Hey guys! My names Alex
Hey guys, great forum been reading for a couple of weeks now and contributing the odd comment/opinion here and there.
Saddly im not a Civic owner........ yet!
im a finalist at loughborough uni this year, in my masters year on mechanical engineering. i got a job all lined up for when i finish and its going to pay rather well. As im also car-less at the moment, ill need a new car and being quite an excitable fellow when it comes to cars i already began researching!!!
my research has lead me to the Civic Type S (and the C4 VTR+) and thus this website and since being here (and going to a honda stealership to sit in a few cars) im pretty much sold on the Honda! so ill be looking to join the club very soon with a Type S 1.8 of some description!
its a real head vs heart thing (the C4 is cheaper to buy, run, insure etc) but i just know if i buy a C4, every time i get in it ill think...." i could of had an even crazier dash board than this!!!!" ... plus its french :P and citroen are still bottom of the pile in things like the top gear survey.
so i think ill do what i usually do in these situations and, providing nothing better arises between now and a few months time, ill go with the heart.
by summer next year, 2nd hand prices will be just where i want them...hopefully i can find one in black.
so hello!, nice to meet you all.
