Another Swede!

Hello there people. I've been lurking around this place for a week now and have come to the conclusion that this place, is awesome! Time to make an introduction I thought;

Soo, I'm "Bravo". 23 years old dude with basicly no past experience with cars, at all (Except what Hollywood have tought me of course!), since I live in the big city where local traffic takes me anywhere both faster and cheaper. I actually dont even have my drivers license yet!

"What the hell?" you may think. Well, the thing is that I kinda fell in love with this new Civic a few months ago, and I instantly felt I just had to have one myself. So off I go to the damn driving-school again, while the interest is on rage. At the same time I've been searching for my future Civic on the internet, which I finally found two weeks ago.

Today is a great day for me, because I finally recieved the keys to my own Civic 1.8 Sport -07 from a not too happy seller (Imagine what a pregnant stubborn wife can make you do, hah!). Yes, I'm now also broke and have to feed on noodles and water for a month or two, but what the hell, I have a Civic!

Hopefully I have my driving license within a month. At least that will give me some time to clean my incredibly dirty baby (Damn swedish winter!), and get familiar with all the gadgets and buttons Finding this forum is probably the best thing that could've happen in the process. Great place for info, guides and tips, while there also seems to be a lot of nice and mature people around!

Okay, so, this became quite a long introduction, and I dont even have any cookies to share with you guys still reading I'll just throw in a first quicky-picture instead! Cheers guys!

Hehe, first impression when I found this place was "Oh, it's a british forum". But lately I've really noticed how many scandinavians there are around here as well. That's great if you need help with translations or more local retailers

And it's actually nice to have a european forum without any loud americans for once :P

Orättvist! The Type-R would be so awesome, but unfortunately I'm already way over my budget :P It's quite funny how that works anyway, instead of being a max limit of your price-range, it quickly becomes the minimum of price-range instead But congrats to you sir!

Not to sure about the bit about being a "little USA"... but the rest of it is spot on as you say.
