Hello from another new user!


Just signed up to do some research - it's car changing time! Current car is a 2003 CTR (owned from new), looking to economise a little but retain at least some driving pleasure

Will have a 5d 1.8 sport to test for a couple of days this week. I've mainly been browsing the "known issues" threads and checking out various sorts of roofbars. Also quite interested in the facelift plans since I'll be buying towards the end of the year. Lots of useful information on here, I'll probably still be digging through it next week...

Anyone on here carry kayaks on top of theirs?

Hi Zax and welcome

I am sure you are finding the site useful and loaded with information. The Wiki section also has a load of information in it too

It will be interesting to see what you think are the differences between the old CTR and the new 1.8 Sport.

Thanks for the welcome! Maybe I'll do a mini-review, it will help to get things clear in my mind also.

Last week's test was the Mini Cooper clubman, next week is a Skoda Roomster, so I'm covering all of the bases as far as "slightly unusual cars" are concerned The temptation to stay with Honda is strong, we also run a CRV which has served us well (although it's currently in for 140,000km service, waiting for the SMS with the final bill now )
