OK, I love my diesel but you will love your petrol.
Hi & welcome......
Is it 12 yet?
Pics as soon as. Sunny here (if cold!)

Just rang the dealer to make sure all was ok, and it is, theve even thrown in the mats, mud guards and supergaurd for free.. The dealer has been superb so far... even if they did originaly want to charge me the same price for one of the 3k dealer Type-R's.

The only thing I'll miss is the torque... trading in my Skoda Fabia vRS, and yes it's a Skoda, and was cheap, but it was a hoot as well, and served me without issue for 5 years (got one of the launch cars, number 67 in the UK in fact).

I think dealers in Coventry have one thing in common, bloomin good... as my Skoda dealer was (and still is as the PD140 is the wifes) excelent.

Right now to decide if to get the Type-R stickers off ebay for it, not sure it suits the Red car?

Pics when I get her home

Enjoy your lovely Space Ship.

Yup all good.... just been ...... out

Loverly car, just 2 niggling issues, have to add all the contacts to the HFT manually.... my parrot used to sync it up, and cant seem to get the steering wheel high enough, or the seat low enough (one or the other) as the rim of the wheel blocks sight to the top of the rev and the warning lights.

But that aint gonna bother me too much

Luv it, and Milano Red IS the colour to have!
