Planning on putting a deposit down today...

..on a Civic Sport Diesel. My first Honda. Anything I should know before I do the deal?
The price they've quoted is £11,600 for an 07 07 Alabaster Silver with 4,300 miles on it. Sound good? I'm gonna try and work then down to £10,500 with tax and mats included.

That you are buying the coolest car for the money.

Before you pick it up, have a look at the new car checklist in the Wiki.

Hi and welcome

I think you are buying a great car and I would recommend you getting it, but there again we are biased.

Take a good look through the forum and the Wiki section and the Bugs section so you have a good wide knowledge of the car.

Every car has it's problems so don't be put off by that, instead look forward to enjoying a good looking car with good performance and economy

Thanks for the the advice guys. I'll get on the Wiki and have a look.
It'll be a good couple of weeks before I've got the keys but I can't wait to have it on my driveway. I've been driving an old VW Polo saloon (1.9Sdi) with no poke in it for over two years whilst at uni so this will be a welcome change

Does Sport and Diesel go together in the same sentence
