Hi and welcome to civinfo.

Esure was cheap for me, but as with everything it depends on your age, area you live and circumstances.

What colour you getting? Any extras?

Try one or two of those 'Comparison' sites.

Saves a lot of leg work and expensive telephone calls!

......you did say your forthcoming 'R' was Milano didn't you?

Hi ya, Thanks, Esure wont insure me for some reason but ive found Churchills to be quite good at the moment.

Im getting in Black. I wanted to get the Badge/Stickers put on and the Ipod Connection put in but have to wait another month for the money! Those ambient foot lightings look good too.......

You any extras?

Welcome to the site anyway CivicTypeRGT Owner.

You'll probably notice the wrong colour bit a few months down the line and then you'll think Charlie did say......!

Its well worth trying a site like moneysupermarket to get multiple quotes:

Car Insurance | compare cheap motor insurance quotes - MoneySupermarket UK

I also ended up with esure .

Yes I have, ambient floor lighting, rubber and carpet mats (winter/summer), grill badge and side stickers and front and rear splitters. And I upgraded the dipped, side and main beam bulbs. Oh and a sensible spacesaver spare wheel.

I would say, have a careful think about the ipod connector as the functionality of it is very limited, I did a bit of reading on here and decided against it. Do a search for Ipod and have a look for yourself.

Here's one thread on it to start you off. http://www.civinfo.com/forum/ipods-m...pod-cable.html

Also have a look in the dealer section on here for any extras you are thinking of buying.
Holdcroft Honda are well worth a try.

What did you end up paying with esure Munro, if you don't mind me asking.

They've quoted me £313, fully comp with protected NCD.

Bienvenue !
Welcome !

R-type, thats the other engine I would like to have in my car.

During the waiting, use the wiki section and the search button as much as you can to learn most of the things you can dream about your spaceship.

Don't forget to give your feelings about your dealer (in the Wiki section) once you've got your spaceship.

And after having driven your new ride for some times don't forget to fulfill the various surveys.

If you need specific answer to your questions, do not hesitate to create new threads, there are always lot of people ready to help !

You will see this place is the place to be if you like or if you have trouble with your car

Talking about Brodders?

What has happened to that laddie?

Is he taking exercise, to prepare for his birthday next month, or has TC kicked him to touch?
