New Civic Tomorrow!

I pick up our new Civic Type S GT 2.2 cdti in tangerine with 18" blades tomorrow morning. Its an 08 plate ex dealership demo model with a tad over 7000 miles. Got it for a decent price, and my missus haggled very well with the salesman to get a lot for our part exchange, so we are a pair of happy bunnies. I m already dreaming of the prospect of an ECU re map, but not sure yet (what with the old warranty issues etc) so we will see. I will need to do something though, as my brother in law has a 2005 Type R. (lucky bugger). nice forum by the way!
