Talking Picking my new baby up in four hours and fourty minutes...

Hello to all,
I found this forum whilest i was still deceiding what car to get, and after reading many posts just had to get me a civic! i am on a second by second countdown till i can collect her! i've even been down just to look at her over the weekend! in just under five hours i will be swapping my tempermental Y reg kermit green polo for a gorgeous 57 1.4 vivid blue pearl! which hopfully isn't going to give me as much trouble as the polo has.
I haven't even got the car yet and i'm already creating a list of things i want to go with her... It's a good thing cristmas is only round the corner...
Sacha

Welcome to the madhouse.

My sister had a W reg Polo a few years ago and that was a heap of trouble as well. The worst was when the rear wheel bearing seized up and we didn't get home until about 3 in the morning.

Hey, another 1.4 SE in VB! Welcome to the most exclusive Civic club! Thankfully you won't dilute my personal exclusivity as we're at opposite ends of the country, but I'll be in the South West over the weekend, I'll keep an eye out for ya.

Apols it's two days past your original post; I've been away.

Welcome to Civinfo!

well i only had the car for six months but in that time the egr valve went, the clutch pedal box sheared off, the ignition coil went, the clutch cable needed replacing, and the throttle pedal sensor went, as well as the fuses playing up all the time so i'd have no brake lights, or any lights. had to drive back from north wales once without going into first gear at any point, that was fun!
But i picked her up and now am completely obsessed with her!

yep got her, i'm enjoying her immensely, makes traffic jams much more enjoyable! no pics yet, it's been raining since i got her, and having a little light is helping for taking pics, plus she has things to be added to her yet.
she's attracting unwanted attention already though( i live in relatively high crime area)... some dodgy looking fiesta was driving up and down the street and kept parking next to her in the small hours the other night, they were looking in and looking all around then they'd drive up and down the road, and park next to her again, then up and down a few more times and park over the other side of the street, very suspicious behaviour... how easy are these cars to steal? i've stuck a steering lock on her that basically encases 2/3rds of the steering wheel i'm hoping that will put them off til i get my falcon alarm in there a week on friday. i'm just paranoid that i'm going wake up and she'll be gone...
