Hi from Northampton

Just purchased my first Civic and picked it up yesterday, well pleased so far. I've bought a 5 door 2.2 i-cdti ES in Nighthawk Black on an 08 plate. Must say I found this forum very useful prior to buying and I'm sure I'll continue to do so.

Hi mate, welcome

I have ordered the same as yours virtually. You're lucky lol. I wanted the ES not the EX but various dealers told me they couldnt get one in nighthawk black so I had to negotiate an upgrade to the EX.. got the upgrade for half price.

Was it a good drive? Did you find anything wrong when you picked it up? (from the checklist) Hopefully mine will go smooth next month

I had to go up to Stratstone in Leeds to get mine (so much cheaper than local dealers), which worked out okay as I go there quite regularly anyway. They actually had two in black when I first enquired, one with the beige interior that had done around 4k and another with the standard interior that had done 2k miles and was 200 less. The other half loved the beige cloth interior but when I went back it had sold. Didn't really bother me at all as I bought the other one and saved 200, plus it only has 2000 miles on the clock.

No problems at all when I picked it up on Friday, dealer was excellent throughout the sale. Have driven it quite a bit over the weekend and have not been disapointed at all. Only thing I think I'll need to purchase will be rear parking sensors, I'm finding rear visibility slightly limited, however I was trying to park in a tight spot in driving rain and in the dark last night. I had them on my last car and you don't realise how much you rely on them.
