Nearly Newbie

Hi All

I'm about to become a Civic 2.2 SE owner

It was on my company car list (my 1st company car)

The list was

Audi A3 1.9 TDi

Ford Focus 1.8 TDi Zetec Climate

Honda Civic 2.2 SE

Volvo V50

VW Golf Match 1.9 TDi

So i have to let them know tomorrow and i have obviously chosen the Civic or i would not be here.

Apparently the lease hire company have them in stock so i should have it before the end of the week.

I would like the Galaxy Grey or Blueish Silver

I can't wait

Think you made the best choice.
You will LOVE the engine.
For a first company car cannot be bad.
Plenty to read and look at on here.
Hope the job goes as well as the car...

Good choice - I nearly went with the Golf Match but I'm sooooo glad I didn't.

My car's on lease and I knew it was sat at the dealers somewhere in Leicester but had to be patient and wait for the lease co. to do their livery rubbish.......but it did come eventually

Nice colour choice but the grey's better lol

Hi Debera

I did ask for a Galaxy Grey one, but they had none in stock so i had to go with my second choice of Alabaster Silver.

I really do hope i love it on the down side i only have it for two years.

I just hope that the civic will still be on the list for 2009.

Roll on Wednesday.

Glad it has arrived safely.

Keep it clean.

That colour needs the shine to show it off to it's full potential.

Thanks! The wheels are actually 17" Accord wheels (as in sig) and came with the car - I bought it as an ex demo.

Got to take some more shots of mine - just got a new camera (Nikon D40X SLR) so want to try it out...
