Is it big enough?

Spent the last three or four months looking for a replacement for my wifes 10 year old Puma. That was a good motor, distinctive, a bit girly, drove well, but there seemed no natural replacement. Criteria? Does it look OK will a set of gold club, trolley and bits fit in the boot? Even if it were a Veyron it would be a rubbish car if her clubs didnt fit! Enter Honda and a very recent 2.2 EX. I like it, golf clubs will fit and memsahib thinks its great. She does want rear sensors though and already I have found a post, on this site, telling how its done. Good Start. So after years of exotica (couple of Imprezas, last STi) its a dose of realism for me at least. Hope it turns out well and I will be visiting this site often for all the help I can get.

Well thank you sirs!

Thanks for you warm welcome. Already finding the Tardis nature of the Civic, particularly after the Puma which had a postage stamp rear view and intimate seating arrangements. Impressed with Honda so far. Confused by the Sat nav operation, and voice commands in general, but we will sort it. Off to Bristol today for the first major outing.Listening out!

Steer clear of McDonalds in Calais, it's not all it's cracked up to be!

Join into the site's goings on.

We need imput to keep the juices flowing.

Several guys round my way have chucked in their Veyron's and gone out and bought Civic's.

......the second hand price of Veyrons has plummeted just check out Glass's Guide, they don't even list them any more!
